    TCGreek,

    I can answer a,b, and c.

    A. Nowhere
    B. Nowhere
    C. The Bible does say believers will be in hell.

    Many will come and say Lord, lord... Matthew 7

    also

    Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord... Philippians 2

    Am I forced to define what I mean by "believers"?

    Wow, what a thread. I just caught the last few pages.

    First off. It seems ME is kind of a Baptist purgatory. It has no Scriptural basis. Sounds like a control-through-fear thing to me.

    Second, Paul was physically beaten by a demon? Is that what someone was saying? So, who else has been physically beaten? Was Paul a one off? Was it just during the times of the sign gifts?

    Third, Why did my daughter wake up at 4am? (The early wake up is why I am on the BB looking for trouble)

    Nah, I knew what ya meant. Just adding a little wit (very little) into the conversation.

    Actually though, all in hell will believe Jesus is the Christ, eh? But then it will be too late.

    1. ME is a type of purgatory, but not Baptist by a long shot.

    2. Paul was physically beaten, not by a demon, but by a messenger of satan.

    3. Did you put her to bed too early?

    This has been one of my biggest issues with the ones pushing ME. The average Bible reader, Spirit indwelt believer is unable to see this doctrine by a simple reading of scripture. They constantly say that the majority of "Christiandom" is just unwilling to accept it. It seems to take a "special" revelation that has only been given to the ones who believe it. And they all claim that they "saw" this all on their own with no teaching from outside sources. They also can't explain this teaching without long discourses on how the Greek language works and once again most of "Christiandom" has been using the wrong definitions of Greek words and even traditional sources for Greek definitions are not trustworthy.

    If this isn't dancing, I don't know what is. I think it's that Hip Hop stuff too! :laugh:

    1. I know you mean no derogatory remarks by call ME a Baptist purgatory, but that is exactly what it is.

    2. How can we be made to deny this? This is exactly what it is.

    Catching up to me? How old do I look? Be honest now. And don't be afraid of offending me. I will tell you my age after you tell me honestly how old you think I am. BTW, the larger pic was taken 2 years ago.

    Tell me, I promise not to pout or get mad.

    One of my elders has the same facial resemblance so I'm going to go with mid-60s. If I'm wrong, blame it on that elder. :saint:

    mid 60's. good guess, albeit wrong.

    I will be 48 next month.

    And no, I ain't mad. I think it is funny no one ever guesses my age right.

    You don't want my burdens.

    Blindness, low blood that bottoms out with no warning causing me to pass out, unable to find work because of the blindness (although I can build a working PC), dysfunctional family (now there's the real burden)
