How/When will the world end? Judgement?
Debate Rounds (4)
Just wanting to know between a smart christian mind and hopefully get answers. Internet Church Talk. You can start your arguments I don't care.
Lets start with Daniel. The King of Babylon Nebuchadnezzar had a dream. Daniel was told it by him and the dream was interpenetrated. A statue of a man stood with a golden head, a silver torso, iron legs, bronze feet with rock mix toes.
Gold head equals Babylon
Silver torso equals Medo - Persians
Iron legs equal Greeks
Bronze feet equal Romans
Rock/Bronze toes equal the 10 major states after the Roman Empire collapse.
Daniel also had a dream sometime later about 4 beasts.
Same thing but with the fourth beast a lion mix unimaginable beast with ten horns. Similar to the ten toes of Bronze/Rock.
The antichrist rose like a little horn within the ten. And committed blasphemies, changed God's law. The will rule for 1260 years. This sounds like the Vatican.
After 1260 years of Papal control until Mr.Bonaparte exiled the Pope and killed him. But the rebirth of the church and St. Malachy prophecy of the popes.
1) The style of writing has Hellenistic influences whereas the Old and New Testament are mostly Hebraic.
2) Peter's Apocalypse has obvious references to Greek mythology while the Old and New testaments stick to Jewish mode of thought.
I agree with the 1st part, but i don't agree that the Vatican has anything to do with it unless you can provide evidence.
Peter has letters within the Bible and we can't believe them?
You have really old books after Jesus' death. Like about his childhood.
Why just Revelation that has Letters to the Seven Churches in Asia Minor.
Revelation is official an true and I would also expect the first Pope, a man chosen to be crucified upside down in honor of Christ. Predicted by Christ. He should know something. Peter, John and his brother James were his three most beloved.
The Church changed the Sabbath form Saturday to Sunday, Priests can forgive sins, only God can.
They started wars and conquered lands with violence. Jesus was Holy, men are sinners and when the church went into Romans hands they didn't do a good job. Peace and acceptance just no persecution.
Priests should marry and have kids, be fruitful and multiply.
All the Christian heads should have another assembly and discuss agenda. Catholics and Protestants Branches.
All should gather from Baptist, to Amish. Evangelicals and Presbyterians.
Conquer some key things.
Prayer and Fasting.
How to spread the Gospel further.
Possible uniting or greater alliance between sects.
It will come like a thief in the night. We may know that is end is nigh, but do not fear of wars and death. For this truly is to come.
I hear it will be death of fire and i am confused about the order of wrath and judgement in revelation. Give your assessment of that.
