Hello Amy, A very good point indeed. The fact is, most "mental difficulties" that people on this world face are purely sociological in nature and not having to do with a diseased brain or even serious "chemical imballances." Most mental difficulties stem from social thinking misa...

Hi KP,

I know you did not use the word "organism", but to say "Paradise is living" implies (organism), even non-materially. Just trying to help.

Hey KP,

Not really sure what this refers to and don't remember that phrase.

Paradise is a place. No rememberance of being referred to as a living organism. That doesn't make too much sense.

Hi Amy, I agree with you completely. I didn't say that America was practicing a reasonable form of capitalism. I said a reasonable form of capitalism CAN work. Altruism is a moral motivation and morals are based in spirituality. Secular materialists will never get this. It will require a spiritual r...

Capitalism can work for quite a long time....all the way up until a high level of world-wide altruism-based brotherhood of man system can take the next evolutionary turn. Reasonable capitalism is capitalism combined with a reasonable measure of altruism. The UB relates that making a (fair) profit, i...

SS, There is indeed a consequence for refusal or declining to follow or choose God's path. Were you under the impression that "no punishment" for the above was not deliniated in the UB? If you refuse or decline God's way, then you die.....when you die. You cease to exist. Isn't losing one'...

Iris, Perhaps you should quit while you're behind. ? Think I'm picking on you? Well you deserve it! You picked on me first. I've about had it with your condescending attitude and lack of paying attention to what our participants actually say. See you're still not paying attention. I didn't say you w...

Hey that's awesome news Jeff ! I'm very glad that the procedure on your mom was a success and that she is doing so much better. Your prayer may well have played a useful part! And your prayer here for your mom was exactly the type of prayer that the UB states IS appropriate, useful and beneficial al...

Hi Iris,

I'm not going to rattle off a list of quotes from Paper 91 in this thread to go with what I'm saying.

This is a sensitive subject for some and it's best discussed further in Abner's Corner under the thread already going there.

Thanks

Hi Iris, My reply has been edited. But I would stand behind what I had up, which was info straight from the book. Jesus and His doings were special. Many features of what He did was only pertinent to His mission and ministry. But if you desire to discuss the matter further, I'd be happy to join back...

Hey Debbie, No, there's no great change, mentally-intellectually-spiritually, when you first awake on the next world. You pretty much resume your life just where you leave off on this one. Life is a step by step progression and there a few ways to skip any steps. Maybe some of your thinking is a hol...
