Furthermore, there is no Calvinist, Presbyterian, Reformed, Congregational, Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopalian or non-denominational way to get to heaven. And there is no Baptist way to get to heaven. There is only one way to get to heaven, and Jesus Christ is that way. Period. No debate. No discussion. Jesus is God's Plan A and He is not going to ever have a Plan B. There it is. Take it or leave it.
I really wish you would learn to come to the point. Kidding!
These religions don't Jesus. It's simple. Jesus said He was the ONLY way, and that comes across as terribly arrogant to a selfish people. It's a twisted and sinful way of thinking and being so deceived they can't even see it.

Yeah, and life as we know it, I'd say, if his clan ever made it past the NPZ, normal people zone. Frightening to consider... Good to hear from you, Watcher.
Thanks ol boy! Keep the walls up and the free bacon handy and you should have little to be concerned about from the likes of him. Personally if this museum was situated in a mobile home park their visitor count would have surpassed this mark on its very first day!

"People" tend to think that a religious exhibit should focus on religion. That would be like an Muslim exhibit focusing on fashion. When you put yourself out there with a Bible-based exhibit, you are expected to stick with the Bible. Just my thinking, but I might be out to lunch as usual.

Carl haydock wrote: Hi guys,this is off topic but I need advice. I lost my mom in February but it's still making me weep daily. No matter what I do something reminds me of her. Have you guys any tips on handling things?
Hi Carl,I lost my mom in 1993. She was my only friend, and yes, it was 25 years ago now, but for years, I would literally every night have the same dream of her coming in the front door and hugging me saying, "It was all just a mistake. I'm back!" I would weep and embrace her, then I would wake up to the cold reality that it was just a dream. I know how you feel and even to this day, something will remind me of her, and it will set me off. Firstly, was she saved? I mean, not " I think so,", but if she was you would have known it. If not, then all the more, will your heart sorrow. My mom was Pentecostal/Word of Faith and I know she's in hell now. If your mom was saved, then praise God, you will be reunited with her soon. Know that God will heal you over time. Don't wish to forget her memory. Relish it. If you had a good relationship with her, then enjoy the memories and have a good cry, but don't let it pull you into depression. I am running out of room. Email me and we can talk more.
Connor7 wrote: On a more serious note, say Ulysses is dead and Anthony is dead, the doc does the whole head transplant thing and jolts the corpse with electricity, is it possible that demons will enter into the body to make it look like the transplant succeeded and then dwell in said body for x amount of years?
Absolutely...could a satanically empowered leader have his head severed and then magically come back to life because of this sort of procedure? The implications are scary, as far as I'm concerned.
Connor7 wrote: Pure satire. The main thrust was directed towards 'pff' and anyone who is remotely familiar with the IFB camp knows the illuminati, and Jesuit connection. Although I must say, I think the satire was pretty good, I should've added something about Alex Jones. Oh, and if you want to hear bizzare things, listen to Gail Riplinger who claimed God gave her special revelation, that the sinking of the Titanic has to do with something about the modern bible translations, her acrostic algebra, and that the reason she had her initials on her book (New Age Bible Versions) as, "G.A. Riplinger" was that it stood for "God and Riplinger" etc. etc.
I know, I know...Christians will be able to wander around headless because Christ is the head of the church! Hahaha...sorry.

Calvinists are probably involved in this scheme as well, because Calvinism was thought up by that Devil whose name in the Greek is Apollyon but in English is called John Calvin." ???? I've never heard of such strange things - is this a joke or satire? If so, please explain the punchline to me, if there is one.
Connor7 wrote: I guess I would have to ask you, if a person is dead, but then 15 minutes later they are alive, where is the soul during that time? Was the soul still in the dead person, or did it go to heaven/Hell? And is it your position that a finite material doctor can reanimate an immaterial part of man? That being the soul, spirit, conscience, et.? Gotta go
Who knows? Only God knows such answers. But being clinically dead and having your head severed from the body are two completely different things.
IF this ends up coming to pass like all the other stories we have read down through the years, then we will most likely see hybrid people with no consciences, doing the bidding of them who can control them. A scary future for sure.
Connor7 wrote: I'm saying that if you take the position of it being no bueno, then it is up for you to show where the line is, what's the difference between giving blood and head transplant, and there's a lot of "if" that is being presented. I'll say more later
The difference is when the head is severed, the soul goes back to God. What if through a Muslim attack, you were beheaded, and medical science could attach it back again and reanimate your body? Then what? Would if be the same Connor? That's impossible unless God, through His sovereignty decided to send you back again. Otherwise, your body would be nothing more than an animal.
So yes, giving blood is one thing, receiving someone else's (or your own again) head is another. A huge difference.
BTW...I can't give blood as I had leukemia as a child (and was healed from it, praise God!), and I was told that I could never give blood as a result.
Just a guy wrote: Interesting point Conner7. What is the difference between a head transplant and a liver transplant? The difference is what it does to the person. A liver transplant simply brings a disfunctioning function back to par. A head transplant changesā the humnan completely. You really become a different person.
The main point I see is:
What happens to the soul after the head is severed? What happens to the body if it is reanimated with a new head? Can anyone say, "zombie"?

Besides that, no matter what we say, or what we don't, the elect will be drawn by Him, whether we get it all right, or leave something out, etc. We can't foul up what's already been ordained, but not to say we shouldn't do our best, of course, through study and prayer to always be prepared. I'm thinking what Watcher may have been getting at is that we don't want to hit anyone all at once, on an initial witness/initial contact, with fire and brimstone; easing into things gently(?)
When the Holy Spirit saves someone, especially in this day and age, they will know full well the price for being a Christian very quickly. There's no need to add anything to the Gospel message. It can take care of itself.

That was my point exactly. The lesser evil? The bigger con-man, more like it.
John UK wrote: Kev, I never bring anything of myself to God. So yes, I quite agree with that statement. Did you agree with my statement? However, don't you think it unfair not to tell prospects of what the Christian life entails? That God redeems (purchases) the sinner by the blood of the Lamb, and they are no longer their own, but are servants/slaves of God? That the Christian life is opposite to the sinful life they have known up till now?
I personally don't think it's important to tell a lost sinner anything about their lifestyle and what to expect. In doing so, it will potentially color their decision. Just as much as the seeker-friendly gospel promises a convert 'Your Best Life Now', the opposite can be just as appealing to some people who get a kick out of pain and suffering.
We are told to preach the Gospel. We are shown the example by Jesus, Paul, Peter and Stephen that we are to use the law to point the lost to the cross. Not to lay out a list of potential problems with becoming a Christian. This only leads to a decision based on intellect and emotion.
I think there's been a misunderstanding on everyone's part here today. I have read everyone's comments and it seems everyone is jumping to the conclusion that the other is wrong without actually reading the other's comments properly.
Maybe I'm wrong, but can anyone argue against Lordship salvation? Paul Washer said something once to the fact, "I won't even bother asking you to make Jesus Lord of your life. He is Lord of your life whether you know it or not..." Jesus is Lord of heaven and hell. Earth and every square inch of the universe. No man can MAKE Jesus Lord. He is Lord and when it's time for someone to be saved (according to God's predetermined will), that soul will be given the power to declare emphatically, 'JESUS IS LORD!', and no one can convince that convert otherwise.
There really should be no such thing as Lordship salvation, because salvation in and of itself cannot be salvation outside the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
