  1. I think most people don't sin. In PFAL, VPW said most people sin before breakfast. That should have been a big red flag for me. Trying to convince me that I was sinning all the time, I guess. A bunch of self-righteous brow-beating.
  2. Dear Mike, I am somewhat entertained by your attempts to transform these people into your idea of how they should be thinking about you and your endless babblings, and it's pretty disgusting to see your desire for worship, first for you to worship you and then for others to worship you. Your relentless pursuit of the ghost of VPW will end and be cast down to the ground. Neither you or anyone else is made in the image of VPW or PFAL. We, each one of us, is made in the image of God, not man, and until you respect this you will not find any true answers, even when they are in plain sight. Love you
  3. I would have to say - Do Not Do this Essay! This is a corrupt organization that will use your own words against you to trap, intimidate, and coerce you into following their lead. It's just one more thing for them to sink their hooks in to you.
  4. It's one thing to get out of the way, and that's not easy, and another thing to get the way out of ourselves, a lot harder, I believe. As you know well, BecomingMe. It took me quite a few years of attacking this way thing in my head, before I think it was finally done. Looking at it now and from the past, I was battling myself, not someone else or some kind of god or devil. A lot of people helped, whether they know it or not. Mostly people from Greasespot, but others as well.
  5. I don't believe Christ is absent or missing.
  6. If Christ is not absent, then why is there a "return"? Or "coming of the Lord". It must be talking about something other than what we were taught.
  7. Reminds me of Scrooge who didn't realize he had so much to give until he saw his own tombstone. Most people won't see much until they die, which is not a bad thing, just happens like that. Old Scrooge died that day, and things changed inside of him.
  8. Maybe it's time to grow up and out of using the imagination to point at extraneous material gain, blaming everyone else, and point that imagination at yourself and soon to learn that peace, prosperity, joy, love, hope, faith is there for you when the reality of what has been done in you begins to surface.
  9. I've never liked having only two choices on anything. There is more to God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus the Christ than a bunch of doctrinal debates, more than anything anyone could actually put into words. "I and my father are one", it doesn't say in purpose at all. Becoming one, as stated in Genesis, was not in purpose either. Who has the courage to face themselves with no one else to argue with?
  10. The administration teaching is not exclusive to twi, but yeah, set those aside for a moment and consider the scriptures. Without a timeframe consider life as a whole.
  11. Part of a problem deal about scripture and what is taught, is that the thinking is chronological, things happening in some kind of order that is studied. If any timetable is removed, a new light can be found in understanding. Is the bible the word of God? I think of it as scripture, and that is not the only source to find scripture. The word of God to any person does not need a bible or book as a go between, an advocate or like anything between you and God. Luther made a point long ago when studying the scriptures that there is nothing between God and men concerning righteousness.
  12. The trinity has just as much truth in it as the opposition to it.
  13. as if the devil was something set apart from Jesus at that time, not so me thinks having this power Jesus was "tempted", seeing what he could do, decided
  14. No to the question. I'm still a child of the one who could "come up" with me.
  15. As a father I want the best for my kids. That involves letting them think for themselves a lot, even if they are wrong. From my children's perspective I am both good and bad, depends on the day, or moment, or year. I am the thief, the destroyer and I give them an abundant life, as much as is in my power. As they have grown, they see more of what actually happened, and still happening.
  16. My wife and I made 2 sons. I've told them not to do some things and they did it anyway. And I've told them to do some things that they didn't do.
  17. I know what that teaching is, I disagree, I don't think that is what these scriptures are saying.
  18. To be clearer, I don't think anyone will miss out on the day of the Lord. Each person will have that day soon enough. I don't believe that this happens to everyone all at the same time, as those bible versions seem to indicate. And timing is not so important as the fact that it will happen.
  19. 2 Thessolonians 2: 1 & 2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Looks like these verses are speaking in the present tense to me. Although we were taught by the way that it was some time in the future.
  20. Vpw contradicted everything he taught. In the same classes and books. While teaching that it's Christ in you, he contradicts saying that Christ is not present now but will return at a later day. Teaching one spirit and then the giver and gift which is two, not one. Teaches eternal life but denies the resurrection. Teaches one body but splits everyone into categories of his own choosing.
  21. I'm really tired of hearing scripture used to threaten people. It's insanity. If anyone is even close to understanding 1 Corinthians, they would know better.
  22. Looks like they are just reading the book and too damn happy. Nothing "today" about it.
  23. lol.... are you yelling at me mike? lol Maybe you missed the parts in pfal that talk about what is going to happen to those who do not believe according to pfal.
  24. So, let's sum it up. You know, math. If you don't believe that pfal and the collaterals and vpw and, of course mike are not breathing out god's word then you are going to endure the wrath of god. Too funny
