AIM conversation on religion.
« on: January 19, 2008, 12:04:35 am »
My cousin wanted to talk with me about religion, and it brought on a long conversation.

JEEZUZKRYSTE: http://www.the-end.com/prophesied_end_time_ronald_weinland.pdf
JEEZUZKRYSTE: read that... it's very long
spike91784: I will tomorrow.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: Ok
spike91784: I' going to research it.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: My good friend Mark was telling me about the world ending in 2012, but those books say 2008.
spike91784: no one knows when it will happen.
spike91784: No one,
spike91784: So any guess is a wrong one.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: Ronald Weinland says that 2008 will mark the beginning of the final events that will thrust the world into the great tribulation (last three and one-half years of the end-time), which will usher in World War III, the death of billions, and on the last day of this great tribulation, the return of Jesus Christ.
spike91784: Okay. What if that is true?
spike91784: God's time is completely different than our.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: 2008-God's Final Witness reveals the Seven Thunders of the Book of Revelation, which the apostle John was not allowed to record! It also gives more specific end-time prophecies that will sharply increase during the next year and one-half when the final tribulation of this world strikes. That destructive power will quickly cripple world governments and destroy the world economy over a six-month period. The year 2008 is prophesied as pivotal for the end-time.


JEEZUZKRYSTE: this is what I'm wondering about
JEEZUZKRYSTE: how did he get this info, if John was unable to?
spike91784: Because it's lies.
spike91784: There will always be false witnesses and prophets. That is what you have to careful about.
spike91784: There will be numerous anti-christs before the real one.
spike91784: God's word is the Bible.
spike91784: If God withheld information from us in that book than he is a liar.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: I haven't fully read the bible, nor do I have time to. Well, I may have the time, but I don't have the interest.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: I think people do this because they truly believe that they are prophets.
spike91784: that is true.
spike91784: And some of it is The devil's work.
spike91784: Devil has power, too you know.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: I know this, but it's either people who truly think they are, or people who want to scare others.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: In this case, I got a little frightened
spike91784: It's a bit of both.
spike91784: Why do you think there are so many killers or scarey movies?
spike91784: Because it's a power thing.
spike91784: If you can make people scared you hold power over them through their fears. they're giving in to what they know is real and they lose.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: http://www.fstdt.com/fundies/top100.aspx?archive=1
spike91784: See. This is why you should read the Bible.
spike91784: Because if you're going to form opinions of bits and pieces of things you've read online here and there, it's be good to back them up with truth,
spike91784: I don't read my Bible very often, but I d know what I've read.
spike91784: I do know that I am a Christian.
spike91784: And these days everyone has warped it into being something more convenient for their lifestyles.
spike91784: There are so many different branches of Christianity.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: I don't really pay much attention to it.
spike91784: Maybe you should.
spike91784: I don't want to force you into being something specific. That's something you have to find on your own.
spike91784: I've coe to find that Southern baptist is just not for me
spike91784: Sorry nana.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: heh
spike91784: I believe the Bible is God breathed and I believe all that is in it. There are different ways to interpret the Bible.
spike91784: Christians today make it impossible for nonbeliever to want to believe in God because they're so judgemental and whatnot.
spike91784: Everyone is a sinner. Sin is all the same. Just because you're doing something wrong doesn't damn you to hell.
spike91784: God knows your heart and that's what it all comes down to.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: Well, many Christians believe that one sin will damn you to hell.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: Religion brings worry.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: which is the exact opposite of it's purpose
JEEZUZKRYSTE: religion is for self control
spike91784: Religion does not bring worry.
spike91784: It takes it away.
spike91784: God is already ahead of you.
spike91784: It's in God's hands.
JEEZUZKRYSTE: Religion brings chaos, one believes their's is better than yours... and things get started.
spike91784: Ok.
spike91784: This is my argument for that.
spike91784: If you have a religion you have to fully believ in it.
spike91784: Because if you don't then what is the point to even believe in it. It's then just a lie.

Woohoo! More talk of end-time prophecy! I always get a kick out of eschatology, speculating on what great doom may or may not await us. But I agree with your cousin -- this dude's a loon. And if Mr. Weiland isn't a loon, it's all okay; ZeaLitY and his trusty revolvers will protect the Compendiumites from whatever steps out of the dimensional portals that connect Earth to Hell in the end times.

So, let's party like it's 1999! :P

I cant agree more. Let's party like the apocalypse is tomorrow, or tonight, or whatever.
