      Absolutely. The problem though, is that the dead can't hear what's being preached. They're dead. smile

      those who do not believe in Jesus Christ, those who have not heard the word are dead, you must be born again to truly know life.  We must get the word to the dead

        The word is 'legs.'  Spread the word.

        Blasted Xian drivel.  Spread it on the farmers fields where it will do some good.

            Because the superstitious hubs are comic hubs.

            A person can't buy entertainment like Xians post.

            I notice you couldn't be bothered to address my point about Xian drivel.  You just surrendered.

      Y`shua spoke to those dead from Adam to He. This precedes the 1st resurrection, as mentioned in the letter of Revealing 20.6;

            Yes, cowardly Xians liars like yourself are quite the holy socks.  You follow your Father, Satan, well.

            Socks for you.

    Psalms 6:5   For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

    This is the first scripture we must recognize and from this i shall branch of and say that when a person dies they are not able nor eligible to 'upgrade' their lifes experience, death ends the course.

    Hebrews 9:27   And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 

    So lets look at your verse again:
    1 Peter 4:6   For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

    1 Peter 4:5 "Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead".
    Here we have a clue about the word dead. Quick means "alive to/in God" therefore dead "dead to/in God" or "spiritually dead" is a common phrase.

    Since scripture never contradicts itself, the context of dead means spiritually dead, those who have never known God.

    So lets see what we get:
    1 Peter 4:6   For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead to God, that they (those same people) might be judged according to men in the flesh (1 Peter 4:4   Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:), but live according to God in the spirit.

    No it's not possible to preach the gospel to dead people.
    It is however possible to bore live people to death doing so! smile

    The gospel is meant to be preached to the dead onlyso that they may live..

    Those who are alive do not need to hear the Gospel for it is already with them.

    and when the "dead" hear the Gospel they WILL live unless of course they are unable to hear because they belong to death itself.

    They dead cannot preach to to the dead.

    Those who preach the gospel from a book are dead themselves, and therefore preach thier own gospel of death.
