I just spent the last 2.5 hours writing a dissertation in response to your replies, but God must not have liked it because when I went to preview it before posting, I had to re-sign in and I ended up losing it...so...here's the quick version...Ambassador Pony
- I don't know, what do you think? In my opinion, no, because that would be a form of torture in and of itself ....Jetson
- I didn't say it, you did; and I never stated that it was a fact...Hatter23
- Jewish THEOLOGY (why is that so hard for you) is relevant because of your second question "Did they generally observe Judeism as instructed to by their parents? " Yes, they did, making Jewish theology relevant ... Actually, I only recently learned about the term "Age of accountability" about a year ago, during of all things a Christian Bible Study (
Imagine that!) ... Yes, I do view MY interpretation as the "One True" interpretation for ME! You accept it? Fine. You don't? Fine. I don't care ... Finally, one second before or one second after? now that's irrelevant; refer back to your original question....
and please don't presume to know me from other Christians, you don't!Velkyn
- same goes for you, don't presume to know me from other Christians, you don't either...I do NOT ignore the bible's inconvenient parts. I am currently studying the most violent book in the Old Testament. Do I like it? No! Do I ignore it? No. But I will accept it and learn from it! ... and you are right in that the Bible states that no one comes to Father but through the Son; but I'm not the one who doesn't like that or who ignores it - that would be you ... and unlike you, I don't presume to know everything therefore the only thing I know about the virgins is that it is in Revelation ... Yes, I could show you where the Bible, OT and NT (as well as religions and cultures) indirectly refers to an "age of accountability" but the question is why should I? It's the Bible - you don't accept it or give it any credibility...I answered the question according to my theology and to my satisfaction, so why should i waste my hard work on you? ... sorry I just don't see the point, if you're not going to believe it anyway. Maybe I will, Maybe I won't...I just don't know.
I do know that it's not going to happen tonight/day...cause I'm going to bed! Good Night!
