Hi!

Mongo here from the Magic Bus.

What do Christadelphians believe is the fate of that unfortunate majority of humans who never heard the "Gospel", heard it inadequately, or were mentally handicapped to the point they could not understand it?

Is it "fate" to die and not be resurrected? Or is that just dying as we all do. Isn't it possible that the unresponsible (those that never heard the gospel) just are not resurrected at all? That they are not judged?

This seems a good a place as any to begin a serious discussion


on conteporary issuess in faith. apart from the magic bus


 


But we're not out of the woods yet. Yes Jesus is the way,


 


the truth and the light, but I do not see him having tea with contemporary


 


christians. Where's the Love? Taking care of the sick as opposed to


 


supporting the coporations. And now with justice handed over to


 


the coporate oligarchy we are headed towards a repeat of the dark


 


ages, already we allowed two stolen elections for the price of oil in


 


the name of god and theocracy. "Where does the greed stop?" Our system


 


is broken by name calling, petty bickering and outright lies designed


 


to frighten the elderly and instill bigotry and hate. In this country where


 


christians are expelled from church for not being republican we are a disgrace


 


to all civilized nations  and speaking of death panals (actually end of life


 


counseling endorsed by Bush) we are the only nation that allows


 


corporations to make a profit on death and illness by denying coverage.


 


It is a fact that if the cost of health care was removed from our imports


 


we would have a fighting chance in the world economy. It is time to end


 


this war on the middle class and take Jesus back from the pharaseas.


 


imho

"I do not so much


free another


when I forgive,


as release


myself


from my own


poison."


K. B. Brown



 



Perhaps it is true that power corrupts and absolute power


corrupts absolutely or that the love of money is indeed


the root of all evil. Where religion fails miserably what


notions step forth to fill the vacuum? In Roman times


slaves where encouraged to pursue an education, all


but for the humanities which were forbidden because


this would have taught them to think for themselves. And


how is our modern education any different today, drones


are cranked out by the thousands with highly specialized


skills that will assure them fast placement into the field


of their choosing. But what happens after ten or fifteen


years and it becomes time to climb the corporate ladder?


They soon find they are ill equiped to think for themselves


let alone do the work of upper management, so they are


by no real fault of their own denied the tools of higher


communication necessary to serve the larger corporation


and remain a slave until the new blood is rushed in to


denie them the possibility of a pension.


There was a time when the american dream could be


had by the middle class, but no more. Gone are the


days when a man could get a job and fulfill the


obligations to his family or hope to send his kids,


on one income, through college. If, as you say man


is inherently evil, then I think perhaps you are not


seeing the big picture here upon the brink of near


total economic collapse, our once great nation all for


greed and profit, where if not for this gross imbalance


of power that is allowed the indecency to use death


for profit as health care, we might acutally have a


fighting chance in the world economy. But our


democracy is bent. And we are its products


defective narcissistic self absorbed and spoiled


by false entitlements. The native americans have


a saying, that what ever we take from this planet


must be returned and what of the gross national


product based on a standard of living that to


few of us can afford? Perhaps there are principles


that are self evident in the face of so much


rampant insanity, that Evil is not a force to resist


but merely an opaqueness that, just as with a


dirty mirror, the light cann't shine through.
