Question 4 JWs 1 COR 15:28

An intersting question and perhaps we don't the complete answer yet, as much more knowledge will come forth through the Millenium Reign of Jesus Christ and the gov't that will preside over the earth. One thing we know that when that time period is finished all the issues will be done away with and there will be no negative sin influence ever. That in itself will have all mankind and all who share free will under one umbrella. As to their destinies, when the kingdom is handed over back to the Father after the kingdom proceedings are finished, and the meaning all things to everyone as a question being pondered, I am not sure what that could entail. The essence of purpose is to be there.  (Thursday | post #2)

Found this today about Gods name.

One should look at the links and so on. There is a plethora of information. The best reasoning I can offer for Bible translation and some of your queries is that all the Bible writers were Hebrews and would have written in that language, and all the NT is written in Greek which would be written by people who didn't have any Hebrew texts to validate their translatings. We have touched on here the fact that in the Talmud there were protocols to rid God's name in translations circa 100 A.D. These were Jews that were very much antichrist, and also we know that there were Christians known back then to the aposltes as antichrists who wanted their agendas promoted. We also know that God's name is quoted that has the Tet in Hebrew scriptures and that the Greeks new of the Tet when they translated Hebrew scriptures well before Christ came. They left the Tet as was back then. So tradition and pressure probably got the Tet taken out of the Bible. It still got left in partially in Rev. 19: 1, 3, 4, 6 as two points of the four point Tet were 'left in'. There are many issues like bracketed words that when one researches, have all translations and their translators using. When they don't like what the WT did, they scream bloody murder, but I think the Bible reader can easily see why they are there.  (Thursday | post #3786)

YES-Jesus WAS once known as Michael

It is what the scriptures do say as I see them. The whole points are really, much more than be resurrected by which we all agree. It's about why he came, why he was resurrected, and what he did after his resurrection before his ascension and afterwards. As far as the topic headliner, I see that no one really gets on that Michael is somehow missing in the life of Christ when he's on earth and after he's been resurrected. You would think since Michael is the Archangel that the life of Christ would be his utmost interest, and God's utmost interest in having him close by for all the glorious undertakings we know and read about on Christ's life on earth. Can one not see, that perhaps, that the reason Michael was absent, was because he was the Christ?  (Thursday | post #2466)

Let's talk logic and objectivity

Ah, the subjective thinking of opinion vs the objective thinking of those who know they're right! Universes don't matter if you are speaking of a life forming in any of them. Unless your universes outnumber the probabilities of life forming in them. Now that would be too way out for me. I think most are truly amazed at life in how it operates and get befuddled at thinking too hard on how it might have arose. But there are those who think and think and trying to figure out, just what are the changes that life on a biological and physics patters have arisen: http://infidels.or g/library/modern/r ichard_carrier/add endaB.html And some of those are just into the fact that molecules will exist! Have they ever thought of how much the odds of a proton, and neutron, or electorn coming into being and having the wherewithal of meeting each other? Hmmm.  (Thursday | post #2)

What is the trinity?

And not one statement from Christendom on what a born-again experience is or where the Trinity was ever sanctioned by God, Jesus or the Bible writers. Does anyone want to belong to THAT organization?  (Thursday | post #18830)

Didn't Christ give us a model to lead a life like his? I Peter 2: 21, 22. Did the apostles who performed miracles, request that miracles be performed for them? Did they not go through tremendous hardships, and even die untimely deaths? Could they have just prayed, "spare me"?? All of Christendom is so much Perk Prayer. See what God did in my life today, stuff. Just have a conversation with one in Christendom or watch a telecast on TV. It's there everytime. Salvation is about pleasing God so he can save you, not about God seeing you are so special that he can't do without one.  (Thursday | post #2458)

About all I can agree with here is that Christ was glorfied by his death and resurrection. I would just add that glorified bodies wheither they be the chosen to go to heaven or Christ would have bodies like angels, spirit bodies, and that's why it makes sense Christ would be risen in a spirit body, and why people recognized him in such a body.  (Thursday | post #2457)

He gave up his fleshly life. That is what he came for, to redeem Adam's fleshly life he failed for. If he reneged and never really gave up his flesh, that would be what I was referring to. When we were young, we knew what Indian Giving was. It was not meant to be targeting. It's also why he neve had "blood" to show his followers after his resurrection. It was gone.  (Thursday | post #2456)

You simply are making up a scripture for yourself. Jesus never said I am not a spirit. You said it. A spirit is different than a human body. One can tell. Paul said that Jesus looked like a spirit. I Cor. 13: 8. Jesus never did anything as a miracle for himself, only to prove to other to have faith. He would never walk through walls to do any overt showing off. He did it because he was a spirit who could give faith to Thomas. Thomas would reason, yet this is the one and only Jesus I knew. He couldn't be real flesh as real flesh doesn't walk through walls. Notice the followers after the ascension in verse 52. They went to the temple doing what? Blessing GOD.  (Wednesday Feb 25 | post #2435)

It is not God's will that you pray for things that would make it more fair for you than any other person. That's selfish. Jesus told you what to pray for in the Lord's Prayer. Part of that is praying for a kingdom on earth. That will remedy any malady any person has. Unfortunately, people don't pray that way, and don't adhere to the reverence of God's name, or the reality of the kingdom of God being on earth.  (Wednesday Feb 25 | post #2433)

Hey Mad, why do they think Jesus DIED for 3 days and believe in an ETERNAL Trinity? Doesn't LOGIC dictate that the Trinity was without a 'theory' for parts of three days???!! These people don't understand that the Trinity was infused to be the TRUTH and necessary for their salvations.  (Wednesday Feb 25 | post #2432)

He gave his flesh for mankind. If the would have taken it back again, he would have been an Indian Giver and not really gave his flesh for mankind. Hence he gave his flesh up completely when he died, and had no flesh as before he died.  (Wednesday Feb 25 | post #2431)

They pray for the priviledge of trying to reach people and pray for the angels to be there for receptive ones. "If you receive free, give free," Matt. 10:8. Notice it doesn't say if you receive free, you get a salary. The WAGES of sin is death."  (Wednesday Feb 25 | post #2430)

You forget the part of importance you dislike and avoid. "But because they were terrified, and had become frightened, they were thinking (original Greek) they belheld a spirit." Luke 24: 37 Of course one would be terrified and frightened if they saw one who they once knew in the flesh now a spirit. He was reassuring them that indeed he was a spirit and it was really him, so he created something they could identify with. I am sure by the time he walked through a locked door, there fears had subsided. Well, except for Thomas.  (Monday Feb 23 | post #2385)
