How many of you think the people on this planet in the year 3000 and later like the year 4000 and above will still be preaching about the return of Christ?

How many of you think a supernatural man will return to Earth before next century?

Please explain why you suspect what you do.

The world will not make it to 3000 or 4000. The Muslims are trying to self fulfill Quranic prophesies of taking over the world and bringing on the presence of the Mahdi. And seeing they are the fastest growing religion by far and sitting at 2 billion...

I doubt many will be, but there might be a few. It's possible that religion as a whole will probably be on the decline. But even if it's not, more people will start to be more open to moderate views. It's about time we got a "new testament" type thing for the Quran, because that thing is barbaric and outdated.

How many of you think a supernatural man will return to Earth before next century?

I'm not going to rule out the possibility of supernatural men coming to visit Earth for the first time. But I have no knowledge of any native supernatural men who might come back.

But out of respect I will answer your question honestly. The Bible says Christians will be beheaded in the end of days. That is happening today and in the year 2015, not 1000 AD. I remember as a kd thinking,"no one beheads people. How can this happen? The world is becoming too modernized to use such archaic killing methods.". Boy was I wrong...

Jesus spoke of the decline of morality in the end. Kids today are the most disrespectful in history, spoiled, and self absorbed.

We know that the world can see an event at once. Until the tv this wasn't possible.

We know that there will be a large sized belief that is religious yet is against Jesus as Christ. Islam fulfills this prophecy.

We know knowledge will be advanced.

We know that the climate becomes unstable. Even Obama chose to make problems with climate change his main battle. The Earth has increased in temperature and the climate is beginning to become disrupted.

We know that a serious push will come against Christianity.

We know that there will be a weapon that can disintegrate eyes from their sockets and dissolve tongues in the mouth while the skin melts off of the bones.

And ...it m ust all come to be at the same time.

And I touched the tip of the information concerning this question.

You know, a psychologist could examine me. He could examine you and find you were gender confused from youth and that this associates with why you need multiple profiles on this very forum. Correct?

the RAPTURE doctrines are less then 170 years old before that there was no such concept.

by the man made year of 3000 or 4000 what might be?

since I AM such a inteligent and brillent parson.

the Skys not even the limit on such a question

the world can END in many ways that are not ENDS.

such as many in these daze would view it as the END of the world if something like the NATURAL electromagnetic pulse theory is possible.

What would happen if the electronic age ended like the dinosaurs?

If the little devices that many CAN'T LIVE without didn't work anymore?

there are many other world changing events that can happen.

lost civilizations where there is about as much known or recorded as the deluded dirt diggers have. The life from slime and humans from apes and such.

religion and science will still be in BUS$NE$$ as will politics, sports and porno of it's sort.

when I'm asked what my favorite scripture is I have a instant answer

nothing new under the sun

it means that humans will be deluded fools of choice first and do their combined best to defend their God given or other right to believe what ever they choose to believe even if the honest truth can be known.

such as the known odds of games of chance, many will enter and FEW will WIN

humans haven't figured out how to get along as a whole as popular society is NOT interested in letting go of the anger monkeys on their backs and but a FEW are interested in GROWING UP and leaving the childish WAYS behind them.

There will NEVER be more mature grown up humans then the deluded lazy daydreamers that choose to deceive and lie to themselves and any others that they might convert to their version of make believe and pretend realities.

by the year 3000 it might be more like the year 1000 or less.

the spice must flow and may the farce be with you Will Robinson.

I suspect you are incorrect. I believe the world, referring to our planet, will still be spinning in this universe in many billions of years to come and I have no reason to doubt that people will still be living on it and still arguing about God and which religion is correct.

It's about time we got a "new testament" type thing for the Quran, because that thing is barbaric and outdated.

I think religion tends to work a bit like waves in the sense of high tides and low tides. Even the bible conveys the idea that religion will be filled with false prophets and deceptions and the love of many will turn cold (Matt 24:11-12)
However, over the centuries more new religions have made their way onto the scene of society. If you think about all the false prophets and deceptions in religions, the author of Matthew was not wrong in the statement I quoted above.
Looking at history it seems that when all is running smoothly and the world is relatively peaceful, there is a decline in religion and people calling out to supernatural entities for help. When things go bad in the lives of people, that is when they seem turn to supernatural entities for help because they have no clue where else to turn in their desperation. Therefore they grasp at straws.
If coincidentally, something happens when they "grasp at straws" to make their hopes and dreams come true, they often credit "the straw" they grasped for saving them. Call it Lady Luck or Fate or God. The concept is all the same.

How many of you think a supernatural man will return to Earth before next century?

I'm not going to rule out the possibility of supernatural men coming to visit Earth for the first time. But I have no knowledge of any native supernatural men who might come back.

Sure, Maybe some supermen will arrive on Earth from planet Krypton. Anything is possible in human imagination, even a supernatural god manifesting as an ordinary man.
They say truth can be stranger than fiction.

So how does you belief fit in with the scriptures which imply "the end" and "the beginning" are much the same?

Ecc 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

Matt 24:37
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

The concept I see in the story is that human nature does not change over time. People still argue and war and do horrid things to other people. They did in the past, they still do today and they still will in future because the children learn this behaviour from the adults.

