Robert speaks very highly of you. He says that you are a chaplan in the Forces who is very intelligent.My uncle was a chaplan in the NZ Airforce.
Also Robert sent me some of your writings which clearly signify that you don’t totally believe the Bible.Joe I think you might find it interesting to look at the work done by Walter Vieth which can be viewed on Utube. I mention his name to you because of your view of Noah and the flood.
I thought you might also find it rather interesting to know that many brilliant men,mathematicians, mostly Jews who were atheists,have now become converted to believing in God because of the codes they have discovered in the bible.
God is smart isn’t He? He knew that guys like you and I might be tempted to not believe that He effectively wrote the Bible using the hand of man.The codes, Joe, prove that ALL the Bible is His work.
There is a great book called THE TRUTH BEHIND THE BIBLE CODES written by Dr Jeffrey Satinover. He wrote the book because it came to his attention that hard core atheist mathematicians were changing their mind and believing in God.
However believing in God in itself is not sufficient to save our souls from perishing in hell, is it Joe?
Somewhere in the New Testament Jesus Christ says: Enter ye in at the strait gate,for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, And many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
In other words God is saying quite clearly that many will perish in hell and few will pay the price to get life everlasting.
Which brings us to an interesting thought. Why did God bother to make so many people when He knew full well that many would perish in hell and few would inherit eternal life?
This is how I see it Joe. God is a winner. He is the winner of winners. He cannot fail. Failure for Him is an impossibility. Therefore the question is,is the perishing of the many in hell failure? Yes it is failure for those who go to hell but for the few who win it is such a great win in the eyes of God that it cancels out the failure of those who choose to not pay the price and end up in hell.
If we want to win we have no choice but to pay the price of doing what God says to do such as keep his commandments, love Him, believe that Jesus Christ is God who became a man, be grateful for our salvation, love people,and yes warn people of their impending doom if they neglect so great a salvation.
As a chaplan you have a duty to teach but also to be taught.
Many want to learn but few want to be taught.
There probably is more chance of you winning the lottery every day for the rest of your life than the codes in the Bible being there by chance.If you continue to say that the Bible is not 100% the word of God you are messing with God to the extent you are on the highway to hell. How can you be knocking on God’s door when you say that the Bible you are holding in your hand is not the inspired word of God?
My suggestion would be to study the views of those Bible scholars who say like I say that the Bible is 100% accurate and is indeed the word of God.
As we know that the wearing of the garb of a priest or a chaplan is not an automatic exemption from hell, we try harder to make sure is does not become our final destination.
Joe if you want to be in the company of the few instead of the many who are heading for hell, you need to re-study this subject of the Bible, but can you be told and if told then also taught.
Another good read is New Age Bible Versions written by Gail Riplinger and she can also be seen on Utube.
And finally Joe let me say this.Let us not be like those that are going to hell but have within themselves a feeling that everything is ok and that they will be fine and there is nothing to worry about with God’s punishments.
You obviously have a feeling that everything is ok for you with regard to your final destination but Joe your warm feelings are kidding you.The Lord says that if we are luke warm he will spue us out of his mouth because he would rather that we were hot or cold.
I have said my bit.
God bless you.
