    allegiance = loyalty or devotion to someone, group or the like.
    It is a form of idolatry to pledge allegiance to a flag or image. Just like when Nebuchadnezzar commanded that everyone bow down to the image of gold. Sha’drach, Me’shach, and Abed’nego refused and were thrown into the fiery furnace. They were saved and later rewarded for their faith.
    Daniel 3:13-30…….they were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.

    Refused to recite the Pledge until God’s name is removed. “God” is not a name, it is a title.

    Yes………..Praise Jah!

    What makes you think that saved means going to heaven? Psalms 37:29

  • September 29, 2014 at 5:57pm

    I can’t speak for the Church of the Latter Day Saints but the 144,000 will rule as kings and priest with Christ for 1,000 years. It is the great crowd which no man was able to number out of all nations,tribes,peoples and tongues, who will live on the earth.
    Psalms 37:9-11 and 29………the righteous will possess the earth and live forever on it.
    People seem to think being saved and going to heaven are the same thing.

    But the one who has endured to the end will be saved. And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:13,14

    Matthew 24:21 for then there will be great tribulation such has not occurred since the worlds beginning until now, no,nor will occur again. 22 In fact unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.

    The days will be cut short and God will deliver his people once again. Only Jesus and the 144,000 who rule with Christ as kings and priest will be in heaven. Revelation 5:9,10 It is the great crowd that will remain on earth and live forever on it. God’s Kingdom will rule forever. Daniel 2:44 Psalms 37:29 Revelation 21:3,4

    @Forget…….when a person dies what makes you think they go to heaven?

    You don’t understand the definition of “dead” and how it really works: There is nothing that survives the death of the body. The dead are those in hell. Hell is the grave = the pit, sheol, hades are all the common grave of mankind. It is the resurrection that is the hope for eternal life. (John 5:28,29 )
    It is gehenna which there is no hope of a resurection.
    If it makes you feel good to believe that you and all good dogs go to heaven then fine but it’s not what the bible teaches. Read Ecclesiastes 3:18-22 and 9:5

    “The same Apostle who insists so strongly on the sole mediatorship of Christ, earnestly begs the prayers of his brothers: ”

    The prayers of his brothers who are still alive?
    We are to pray to God in Jesus’ name. Really; you shouldn’t even be praying to Jesus, but to God. That’s what a mediator means, a go between and like I said the Bible is clear.

  • September 27, 2014 at 4:21pm

    There is a difference between praying for and praying to. The dead don’t speak for us and we don’t speak for them. The dead are conscious of nothing at all as Ecclesiastes 9:5 says and also 3: 18-22
    Deuteronomy 18:11,12 ……says anyone who inquires of the dead is detestable to God.

    Dudley………There is only one mediator between God and men (1 Timothy 2:5 )

    Intercede = to attempt to reconcile differences between two people or groups, mediate.

    to mediate and intercede is the same thing.

    They broke that covenant and now there is a new covenant. Luke 22:20

    Jeremiah 31:31 “Look! The days are coming,” declares Jehovah, “when I will make with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah a new covenant. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their forefathers on the day I took hold of their hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, ‘my covenant that they broke, although I was their true master,’* declares Jehovah.”

    the word ‘cleansed’ is more appropriate

  • September 19, 2014 at 7:38pm

    RAMJR……yes, the word ‘cleansed’ in more appropriate

  • September 19, 2014 at 7:31pm

    RAMJR…..”The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, & the earth and everything done in it will be burned up.” 2 Peter 3:8-10″

    Once again it will be the ungodly people not the planet. Sometimes when the scriptures speak of the heavens it is kingdoms or governments or people in high positions of power. The earth sometimes refers to people. example; the whole earth at one time spoke one language.
    2 Peter 3:5 For they deliberately ignore this fact, that long ago there were heavens and an earth standing firmly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and that by those means the world at that time suffered destruction when it was flooded with water. (the time of Noah)
    In verse 7. the heavens and the earth that now exist…… and then in 10. the heavens will pass away with a roar; is speaking of the governments and politcal systems and the elements which make up these systems will be dissolved and the earth or people the works will be exposed. It is symbolic because as we read in Psalms 37: 9-11 & 29 ………….the righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.

    @RAMJR……..”the next time won’t be water…it will be fire.
    The center of the earth is molten lava, the sun, the stars…all heat…all designed for God’s purpose.”

    Psalms 37: 10,11 & 29
    The earth as a planet will not be destroyed, but the ungodly world will. Just like in the days of Noah.

    @adoptedlevite……”Prayer shouldn’t be recited anyway.”

    You are correct as we see in Matthew 6:7 When praying, do not say the same things over and over again as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words.

    It’s a model prayer and not meant to be recited word for word.

    @Mojo……..“An eye for an eye” vs. “Turn the other cheek” are themselves not in disagreement.
    Because it is talking about equal justice not personal revenge.
    Leviticus 24:19-22
    Hebrews 10:30 …………..”Vengeance is mine” Dueteronomy 32:35,36

    also Acts 2:34,35 and Hebrews 1:13 and 1 Corinthians 15:25
