As I showed earlier, it is a matter of where the comma goes.
Jesus didn't go to Heaven for a few weeks after He was resurrected.
Jesus wasn't in heaven THAT DAY so it obviously means that Jesus SAID to him that day...
"I say unto you this day, Thou shalt be with Me in Paradise."
Many fall into this error and it is so simple to prove Jesus did not mean that the thief would bypass Judgement day or the resurrection of the just and go straight to Heaven.
A good study of Scripture shows that when we die, we are asleep in the grave until we are resurrected.
Jesus would not contradict Himself or the rest of the Bible. He said previously that believers go to Heaven “on the last day” when He “comes again.” John 6:39, 40, 44, 54; 14:1-3. QED.
All said without research.

A: Jesus
- but I can see you didn't even use his quote accurately and then preferred to use "Paul" in the latter. Do you think "Paul" is more enlightened than Jesus?
"Tabitha had actually died. She did not testify to a paradise.
Neither did Jesus' friend Lazarus and he had been dead for days and had began to decay."
- don't believe everything you read.

- this is a good starting point to help you understand.
"Can you cite a person who had an NDE who had been dead and was stinking already who returned to life? I don't think so."
- "dead and stinking" - no.
- known an actual person who experience one - no.
- Do I believe there are people who have had them - yes
Here is a link to many people's tales.

Dr. Raymond Moody's landmark first book, "Life After Life" @1975 is actually a well-known book, as it was written from a Psychologist's perspective, and that it is very compelling and written well.

OK then, now we have a problem or five.

#1. If Judgement day comes and we find that the Heavenly courts have decided that you "didn't make it", do you then get sent to Hell after enjoying Paradise for a while?
#2. What is the point of a resurrection if we are alive and well in Paradise?
#3. Why do you prefer secular writing such as from Raymond Moody rather than what Jesus said?
#4. John 3:13 says... No one has ascended into heaven except the One who descended from heaven--the Son of Man.
#5 Why did none of the twelve resurrected in Scripture ever testify of Heaven when they were resurrected?

The Bible speaks of a resurrection. ONE DAY when all who are in the graves HEAR HIS VOICE.
Nobody goes to Heaven when they die.
If they do, show me proof.
Jesus said... Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards. Meaning after He resurrects us.
That hasn't happened ... or was I left behind?
The Catechism clearly teaches, "Each man receives his eternal retribution in his immortal soul at the very moment of his death, in a particular judgment that refers his life to Christ: either entrance into the blessedness of Heaven — through purification or immediately,— or immediate and everlasting damnation" (No. 1022).

The soul that sinneth it shall die.
Job 4:17 Shall mortal man be more just than God? Shall a man be more pure than his maker?(KJV)
1 Timothy 6:16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.(KJV)
That Christ has told us over and over that He holds out the promise of eternal life is also well documented in the Word.
John 5:28-29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.(KJV)

In short, the words 'eternal life' means you do not have to die but can live eternally, forever.

If, on the other hand, you were already born with an immortal soul that cannot die, what does this promise of eternal life from Jesus Christ mean?

In truth, if your soul could not die, it would have no meaning at all.
But, even more importantly than anything else, if the religious concept of an immortal soul were true ...
Why would God be telling us it wasn't, in the above Scriptures?
In the end, you have to answer exactly the same question Adam and Eve had to answer:
Do I believe the word of God, or Satan?

excuse me but this flake is not a Christian, he is a sda who doesnt have a clue about the Spiritual things of God.one who adds to His Word, for instance, saying that Paul had a sickness and wanted to die.this is contrary to what Paul actually meant.every Christian wants to be with Jesus, sick or not. shoot, I was ready to go Home as soon as I got up from the Altar. But Paul had a job to do for the Lord and did it.

some people have stated that Pauls thorn was [poor eyesight],[small stature]among other POV's. but this is the first time that I have ever heard some flake say it was because he was sick

