John 25-29 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. Now, I hear the other side of the debate and how the spiritually dead can not hear God unto they are "quickened"/"made alive"/"regenerated", and then, and only then, can they hear. Now, how do you explain that those who are resurrected to the resurrection of damnation are able to hear God when He calls them from their graves? Remember, millions, and probably billions will have been in the ground for centuries, and their physical bodies have probably mouldered back to the dust. So please explain this, that those who are spiritually dead are able to hear God and yet they are resurrected to be cast into the "second death", where, death, hell, satan and his minions will be cast too. I posted this in the "faith a reuquiremnt?" thread, and I guess they missed it?
