    The timing and circumstances of the second coming are interesting but far from the most important issue we face.
    Of prime importance is summed up in the words of Jesus in John 14:6, "no one comes to the Father except through Me". So should you rely on your good deeds in life to be good with God? According to His Son Jesus that would be a fatal flaw.
    According to scripture the only standard God will judge by is your faith and acceptance of His provided perfect sacrifice, Jesus, or your rejection of Him. God extends to you a gift of forgiveness. You either accept (on His terms, Jesus only) or reject that gift. Trusting in any other way to be right with God will be taken as a rejection of His offer.

    The people that planned and executed Jesus on the Cross were the same type of people that you talk about. He threatened their “operations” and money by turning the people’s attention toward himself. People no longer needed them.

    Idk much about the Catholic religion. Beyond what you mentioned, it’s way too complicated with man made rules/people. Just follow the Bible if u want.

    True. Religion is not needed as it is man made. Non believers always confuse Christianity with religion.

    Oof. Imagine your surprise when you die and the lights go out. All that worrying about what comes after was for naught, and you're just a cold body in a pine box in the dirt. Welcome to the afterlife, plebe.

    Also, I find it hilarious that everyone's go-to ninja move on here with me is to try and discredit my intelligence. It's always, "You're not as smart as you think you are". That's usually the argument an idiot makes when he's speaking to a doctor. Interestingly enough, I have 10 years worth of expensive Bible and Religious Education (formal) so I've been through the ringer. It's all a fairy tale. The great wall of china couldn't fill the void between the old and new testament with how different they are. I checked out after that decade and never looked back.

    Christianity/the bible has the least consistent message you could possible have as a religion. Jesus, by all intents and purposes, has the best message. But the Old T has some seriously ****ed up parts. Those can't just be "forgotten" in the message either. Not when you're holding up the words in your hand while singing hymns and kissing snakes

    This guy has a 5 part breaking down the Anti-Christ and explaining end time prophecies from scripture. He isn't a money grabbing pastor or "prophet", he is the real deal. His studies are really good.

    What? I would venture to bet your 10 years of Biblical education amounted to the same 12 years of Biblical education I received which was simply 1st grade through 12th at a private Christian school. That hardly qualifies you as an expert on matters of theology and interpreting Biblical scripture. Those years make for a good basis of understanding and a lot of Biblical knowledge to memory, but it takes study and personal experience as an adult as well to retain that grasp and understanding of God. You can say the Bible is vastly different from one testament to the other, but I can just as easily say that the contrast between the two makes complete sense and is explained clearly. You were educated on Biblical studies for 10 years while you were in school and then you gave up on your juvenile understanding of it and walked away, and that is supposed to convince us that you know what you are talking about?

    What parts of the Old Testament are seriously F’d up as you say? All actions taken by god have a purpose.
    Before you flap your mouth off saying I’m pushing a religion I have ZERO religious backgrounds besides reading the Bible and my own personal experience... I was like you once; hate filled towards religion and god due to having such naivety. You truly sound like someone forced to learn so you threw a tantrum like a child and chose to misinterpret everything from a cynical view. Things happen for a purpose and when you actually grasp that you can move past your anger.

    Edit: I’d go so far to say my faith is beyond un-shakeable; I’ve had many STE’s that would break someone of lesser mind plasticity. Those experiences have blessed me with clarity and truth.
    But as I said I understand where the anger and hate towards religion comes as my wife had that towards Catholicism.

    you're either ignorant or lying. either way you're wrong.

    from genesis to revelation the message is consistent: people screwed up creation, are tainted with sin, love sin, because of that we are worthy of only punishment for that sin, and the only hope we have is the Son of God incarnate promised messiah who lived, died, and rose again to redeem every single soul who repents and trusts Him.

    repent and believe the gospel or get what you deserve. wrath. forever.

    End times such as Martin Luther calling the Catholic Church the beast of Revelation?

    Don’t know if I should ask in this thread or start a new one. But as someone who was raised in a catholic family and went through first communion, confirmation, CCD and was an alter server for a few years I don’t believe in god and have several questions I would like to see if people can answer.

    You never know what can happen; never hurts to ask. Remember there’s no dumb questions only dumb answers.

    I would just ask it in here since everyone is addressing this thread already.

    Yeah Im an idiot because I called your ass out for thinking he’s the smartest man on the forum. If you was half as smart as you proclaim yourself to be then you understand that the Bible is composed of multiple interpretations of what the prophets thought and seen. It is meant as a guide for you to live and if you think that God is a fairy tale because of all this “education” you got then Im glad that I am not you.


    God laid it out that those who deny his existence will be sent to lake of fire for all of eternity. You think that this “education” that you are always on here proclaiming to have makes you someone, but the facts are you are nobody special and have proven time and again to be an arrogant jackass that needs to reread the 10 commandments and learn that Pride is listed on there.


    I was no privy to an “education”, Ive had to sit down and read myself to learn what God wants me to be. Unlike you and the ones like you who believe they are all knowing. I readily admit I dont know jack and everything that I say is from my interpretation of my readings. When my time comes I will stand before St. Peter and proclaim my undoubting faith to God and kneel as he commands. You call it a fairy tale, I call it the truth as spoken to his people.


    Just remember one thing: when the lights go out and judgement is served upon you. You had a chance to repent and accept him in your heart, but you turned your back for “science”

    Ask away, as long as it’s kept civil and doesn’t turn into a Christianity bashing thread like some of these all knowing “educated” trolls have contributed to.
