What are your opinions or beliefs regarding the raising of the dead as stated in the Bible? Do you feel it is a literal translation or could it be symbolic of something else?
I had a fiew people on my Facebook page bring it up and thought it would be interested to hear some of your opinions on this topic. It would be nice to hear from you.
Hear are a few statements that came up so far.
“I went to Word Of Life Church, to see the Prophet Tony Atkinson. I received a powerful prophetic word. He stated” I will lead international Crusades, start many orphanages, and raise the dead, also the Lord is well please with my walk.” Make sure this Sunday you come to church with me you will receive an encouraging word from the Lord.”
“I don’t think that corpes will be raised. They are rotted like zombies. Don’t you think It is speaking about souls being raised.”
“It sounds like one of those cases where the belief was there. Leadership discovered the era, but rather than come clean they continued to restate the belief and incorporate it into the dogma of the church.”
“Our body is temporal and our soul is eternal. We would have no want or use for our bodies after death. In fact it would be a demotion to once again only be part spirit. Perhaps it refers to rebirth via a second life as being soul born into a new fetis. This would add another delema though involving an entirely new argument. Reincarnation is not something that sits well with the church, but it seems to be the better explanation in this case.”
“I will have to ask for an answer from God on this one.”
