"If you have read the post here by Meatwood_ Flack, you can see the statement that I am not to insinuate that any religion offers a way around death."

I never stated that you are "not to," I made a request that you "please don't," but if feeling persecuted is your pleasure, knock yourself out. You overlook the most important line of my post: Whatever gets you through the night.

"In the scriptures that he Jews use, Job writes, "If a man die, shall he live again?" And David said that he would dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

Since we're interpreting scripture as literal, Job's life was ruined and members of his family were killed so Jehovah could win a bet with Lucifer. And how does David get to dwell in the house of the Lord forever, when he had a soldier sent to the front lines of a battle to be killed so that he could sleep with the man's wife? Or were those portions not meant to be taken literally?

"And in the book called Genesis, it writes that when a man dies, his body returns to the dust in the ground and his spirit returns to God."

Genesis also says "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth, and the Earth was without form and void." If the Earth was without form and void, then there was no Earth. And our bodies, indeed, return to dust. But the existence of the body can be observed. The existence of a spirit is speculation and hope.

"Now it has been revealed to me that there is another life in The World Tomorrow, a world of peace and joy."

The teachings of the Koran were revealed to Mohammed. The teachings of the Book of Mormom were revealed to John Smith. The truths of Scientology were revealed to L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer. The Ten Commandments were revealed to Moses. Why does God always seem to reveal himself to one person? Why doesn't he just cut out the middleman and reveal himself to everyone, say at halftime of the Super Bowl?

"And he that overcomes shall inherit all things and I will be his God, and he shall be my son."

Are women excluded from this relationship?
Also, the post you quoted me from and responded to here is from a different thread. Keeping it there would have been fine. Bringing it to this thread is a form of hijacking.
Have a wonderful evening and may peace and grace truly be yours.
