Re: Great Tribulation

cslewislover: Thanks for the links. I must say that my family has lived such a life of priveledge that we will be much weaker than those who are used to enduring suffering in other parts of the world. I am not saying that I am rich by any means....certainly not by America's past standard, but as an ...

Re: Great Tribulation

cslewislover: No offence taken. I agree that suffering is the greatest fear, but I am not sure that is what the Lord wants of us. I thought he suffered and died so we wouldn't have to. You are also right in that there is little to do to prepare. I guess I can only hope for a swift death if it is all...

Re: Great Tribulation

Wow, Zebulon. Lots of good info. I guess it just doesn't really help to conjecture. There are so many possible scenarios.

Re: Great Tribulation

Thanks cslewislover. I think that good arguements exist on all sides of the tribulation matter. Due to recent world wide events, I have been reminded that the end is inevitable (if not now then eventually). I guess that given my recent concerns over global events, I wanted to try to prepare myself f...

Re: Great Tribulation

Jac3510: I don't doubt what you say, but in the parts of my life where I have mostly obeyed God, I have had blessings rather than pursecution, because I have found that sin = pain here on earth, as well as in heaven. God has some pretty good rules to live by. I better pray that this continues to be ...

Re: Great Tribulation

Well if JCSx2 is correct, I better either
a. pray that I am worthy to escape (yeah right)
b. Get my suicide pills ready
c. Suffer along with my family

HMMM: What to choose? Its almost as if I am being asked to suffer for my salvation? Am I wrong?

Re: Great Tribulation

I know that no one has written on the thread for a while, but I have been worrying about the Great Tribulation a lot lately. It seems possible that the recent ecomomic events could lead to a currency free global economy. Therefore, if I must receive the mark to avoid watching my children starve, or ...

birds before land animals

Is it possible that dinosaurs were birds? Perhaps dinosaurs always had microscopic feathers that eventually evolved by growing larger to accommodate colder conditions. After all, many scientists try to make a direct lineage between the two. Thats my shot in the dark.... :?: Then again, crawly land c...

christian politics

I think it is pretty safe to say that Jesus was neither a Democrat or a Republican. I also find it so interesting why so many Christians defend nearly ALL of George W. Bush's actions. Is it simply because he says he is a christian and is against abortion? Is it possible that a person who is against ...
