Why do people think that heaven or the kingdom of God is in the sky? What did Jesus say? see below


20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.Luke 17:20-21

    God gave the 10 C's to Jews via stone tablets TWICE to make sure THEY didn't miss out. Why 'veil' something so important as eternal salvation? Its an ancient pagan message twisted with Jesus' real one: God is a direct connection & always has been

    Ur not a normal Christian, Eric - I gave this answer a thumbs up for being insightfully spot-on (which I ocassionally find you to be, ha!). I think the same thing about Norine, sometimes - you're both 'just a step' aside me - maddening & funnish.

    This is true... God is 'spirit' so this physical stuff isn't where he exists. God can ONLY exist 'within us' which also encompasses everything 'around us'. Its a fun concept to think about. Jesus 'christos' was within - as is ours. It is our battery.

    We have 'a spirit' w/in us but not THE SPIRIT until "born again" as disciples on Day of Pentecost(Acts2:2)! Lk17:25 says "He must suffer first" (The Cross) & send (Jn14:26)! Now we "WAIT"(Acts1:4) then HE can talk to us(Acts1:2) & Jer31:33-35

    OK buddy what does that mean -- the clouds or the water on a planet? Or did people back then understand to mean the Milky Way the big dipp

    Certainly you do not take this literally as of that time people did not know that clouds were basically water.
