Clay, do not have the arrogance to tell us our Bible came from the RCC. The "nonsense" I "preach is straight from the Bible you claim is yours. It is as ancient as the Gospels. Just your church changed the doctrine of it into a false one.<quoted text>
The Bible belongs to the Catholic Church and you know it.
It did not pop out of the sky and handed out for all to determine their own Christianity.
Now quit being so stupid. Those verses you attempt to teach on were already explained once.
Jesus Christ did not start a Book, He started a Church. If you claim Christ instituted the Books of the Bible to be His authority on His Ministry, could you provide a verse stating such an absurdity??
The Holy Scriptures were collected by the Church and added to the Hebrew Books in the 4th century by the Catholic Church at Rome.
Tiger, this is irrefutable undeniable historic fact.
This nonsense you preach is about 150 yrs old and ever evolving. THAT is what a cult does...
Only by denying all the texts I have given have you a hope of convincing anyone but a dogmatic ignoramus that we go to Heaven when we die.
Death is a sleep. Your Bible tells us so.
Ultimately, Bible truth about death is comforting. Our beloved dead are sleeping quietly, awaiting the resurrection when Jesus returns. Truth also protects us from being deceived by heartless, tricky demons who can easily impersonate the dead.
Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth - those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation (John 5:28, 29, NKJV).
Nothing here which says our spirits are already there!
Note the TWO resurrections. Judgement day decides which resurrection you will take part in.
