Was that supposed to be a serious commentOh my gosh.......sooooooo many words. And the few I wrote in the OP contradicts them all........because you have the order reversed.
And you simply fail to realize that all your many verses of scripture apply to children of God and NOT children of men. Applying all your verses to God's children eliminates any and all contrdictins with Divine Truth. Applying the passages to children of men CREATES YOUR CONTRADICTION WITH SCRIPTURE (and I am not yelling just emphasizing).
You addressed nothing at all
and your comment does not even make sense
The spiritually dead are not the children of God
and the argument being addressed concerned the meaning of dead which you have done nothing at all to prove
You assume dead like Lazarus but the bible never associates the story about Lazarus with soteriology
On the other hand is the prodigal son
He was dead separated from the Father
Luke 15:24 (KJV)
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
Reunion with the father is making alive of the son who was dead
corresponding to lost and found
The church at Sardis was dead and told to repent
Revelation 3:1 (KJV)
1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
Eph 2 after speaking of being dead in trespass goes on to expound
Ephesians 2:11-13 (KJV)
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in with the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
spiritual death is separation from God due to rebellion
being made alive is being made nigh
Other than that trust is not ascertained by what one wants but what the word of God says
You have many verses you need to deal with which are contrary to your beliefs
