I was just pondering some theological topics and I found two interesting things:

1) Most Protestant sects believe that every dead body just rots and nobody goes to heaven before Jesus comes back. So every time a Protestant tells you someone dead is in Heaven looking down on you they are heretical.

2) When Jesus DOES come back and we have Judgement day, all the previous dead get judged first. (This is actually in the Bible and is very explicit and nowhere contradicted.) So you get to wait in line. At the END of the line. If each judgement takes 5 minutes to review every word you spoke, every sin, every good deed, etc. (Not an unreasonable time for this level of judgement for how you will spend eternity.) The line will take just about 1 million years.

Ah, but PIA, those Pearly Gates are wide enough to accommodate many lines. They've been planning this massive emigration for all eternity so I expect there are hundreds, if not thousands, of heavenly clericals of the winged class getting their ethereal paperwork in order and preparing for the day(and it's coming soon) when all those folks come knocking on heaven's door....knock knock knockin' on heaven's door.....

I expect the line is no longer than a week's wait. It's in Genesis. It only took 6 days to generate the universe. God days. Processing can't take that long!

It says Jesus does the judging, not surrogates. Just saying it's right there in the Bible. If He could do it all at the same time, why would the Bible mention the order of judging? It pretty directly says sequential, not simultaneous.

But waiting a million years might not be a big deal, if you can find some nice folks to wait with. At least they will be those who died at about the same time. Probably not your family unless you all died at the same time like in a bomb blast.

Are these "people of faith"?

Teen’s Escape Leads to Discovery of 13 M...o Beds: Sheriff

I ask because Mummy and Daddy were running one of those private religious schools and my spidey sense is tingling, telling me that this has church-ey written all over it, and half those thirteen kids came from one or more of his daughters.



That almost beatific smile on Mom's face in the police photos tells me she's secretly relieved that the jig is finally up, and now her story can finally be told.

Let's hope she doesn't have a major case of Stepford/Stockholm Syndrome going on.

News story says all his male children had identical "bowl" haircuts too, and all the girls had to wear matching magenta long dresses.

There's some serious bat-chit crazy going on here. Jeffery pegged them as godly folk of some sort. I'll take the imaginary narrative forward a notch and say that if they voted they probably didn't vote for Bernie.
But the world being what it is they'll turn out to be pagan democrats and I'll be hoist by my own petard so to speak....

These are some deeply disturbed individuals here, is it any wonder we tend to peg them as Christian conservatives? In our society these are the folks who are farthest removed from what the rest of us percieve as reality.
