If one person let's say Freddy, did something horrible to another person, let's say Chris.
If Freddy repents and is sorry for the things he done and he apologises to Chris, Chris forgives him but does not EVER want to see him again, what happens when they both go to heaven?
Will Freddy have to avoid Chris for all eternity? What will Jesus do about the situation when they see each other in heaven?
The Creation Museum features a LOT of dinosaurs...unfortunately. Why? Why are they succumbing to evolutionist mythology just to gain attention from kids? A real creationist knows that dinosaurs never existed.
Look, I understand dinosaurs have been a big part of pop culture, but really...it's just a big fat lie fabricated by Satan. Mm-hmm. Satan knew what looked ''cool'' and ''sharp'' to we vulnerable sinful human beings--especially evolutionists!
Due to our sinful nature, it's just natural for us to look at a dinosaur--with claws and teeth and scales--and exclaim ''cool!'' without ever being skeptical. The mass simply wish that dinosaurs existed, and have been refusing to admit that dinosaurs never existed.
But hereby I cry out...
My belief is that a community only functions to the extent that people conform to the general expectations of the community.
So, what is the value of establishing rules, if you don't enforce the rules when they are violated?
I work in a professing Christian facility that I see rules established but not enforced all the time. So, I am wondering, am I simply wrong and rules are only set up, for the gullible ones of us who believe we are to follow rules, with the expectation by rule-makers that most of us will conform and therefore the overall community will function the way they want anyway?
An elementary school principal in Nebraska was suspended for telling teachers not to have "J" shaped candy canes decorating the classroom. Reason? The "J" looks like Jesus! Do you think she went through all other candies to make sure there was nothing else that might offend?
I don't think many would even think to ask this or even take any notice of the subject when they read it. The whole thing is clearly speaking of the messiah and those who follow him. Could it be so few notice the "rest of the story" because it clashes with their world view and what the messiah aims to accomplish with his people? Jesus quotes the part in red about himself in Luke's Gospel.
1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings to the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to...
And I'd suggest a reading of D&C 88, which is talking about the resurrection, not about becoming like God. In this context, they are talking about "being equal with God" to living in God's presence -- essentially the same idea as going to Heaven. This appears to be a prime example of quote mining.
When in doubt, go to the source that is published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Don't take my word for it --- read their words for it:
D&C 88:107. The Saints Will Be Filled with God’s Glory and “Be Made Equal with Him”
The sons and daughters of God possess the potential to become like their parents.
