My original goal: Religious intolerance, governance by Religion and its role in End of Days theories but too much input makes me leave it to you!
This morning I was lying in bed listening to the idiot Presidential hopefuls on the right talk about how important Religion is to them and how it would influence their Presidency. Knowing how important it is to the current liar in chief I am sickened.
Seeing what perverted Christianity has done to our America and knowing a separation of church and state is absolutely necessary and Bush has proven it, I was disgusted to hear Thompson cater to the Religious wrong I mean right and sickeningly say the first thing he would do upon entering the White House would be to kneel down and pray. I am sickened, as a little kid I learned to keep my mouth shut on the street and I learned in Church that you keep your beliefs to yourself. You lead by example. If I remember correctly Christ taught that you live by example, you don't brag about your Religion.
Then with perverted Religion on the other side of this still developing world war scenario I was listening to the updates on events in Pakistan being credited to Muslim extremists and that the hundreds killed and wounded at Bhutto's rally was followed up last night by more killings against tolerance and equality.
I remembered how on another site I contributed to there were some right wing fanatics who said the End of days was coming and that they were ready was I? I am ready for anything but I have children and Grandchildren I would like to see enjoy a nice life though thanks to Bush I do not see that nor do I see them enjoying what we did. I now believe that growing up in the 50s and 60s we saw the best America has to offer. think about what being an American got you? It's overwhelming, the difference.
Anyway, I started thinking about this prevalent Religious extremism and wondered what role that played in these End of Days Theories. I started to research them and this one hit me. First, you must stand on the rock of Christianity as you see every damn Politician doing! Then, "About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up, who will turn their attention to the prophecies, in the midst of much clamor and opposition." - Sir Isaac Newton
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. Matthew 24:7
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 21:25-26
We are about to enter a time like no other time, a time that no man has ever seen, a time like no other time in the history of the world. This time was foretold thousands of years in advance by the ancient prophets of the Bible, a time of unbelievable destruction and unfathomable devastation. It will be a difficult and downright perilous time, we are about to enter the END TIMES...
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. Timothy 3:1-5
The more one knows about what the Bible says about the "End Times," and the more one stays informed on what is presently going on in this world, the more one realizes that we are being plunged into a period of time which the Bible says more than it does about any other period in human history. Read more With 1,980, ooo theories I thought if you were curious you could check out Other prophesies Anyway, I have to believe that Bush is as stupid as he looks and sounds but that he is purposely trying to fulfill the Prophesy. I have always thought that Ahmadinejad on his end was doing the same thing. Now that I know Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, has resigned from his post, state-run news agency IRNA quoted a government spokesman as saying on Saturday.
Larijani's position as secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council gave him the responsibility of representing his country in talks with the international community concerning Iran's controversial nuclear program. Although Larijani held a hard line view on the nuclear standoff between Iran and the West, analysts say he was a more moderate figure than President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. That frees Ahmadinejad to be even more provocative in the drive for war that is increasingly stacked in his favor.
Then I hear that Iran is capable of firing 11,000 rockets into enemy bases within the first minute after any possible attack, state-run television quoted a top Revolutionary Guards Corps commander as saying Saturday. Gen. Mahmoud Chaharbaghi, the missile commander of the Guards, said Iran has identified all enemy positions and was prepared to respond in less than a minute to any possible attack.
"Enemy bases and positions have been identified. ... The Guards ground force will fire 11,000 rockets into identified enemy positions within the first minute of any aggression against the Iranian territory," the television quoted Chaharbaghi as saying. Chaharbaghi did not specifically identify the bases or the enemy and did not refer to arch foes Israel or the United States by name. But the U.S. has 40,000 troops on various U.S. bases in other Persian Gulf countries and 20,000 in Mideast waters. Another 160,000 U.S. troops are in neighboring Iraq and about 25,000 are in another one of Iran's neighbors, Afghanistan.
Iran's semiofficial Fars news agency also quoted Chaharbaghi as saying that Iran's radar-avoiding rockets cover the entire Persian Gulf and the entire Iran-Iraq border. Please read on
Anyway you look at it I have to believe these are steps towards war and that announcing the missiles is a mere provocation by an increasingly emboldened Ahmadinejad. Knowing the fragility of the planet and the horror of today's weapons I have to believe that there is a concerted effort to bring about the end of Days! What are your thoughts?
