with regards to exposition.

I am sorry I need to clarify my previous post regarding after our physical death... I said the next waking moment is Judgement Day... now... some people have said that it is 'soul sleep' ......

So, do we go to heaven straight after our physical death and hang around heaven till Judgement Day, or do we sleep till Christ calls us into the heavens during the rapture and then hang around heaven until the Day, or is our next conscious moment only during Judgement Day?

Different parts of scripture seem to suggest differently. More research is needed but to me it honestly doesn't matter that much, for we are already promised eternal life and can rest on that and the assurance of the New Kingdom. Praise God that we have promise of the heavenly places and eternal communion with Him!

reply to esther: I'll respect your wishes and won't reply in your blog anymore, and you needn't reply to my post here either.

Scripture (bible) is the Word of God and is absolute truth and infallible, and it can never be wrong.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness - 2 Tim 3:16

To say that the Bible will mean different intepretations to different people, (one to me, another to you) is to say that the Bible is not absolute truth, in other words you say God is not the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and you make God a liar.

If you say you believe in Christ, but do not believe absolutely in all parts of the Bible (OT and NT), then you don't believe in the true Christ.

Nothing but scripture and the whole scripture. Not just the nice parts that you want to hear. You felt hunted down? I'm sorry you felt that but that means you must seek the scriptures relentlessly for the verses I challenge you with.

It is crucial that in the process of building each other up in Christ that we do not become angry at the person we are dealing with:

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath - Eph 4:26

I believe in Christ because I have been convicted that the Bible is the Word of God, which means its the truth.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. - John 8:32

As long as you are grounded in truth, you don't have to hide.

As to:
"balance in knowing the Word and knowing God for ourselves too"

Scripture has already answered you:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. - John 1:1

I read your account of how you were trying to get people to attend service and you were worried of being pushy and so on that you were worried you would lose their friendship. Know that I risk losing your friendship, I risk being unpopular and called a 'snob', but I love Christ and am not ashamed of truth. May the Lord have mercy on all our souls.
