Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Bible buffet...

"Andy Duchemin said...Ray, even your bible says that the dead are not conscious. Ecclesiastes 9:5 says...'For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.' Are you saying the Bible has it wrong and you have it right? That sounds like heresy to me Ray."

The Bible is like a fiddle. You can play any tune you want with it, if you want to. For example, Psalm 14:1 clearly says that there's no God. Such "buffet" reading of the Bible is called "twisting the scriptures" to your "own destruction."

Try reading Ecclesiastes 9:5 in the context of the whole book--especially the conclusion of Solomon's philosophy about the futility of life, because of the reality of death.

Here is his conclusion: "For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil" (Ecclesiastes 12:14).

Please repent (confess your sins to God and turn from them) and trust the Savior for your eternal salvation. That will give you the proof you are not looking for.
