    And that only shows even more why 144,000 simply cannot be read literally - or any of Revelation for that matter.

    They are supposed to be Jews virginal and male, clearly most if not all of the "annointed" dubs do not fit that description if it is to be taken literally like their number of 144 000.

    Amen, brother Ozziepost! Amen!

    I hate math problems but don't believe in the 144,000 at all. I think every good person is part of that, not just some special MEN that think they are touched

    Is it so wrong to believe that if a person is good and has faith, that they will go to Heaven?? Personally, I believe that if a person truly believes and loves God, then God will forgive his/her sins and accept him/her in Heaven, what's wrong with that?? The God I believe in loves all of His children equally and would never exclude any of them from Heaven if they truly believed in Him and loved Him.

    I think the whole "144 000" bit is a crock. But that's just my opinion.

    "everyone'? No way!

    But there is only one christian hope. Can you find any other hope spoken of by Jesus?

  • DaveNwisconsin

    Yes I do. Why do some get to go but not others? I plan to spend eternity there singing in Gods Choir. You can't tell me that out of the 144000 that they can all carry a tune?

    I don't really think everyone.........not the bad people like Tonya Harding or killers or something.

    Ah, how I love numerology. You can use it to "prove" anything and everything that you want. We should start coming up with numerological explanations for why the bible proves that 2006 is the year that all Witnesses should stop following the faithless and indiscreet slavedriver. Nice work Auld.

    and Dave, I laughed really hard at the mention of Tanya Harding, I haven't thought of her in years.
