How Can Jesus Give Everlasting Life To Immortal Beings? by Jessicha(f): 8:05am On Feb 10, 2016
most religions teach that humans are immortal beings , i.e human exists forever, have a never ending life

that explains why many believ when a man dies he only shed his skin... he is alive . but what dies is his lifeless skin (think abt a snake shedding its skin to get it better )

therefore, not mortals ...

if humans are immortal beings, how can Jesus come to give everlasting life to immortal beings ? so of what basis is Jesus claim of giving man everlasting life if man is already destined to live forever ?

someone sud explain this absurdity

Romans 6:23, (KJV)
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

That implies a person who sins would die as a penalty for his sin. However thru Jesus, God can grant a repentant sinner, who has faith in Jesus everlasting life even after dying.

This scripture contradicts the teaching of immorality of the soul; those who teach that eternity must be spent, whether in heaven or hell, should look at this scripture again. To spend eternity we must have eternal life, which comes only thru faith in Jesus. Note that the above scripture does not say where the eternal life would be spent, but that it is given as a gift thru Jesus by God.

So if one who doesn't believe in Jesus or follow his step is to spend eternity in hell, from where did he get his eternal life, since the penalty of his sins is death?

Food for thought. Good question Jessicha

Because without His Salvation, what we have is shame and EVERLASTING CONTEMPT

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Daniel 12:2
This passage powerfully accentuates the immortality of the soul.

Until we understand "death" then do we understand immortality. When a man's body(flesh) dies, wat happens to his life force/soul? Trying to cover all bets is why religions are being perpetuated.

My beloved brethen in christ(For those who have not found grace or are probably baby christian who are still living under the abolished law).

STOP MAKING OUR GRACIOUS, LOVING AND EVER SMILING GOD TO LOOK LIKE AN ANGRY AND WICKED GOD.

It is so PATHETIC!!!

Beloved, if you believe that christ died for your sins,
then why do you think that God can still punish you for the sins he punished christ for, that's why it is called grace-unmerited favour/what we do not deserve. If you will still be punished for your sins, then it means that christ was not SACRIFICED but MURDERED by God.

A sinner will not go to hell because of the fact that
the person committed sin but because the person is
misbelieving his(christ)death by thinking that there
is another more work required of him to be saved or
that the person refused the man who took the
consequence of the sins of the world(including his or hers), the wages of everyman's sin which is DEATHto himself by dying on the cross, and the man is Jesus CHRIST

THERE IS NO WORK REQUIRED FOR YOUR
SALVATION, BUT ONLY TO CALL UPON THE NAME OF
JESU AND YOU SHALL BE SAVED.

Jesus said; whosoever that shall call upon me shall
be saved.

There is no amount of right living you will live for
you to please GOD that's why the bible says "our
righteousness is as a filthy rag before God" that's
why Jesus has to come and die for us so that our lost relationship will be restored with God(with sin or no sin)

The first problem with many of us is that we hardly
forgive ourselves even after accepting christ.

Secondly, the problem of wrong believing.

Thirdly, we are too sin-concious instead of love and
grace-concious.

But why would someone enjoy intentionally
committing sin after seeing such a great love and
grace from God through christ?

As for me, each time I see sin before me and I
remember God's love and grace, I will just melt or
possibly burst in tears of joy(simply because I don't
worth such love because in my holiest form I AM A
BEAST before God) and overcome the sin without
stress or even unknowingly, though even if I commit it, I know that I will not suffer for it because christ has suffered the consequences for me.


I don't even know when last I committed sin, but
still when I look at my works(which is 100% right
living) and look at the grace of God, I will simply call
myself A BEAST, but in christ I AM A HOLY NATION,
A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, RIGHTEOUS KING, A CHOSEN
ONE, CHILD OF YAWEH(as christ is, so are we in
faith)because I can't compare my works with the
grace and love of God through christ.


SEE THE SOLUTION FOR LIVING RIGHTLY;
1. Forgive yourself and forget your former sins, and
try your best to see yourself as HOLY, LOVELY,
RIGHTEOUS before God, under all cost, no matter
what you did, doing and will do. STOP FEELING
GUILTY ALL THE TIME!!!

2. Start being GOD'S GRACE & LOVE-CONCIOUS
instead of SIN-CONCIOUS.(It will make you to always thinks about how kind, lovely and graceful God is throughout your life). Constant looking up to Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith.

