Baptists/The truth about death.


Hello Mr. Barns,

I hope you and your family are safe.  After reading your profile, I find it more in harmony with Biblical teachings, rather than the Baptism theology of God being an eternal tormentor.  For that, I applaud you for taking a stand for your Biblical beliefs.  You're closer to 'the truth' than you can imagine.  Let scripture interpret scripture:

The truth about death

* The dead are not conscious. (Psalm 146:4) You need not fear pain or torment after you die, for the Bible compares death to sleep.—Psalm 13:3; John 11:11-14.

* The dead cannot harm us. Even formerly violent enemies are “impotent in death.” (Proverbs 21:16) The Bible says that “their hate and their jealousy have already perished.”—Ecclesiastes 9:6.

* Death is not necessarily the permanent end of our existence. By means of a resurrection, God will bring back to life people who have died.—John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15.

* God promises a time when “death will be no more.” (Revelation 21:4) Concerning that day, the Bible says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it,” completely free from any fear of dying.—Psalm 37:29.

If you desire to learn the Deeper things of God, then I think you will find the following articles very informative about death and hell.  Hell is not what religion teaches.

These articles are tremendously accurate! I often wondered if Adam and Eve were taken to heaven then the death of Christ was meaningless since they didn't need Christ to go to heaven. But if the “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it,”—Psalm 37:29 then the unrighteous would not live. Then the answer would be that the dead are dead.

These articles validate that the God of the Bible is a God of love not hatred. John 3:16. You are doing a fine work. Thank you for these wonderful articles that cleared up several misconceptions that I had.

Be safe

I can answer questions about the Bible of all translations and the various theologies of it's passages. Experience in how the Baptist Religion was founded in it's infancy and how it has splintered into many sects of different theology. If you enjoy the deeper things of God. I would love the opportunity to share the meanings of the true scripture as the meanings are hidden from many. Teaching an eternal burning hell is to reject "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures"-1 Cor 15:3. The Bible Literally teaches us that "death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them"-Revelation 20:13. This is truly a marvel and the gospel of Jesus Christ that hell gives up the dead to be Judged. Please note the last half of the scripture "they were judged every man according to their works." We would be in error to say works don't matter, if we are literally judged by them.


Intensive study of Biblical Christianity and where it got it's start. I've learned that being a KJV only can lead a person to being narrow minded and somewhat short sided to Christ's full message of Salvation. Sometimes comparing Bible translations actually leads to a far deeper understanding of God's Word. Punishment in hell after death is double jeopardy and unjust.

Once Saved Always Saved is not a Biblical doctrine. Paul told Christians who had already accepted Christ to: “Keep working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”— Philippians 2:12.

Baptist Sunday School and intense study of different translations. Studying several different translations gave me more understanding than reading KJV Only. Without grace who of us could get saved and stand before the throne of God? I believe that the antichrist has entered the church and leading many astray by the works of the flesh and an apostasy is now occurring among believers who through bad works are sinning their grace away. "Can it be that I have become your enemy for telling you the truth?"- Galatians 4:16
