In the Botanic Gardens of Ft. Worth was also a logoon or something like that. Sure, it was nice in the day, but the locals mentioned to us how at night, when it's dark and black, a creature ascends from the depths of the lagoon.... and sings and dances Grease Lightning from Grease...

Q: What are the length, width, and height of the arc that Noah built according to the Scriptures and what are those dimensions in modern times?

The Greek word for immortality basically means “not mortal”. One who is immortal has life that is unending, endless, interminable. One having everlasting life, on the other hand, is mortal and can die. Those who are immortal are Jehovah God, Jesus Christ, the 144,000 annointed christians that will reign with Jesus in heaven. Angels are not immortal, since they can die. The Bible states how Jehovah has already passed judgement on many angels, such as Satan and the angels that followed him. After the thousand year reign of Jesus Christ, humans will not be immortal. But Jehovah has promised that they will have everlasting life on a peaceful and beautiful paradise here on earth.

Here are a couple of responses i received during the week:

"Inmortal means you never die and eternal life, you can."

"Being immortal means that you cannot die and eternal life is what we human beings can acquire if we maintain ourselves strong and faithful and make it to the end of these hard times by serving Jehovah the way he would like us to."

Thanks E. and mom.

Jehovah showed mercy towards David, because Jehovah had made a pact with him, that his kingdom would be established to time indefinite (2 Samuel 7.16). And the king of that kingdom would have to be a Permanent Heir, which was to be Jesus Christ (Luke 1.32,33). If David had died, the prophecy wouldn’t have been completed. Also, Jehovah read David’s heart and saw the sincerity of his repentance. There were consequences, though. The son he had with Bath-sheba died (2 Samuel 12.14).

Here are a couple of great responses to the question i received by a couple of sisters:

Jehovah decided to take this case in his own hands seeing that he saw David’s repentant heart, since the judges of the day weren’t able to. Jehovah made an exception with David, even though his actions didn’t go without consequences, such as the death of his son he had with Bath-sheba.

Well, Jehovah was able to read David’s heart and see how he felt. Also, he had previously made a pact of the kingdom with David, and because of that, Jehovah decided to take care of that case personally ….. I think that’s the answer. : /

Thank you, "K" and "M".

I will post another question Monday. :)

The Mosaic Law stated that the penalty for committing adultery was death (Deuteronomy 22.22-24; Leviticus 20.10). The same went for committing murder (Numbers 35.30). If so, why didn’t King David die when he committed adultery with Bath-sheba, then had her husband, Uriah, killed in battle (2 Samuel 11.1-27)? Under the Law, he deserved death, but why was he allowed to live?
