You won't find a teaching of Jesus Christ that supports universal reconciliation.

You keep telling yourself that Eddie. You don't hear The Word, you have never heard The Word.

And yet YOU feel the need to change them and re-write them. You now claim they were written EXACTLY the way that was needed, and yet you say you are re-writing them.
WTAF ?????
Are you on drugs ? Tongue

Nope. Clean and sober. The fact is, the Veridican Gospel of Jesus Christ was always intended for this age. The other Gospels were written for the previous age. This is the age of the second coming. It began in 1945. It will last a thousand year, maybe more. Until the end of the earth, I suppose.

The four NT Gospels and the Gospel of Thomas were created and were useful, but they were always intended to be the ingredients of the Veridican Gospel. That's a fact. Yes

Sure it is. Sure it is dear. Bla bla bla bla bla. And you don't have delusions of grandeur. No. Not at all. Weeping
It's also a fact that with every post you prove yourself to be loonier than a fucking fruitcake.
And of course the Lord of the Universe waited for YOU to come along to get what needed to be done, accomplished with the gospels.
Nothing happened in 1945. I sure hope you don't think is has to do with the fact that the democracy (NOT KINGDOM as was "prophesied"), comprised of more of Arabs than Jews.

You are good for good humor. There is that. That's about all though.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

So, point it out. I'm willing to change my mind. Point it out.

I'm glad you brought this up, because I want to address it. God didn't wait for me; God created me specifically for this.

And it's not like the Gospel wasn't there--but the Gospel record was not finished. I know this. A single Gospel record is required to prepare the elect for the age of the Second Coming of Christ--one that is synthesized with the Gospel of Thomas.

No, it's not false. It is not logical to conclude atheism from the observations available to us both materialistically and philosophically. I would contend that the theism that results doesn't do much for us, but people need to do something else with their thinking-time than try to convince themselves that God doesn't exist. Yes

I need no convincing of that any more than I need convincing that there aren't fairies in my orchard.

As an atheist, I am making no claim. You still don't fucking get it.

It doesn't even make sense. How can you believe in a mechanism of salvation that is contradicted by the very being providing the salvation?

I don't expect you to comprehend this but others like KC especially may be interested.

"Barth's doctrine of election involves a firm rejection of the notion of an eternal, hidden decree. In keeping with his Christo-centric methodology, Barth argues that to ascribe the salvation or damnation of humanity to an abstract absolute decree is to make some part of God more final and definitive than God's saving act in Jesus Christ. God's absolute decree, if one may speak of such a thing, is God's gracious decision to be for humanity in the person of Jesus Christ. Drawing from the earlier Reformed tradition, Barth retains the notion of double predestination but makes Jesus himself the object of both divine election and reprobation simultaneously; Jesus embodies both God's election of humanity and God's rejection of human sin."

We are all elect. No action or belief required and not a damn thing we can do about it.

Except that the lack of evidence makes all of that extremely unlikely.

Besides, it's toxic. Drinking Beverage
