I've only seen the thread starter person answer a post once on any of his threads, and that was to do some mutual back slapping with probably one of his fellow cult members.
If that is true why does . . .

If that is true why does it say in Revlations that a name can be bloted out of the book of life? And if I remember correctly Moses state that names were to be bloted out of the book of the congergation too. The once saved always saved is a dagerous concept. Paul even said it was to put to shame Christ if one came to the knowledge of Christ then turned away and the turned back it was the same a crusifing Christ afresh.
Hebrews 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
It was actually a warfare tactic that the Romans would use in battle, where they would send out one of their well-liked members by himself against the enemy line, where of course he would get killed, but it would get "the blood up" in their own soldiers who would want to wreak vengeance on the opposing army.
That is truly disgusting, savage, and written by ignorant men in an ignorant part of the world.

If Satan cannot touch the body of Christ, then why did Paul instruct us to put on the armor of God, to resist the devil, to stand firm, and to be alert?
If we are not susceptible to being wounded or trapped by Satan, why does Paul describe our relationship to the powers of darkness as a wrestling match? Those who deny the enemy’s potential for destruction are the most vulnerable to it.
Everywhere you are thought arises - thought is always appearing and tempting you - it shows you better times and places and promises you more. This moment is god given but the voice (thought/satan] distracts you and makes you deny God.
Even though our eternal destiny is secure and the armor of God is readily available, we are still vulnerable to Satan’s accusations and temptations. If we give into these, we can be influenced by Satan, and if we remain under his influence long enough, we can lose control, if we fail to stand against him. Ownership is never at stake, Satan cannot touch our new identity, but as long as we are living in this fleshly body, we can allow ourselves to be vulnerable targets to all Satan’s fiery darts. How do you think Satan carries on his worldwide ministry of evil and deception? He is a created being; he is not omnipresent, omniscient, or omnipotent. He cannot be everywhere in the world tempting and deceiving millions of people at the same moment.