The One True Catholic Church is founded on Jesus---because--Jesus "founded the Church---HIS ONE TRUE CATHOLIC CHURCH over 2000 years ago: Matthew 16:13-21---which was and is still one (Universal--Catholic Church). This agrees with both the Bible and Apostolic Church History, that followed the death and resurrection of Christ, where Paul in I Timothy 3:15 says: THE CHURCH (not the bible only) is the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH!!! Confrinting!!! after 35 years of being raised as a bible only Protestant, in Confirmation, bible school, bible theological college and pre-seminary University---I HAVE ABSOLUTELY "NO DOUBT" as to proven historical and biblical TRUTH that Jesus Christ initiated, formed and established (One and only ONE TRUE (UNIVERSAL) Church---and it was Catholic....... The fact is that Bible Only Protestantism is a "man made" (concocted) belief--which is nothing more than an "offshoot of the Reformation almost 200 years after Martin Luther.....It is a "personal opinionated (editorialized "interpretation--(or better yet mis-interpretation of the bible that has absolutely no basis of ANY biblical or historical truth to back it up!...Today--the result of "sola scriptura" is a "contradicting (hodge-podge) of over 42,000 inconsistent and conflicting denominations of distorted (half-truth Christianity, and heretical preaching and teaching by ministers (like you) who rely on condemnation and judgemental preaching of the TRUE FAITH and Salvation of other Christians and the Churches they attend--especially Catholics, in order to keep their bible only ministry "from sinking"!....The TRUTH,(has, is and will always be) in Jesus Christ and HIS ONE (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church (the bride of Christ).... God is not, ever has been, nor ever will be, the author of your bible only Protestant confusion and chaos!!

__________

Were you ever born again? Or did you just go to seminary, etc. because you admired a holy calling (NOT A BAD THING...just not enough).

The relationship I have with Jesus Christ did not come from Martin Luther...OR the Pope. It came from HIM...and brings joy unspeakable!

Ask Him to reveal HIMSELF to you. He is willing to do that. The whole thing will be clearer to you.

to many times, Have I saw NDE's while I worked in hospitals to deny that when people die they go immediately to hell or heaven. if you in your ignorance choose to believe otherwise, the truth will be revealed to you someday.Amen!
and if Karen is lurking, she also would give you the same witness that I am giving tonight.
You do talk rubbish sometimes Preston.
Grandpa may have had dreams but he never died or he would have been brain damaged. I know for fact your idea that people go to heaven or hell at death is afalse one probably brought on by the RCC so they could peddle indulgences to the gullible.
You would have mortgaged your soul to buy those worthless promises from the pope too had you lived in Tetzel's time.

Too bad you cannot explain why a resurrection if we go straight to Heaven anyway.

In June of 1995, twelve American bishops (with the support of forty other bishops who endorsed but did not sign the document) listed fifteen pastorally urgent issues which the episcopal conference is frightened to discuss because of Vatican intimidation:

presenting the minority position of Vatican II as though it were the majority
ecumenical issues
marital annulments
appointment of bishops
the relationship of episcopal conferences and Rome
collegiality in the Church
the role of women and their ordination
the shortage of priests
the morale of priests
the ordination of married men
sexual ethics
contraception
homosexuality
abortion
pedophilia

YES. I flatly deny any truth in the RCC Catechism.
So should ALL protestants as there are many errors in it.

In the Catholic world familiar spirits are untreated, bowed before, expected to protect, and advise.

In the Christian world...The Holy Ghost guides us in all truth...
Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

In the Catholic world, the compass is their catechism..
In the Christian world, the words of God is our guide and standard.

Vatican II changed Rome itself and moved Rome closer to American Catholicism than anyone might have expected.

Rome is now more defined by the American Declaration of Independence than it is by the papal Syllabus of Errors;

it is more powerfully influenced by the Declaration on Religious Freedom, a Vatican II document Americans crafted, than it is by its own condemnation of Modernism;

its present Code of Canon Law resonates with the language of the Bill of Rights and affirms equality, free speech, due process, freedom of association, freedom of inquiry and the right of privacy (this is very different from Pius X's insistence that the laity must be "led…like a docile flock, to follow their pastor").

Rome realizes that the ideas and the language of American culture create a far more credible vocabulary for modern discourse than its own monarchical system.

Vatican Embarrassed by Error-Filled Catechism Book
VATICAN CITY — The Vatican has again been embarrassed by a botched translation of its teachings, with the launch Wednesday of an error-plagued book that implies the Holy See approves of contraception and euthanasia.
The errors came to light during a Vatican press conference launching "Youcat: Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church," a youth-focused compilation of the thick volume of core church teachings. The book, a project of the Austrian, German and Swiss bishops' conferences, is to be given to young people attending this year's World Youth Day in Madrid.
The launch, though, focused heavily on translation and interpretation problems. The errors were so serious the Vatican's doctrinal watchdog, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, immediately announced it was creating a working group to compile the errors and fix them.
The Vatican's problems began on the eve of the launch, when officials confirmed that Nuova Citta, the Italian-language publisher of "YouCat," had pulled Italian copies to fix an error concerning whether married couples could plan the size of their families.
Editions handed out Wednesday crossed out the erroneous passage and included a paper insert with the correct translation. But at the news conference, another problem in the Italian edition was highlighted in a section on euthanasia. Officials also admitted that French editions had been delayed because of errors in the translation from German about how Catholics should view other religions.