3. Start believing rightly, ask the holyspirit to help
you understand before reading the bible and to give
you the revelations that are behind the letters.


No.3 solution is the problem with many christians
who misunderstood Mathew 5: 17-18 and Romans
6:1. It is a very big problem to them that makes
them to ignorantly reject grace and stick to law
without even knowing.


1.While in Mathew 5: 17-18, Jesus said"17. Think
not that I am come to destroy the law, or the
prophets; I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18.
For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass,
one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the
law, TILL ALL BE FULLFILLED."

It simply means UNTIL ALL IS FULFILLED the law will
not be abolished.

So Question; UNTIL WHEN WAS ALL FULFILLED?
Answer; AT THE CROSS, at the point he said "IT IS
FINISHED!!!" And gave up the ghost, the law
became abolished.
Now we are not saved by work(law)but by faith
(grace) we have in christ.

2. In Romans 6:1;"what shall we say then? Shall we
continue IN sin, that grace may abound?"
The problem with believers and this chapter is that
they combine sin, as in, nature and act as act.
Sin are in two aspect BY NATURE AND BY ACTION.
Of which every single soul in this life is sinful by
nature, even if a new born baby, but in the case of a
new born baby he will go to heaven(if I should say)
because the baby has not reached an age of
accountability and of course, didn't reject accepting
Jesus.

So, when you see or hear "IN" it is talking about
nature and when you see "TO" it is talking about
action.

The word "IN" in that verse means NATURE and not
action.

See the difference; "shall we continue IN(nature)
sin" and "shall we continue TO(action) sin".

That's why he went to the next 2 verses to say;"2.
GOD FORBID, how shall we that are dead to sin, live
any longer thereIN(nature of sin). 3. Know ye not,
that so many of us as baptized INto(nature of christ) Jesus christ were baptized into his death"

I pray that anyone who is not sure of his salvation
will be very and certainly sure about his or her
salvation in Jesus' name, say AMEEN.

Matthew 22:32
God said this (highlighted blue) to Moses after the three men had departed from the earth.

Besides, what meaneth this?

33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.
Genesis 49:33

Sleeping in the dust refers to their interred dead bodies, not the soul.

Bros, you are preaching "Once saved always saved", if I believe in the finish work of Christ, but keep allowing my flesh to lead to me sin, still believing that christ has paid for those, yes he has paid for them, but he did something else, he provided the grace to live above sin. The ones who will say to him on the last, we cast demons in your name, but He will say to them, depart you workers of iniquity, are the ones who believed but continued in sin.
Christ always will say to anyone he forgives, Go and sin no more.
If you get saved, but don't motify your flesh, your fleshy desires will send you to hell fire. If you are saved, but still lie, cheat and fornicate. Hmm. You will go to hell, because what keeps us away from Christ is the Nature of sin, which is of the devil.

Jessicha. What is absurd abt the immotrality of a soul? If a soul is not immortal, why will there be any need for resurrection? Since you the JWs believe that, when man dies it ends there, no after life. What do we do with the scriptures with reference to resurrection? The Bible says, on the last day, everyone shall resurrect, some to life eternal, but some to condemnation, where there's weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matt 13:30. This experience will take place in the realm other than this one. Flesh gets consumed by fire, but the soul doesn't, its your soul which will burn.
Jessicha, whether you consider the teachings of Christ absurd or not. The soul of man is immortal.

The flesh after burial must see corruption but not the soul.

However, can you expantiate on this:

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

The problem with many of us is that we think that our self righteousness(works of righteousness) can even get close to 0.0000001% before God. If it so, then jesus wouldn't have come.

My friend, no work is needed for our eternal life because it is not a REWARD, but a GIFT, we've already received in christ.

The reason why many christian will still go to hell is because of self righteousness. In case of adam, the devil told them that they will be like God,if they eat the forbidden fruit, by knowing good and evil.

But without knowing that by grace, they are already like God, they added there work and failed.

Right living is of good moral but it becomes an insult to the grace of God when you will start to think that it is your works of righteousness that justifies you, maintains you and gives you eternal life but without knowing that eternal life is not a REWARD(you work for it) but a GIFT(we do not deserve and didn't work for it).

Grab grace!

The main things that can keep you away from grace are HOILIER THAN THOU, SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS, LAW KEEPING because they will eventually end you up in SIN-CONCIOUSNESS, FEAR, GUILTY, CONDEMNATION and the next is death in hell.