It depends how many still want to believe all life forms arose from the same single source and chase that fantasy through all their circumstantial evidence.

I would hope by then that the intelligent people realise there are many different sources not just one and evolution happens very fast, not slowly at all. It takes very little time for a microscopic cell to become a human who is capable of breathing the Earths air.
You only need to understand the reproduction cycle to know that is true.

I agree. Fashions and trends can end or be recycled. Humans categorize certain historical events into periods of time which eventually end and are accepted as an "end of an age".
Old things die and new things are born.
Old inventions become obsolete and are replaced by new ones
Old ideas and theories are replaced with new ones.
However, the "new" things are not really "new" to people who understand the cycles of life and human communication.
They are simply recycled old things presented in different coloured and shaped wrappers.

We could say the world ends for every individual on the day they die since their individual world comes to an end. Yet the world also continues on at the same time for all who are still living on it.

We could also say the world ends daily or dies daily as it passes away with time like today turns into yesterday. Todays world turns into yesterdays world and is replaced by a new world each tomorrow.

such as many in these daze would view it as the END of the world if something like the NATURAL electromagnetic pulse theory is possible.

The insecure adults of the world teach their children to hold on to the same security blankets as they hold on to, even if those "blankets" are no better than imaginary friends who give them a false sense of security.
They seem to believe a false sense of security is better than none at all.

There will NEVER be more mature grown up humans then the deluded lazy daydreamers that choose to deceive and lie to themselves and any others that they might convert to their version of make believe and pretend realities.


Agreed. The elderly decrease and the babies increase.

by the year 3000 it might be more like the year 1000 or less.

That could be possible if the people of the world decide to blow themselves up by then and whoever survives needs to begin again from scratch.

In another 1000 years, providing human activity or an asteroid etc hasn't destroyed our planet, science maybe well have solved exactly how the universe came into being. I suspect when it does no deity will have been involved in its creation, and therefore no need for religion.

The possibility does of course exist that Christ may wait 3000 years before returning. But if this is the case then by this point Christians will constitute a very small minority of the human population.

I would hope by then that the intelligent people realise there are many different sources not just one and evolution happens very fast, not slowly at all. It takes very little time for a microscopic cell to become a human who is capable of breathing the Earths air.
You only need to understand the reproduction cycle to know that is true.

are you saying evolution was wrong...

Evolution is basically about change over a period of time.
I am saying that I believe some aspects of the evolution theory are fantasy ( sci fi ) based on speculation and ignorance.

On the other hand the process of change over a period of time make perfect sense and is realistic but I do not believe it takes billions of years for single cells to grow and change into a fully grown mature form. The process is extremely fast in most cases.

Our ancestors who created the theory of evolution were unable to observe the evolution of a single cell to a mature form in the same way we can observe the whole process today.

Anyone can observe the development of a seed to a mature form in their lifetime and understand the process is very fast compared to billions of years.
Different forms of life obviously take different times to form.
When you look at the reproduction cycle of every form of life, you can observe every stage of its evolution from a single cell to the mature form and there are no missing links.

I see no logical reason to believe each reproduction cycle of different life forms has not always reproduced in exactly the same way it does today.

Growth and change is obvious over time but it definitely does not take billions of years for any single cell to evolve into its mature form. Besides that, it is obvious that not all things come from the same original cell.

I happen to believe the concept of all things arising from exactly the same single source is science fiction and religious fiction. People need a lot of faith in human speculation, perceptions, theories and doctrines to believe it.

Choose your own adventure story.
Once upon a time there was a single thing that has always existed..... That single thing evolved into billions of life forms.... Or... The single thing created billions of life forms. It makes no difference if you choose to believe the sci fi version or the religious version.

Both versions basically invite people to believe all things came from the same single source. Since it cannot be disproved or proved to be 100% certain, people choose to believe which version tickles their ears the most. Obviously people on both sides claim they have evidence but you need to be educated in their particular fields to understand their evidence and their speculations and conclusions about the evidence.

The movie makers of the world have no clue what they are missing without you on their staff. Your perceptions are most inspirational. Even the titles make me laugh.
Your sense of humour is beyond compare.

How many of you think a supernatural man will return to Earth before next century?

Please explain why you suspect what you do.

In another 1000 years, providing human activity or an asteroid etc hasn't destroyed our planet, science maybe well have solved exactly how the universe came into being. I suspect when it does no deity will have been involved in its creation, and therefore no need for religion.

That's about as likely as science finding the end of space or the beginning of eternity.

Are you implying Christianity or religion in general will decrease rather than increase in the next 1000 years?

Do you believe the scriptures will be relevant to all generations of humans for all eternity or will there come a time when the scriptures are no longer relevant to any person on Earth?

The scriptures will always be relevant to human beings. However, the future will bring about an environment which will make it a lot more difficult for people to believe the gospel and apply it to their lives, as has been the case for a long time now.

If by "always" you mean for all eternity, are you suggesting there will never be a time in the future when people no longer need salvation from sin?

If the promise of a future coming of Christ is going to apply to all people for all eternity, logically Christ needs to wait for all eternity before he returns to Earth.
If the supernatural character Christ returned tomorrow, the promise of his return would become null and void to anyone after that, unless of course, the promise of a return is the same kind of continual promise as the return of the morning or the return of the light of the world which never left the world in the first place.
