Look, I’ll be frank. I have checked the Bible. Directly. In Hebrew.
Your view is not only out of the mainstream, it has been condemned as heresy.
It’s a free country, so believe what you wish. If you pimp it here, you will be opposed by Christians who know the truth, as you have been in the past.
You should note though, that FreeRepublic is a Christian based site - not a cultic site. When you pimp the cultic heresies here, you are opposing the values of FreeRepublic.
LOL, Godzilla help me, help me! It reminds me of Johnny Sako and the Space Giants. He didn’t ping them, he had a whistle.
I am a Bible-believing Christian. I simply refuse to be Hellenized.
You know the Hebrew then you know that Nephesh isn’t the same as ruah. To be eternal means just that. To not have a starting point.
I went back to Jim's statement on the home page and found nothing about FR being Christian-based or opposed to "heretical" Christian doctrines.
FR is fairly obviously based on Christian values. Doctrine, to my knowledge, not so much.
It is entirely possible for Hindus, Buddhists and atheists to agree with the basic goals of FR. Some branches of Islam, even, though that is more difficult.
