It&#39;s like a conversation I had with my mother 6 months before she died. She never read her Bible. I just asked her one day, &quot;aren&#39;t you even curious about your Savior you are going to be living with forever? And the wonders of heaven where you&#39;ll be living?

Next day I see her at the table reading her Bible. Read it for over an hour. Became a part of her routine. She asked questions about when she&#39;d see her parents and others who had died. If tell her about what Jesus likes. They need our participation to get them started. I read Psalms to her.

I&#39;ll see her again. :)

Bible reading &amp; Church attendance are not criteria for entrance to Heaven: only your faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross as your sin bearer &amp; the Recipient of the penalty you (and I) rightly deserved. And through your acknowledgement of this &amp; subsequent repentance of sins, the Spirit of God enters your life to give you a re-birth experience &amp; a holiness &amp; acceptability to God.

In my understanding, after such an experience &amp; encounter with a Holy, Merciful God, it behoves us to want to know Him and love Him more. And the chief ways of doing so is by attending to His Word, fellowship with the saints, &amp; enjoying prayerful intimacy with Him.

However, there are some who believe that &quot;now I&#39;m saved, I can do what I like&quot;. However, salvation is proven by a heart &amp; mind change &amp; remembering that &quot;your body is (now) the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God&#39;s.&quot; (1 Cor 6:19,20). Every blessing Don, as you consider this matter &amp; the great cost that was made to redeem your spirit back to a loving God.

John 3:16

Mathew 7:22-27

Mathew 25:31-46

However there is blessing in reading HIS Word

2 Timothy 2:15

Psalm 1:1-3

Psalm 119:105

I&#39;m from the USA, here we can freely buy, read, distribute &amp; discuss the Bible, however In other countries I&#39;ve heard testified people suffer death, imprisonment &amp; horrible challenges just to take part in any of those. Some were trying to get 1 book into hands of churches overseas. I guess my question to you, is: to have the privilege to read or not read a collection of books written for benefit, life, guidance, wisdom (that others risk death to read) why not?

do, you have to read the bible and attend church services to go to heaven

Existence without fear is a pure way to describe &quot;heaven&quot;which only God can provide.

Louise Wilken's comment on 2020-07-18 17:04:03:

But unfortunately to many see the good shepherd as a magic wand... Instead of having faith trust and believe in His word which is the truth they want everything to happen immediately. God&#39;s time is always the best time. Louise

Psalm 23:1 - a proclaimation of King David that the Lord is His Shephered who take good care of him and his needs. Therefore nothing in his need that the Lord will not provide.

So then, if the Lord is also our Shephered, we will lack nothing. We are to rest assured that our Shephered will also keep His sheeps that no one can snatch us out from Him. What more shall we ask for when in Christ Jesus we will have the assurance of His promised and He who promised is faithful and true.

William Kirkland, I certainly hope there are dogs in heaven. Your question roused my curiosity and I Googled &quot;verses about whether pets go to heaven&quot; after remembering about the verse about God&#39;s care of a sparrow.

I found 1Corinthians 15:39 and Romans 8:19 on to be wonderful reads. So yes, they go to heaven.

Additionally, I have wondered whether when we die and leave here do we keep our earthly memories (good and bad) but I feel according to Isaiah 65:16-17 &quot;...: because the former troubles are forgotten and because they are hid from mine eyes.&quot; &quot;For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, or come into mind.&quot;

I also believe that I have read a scripture where we remember &quot;our own&quot; so we will see our own family and pets in heaven but no sorrow will be associated with them just joy.

I hope this helps you. It did me.

Keep reading the Word, it is full of treasures and guidance. I&#39;ve read it through 3 times, now on my fourth and each time the treasures and guidance increase. Every word means something.

Also, people&#39;s comments and Matthew Henry&#39;s commentaries inspire me.


Portia's comment on 2020-06-20 23:47:57:

For someone who is curious about the bible, just maybe god is drawing you. for no one comes to the jesus except he is drawn of the father. so, this is curiosity that will not kill the cat, so to speak. therefore, i suggest that you start in the book of matthew and read a chapter daily, meditate or think about what has been said/written. starting in matthew and following on thru the books after, you will learn more about jesus, who he is and what he has done, ect. i will make prayers for you because i have hope for you.

Psalms 23:1 comment

1;The Lord is my shepherd; there are two types of shepherds, (hireling and a good shepherd)

A hireling is the shepherd that takes care of the sheep only for money yet the good shepherd does it whole hearted, Jesus Christ is the good shepherd who takes good care of the sheep (believers in Christ both Jews and Gentiles) A hireling are pastors that are preaching for money and without money they don&#39;t preach.


Chris's comment on 2020-05-25 20:37:32:

SC, I actually see your lack of understanding of the Scriptures which of course translates to heretical messages. You use the Scriptures, I can see that, but then you pervert it through ignorance. E.g. the Trinity. You assume that the Godhead is Male, as in human male. God is Spirit, without gender, but is referred to as "He, Him", because that is how He has revealed Himself to man. And the same with the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Word of God (without gender), made Man (when you say that "no Mother was anywhere to be found"). Have you forgotten about Mary (Joseph's wife) who was implanted with Holy Seed so as to bring forth a male child, Jesus. This was the only way for God to enter the world.

