'The blight of the Pharisee's heart in olden times was doctrine without love. With the teachings of the Pharisees Christ had little quarrel, but with the pharisaic spirit He carried on unceasing warfare to the end. It was religion without the indwelling Spirit. It is no use to deny that Christ was crucified by persons who would today be called Fundamentalists. This should prove most disquieting if not down-right distressing to us who pride ourselves on our orthodoxy. An unblessed soul filled with the letter of truth may actually be worse off than a pagan kneeling before a fetish."
It does not take a difficult search of the net to see the state of the church today;

You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.
Matthew 23:24 and 25
Is not the basis of homosexuality "self-indulgence"?
What hypocrisy! What travesty for conscientious Christians to be labelled 'deviants' for questioning whether Jesus had a "beginning" or trying to explain the "Trinity" - a word that I cannot fail to remind you is NOT FOUND IN THE BIBLE - or the "eternalness of Hell"! Yet the members and leaders of mainline and evangelical churches are considered legitimate in their faith while accepting deviant and outright perverse behavior not only in their membership, but even the ordination of those who practice such into the ministry! What a state of affairs that exists in the churches when those who have legitimate concerns regarding some of the 'sacred cow' doctrines within the church become labeled 'deviants' but the 'camel' of homosexuality in the ministry is swallowed down so smoothly, along witb a mouthful of other perverse practices such as adultery. incest, abortion, communism, the support of Marxist revolutionaries, and more!
But alas, such has been the sorry state of affairs throughout various sad phases of church history. The Reformation saw those who were calling for reform burned at the stake, as did the Great Inquisition, and in other places and times similar persecution has been directed at those who have dared to challenge established doctrine within the church - doctrine which often was canonized by councils and people who were very questionable in their motives and behavior.
Such is the case with the topics under discussion, 'The Trinity' and 'Do People Burn In Hell Forever & Ever?' The questioning surrounding these doctrines have been a source of teaching and concern since the earliest church fathers. Attempts to discredit those seeking light in these areas have been initiated in each century, but it has continued to break forth as a nagging and unresolved set of questions - all the rantings against it by its oponents notwithstanding.
So friend. With the mountain of evidence that is provided herein from the Bible, are you sure that you want to 'blacklist' my website? Are you sure that Jesus will agree with your view? Will He be happy with you for snuffing out this information? For making sure that these questions are not passed around to your flock?
"Why don't you judge for yourselves what is right?
"Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering." Luke 11:52
Are you SURE that YOU will be "entering"...???
