    Jesus was a teacher. He taught love peace and enlightenment. Jesus was in all ways a Buddha. As high priestess of the craft I have studied his teachings. I live in harmony with nature. Jesus had good teachings. Messages of hope and love of one's fellow man. Belief is what you make it. The message I poorly tried to state is this, One must focus on living not death.
    I fail to see why a person would dwell on the end of the world.
    All things die. I do not dwell on death. As for my feelings on the catholic church. I hear many times of abuse of children.
    This crime is the worse. Children are innocent. Recently my 16 year old twins both began to seriously date. Both know about sex. Both understand what the possibility's are. But for my son at 11 it would be a violation.
    I do not like the catholic church for its reliance on visual aides. like praying to a statue or the rosary.
    I feel dead in a catholic church. there is no connection with the divine.
    But to each faith is a wonderful thing.
    Blessed be
    Rikki

    I know I'm not the guy that should be speaking in this thread, I've proven this I think, But, If not most people, I feel like a lot of people wonder about the end of time, I could be wrong. I'm not stating that they literally do. But, With so many predictions about the end, I think a lot of people wonder about it.

    My grandmother once told me a story about when she was young, Halley's Comet was coming through. At that time she was a young child, She remembered everyone locally thinking surely this was a sign of the end of the world.

    It may not be something happy. But I think people wonder about the end of time with a kind of excitement that is akin to that feeling people get when they watch horror movies or something.

    but that is related to the UFO issue, and frankly its something that needs to be said in the modern ETH-centric world
    but supporting any religion is not a good thing to do in the web

    Could it not be said in that same breath, That God is an extraterrestrial? there are loopholes for everything under the sun.

    How is a being not born of this earth, not an alien? But I fully get where people are coming from on this. Ultimately, It comes down to, It's a subject some people detest, Which is Fine. I don't enjoy having to talk about it to people who don't want to hear it. My thing is, I'ts not my choice to not uphold the belief.

    That's probably the key issue I try to press with this. To some people, God isn't a mythical creature like a unicorn. To some people, they wake up and pray to this being that they fully believe has absolute governance over their lives and souls, To those that believe, It's not something they can just turn off or on.

    The only solution which is fair is to ban religious talk altogether. " Which is fair" Or allow "All"l religious talk. Which is Fair. But to choose when it's okay and when it's not. is simply confusing for everyone. I'm not opposed to banning religious talk here. It's this strange partly tolerant middle ground that is confusing for me. If religious talk was banned here, I wouldn't have to defend it to anyone, I could just say, Hey, That's not allowed here. and be fine with that. But as long as it is allowed, I can't ignore it, And then tell people I'm not a Christian.

    And yet I understand why banning it would be considered a harsh decision. If people could just be more tolerant toward others with different spiritual beliefs well that would be the perfect solution, It should either be Not okay to talk about it here Or perfectly okay, The middle ground is confusing to many.

    Banning any religious debate would be a backward step, we fought a world war against a satanic Nazi regime that had banned much, this is what totalitarian states like North Korea do. You would never be able to hear the other side of the debate, God forbid this would ever happen, but sadly there are those who would wish this, I hope they never succeed.

    The problem is as a person who does believe in God, I have to defend it publicly. This isn't the stone age, everyone has heard the message, It's no longer about spreading the word to people who haven't heard it. some people meet the message with intolerance, I don't want to deny what I believe in, And I don't want to battle over it defending it to people that simply don't want it.

    Even as a Christian. The subject is problematic, I am not lacking for intellect, No man may fool me, Mathew 6:6

    But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

    I don't want to fight and argue the Bible with people who are my friends. They know the message. This place isn't a pit stop for me. This is where I am when I am online. I must be able to live in unison with all these people here. Where ever two or more are gathered, So shall he be there. Why can God Not be a Private issue we practice in privacy? I have no issues with that logic. People see us and judge us. and all the while they judge us, We must judge them back, And spread the word. Mark 6:11 Says, And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.

    It never says anywhere in the bible that we have to fight other people Or keep trying to deliver a message they have outspokenly denied. Only insane people fight a battle that's already been decided. That's why scriptures such as Matthew 6:6 and Mark 6:11 exist. I don't want to fight the community I fit into, there is nothing wrong with this community. They have made their wishes known that this isn't a topic they enjoy.

    I can be a Christian. And simply not speak about it online. but as I see it, Only someone who is looking for a fight or some sort of played out ethical debate would continue to speak about these topics when the clear consensus is that nobody wants it. To ban speaking about Religion here is not a Slight against God, It's the most logical and peaceful thing for everyone. as many have stated, This is not really a church.

    The topic of this forum section is "End Times" (and Conspiracies) which could cross into religiously themed ending type discussions but there are no forum sections here devoted to religious discussions in the same way there are no forum sections here devoted to politics, for good and quite obvious reasons...

    That being said we are getting way off topic here, this thread discussion started by John is concerning our imminent demise from a religious perspective...Debating anything else but is derailing this thread...

    In fairness, I still fully believe the world will end by a war that we caused, Maybe not all life on earth. But civilization may fall anyway. yup, The only life left will be me and Emma Watson,

    She'd have to give me a shot then, I'd be the last guy on earth.

    It's a win-win situation.

    For everyone.

    My thoughts on the true end times.

    I believe someday, We will progress with Technology to such a state that We will eventually find the existence of God. I don't believe proving for a fact that God is Real would change very much, Many people would still want to deny God or even challenge God,

    I feel in the future, A time of incredible arrogance will occur a time when people have facts and proof of Gods existence, But still, deny him, I think a time will come, When with Science and Technology and knowledge, People will believe they can defeat God, Be it for reasons of pride or simply wanting to be free from God, But I believe eventually at some point, People will declare War upon God. So they will invent a weapon, let us just name it GodKiller since it doesn't exist. We know that if God exists it must be in some alternate reality or dimension, This weapon will be meant to destroy him because it's designed to destroy that entire dimension of space but I believe it will destroy all or most life on earth.

    That may sound a little sci-fi but it lines up with revelations and the predicted end times.

    That first part leads to deeper philosophical discussion, I'd like to cover it sometime, But this isn't the thread for that though.

    I remember people reading the Late Great Planet Earth - they became convinced that the rapture would come by the end of 1988. Dates and times are always risky. Perhaps it's better not to focus on the end, but on the simpler admonition to seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly.

    To be fair when i posted the end times thread, obviously as i am not God i don't know the many varied beliefs of members and so i posted it because it may be news to some. We are know very secular in the west so there are many kids who have never heard about Jesus & the God of the bible. To those who have & reject it as truth, that is fair enough, but i believe there will be some who have never heard this before and i believe forewarned is forearmed. At Bayside it was said that God would have ended things in 1973, but sufficient numbers of people responded to what they had heard and it was postponed. Remember Abraham at Sodom & Gomorrah where he said to God if you find just 1 just man don't destroy the city & God agrees, but because he finds no just men there he destroys it. I am always grateful to those christians who have sacrificed their lives to Gods service, they are the reason he lets the rest of us live.
    As with all things time will tell, watch out for the prophesies mentioned at the beginning of my thread, i believe they will be fulfilled in the not too distant future.
