    It's not the way of our Lord to use names for people such as - crazy, idiot, stupid, etc'; all that does is harden a heart and cause the accused one to rail back and that also is offensive to God's will for us. Ye shall love the Lord your God with ALL your heart ... soul and mind; and ye shall love thy neighbor as thyself; "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do".

    Pets receive Salvation? You must be crazy!!
    Romans 8:28 Only those souls who God knew before Creation are destined for Salvation!
    A soul must believe to be saved. A soul will not believe unless God births that soul from above [Reborn] to believe. And the only souls that God rebirths to believe are the souls which He knew before Creation.
  • A disciple
    The WHOLE CREATION groans and toils, waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. The whole world is corrupted because of man; and all wait to see the completed salvation of the world, in the coming of Jesus Christ, and His eternal kingdom. Eccl. 3:21 Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward to the earth? God's plan is to restore all things.
  • Irene123
    To Karl on Luke 3 - Gen. 2:7; God breathed into man and he became a living soul. He didn't do this with the animals. They have no soul. They don't go to heaven or hell. God gave us animals for food AND for comfort. When we kill an animal on the road - we are not murderers, it's an accident. ONLY if we hurt a SOUL are we accountable.
