[quote]Those feelings will never be removed from the human condition, they are necessary for relativity to exist.


Not true, i use none of those emotions...they're just not needed.

The only thing we'll experience in paradise is joy and peace. The love of God is knowledge so we'll be loved plenty as we speak to each other.

You are not in a survival situation.

The instinctual centers within your brain are responsible for extreme emotions, and you CANNOT fight those structures within your brain.

Even if you find canabalisim abhorrent, you WILL eat somebody when you become hungary enough. You don't usually use that kind of reasoning do you?

And your response in no way means that my statement was not true. It is. Check it out on a neurology website.

How can you have love in your "paradise" without its opposite, hate?

You MUST have up vs. down of some sort for anything to exist.

Inverse polarity principle...I wonder who though that up?


Cuz it kinda explains it....

The world we're living in is deluded by our corrupt flesh. Once all the flesh has died during this age and we get a new earth that's level for all God's people, we'll get new bodies that won't have corrupt DNA. That means we won't experience all these emotions that we have now.

Well, love is easy, there are like five kinds of love, that means different feelings towards different persons, so it doesn't really need hate to exist, on the other hand, whats happiness without sadness? whats peace without war?

Lets ponder a curious thought that came to me...

You say that one should have a total absense of hatred, correct?

Now, that kind of aborration for something, is usually call a "hatred" of it.

You are in essence, hating on hate.
This is no different than those who hate on love, or any other emotion.

Are you familiar with the ideas of a man named Hippocrotus? You should read up on him.

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel.
— Galatians 1:6

I watched a very famous preacher being interviewed awhile ago on television. When the topic of sin came up, the preacher said, "I never talk about sin. I never use the word 'sin,' because people already know they are sinners. I am not here to beat people down. I just want to lift them up." However, I don't think that most people know they are sinners. And our job is not just to lift people up; it is to point them to Christ. So we have to use the word "sin."

There is a counterfeit gospel. The apostle Paul wrote to the churches of Galatia, "I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel" (Galatians 1:6). Just because someone uses the term "gospel" doesn't mean he or she is referring to the genuine gospel. Even if someone claims they are preaching the gospel, that doesn't necessarily mean it is the real gospel. For the gospel to be genuine, certain things must be in place. And one of those things is the acknowledgment that everyone has sinned. As 1 John 1:8 says, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."

The only solution for our sin being removed is the cross. If the cross is not proclaimed, then it is not the gospel. Any proper presentation of the gospel includes the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Paul wrote to the believers at Corinth, "For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2).

Whenever there is the genuine, there also will be the counterfeit. And the devil has his fake version of just about everything—even the gospel.

I marvel that so many people can look at each other in a church, and not start laughing histerically at their sheer ignorance..


It's like a buch of sheep going to worship at the slaughterhouse, except sheep wouldn't have to throw money on a plate! LMAO

Is there a deity of some sort? Well, there's no reason to actually believe that one exists as there is no evidence for the claims perpetuated by anyone claiming a deity exists.

A deity implies that it is something outside of oneself. To me this is missing the point.
God can not be other than, because there is nothing but god.

Many are limiting their mind with human intellect, you can never get the scope of God's mind as long as you live in the box of man's own intellect. We are limited to our thinking without making the spiritual connection to God, it is impossible to even begin to understand.
In the end, I don't think a lot of people want to accept the fact or idea that there is a God. They don't want to accept the fact that they are arrogant in their thinking. They don't want to admit that they are limited to their grasp on a higher power who is God. It is beyond comprehension by most people and that's the way it stands. These are the last days, never in all history has there been this large amount of a rejection of God, and Christ.

May God have mercy on us all.

For one, I don't really care if I get stars or not. That is not my goals. All I want is for people to stop blaming Christianity for all the problems in society, and the world. And instead look at the men and women that caused so much of the problems that exist today. As for religion, again I say it is man made, it is not in the same category of Christianity.

And, no one knows when the end will come. What I do know is that life as we know it will change from what it has been, and many won't like it.

You made me laugh in a very good way, thanks.

I hope one day you'll understand what it is. It's not a bad thing you know, it's just too many people confuse it all and mislead a lot of people throughout the years. It's not Christianity, it's religion and mans ego controlling it instead of just letting God do it. It's not a perfect world.