That "women have been treated as dirt in some countries", is not because of the Godhead being referred in the masculine gender, but because of sin in some males who want to suppress & subjugate women instead of giving them full equality that God had ordained for each of us.

Jesus, the Everlasting Father, is taken from Isa 9:6, where the future special Child is shown to have full equality in the Godhead. And this is not to imply that somehow Jesus has taken over the role of God the Father, but that this Child was the Father's Word made human. In other words, God, the Everlasting Father, came down to man to give His Life for us & He did this in the sending of His Word, Jesus.

Gen 1:26 doesn't speak at all about genders. It is the Godhead at work in Creation (which includes the Word, Col 1:16) & His Spirit (Gen 1:2) - none are of human gender.

SC has been rebuked in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

She or he is reprobate.


Mishael's comment on 2020-05-25 18:03:03:

I rebuke you, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.


SC's comment on 2020-05-25 17:37:10:

This is Truth and spiritual light.

Jesus Christ is the only living sacrifice acceptable to God The Father, to save mankind from their sins. God

The all male Trinity is a lie. It is a &quot;false truth&quot;, and a doctrine of Satan that have been taught in churches for thousands of years as truth.

Howerer, All males cannot produce children, spiritually ir physically. If the world is to look up to God in heaven to see the perfect order of a family, and they are lied to that God is just The Father with a male Son, and a male Holy Spirit, and the all male union produces children, with no Mother anywhere to be found, then that&#39;s a major reason why woman have been treated like dirt in some countries, and there is so much disorder in the world today.

Jesus Christ is the son of God The Father, and if Jesus is also our everlasting Father, as the lying scribes say; that means that you and me, The True children of God have the same Father, and that makes Jesus my brother.

My brother can never be my father.

This is truth, not heresy!

The lying pen of the scribes changed some of the scriptures into lies?

&quot;How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made He it, the lying pen of the scribes is in vain.&quot; Jeremiah 8:8

&quot;In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.&quot; Genesis 1:1

&quot;In the beginning was The Word{Jesus Christ}, and The Word{Jesus Christ} was with God The Father, and The Word was God.&quot; John 1:1

&quot;26 And God{God The Father and The Word,Jesus Christ, God The Wife, God The Mother} said, now, WE make man in our image, after our likeness, and WE give them dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.&quot;

27 &quot;So God created man in Their own image, in the image of God, they created man, male and female God created them.&quot; Genesis 1:26,27

Mishael TO SC on Heresy - in Reply on Psalms 23:1

thanks Mishael you are correct SC is a heretic who rejects plain bible teaching to create their own heresy.

Jesus is not mother god.

Maybe you start off with this theory of Divine (human) relationships &amp; then conform Scripture to fit into your belief. This is dangerous practice that leads only to corrupting your mind with lies &amp; deceptions, taking away from the intent by God&#39;s Spirit to give us clear understanding of Who God is &amp; His great Design for the redemption of mankind. To suggest that God is multi-gender, with mixed parent-hood, is beyond the sensible understanding of the Word. One could then believe &amp; teach that Jesus was actually a hen, not a Man, since Mt 23:37 alludes to this!! Hence, my suggestion is to either understand the Scriptures as given or provide correct Scriptures to prove your beliefs. And I doubt that you would find anything in God&#39;s Word.

SC, thank you for your comment. You quote Gen 1:26, 27. What has this Scripture got to do with &quot;The perfect order of the spiritual family&quot;? In the normal reading of that passage, it speaks of the Creator God wanting to create man &amp; woman in His Image. How do we get a &#39;family relationship&#39; from these verses?

Galatians 4:27 which is a direct quotation from Isaiah 54:1. What is the prophecy here, which Paul is speaking about? He speaks of the two sons of Abraham, Ishmael (from Hagar the bondwoman) &amp; Isaac (from Sarai (Sarah), the freewoman of Promise). The reference here was against the Judaizers amongst them who wanted to bring Christians back under the Law to be saved (represented by Hagar), whereas Christians were freed from the Law which could only bring death, represented by Sarah &amp; Isaac, the child of Promise.

So &quot;Rejoice thou barren (Sarah), cry with joy, for the desolate (Sarah) has many more children that she (Hagar) who was the slave-wife (to Abraham)&quot;. This prophecy is clearly of the children of Promise, i.e. of those who are saved by grace through Jesus Christ &amp; not by the works of the Law (or even fused with Grace). Here is a clear portion from Paul to encourage the Galatians believers about their new standing before God through His Son. It has nothing to do with &quot;More proof God is Husband and Wife, Father and Mother, MelquisedecLisbet&quot;. How do you develop such a connection when the Scripture is clear as to the prophecy &amp; its implications?
