Don't you believe the flood happened tec? Was Noah a myth? Just wanting to clarify what you believe and what you don't out of the bible.
I believe it happened... so more than a myth, but not necessarily as literally as it is written.
So everyone gets to live in heaven forever and ever? Me, you, Dazed, Charlie Manson, Andy Warhol, King Louis the XIV, Hitler, Florence Nightengale, Ghenghis Khan, Satan, all the demons, every angel, every Jew or Roman, etc?
Not everyone who ever lived, will get to live again.
Oh I get it that's very subtle and clever TEC. It's like the top mob boss who never gets his hands dirty personally. He'll no doubt use his angels henchmen to carry out the dirty deed and say I killed no one. Is that right?
No, not at all.
(and I don't think that would have been very subtle, lol... mob boss doens't get away with that kind of reasoning either)
There are those who are not granted access into the kingdom (out in the darkness; weeping and gnashing teeth)... because of what is in them; which was manifested in what they DO to others, and so would continue to do to those within the kingdom. (happens when Christ returns)
There are those who at Armageddon come to destroy the camp that God loves (the people in the kingdom); and fire comes down from heaven and destroys them. To protect those they came to destroy. (happens after the thousand years - be that a figurative or literal number) If indeed that 'fire from heaven' is not a natural consequence. Some things in the bible that are attributed to God as punishment are actually prophecy or warning of natural consequence. In any case, the only ones destroyed are those who come to harm and destroy a peaceful people doing them no harm.
I know of few people who have a problem with defending the innocent from those intent on destroying them. Indeed, it is what most people blame God for... for not doing so right now.
Peace to you,
