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.

"I do not so much

free another

when I forgive,

as release


from my own


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.
