Re: Psychopath/Dragon/Reptile - READ ABOUT MARY BELL
Okay, lets get down to actual Scriptural passages.
Let's start with ones in these links, which I feel describes what is really going on perfectly. Remember, there are things that are sealed-up until the end-times and then make perfect sense.
First and foremost, the link on this thread Where Did Evil Come From. I think that site explains it so well but there are more: Now, do I think these people have scales and glow green - NO. I simply think they are identified as psychopathic. That is certainly reptilian enough for me. But, it is all about metaphor.
These descriptions in these links to me convey what the entire story in Scripture was all about. What happened and what is happening and what will happen and why. Nothing is taken out of context when you look at the whole picture and direction. I think Sherry Shriner really explains it all so well.
SATAN IS A DRAGON/SERPENT. IF YOUR FATHER WAS THE DEVIL - THEN YOU ARE 1/2 DRAGON/SERPENT. MAKES SENSE TO ME.
Salvation is through the grace of God. And there is one thing that I truly believe is that when you are dying, as your brain is deprived of oxygen, doctors would say the near death experience is caused by the process of dying - but what if God made us that way to facilitate a point where we are met by Him and He extends the invitation to all - but not all can accept.
I am so sure that that is why most of us don't die easily too. Because in suffering, people call out to God to help them and get close to God through suffering.
But, I feel there is a segment of the population that simply aren't going to make it - because they have no human emotions whatsoever an no conscience at all that would be what would be needed to accept God's grace or be touched in that way. It is about capacity.
