Originally posted by okbmdSo, tell me how you have refuted anything I have said on the subject? I saw nothing in you post that would indicate such.
Originally posted by okbmdHow about you show something to substantiate your position instead of simply making a statement and expecting everyone to take it as gospel ? I have shown, with information that can be verified, that we are all going to 'hell' .
Originally posted by okbmdYou, on the other hand, have given us nothing other than your personal position on this matter., which is what christians are notorious for doing .
Originally posted by okbmdTartarus is also from Greek and Roman M-Y-T-H-O-L-O-G-Y !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Originally posted by okbmdIt is only used ONE time in the ENTIRE Bible. Why do you suppose ?
Originally posted by okbmdI had intended to elaborate on Tartarus in a subsequent thread, but you are slightly forcing my hand.
Originally posted by okbmdTartarus is indeed a place of punishment., in MYTHOLOGY. I cannot translate the entire Bible for you all in one thread, but surely had plans to show that the 'eternal punishment' and 'judgement' themes have their roots in mythology.
Originally posted by okbmdIn the meantime, how about showing your hand as far as refuting anything I have said., if indeed you are able.
Originally posted by okbmdAlso, how about doing a little homework before telling me about 'lumping' Sheol into any categories.
Originally posted by okbmdIt would make you look a lot more credible and a lot less ignorant if you would research what I say instead of simply replying to it out of a passion for your cherished mythological religion.

I'm not going to hell.
I will be seen - Just as God sees His Son, God sees me.
I'm more than that sparrow that God sees fall because Jesus carries me.
And Jesus will carry you.
It's so simple.
It's only a matter of faith... And love...
The people who try to complicate it - are either afraid, or ignorant...
And I mean that in the kindest way possible...
Peace is right there for you to reach out and take, for you, forever...
Pride Main article: Pride In almost every list Pride (Latin, superbia), or hubris, is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and indeed the ultimate source from which the others arise. It is identified as a desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to acknowledge the good work of others, and excessive love of self (especially holding self out of proper position toward God). Dante's definition was "love of self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbour." In Jacob Bidermann's medieval miracle play, Cenodoxus, pride is the deadliest of all the sins and leads directly to the damnation of the titulary famed Parisian doctor. In perhaps the best-known example, the story of Lucifer, pride (his desire to compete with God) was what caused his fall from Heaven, and his resultant transformation into Satan. In Dante's Divine Comedy, the penitents were forced to walk with stone slabs bearing down on their backs to induce feelings of humility.
