  • Answer: People frequently mention that St. Peter is the gatekeeper.

    However, the Bible never mentions a gatekeep of heaven, by name. In Revelation 21:12 it says "It had a great and high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names were written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel."

    In the New Testament Our Lord tells Peter, "And I will give to you the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind on Earth shall be bound also in Heaven. Whatever you loose on Earth shall be loosed also in Heaven."
  • Answer: I have only heard of qigong as a method for advanced practitioners to control and temporarily displace the perception of pain; note that the pain will still be sensed at the receptors in the skin/organs involved, but the perception of pain by the mind will be diminished or felt to be absent.
  • Answer: I have seen similar questions; the assumption is that one will always tell the truth, the other will always lie. The question can either be: "What would the other guardian say if I asked which was the way to heaven", or "What would you say if I asked you which was the way to heaven", or some variation. 
    There simply is no guardians or gates written in the KJV text which I am aware of that related to souls access to heaven. In Revelation 20 it is written," and I saw the dead small and great stand before God and the books were opened and another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. ... and they were judged even man according to their works. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    Verses concerning your soul returning to our Father upon your death are written in Ecclesiastes 12:7: Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    Luke 16 defines a condition for those returning souls who are not in good standing according to their works.


    It is not you who asked any questions permmiting you to enter through the gates of heaven, but it is you who are asked questions by the sentinals who guard the gates. You have to justify yourself as being worthy to make entry through these royal portals. Right answers to the questions asked permit you to stand on the right hand of God with His sheep or on His left with the goats. All are permitted to go to the spirit world without any questions being asked of us. But not to the kingdom where God resides. Remember when we are eventually asked questions we cannot lie our way into heaven, for all our doing are known to God.

  • Answer: how did the theory of biogenesis lead the way for germ theory disease
  • Answer: x assumes employees are unmotivated etc and have to be handled with severity like prison inmates
    Y assumes employees want to be productive, helpful and creative and can be managed to maximize these efforts.

    A theory X manager will soon beat the motivation out of a theory Y worker, thus proving to himself that X was right all along.

    A theory Y manager will eventually figure out that a theory X worker believes people are unmotivated because the worker himself is unmotivated.

    Thus, it is better for work teams to be all X or all Y. Given that, the Y teams will out produce the X teams.
  • Answer: The theory of biogenesis states that living cells arise from preexisting living cells. In the theory of germ disease, it was found that diseases are caused by microorganisms such as bacteria. The correlation is that microorganisms are able to thrive off living cells.
