Who knows the answer to your question. It's all hypothetical. The Bible starts out with: "In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth."-Genesis 1:1 Now, that doesn't really tell us anything, but when you go to verse two you find: "Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the...

Those quotes aren't what Jesus or Paul said. Jesus said "this is my body." Paul said "this is my body." You can argue that what they meant was "means," but that is not what they said. I hate it when people mess around with translations to this extreme - keep the interpretation out of the text you t...

Now here's a challenge, lyons. Debate on this forum without the help of the watchtower society. Who says I get my information from the Watchtower Society?

Actually, Anthony, you're wrong. Easter is not Christian. Jesus Christ commanded us to remember his death because that had the true meaning, not his birth or resurrection-those did nothing for us as humankind. "As they continued eating, Jesus took a loaf and, after saying a blessing, he broke it and...

1. You only have five scriptures even relevant to what the Hebrew people believed. The latter half is New Testament work. Odd, isn't it, when there's a multitude of scriptures that suggest more than one. Of course, you'll just disregard that little fact, because, hey, you've already made up your mi...

The Jews believed in One True God and all other gods were false. Just because the Bible talks about other gods does not mean they are real. What about these?

It's literal. If it was poetry it would be with the poetry books: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon. We could add another book, I guess. Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Genesis 1-3, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon. And the books of the Law could be Genesis 4-Deuteronomy. Again, it's literal.

My problem with the Jehovah's witness concept of the afterlife is this: when someone dies, everything-soul and body- dies. There is nothing left.

Lyons, I'm not arguing about your theology right now. Well, I suppose I am, but indirectly.

Eriador, it's not Scripture contradicting Scripture. It's interpretation contradicting interpretation. For example: I say, "The Bible says that when we die we are just dead.

I feel that bias has allowed Ender and Bean to become the most commonly chosen character. But with their wands and magic, Harry and Ron would win. It's logic.

From the first paragraph of this website, it seems that the Jews do not really know what they believe on the matter. Traditional Judaism firmly believes that death is not the end of human existence. However, because Judaism is primarily focused on life here and now rather than on the afterlife, Juda...
