    Bob: To answer your last question first there needs to be a clarification; Stevenson was answering a question about marriage in heaven. I'm not sure with the posing of your question if you got that. Anyway, his stance IS Biblical:

    "You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures, or the power of God. "For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. (Matthew 22:29-30)"

    As for the first part of your statement: People who have never experienced "God" working in their lives cannot understand those who have been touch by divine intervention. The real trick in modern and ancient society is figuring out who is truly touched vs those trying to make a buck. I won't touch modern times, but in the olden days, for long after Jesus was crucified, if you were a follower of his you could die in horrible ways for that belief. No one got rich nor powerful following Jesus (at least in the beginning, but that brings us to modern days).

    Right on, Darrell. As history is written by man, so is the bible. It is said that history is written by the victor's, and it's inconsistency in truth has been proven time and time again. So then was the bible written in turbulent times by men who did not understand or comprehend what they were seeing or feeling. They documented what they THOUGHT was the truth as best they could, but could only pen what they could understand. So, much of what was written should, at best, be considered suspect. So should the speculation, by men of modern times, who claim to have the answers, into the meaning of what was written. Each religion, in most cases, interprets the bible differently, assuming they follow it, or believe in it at all. No, I think I'll take my chances and live my life my way, treating all as I would wish to be treated, and dealing with those who choose to treat me any other way, since I don't have time for wishes to come true. By the way, would someone please ask this guy exactly where in the bible it states that married people will be united but not married? Guess I missed that one while taking "Bible Study 101". It takes all kinds.

    Interesting to read what people think will or will not happen. Since the written word can be interpreted in many ways, it amazes me when someone claims they know the correct one.

    Quote - "How do dinosaurs fit into our history? The Bible doesn't say they did or didn't exist, but God chose the animals he wanted to keep alive on the ark. Dinosaurs weren't one of them."
