    Steph: how shall you escape if you neglect so great salvation?Hebrews 2:3/ And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelations 20:15 /--- hast redeemed us to God by thy blood--- Revelations 5:9 / Neither is their salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12
  • Stephende
    The point is that God will choose whom he will choose. If one thinks by accepting Jesus as lord and savior he is saved, he hasn't understood the Bible. We are unprofitable servants! It is our duty to understand the word of truth. No boy scout ribbons or atta boys. God is merciful to some and severe to most because they do not strive as God has demanded. His mysteries are not revealed easily!

    Two men,two women: men or women are not in the original they were added by King James. like Irene posted: two Shall be in one bed;-----. two Shall be grinding----. two Shall be in the field;
  • Irene123
    To N; on Lk.17:34 - Isa.1:18; "Come now, let us reason together ....."; " ..... two shall be in one bed ..... "; if Jesus were referring to this sin, neither one in the bed would have been taken. Don't be naïve; God gave s all common sense.

    To N....back in their day, some people didn't have their own bed. It's not what you think.
