Yesterday, I wrote on ''Appalling Ignorance'', and no sooner had I posted it them someone wrote that he had secretly raptured the church, and had saved millions from hell. That's Only Jesus Christ's prerogative. No man has the right, nor power to do so. That someone would respond as he did, shows his utter lack of Biblical Knowledge and that he is still in his lost, totally depraved condition, and is on his way to hell. All that God wants us to know, be, and do, He has written in The Bible. It alone is to define everything about us.

Today there's an appalling lack of Bible knowledge even among those who profess to believe The Bible and The Doctrines of Grace. God puts no premium on ignorance, and will not accept it as an excuse, when we stand before Him, either as believers before The Judgment Seat Of Christ, after The Rapture of The Church, or if you are lost, at The Great White Throne Judgment at the end of the Millennium. To make statements, without it being backed up by Scripture, is to act very foolishly. To attack a fellow saint is to go against God's Word, and not to display love, which we are commanded to do. No one has the corner on all the truth, and when we get to Glory, we will all find where we were wrong. Knowledge of The Bible will guard us from making many foolish statements, and doing many foolish things. So Study to show yourselves approved unto God
In a post on a blog, I read one saying that Dr. Adrian Rogers is in hades awaiting the resurrection. This statement was made by one unlearned. When Christ arose He led all the saved in Paradise to Heaven [Ephesians 4], and since then, ''To be absent from the body is to be present with the lord.'' Christ said to the Thief, ''Today thou shalt be with me in paradise'' -hell, but Paul said he was caught up to paradise, into the third heaven, showing Christ had moved it.
