“The Bible isn't clear about the intermediate state. . .”

That is Hans Deventer lamenting.

The Bible says nothing about an intermediate state.

Why does this Deventer persist that it does? Is this NazNet staffer a part of the Church of the Nazarene? NazNet says he is.

Yet that denomination no way states anything about such a state. It is bogus. Yet the staffer continues posting on the Dave McClung site that the latter states it is supportive of the Church of the Nazarene.

This is totally confusing and disturbing for it goes on and on and on.

When is this intrusion of non-biblical nonsense going to come to an end so that readers are not taken off the biblical course?

McClung has been appealed to about this matter. Nothing done.

Deventer has been appealed to about this matter. Nothing done.

There it is on the site for the world to read as if it is an issue crucial to the Church of the Nazarene.

The Bible speaks of heaven and hell, no intermediate state.

Roman Catholicism speaks of limbo for the unbaptized dead children and purgatory for those not accepted directly into heaven.

All this is heresy.

So where does NazNet staffer Deventer come up with his own concoction of the intermediate state?

Please, NazNet, clean up your site or apologize to readers and the Church of the Nazarene for being sloppy in maintaining your site or purposefully directing readers into heresy.
