IF ARMAGEDDON IS NOT FABRICATED IT IS AN EVENT WE CAN EXPECT BECAUSE THE BOOK OF REVELATION IS TRUE. The Ideas Expressed In The Book Of Revelation Torment Some People. Individuals who have come to know the truth are not tormented by what is written in the book of Revelation.
Its supposed prophesies of "end times" and "Armageddon" are not good for modern society. Christianity is supposed to change and improve. Why don't Christians do the right thing and improve their religion? Independent scientists, the pope, and others confirm that the book of Revelation was a hoax.
Christianity is not a corporation run by a chief executive. Yet you say Christianity is supposed to change and improve. So what do you think should improve?
The message of true Christianity is for everybody to love their neighbor as they would like to be loved themselves. The message is not “if you do not do as we say, we will chop your head off”.
You ask: "Why don’t Christians do the right thing and improve their religion?"
So you do not agree that it is the right thing to love your neighbor as yourself. Am I to assume you would rather torture, murder people and subjugate women as sex slaves, instead, especially Christians, because they do not do what you want to do and bow down according to your dictates?
As for improving Christians’ religion, do you understand what religion really means? Or are you like the many people who mistake religion for culture or astrology or wishful thinking?
Religion, that is, true religion, is the quest for the truth.
You claim independent scientists confirm that the book of Revelation was a hoax. Obviously, you have no sources, but even if you did, you might do well to ask them to explain why the UPC barcodes have the number 666 on everyone of them, so nobody can buy and sell manufactured goods without that number, just as it states would happen in the Book of Revelation—which, by the way, was written nearly two thousand years ago.
He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads; and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name.Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six (666). (Revelation 13:16–18)
The writing is on the wall. Either you are making such claims regarding the book of Revelation being a hoax out of ignorance or you are uncomfortable with the truth—maybe because you have an issue with prophecy coming to pass. In which case, it is apparent that you find comfort in denigrating what you do not want to accept.
If you were to say such things about Hinduism or Islam, you would be censored. Christians have nothing to fear, therefore they permit freedom of speech. Indeed, those who have the truth have nothing to fear at all. The ones who hate the truth promote falsehood; then later on they are afraid of being found out.
Science and religion have much in common. True science acknowledges the truth that Creation testifies to its Creator. True science is true religion. False religion makes up an assumption and then asserts the assumption as fact, which is what happens with the theory of evolution that is promulgated by secular bigots (something that ex-atheist Antony Flew identified Richard Dawkins as being). False religion is just like those false scientists who assert dogma as fact rather than acknowledge the truth.
Now the truth about the book of Revelation is that symbolism is used to instruct people, who truly want to know, what is to come. Those who are wise seek to understand the rest of the Bible so that they can understand the book of Revelation; for the book of Revelation is more accurate than people realize. For example, the number on all the UPC barcodes is evidence of this accuracy.
As for the Pope, the book of Revelation identifies a particular harlot that sits on seven hills and holds to the Babylonian mythology that is designed to mislead people. Babylonian mythology contains ideas such as eternal salvation being obtainable through the mother of god, the queen of heaven or a virgin who gave birth to a child. As it happens, many people from the day that the book of Revelation was circulated have identified Rome as the city that sits on seven hills and, for some reason, the allegorical city of Sodom, even though the crucifixion did not literally take place at the Vatican. This is not to mention the passage in chapter seventeen of Revelation (below) that refers to martyrs being cited as what is recorded in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs. Therefore, one can easily understand why any Pope, if not all the Popes, would say that the book of Revelation is nonsense—that is, if what you say is true.
And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. (Revelation 11:8)
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominationsand the impurities of her fornication; and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth’s abominations.” And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her I marveled greatly. But the angel said to me, “Why marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is to ascend from the bottomless pit and go to perdition; and the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will marvel to behold the beast, because it was and is not and is to come. This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated .(Revelation 17:1–9)
Why would you want to abolish a book that warns of things to come? Rather than being detrimental to people, surely advanced warning of what is to come would provide an advantage. Maybe your claims are the hoax in respect to the book of Revelation.
