The Kingdom of God is not a place, It's actually God ruling over our hearts!

The Kingdom of God is in some peoples heads.

In fact the notion of a Kingdom of God is probably in most peoples heads, given the free flow of associated information.

Though he level of importance attributed to the notion of a Kingdom of God varies considerably, depending mostly on the intensity of our formative conditioning. (Childhood brainwashing).

bahahahahahaha, how fucking amusing. One of your gods said it was due 2000yrs ago, if your idiot god didn't know when it was due someone like you would have no idea.
Your pathetic platitudes are exactly that.

There never was a time, nor will there ever be a time when God does not reign supreme.

It's both, when you leave this world there will be places for you to journey. The Kingdom of God is symbolic and literal. Meaning there is a place but it also can penetrate the depth of your being. So while you can inhabit the Kingdom of God you can also transmit it.

How long can you live with a bare assertion? 

  • In fact the notion of a Kingdom of God is probably in most peoples heads, given the free flow of associated information.

Associated knowledge/information? yeah that's generally how people learn lol. 

Though he level of importance attributed to the notion of a Kingdom of God varies considerably, depending mostly on the intensity of our formative conditioning. (Childhood brainwashing).

You can label it whatever you like that's your choice, but if you want to get real start by asking questions. I'll entertain them if you like.

The afterlife is not representative of the Kingdom of God.

Because many things can transpire there. There's more than just the "Kingdom Of God". Which is symbolic for the pure in heart, where they might dwell.

Dr. C&P Franklin,

YOUR COMICAL AND STUPID QUOTE: "The Kingdom of God is not a place, It's actually God ruling over our hearts!"

Before you make a greater fool of yourself on DebateArt, specifically state what chapter and verse that supports your otherwise Satanic quote exemplifying that there is NO HEAVEN, fool!

Dr. C&P Franklin,

For your lost memory, I'll post my question to you once again since you did not address it. Ready?  

"Before you make a greater fool of yourself on DebateArt, specifically state what chapter and verse that supports your otherwise Satanic quote exemplifying that there is NO HEAVEN, fool! (Your post #1)

Remember, DebateArt members are watching you RUN AWAY again from very simple religious questions!

My first claim was that it is both, what good would there be a Kingdom of God in our hearts if a Kingdom of God doesn't exist lol? why would Jesus talk about some Kingdom that only exists in the heart, no, when you leave this form you will still exist. If you still exist there must be a place for that existence.

luke 17:20-21

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.


If you cannot understand this, then learn first to fear God, for it is the beginning of wisdom.  and then obey god and recieve the holy spirit. 

"the fool has said in his heart, there is no God."

I will live as long as I do, with the same opinion.  Unless the Big Guy should happen to stick his out head from behind the cloud that he's hiding behind and politely introduce himself.

Which is what one would expect an omni-sensible God to do.

As it stands I'm pretty confident that the Kingdom of God exists only as brain data, which will dissipate upon death. You've been led to confidently believe otherwise, which is just fine and dandy.

Of course, we end up as ever with the same old, same old. You cannot prove the unprovable and I cannot disprove the unprovable. No matter how much we might rant and rave.

LOL.

zedvictor4,

YOUR QUOTE: " Unless the Big Guy should happen to stick his out head from behind the cloud that he's hiding behind and politely introduce himself."

What has always embarrassed me about being a TRUE Christian, is the fact that our Yahweh/Jesus/Spirit God verbally communicated with his Hebrew following all the time within the scriptures. Now, in 2019, He remains as silent as a church mouse.  I wonder why?  :(

Doc C&P Franklin,

ANOTHER EMBARRASSING QUOTE OF YOURS: "I think your mixing up Heaven and The Kingdom of God"

YOUR TOPIC OF THIS THREAD:  "The Kingdom of God is not a place, It's actually God ruling over our hearts!"

Once again, you show your total ineptness in front of the members. Do I have to do the simple math for you above, in showing you the blatant contradiction in terms? Huh?  GET IT? YES?


Doc, there should be a "live" test of logic101 to anyone that wants to join DebateArt, therefore it would  prevent in having to let your 'kind of incompetence" in this forum!

That would be the source of this Kingdom, the only point here is that it's not restricted to any location. The Kingdom of God in our hearts of course is not literal, it's symbolic that we don't have to be in heaven to witness God or spiritual principles rather that observation is always available to those who apply. Don't get me wrong though, God is present throughout all of creation, but there certainly are places that are labeled heaven. Jesus exists in an actual Kingdom not a figurative one. Do you know what a kingdom is?
