|Saints are not omnipresent. They can't hear you praying in United States as another prays to them in Africa. So someone’s prayers is going to be missed at best. At worst, since there is not any scriptural evidence that people in heaven can hear anything we say, everyone who prays to saints are missing out.
There is not one scriptural basis for praying to anyone else than God Himself. When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray did He teach them to pray to Mary, Saint Joseph, to Himself? No! He said pray this way, "Our Father..." If you feel you, the pope or any church doctrine has the authority to change that then your seriously mistaken. We are to pray to God in the name of Jesus.

|Jesus said there is only one way to the Father.
John 10:7 So Jesus said to them again, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
John 10:9 "I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
And Jesus also says that anyone trying to enter another way is a thief.
John 10:1-2 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.  "But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep.
Praying to saints is wrong! Even if they could hear you (which they can't) they are powerless to do anything. John 15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.
Lastly if they have been depending on other saints for their salvation they may not be where you think them to be.

None of these say we are going to be 27 in heaven. Yes Jesus was 30 when he started his ministry that was defined by Levitical Law. That is 3 years older than 27 so what.
We have no idea of the age of the angel in the tomb.
I have no idea why you referenced Mark 12:25 or Rom. 1:20 to prove we were going to be 27 in heaven
Let me save you some work there is no Bible passage that says or infers what our age will be in heaven. We will be given imperishable bodies that may look young or may look old, no one this side of heaven knows the answer. But this I can tell you what ever the age of your body you will not care because it will take you into eternity. It will never get sick, feel heat or cold, sadness or regret. You will never cry or be afraid or alone again.

All the examples you state are before the Holy Spirit was given, before Christ died on the cross, and before we became sons and daughters.
I have heard a good story on this subject and let me try it here. Let’s suppose you’re a rich and famous business man. You surround yourself with staff, you have an appointment secretary, a general secretary and a private secretary. Each reports forward to the next. You also have a son that wants to borrow the car. Does that son first go to the appointment secretary, who goes to general secretary who goes to your private secretary who comes in and asks you if your son can borrow the car? No! Of course not. Your son is your son! He walks by all others and goes directly to his father and says father may I use the car.
The Bible tells us we are children of God adopted into the family, we have no need for anyone to go ask for us. Jesus and His blood gave us the right to walk boldly into the presence of Almighty God and say Abba Father!
Do not let anyone steal your position in the kingdom!
|5046||No speaking in tongues, no Holy Spirit?||Acts 2:4||EdB||10334|
A goodly number of theologians feel the “prefect” is when the cannon for the New Testament came to close and the New Testament was completed. Another large group feel the “perfect” is Jesus’ second coming. To which do you subscribe?
Personally I’m of the later group and believe the gifts are very much for today.
|5047||Tell me who unties them?||Matt 18:18||EdB||10311|
I'll imagine you also believe if one can send a thousand to flight 2 can send 10 thousand to flight. If you do read Deut. 32:30 in context and you will find this age old belief of the spiritual warfare people is really God telling Israel what is going to happen to them if they continue on the path they are pursuing.
Stop worrying about Satan and rest in Christ Jesus. Jesus has fought the battle He has won the war, Satan is defeated. Satan is not going anywhere near where Jesus is and Jesus lives in the believer. Get past it!
|5048||Tell me who unties them?||Matt 18:18||EdB||10310|
|My friend I have heard people binding demons for years, I would imagine there would have to be zillions of bindings by now. Yet we still have problems.
First of all I don't have problems with demons since I place and keep myself under the blood of Jesus and there is no demon that will cross the bloodline.
Secondly I don't talk to demons I talk to my Creator, the Great I AM, why would I want to talk to a defeated foe, when God tells me to praise and worship Him in all things?
Thirdly 90 percent of most people’s problems are flesh, and they find it easier to blame a demon on something they refuse the crucify the flesh over.
Fourthly Satan whether we like it or not is an angelic being (a bad one I’ll attest) and Jude 9 and 10 and 2 Peter 2:10-14 tell us not to talk about these beings in reviling accusations, but rather let the word of God be our shield and buckler.
Fifthly if you want to keep binding Satan then read 2 Peter 2:12 and see what your result will be.
James 4:7 tells us exactly how to handle Satan. It may not be as exciting as you wish it to be, but this is exactly how to do it.
Submit to God, few people totally submit oh they may go along with God until they get what they want but very few totally submit.
Resist Satan, I contend if your busy submitting to God you are resisting Satan and the word says Satan will flee. Do you see anywhere it saying tell Satan you bind him?
Let us not be presumptuous, self-willed; speaking evil of angelic beings, but rather let’s say the Lord rebuke you.
|5049||Tell me who unties them?||Matt 18:18||EdB||10306|
I was not talking about exorcism, the freeing of someone of a demon. I was talking about the common practice of spiritual warfare of binding Satan. We can't bind Satan from doing anything. Now I can plead the blood of Jesus and I know Satan will not cross the blood line. But to say I bind you from this situation is nothing more to me than telling Satan where he can hurt you most. I would ask Jesus to place this situation under his blood, to loose angels to guard against the adversary, but trying to binding Satan is like calling to the wind, since we have never been given the authority to bind him.
If you feel we can bind Satan how does he then get loose?