Why? Because u can NEVER always stay away from the wrong and do the right- law keeping.

Bro, I believe her point was that we are saved, not by works, but by grace THROUGH FAITH. Now that faith , though abstract, expresses itself by love (includes holiness of life). Hence where the latter is absent, that faith is vain though it be professed with all vehemency!

That is why John the Beloved said:

He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
1 John 2:4,5

Note that this is not saying we are saved by keeping His Word; rather it says the proof of the faith by which He saves us is the fact that we walk in the Spirit thus fulfilling the Law by the Spirit's enabling. Hence, if we claim to believe but live sinful (lawless) lives, we deceive ourselves.

No. Jesus peace be upon him, slave of Allah is a man , created by Allah to be a messenger to the lost sheep of Israel. Jesus peace be upon him didn't know when figs are in season, who touched him in a crowd , or when judgement day is. He urinated & deficated, slept, and came into this world through a vaginal canal.

you miss the point completely, let me ask, how did human achieve this immortality ? The human NATURE is not immortal, it is the spirit and soul which is immortal. Immortality is achieved when the body of the
believer is raised and transformed and then united with the soul.

Because jesus gave us no law or laws, he came to give us what self righteousness(law keeping) cannot give us, that's why it's called grace.

What Jesus said in mattew 5, was to prove the laws of moses wrong, to correct it's flaws and to tell the pharisees that though they keep the law, still there laws are filled with unrighteousness, and that they are not keeping it well.

And if you look at the correction of Jesus, it is more harsh than the law of moses. Because jesus said; anyone who shall see a woman and have lust in her without even touching the person has already committed the sin of adultery or fornication. Very harsh!

That's why they became angry at Jesus, saying that he was trying to abolish the law.

When jesus was in this world, he had a hard time with the pharisees and scribes, because they felt so self righteous, holier than thou attitude, that Jesus was trying his best to make them know that they are so sinful despite there self righteousness, law keeping, and to convict them of their unrighteousness.

Then, he said that nothing shall be removed from the law, TILL ALL BE FUFILLED.

All was fulfilled at the cross when he died and the presence of the lord departed from the holies of holies chamber of the temple.

And immediately the law became abolished!

So now, you live rightly by the fruit of the spirit so that people around you will enjoy the virtues that you have in you(salt of the world) and not to make eternal life because eternal is a gift(that no work can merit because if so, then christ's death is a big WASTE) and a not reward because christ has don it all

you miss the point completely, let me ask, how did human achieve this immortality ? The human NATURE is not immortal, it is the spirit and soul which is immortal. Immortality is achieved when the body of the
believer is raised and transformed and then united with the soul.
contradiction gallore ...

what is spirit ?

what is soul ?

Can you quote me directly before making your accusations? What's it about if Abel 'go to heaven' or 'go to hell fire'?


you said

[b] "Because without His Salvation, what we have is shame and EVERLASTING CONTEMPT"

therefore to test the validity of this statement, let's see what happen before Jesus shed his blood for mankind ... where did Abel go when he died? if people ascend to heaven without Jesus sacrifice that proves ur statement above is a pure lie .



Sure, but when God said that to Moses, were the men -Abraham, Isaac etc- on Earth? Why would God introduce Himself as the God of the dead? Answer!


they are living to him , on the basis of the Resurrection hope - matt 22:31


The flesh after burial must see corruption but not the soul.


stop adding to the word of God

act 13;36 said DAVID , DAVID . DAVID , was laid with his forefathers and did see corruption not skin


However, can you expantiate on this:

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar [b]the souls of them that were slain for the word of God,
and for the testimony which they held:

10 and they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, Holt and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
Revelations 6:9,10

this is cool , at least this proves people don't go to heaven to be with Jesus. ... they are assigned to spend their entire life under the altar , if the fifth seal is literal .. the sixth seal is literal too the stars of heaven falling down upon the earth , death riding a horse .. Hades walking .

Omg ! false religion is sick

you don't understand the church teaching that each man already have an immortal life , the only problem is where they will spend it .. either in heaven or hell ?

but John 3:16 said Jesus came to offer man eternal life , something the church already says everyman have . so how can Jesus give everlasting life to already immortal beings ? remember that based on church teaching they are destined to live forever , so of what basis is Jesus claim of giving man everlasting life if man is already destined to live forever ?
