It goes even deeper than that. We are to do all these things that you wrote unconditionaly, but can Jesus do this to His enemies when He judges them?
Ah, now you open up new territory. But this is a good question. In the end, God is not merciful, nor gracious, nor forgiving, He doesn't bless nor do good to his enemies. The Lake of Fire awaits His enemies if one agrees with that eschatology.
Actually, I believe that the prophecies in Rev were already fulfilled AD70.And I believe that the LoF tests (Basanos) the works, not eternally torture the person in it.
Yes, I've read some of your beliefs before and they are very interesting. They are much more consistent than eternal suffering which is a punishment far exceeding the wrong done. I believe the LOF was borrowed completely from the Egyptian Am-Tuat.
Did you know that in Rev 20:10 the verb to basanos can be found. A basanos is a touchstone that tests the quality of metals (works), And I believe that Paul spoke about this in 1Cor3:10-15. I believe that they are the same fire. So what is this fire?
Interesting, Rev20:10 has two words for throw. One for the devil and a different one for false proph and beast. The one you mentioned is for the false pr and beast. Maybe synonyms, maybe more. I'll look at your comparison of 1cor & Rev.
Do you know when revelations was written?
calynbana, Revelation was written in the last decade of the first century.
Rev was written in the early part of AD60
Thanks Cam I was hoping you would answer that. That is incorrect SoM. Revelations was not a prediction of the events that unfolded in 70AD. Revelations was written after 70AD. Nothing in Revelations supports your position,
It is that "Im right and your wrong" attitude that will get you no where caly. the answer to when it was written is found in the book of revelations itself. Who is the harlot? The temple still standing Rev 11, The 7 churches of minor asia?
