No matter how many times you say it I wont accept it
      I once said the same thing. Then God changed my mind.

Some will enter the kingdom of God and some will go to outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth (to use some older style English).
      Of course you and 91 have to ignore much scripture to hold this view.
      Carry on...

      May I ask how an RC purist living in the Australian bush country has the experience to say "many protestant bible colleges..."?

      If you are right, then God is abandoning them...

      ================================================== ============================================

      Way back in January 2018 (Post #217 on Page 22) I asked a couple of important questions. Whether people realise it or not (their preconditioning could be a problem), the precise answers throw strong light on this topic.

      In Post #125, the Poster gave this direct answer to the question “saved from what”: Saved from the just wrath of God is the answer.

      I pointed out that none of the creeds actually says that.

      ================================================== ============================================

      I therefore felt the need to seek clarification regarding:
      - What form or forms does that just wrath of God take?
      - When is that form, or when are those forms, actually applied?

      ================================================== ============================================

      Unfortunately, there was no meaningful response (that I have noticed).

      So, I ask again (hoping for meaningful information this time):
      - What form or forms does that just wrath of God take?
      - When is that form, or when are those forms, actually applied?

      What are the precise answers?



      One would think that if people believed their understandings to be scriptural, they would be proud to lay those understandings before us. Isn’t that so?

      ================================================== ============================================
      Seeking to understand with precision, God's holy and coherent revelation to us.
