If it's "laughable" then I guess you'll be able to show me dozens of scriptures instructing Christians to pray with, or to dead people and many more examples of saints praying in that manner. I'm not talking about someone who is miraculously lifted into heaven and given a special revelation of things to come, I'm talking about doctrinal instruction or examples of engaging in normal prayer with the departed.
I gave you the extended scenes in the Book of Revelation and you ignored it.
There are no merely “dead”” people as far as Christians who have died in Christ. THere are hundreds of Scriptures in the New Testament about the dead in Christ being present with him. If you are in Christ and they are in Christ, what part of ïn Christ don’t you get?
You don’t really pay attention to what your interlocutors write.
