Could the real reason behind Jesus prophecy coming to fruition now be because of a great number of people have believed in a judgement day for so long, they have ultimately derailed a brighter future for our species and everything else that lives on this planet.
not sure which prophecy you have in mind there, but i def agree with part two being true; for the world anyway.

But fwiw we live in an empire in the decline/decadence stage, so this would natch influence our outlook i think? In the far east its basically ozzie and harriet right now, everyone’s standard of living there is rising, just a completely different feel. Yet they are still mostly walking in mud lol.

so, its such a weird comparison, seeing most everyone in the developed world, where we have everything, moaning about tomorrow, v people over there amazed at being able to cover their dirt floor.

point being that the brighter future just prolly isnt going to come like we might imagine, everyone holding hands and singing kumbaya; its three steps forward and two back, most of the time.

You are frustrated that the world is passing away, which i get; but you can let that consume you, or you can overcome that, and the choice is really up to you i think

Jesus is a evil A Hole. If this is how you turned out.

Jesus is anything but that. The only reason you hate him is because you don't know him. You would love him if you knew him. Bitterness towards Christ/Christianity is what happens to people because deep down in their heart they know God is real and they blame him for their lives and how they turned out. Life doesn't work right without him in it as you can see. If you are still here I think that is why and it is good to see. I am still praying for you.

Go away and explain to yourself how what you believe has become something as

Born in the year 1973. I have had many years of reflection. I have found nothing that could explain this reality, and I find no comfort in the explanations humans find comfort in. God is no comfort. Therefore I agonize over what I really am in this reality that any God threw me in without warning. At my age life has lost is taste, it's texture, it's excitement. It's all become dull and a grind that can not be remedied by some sales person, or whatever. I don't want to say anymore.

bread is wonderful; the staff of life.
it's bread-flavored. nothing is 'plain'

you are going to have to be humble to appreciate anything -- whoever loves wine and oil will never be rich ((Proverbs 21:7)); whoever loves riches never has enough.

i have seen young who are wise, and old who are foolish.
also the converse; of course i have.
i have lived few days, but more than one.

reflection is not as valuable as seeing-through.

You forgot emotion. Body, mind, emotion and spirit. Emotion, our 6th sense.

isn't it interesting that everyone senses something is wrong with the world

=]


some people blame God
others seek Him

At this junction point of my life I am blaming myself for believing altogether. Had I not been a practicing belief physician, I could have turned things around far sooner.

Who's Cartman and where's Southpark, and what baby?
And how have people derailed a brighter future?
It's only atheists and nonchristians who are messing things up..:)
Atheism is a tiny minority in comparison to the overall God believing group. Nope. It would be the different faith groups who are at constant war with each other for winning souls they believe are lost.

Ah, but atheists have wormed their way into positions of power such as politicians, teachers, film and TV moguls, journalism etc from where they can spread their godless perverted corrupt propaganda.
Christianity is onto all their sly little tricks, that's why they hate it and Jesus..
As ex-bounty hunter Paul said- "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil.." (Ephesians 6:12)

It is a well known fact that in the U.S.A you are more likely to be elected if you have a background in religion/theology or been brought up going to Sunday school. Somehow it's a given that being a Christian goes along way in America, and many other nations follow the same formula.

All I want from this cursed believing society is to kiss the nose of my daughter. Then I can finally be content and die a little more rested.

One question.

Who and where are the real Christians? Are they those people who do what the Gospel's of Jesus the Christ and the Letters of the Apostle's teach? Who does this? Who?