That's fair enough and until we hear God's decision we must assume them to be just men and all this infallibility talk should cease.
We are in agreement brother!

|Living I a free country and never under the hand of tyranny we have no concept of the power Rome wielded. To resist Rome in anyway was hopeless. What could they do other than being killed themselves immediately? Also many times Rome would not kill the perpetrator but rather an innocent child nearby letting the person that started the rebellion live with the fact that their action directly contributed to an innocent being killed.
To get an idea of the hopelessness of the situation watch a film of the Holocaust where the Jews marched an almost willingly into the gas chambers or down into the pits to be shot. My first thought was I would run, fight, go kicking and screaming. But after listening to their testimonies and such, I realized all of that would serve no purpose and would probably make things worst if that were possible.
I don't think Mary or any of the others stood by because of some noble act, but rather they knew any form of resistance was useless.
Remember what was taking place was between God and the Son and that man was nothing more than a supporting characters in this drama of Salvation.
Read Genesis chapter 22 with these points in mind. Abraham being of the oriental mindset viewed his son Isaac dead when God told him to sacrifice him. Note also Isaac was no young boy but most likely in his late teens or early 20’s. He allowed his father to bind him, Abraham was a man in his 100’s by then. Note also Isaac carried the wood for sacrifice, Jesus carried the cross, Abraham said God would provide a lamb, what was provided was a Ram. The Lamb came thousands of years later in the form of Jesus. Notice also everyone except Abraham and Isaac stayed behind. This was a drama played out between father and son.

|Nolan if you define applicable as means of correction or as a deterrent then no I don't think excommunication is applicable. If you define applicable as being rooted in Biblical principal and still in effect as a way to preserve the purity of the church today then yes excommunication is applicable.
I think if someone is guilty of such an act that justifies excommunication that person should be put out of the church, if for no other reason than preserve the purity of the church. However I do not see excommunication as any kind of deterrent to prevent hyenas behavior.
I have seen Pastors caught in adultery, be removed from the church and move two blocks, start a new church and have better than half there old congregation follow them. If you ask the people why they will tell you he is a fantastic pastor. They could care he is up to his neck in sin. He entertains them and that is all they care about. I have also seen people cause so much trouble in a church that the pastor has had to biblically put them out. That action caused a church split because people didn’t want to be separated from their friends.
Excommunication is Biblically applicable for today it just doesn’t carry any of the social stigma it once did.

|JVH0212 your absolutely right. This is a weird question. My thought now is to what end?|

|An interesting, safe and traditional point of view. But one that does little in explaining the purpose of the 'Tree of Life' seen at the beginning of the Bible and also at the end. Just it's placement at these two locations says something of it's importance. Also God himself said Adam and Eve must be prevented from eating from the tree or else they would live forever. Does that mean the Tree of life could have removed even a part of the curse of sin, a logical conclusion we would have to make if we were to accept this point of view.|

After rereading my responses to your question I realized I came down with both feet. For that I apologize to you and to anyone one else that I might have offended with my responses to your question on the Pope.
Not to excuse my action but to explain them I can understand and appreciate much of Catholicism except their stance on the Holiness of the Pope and His infallibility. To me that doctrine contains no logic, can not be Biblically supported, and in the light of recorded history it is repugnant.
However I do hold a great love for Catholics (I married one though she has since left the Catholic church) and I expect I will see a few in heaven. :-) Please forgive my outburst, I had no justification to respond as I did.

|Nolan I'm sorry I should have been clearer. Excommunication is biblically applicable, however I believe it would have little or no effect in today's society.|

Surely your not going to try to excuse what took place in the Catholic church as decisions that may look bad from our view point but were in fact right. Many Popes used his office to garner wealth, power while they sunk into depravity and debauchery, keeping harlots and maintaining a drunken stupor.
Beside at one point in the Catholic church there were two Bishops of equal power one the Bishop of Rome and the other the Bishop of Constantinople. Through some political intrigue the Bishop of Rome declared himself the head of the church at which point the Catholic church split. How do you know the Bishop of Rome was the correct successor and not the Bishop of Constantinople? Shortly after this a pope was appointed by King of Spain who held no other consideration than to strengthen his political position.
There is no way you convince a reasonable person the papal succession has been under the guidance of the Lord. Not with the murder, thievery, debauchery that has been involved.

|Briang your whole position is based on Matthew 16:18 "I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.” That position has been hotly debated throughout history and whether Jesus was establishing Peter as the Head of the church or not is something I don’t want to debate.
For the sake of discussion let’s say Peter was installed as head. We then have to look at the facts as they occurred through out history. Succeeding popes have sold any right to that holy position for political or economic gain. The holiness of progression was lost, the line broken. It is no longer theirs to claim. From about 300AD until long after the reformation the Papacy was filled with thieves, cutthroats, and self absorbed egoist. Who extorted, defrauded, profiteered from their position. They wantonly condemned innocence infants to death, burnt, hung, strangled and raped in the name of the church.
No clear thinking person can believe Christ had anything to do with that group of people. Or the line of men that have sat in that position were ordained of God. The line might have been established but the foulness of man broke it over 1700 years ago.

Would you be so kind to give me a Bible verse that supports your opinion at we will be about 27.
You said,"Based on this and many scriptures in the Bible (this is my opinion) I believe that we will be at a maturity age of about 27". I would like to include those scriptures in my list of interesting facts. Thanks
