          In Judaism, in the light of the Torah, it was believed that blood was the container for the soul, it was that which fed the soul, nourished it and kept it alive. For this reason the consumption of blood is prohibited! The word blood occurs 3 times as often as the "cross" of Christ and 5 times as frequently as "death." And daily or weekly, we commemorate Christ's death with a ceremony based on His blood. Blood is understood as an appeasement to God, first exemplified in the Garden of Eden. The significance and power of the blood shed by Jesus is demonstrated from what 8  perspectives? Anyone know?

    Which account is true? Read [Matthew 27:62-66]. Some have argued that Matthew created this account to provide evidence that the body of Jesus was not stolen. The contrived Gospel of Peter says a guard was posted a day later and the guard witnessed the resurrection. Before A.D. 70 the law forbid the removal of bodies from graves on pain of death. Grave robbing was a perennial problem in the Roman empire. So, did Matthew record and provide an accurate account that Jesus' body was not stolen? Did any of the other apostles [Mark, Luke, John, & Paul] back Matthew up?

    TWISTED SCRIPTURE #1:  [Romans 16:16]. The Churches of Christ [COC] sect take their name from [Matthew 16:18]. Different verses, however point to other likely names. Some of the names are in [1 Cor. 10:32; Galations 1:13; Hebrews 12:23]. Keep in mind, nowhere does God's Word prescribe that a church should have a specific name. TWISTED SCRIPTURE #2:  [Matthew 27:50]. Muslims do not believe Jesus actually died on the cross. Rather they theorize that a substitute died in His place [Susa 4:156-158]. Gospel writers say the real Jesus died on the cross. One of the apostles wrote, "He was buried!" Even [1 Cor. 15:4] attests to Jesus' death.

    Do you believe in "soul ties"? First of all, is soul ties biblical? Soul ties are said to be connections from one person's soul to [or into] into another person's soul. [1 Sam. 18:1 KJV] speaks of a friendship between David & Jonathan. Would this be considered a soul tie? It would be that soul ties is an ungodly relationship between two persons. The Bible speaks of two bodies being joined together such as in marriage.

          Does [John 3:13] mean that no one went to heaven before Jesus ascended after the resurrection ? This verse is somewhat difficult to interpret and is often misunderstood. It is also frequently used by those who want to find contradictions in the Bible. Enoch & Elijah were born in heaven which is why they didn't die on earth ]Gen. 5:24; Hebrews 11:5; 2 Kings 2:11]. So, has anyone other than Jesus, even Enoch & Elijah, went to heaven and then came back to earth with knowledge from heaven to teach to people, even on what heaven is like?

          Some of you may have seen this billboard at one time or another somewhere. Another crazy clan, group, or cult are at it again! Trying to throw their beliefs about the end of the world on us! If they are religious, and I don't believe they are...they would know if they read their Bible...that only God knows when the end is to come and He's not talking! This group, whose picture is below is from Nigeria. Why are they telling us? Don't they think we and the rest of the world already know what they are saying, if we believe on that date? This group left out a lot of Biblical happenings that's to take place before Judgment Day. They were 'left behind.' What's your opinion on all this crazy talk?

          We know that the events surrounding the end times, as described in the Bible, will include a powerful deception [Matthew 24:24]. A theory has it that this deception will include alien beings from another planet. The Bible gives no word about whether aliens exist or not, although I remember reading where He said there wasn't.  In this final battle, there are many agents of hell loosed upon earth. They are traveling in transports. Do not be won over to a false theory of life beyond the heavens, other than the Kingdom of God. Satan is sending these vehicles before you. Remember the case of Barney & Betty Hill on 9-19-61 who were abducted by aliens? Dr. Ben Simon put Betty under hypnosis to find out what really happened. She said one of the aliens said, "There is no God." Another incident was where a big saucer hung over this guy's house. The guy said out loud, "I rebuke you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ-and they disappeared." Aliens are here now, have been for years. They are here, but they are not to help us! I believe the things people think they are seeing are just a warm up for the real deal to come later in Revelation.

          The following may not be true, but I want to get your opinion on it. Maybe its folklore or an urban legend. Using earth's time table, approximately 20 years before Satan is due to inflict worse on humanity before the millennial a baby girl is born. Prophecy has it that this baby girl will grow up with a mark on her arm to signify that she is promised to be Satan's wife and will bear a child...a son. The Vatican knows this and seeks to find and protect the baby till the millennial rings in. Satan has to locate this girl at any cost. For him to marry this girl, he will avoid the final end times or is it, he will avoid the bottomless pit after he's let out after 1,000 years??? Some questions deep is that pit if its bottomless, would that mean Satan could go down into it for all eternity without reaching the bottom, or what? Also, why would God release Satan after the 1,000 year reigh of Jesus to seduce people? Though no specific explanation is given, a logical reason for this turn of events seems evident.

          What is HELL like? Its a place of  weeping and gnashing of teeth, a place of outer darkness, torments, sorrows, everlasting destruction, where men are tormented with fire and brimstone [what about women?], no rest, and, where fire is not quenched. It is ultimately a lake of fire. Hell is a place of  hopelessness and suffering, of hopeless of unsatisfied desires, and of memory. Why do most people give up heaven for hell?  I don't believe its because their family members & friends are going there & they want to be with them. Or, is it really because they don't want to change their lives & live for Christ. They want to live for themselves as it brings happiness. All their reasons for giving up heaven is selfishness which brings sin, and sin only produces death and destruction.

          First of all, what's a vampire? A vampire is a preternatural being, commonly believed to be a reanimated corpse, that is said to suck the blood of people sleeping or not. According to Eastern European folklore, a vampire is a departed soul or demon. Its a corpse that is not really dead although it retains more its human qualities than a hunch or a zombie would. Dracula's real name was Vlad [the Impaler]. He was called Dracula because of the cruel torturing methods he used like letting the victim's blood drip into a 5 gallon bottle till the person died from lack of blood. Can a vampire become a Christian? It may be possible of that person was bitten by a vampire and didn't want that kind of life, he [the victim] could seek God's help in returning his soul. God already has his spirit and knew what happened. There's no telling if God would do this. Jesus does set people free if they are sincere in what they ask of Him, especially this sinful compulsion.
