The no credence statement is to make it clear that my response is dispassionate.

You follow with an interpretation (yours) of the verses I quoted.

I merely chose to point out that:

a) The book clearly quotes "God" as stating each soul will die for its sins.
This rebuts your statement that a murder may be washed clean of his sin and enter heaven.

b) Directly contradicts that we are born into sin (the now almost obligatory christian standpoint)

This in turn leads to the question, for me at least, of legitimacy when discussing the factual authenticity of the aforementioned text.

Hence my post.

I have no dispute with your faith, whatever gets you through the day is cool with me.
I do however have an annoying habit of wanting to point out inconsistency and contradictions.

Maybe I'm playing the role a "God" ordained for me, or maybe I'm just an a*hole.
That's for others to judge.

And where does it say in anything that hey, Bellamente, I judge you
for this or that. I never judged you or anyone else. I don't judge. Only
God has the right to do that. I only tried to convey an answer to the
OP that the Rapture has nothing to do with pole alignments or axis
tilts or not having gravity to hold us down. I was merely trying to describe
a few things in my "religious handbook" as someone alluded to.

Peace to you too.

God does say that a soul will die for its sins, IF and I repeat IF, they
DO NOT ask forgiveness for their sins. If a person does not do that,
then his/her soul is lost. Lost meaning an eternity in that ugly place
called Hell.

And what you said does not rebut my statement, for a murderer CAN
have their sins erased and enter Heaven. Any sinner can be washed
of their sins if they only ask God to do that. It's no big mystery to wade
through. The key is asking for that forgiveness. Any type of sin can be
forgiven and that person CAN enter the kingdom of Heaven.

Ezekiel 18:4 God said, "Behold all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die"

Reference your book. It states it quite clearly.
Appears to have no wiggle room to me. I am not interpreting the message. I am reading the words as written.

Interestingly enough if you talk to a deeply traditional orthodox follower of the Jewish religion you maybe suprised that some regard christianity as "a blood sacrifice worshipping cult".
IF you can get them to answer honestly.

I guess its all a matter of perspective and comfort zone.......
