This seems to be a legitimate question. I run into it more and more and I think it is one of many topics that fuels hatred because those that indulge in recreational pharmaceuticals are tired of being looked down at. They want society to accept them as drug abusers, as a norm. And of course this goes on into other pervasive beliefs and activities.
Saw this on the news, and just wanted to know your thoughts on if this is true? I was under the impression that you have to believe in God to go to heaven. Are there any verses that cover this?
"In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences."
Here's the article: Pope tells atheists: You don't have to believe in God to go to heaven
But it states:
Responding to a list of questions...
Luk 3:38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
If Adam was the son of God, who are the sons of God? Who are the daughters of men?
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 3:5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.
What does it mean to be cleansed from all unrighteousness? Does that include the desire to sin? Why instead of acknowledging "cleanse" do some believe the blood of Jesus only FORGIVES all unrighteousness, but we will still sin all of our lives, and Jesus cleanses our present and future sins as well as our past sins, but does nothing for the desire to sin. If we believe that Jesus' blood cleanses and forgives our past, present and future sins instead of making us truly born again with a new nature, and...
Pope Francis has spoken up in defense of homosexual families and called for civil union laws for same-sex couples — a major shift from both his own and the Vatican’s position on the matter. What does the Holy Bible say about gay unions?

Here's to all the people saying it couldn't be done. South Australia is the first major jurisdiction in the world to go 100% solar.
All of South Australia's power comes from solar panels in world first for major jurisdiction
South Australia's renewable energy boom has achieved a global milestone.
- All of SA's power came from solar for one hour on October 11
- The generation of too much solar power can create grid instability
- A new interconnector planned with NSW will help manage the growth of solar power
Just watched this, and it confirms some things the Lord has spoken to me before:
1. Trump is in spiritual danger. I have not published certain things because they insinuate he could be overcome by very powerful witchcraft and an evil spirit take him over. The message in this video states (without going into any detail) that God will not allow that to happen.
2. Trump has been deeply effected in recent weeks, and is a "broken man." This was insinuated by one of the dreams I posted in which he appeared deeply frightened after being "chased to the hospital," i.e. catching Covid-19.
But the following video shares some things I thought should be posted:
- The Lord loves Donald Trump, and in fact raised hm up as His servant in 2016, and...
Franklin Graham has called for a day of prayer and fasting for America on Sunday, October 25, 2020.
From his Facebook Page:
Please, no debating in this thread! If you want to acknowdedge that you're praying for America, that's great!
I urge you to join me for a day of prayer and fasting for our nation on this Sunday, October 25. The upcoming election is the most important in our lifetime—with two diametrically different directions for this country on the ballot. Our only hope is in God, and we need to call out to Him for His help and intervention. Will you join me—and will you share this with others?
