    In the end, good will be called evil and evil will be called good.

    In the end, most Americans will be begging for Jesus to save them.
    Just give them time.

    In the end they'll plant you in the ground or roll you into the furnace.

    Either way you won't know it and will be incapable of caring.

    My physical body will go into the grave, but my soul and my spirit will go to Heaven.
    Only my physical body dies at death.

    My outward man is nothing more than a sinful shell that is doomed for the grave.
    My inward man is renewed every day and will never die.

    Unsaved people take a different course.

    Where on earth did you get this ^^^ tripe? It is an anti-Christian statement on its face.

    We should know what place our physical body occupies in the purpose and plan of God. Can anyone deny the relationship between the body and spirituality? In addition to a spirit and a soul we also have a body. However healthy may be the intuition, communion and conscience of our spirit and however renewed the emotion, mind and will of our soul, we can never develop into spiritual men and women-never be perfected but continually lacking in some way if our body is not as sound and restored as are our spirit and soul. We should not neglect our outer shell while attending to our inner components. Our life shall suffer if we commit this blunder.

    The body is necessary and important; otherwise God would not have created man with one. By accurately searching the Scriptures we can discover how much attention God pays to man's body, for the Bible has a lot to say about it. Most singular and awesome of all is the fact that the Word became flesh: the Son of God took upon Himself a body flesh and blood: and though He died He wears this garb forever.

    Be careful making statements like that.

    Are you Christian? If so, what denomination?
    The answer to this will help me better understand your posts.

    I'm a King James only Fundamental Baptist, and a dispensationalist.

    But the answer to where I get that belief is in the New Testament.

    This one should be interesting.

    You have an Eastern Orthodox that believes the Biblical knowledge he has was whispered by Peter to Paul and then passed down verbatim through his church to the present day.

    Versus

    A fundamentalist Baptist that believes the 1769 King James Bible were the words whispered by God to Moses, verbatim in Old English.

    That 1769 edition of the 1611 Bible is the last acceptable "version" of the Bible. ALL later versions have been purposefully altered by atheist and agnostic publishers with an anti-Christian agenda.

    We're talking versions of the Bible, not translations.

    There's a ton of information on the Bible version issue.
    You'll be amazed at the completely unnecessary changes that have been made to the Bible since the 1880's.

    God did not speak to Moses in Old English.

    No sir. This is the Christianity vs fundamentalism.

    Καὶ εἰς τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον, τὸ Κύριον, (καὶ) τὸ ζῳοποιόν, τὸ ἐκ τοῦ Πατρὸς ἐκπορευόμενον, τὸ σὺν Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ συμπροσκυνούμενον καὶ συνδοξαζόμενον, τὸ λαλῆσαν διὰ τῶν προφητῶν. Εἰς μίαν, ἁγίαν, καθολικὴν καὶ ἀποστολικὴν Ἐκκλησίαν· ὁμολογοῦμεν ἓν βάπτισμα εἰς ἄφεσιν ἁμαρτιῶν· προσδοκοῦμεν ἀνάστασιν νεκρῶν, καὶ ζωὴν τοῦ μέλλοντος αἰῶνος. Ἀμήν.

    You'll be amazed at the completely unnecessary changes that have been made to the Bible since the 500's. But how do you account for these changes from the original King James of 1611 to the New King James of 1769?

    The deutero-cannonical books were included in every bible until the reformation. They were even included in the original King James of 1611. Subsequent protestant versions began deleting it.

    Do you think Greek makes the Apostles Creed more understandable?

    That was the last verse of the Nicene Creed, not the Apostles Creed.

    The writings of the early Church - some of which would become the New Testament - were written in Greek before they were dispersed across the first and second century Roman empire where Greek was the common and predominant language.

    The Creed draws a boundary around the essence of Christian theology. The Resurrection is found within that boundary. "My outward man is nothing more than a sinful shell that is doomed for the grave...", is outside the wire.

    But you've still not stated what denomination of Christianity you are?

    His denomination is is unimportant. Is his understanding of the Holy Scriptures correct?
