It's All About The Party!

Many Christian Conservatives are 'party people' because they've read the Book of Revelation/Apocalypse - not like those "Left Behind" books and movies! Those have most of it wrong (as a matter of fact just about all of Christianity has got a couple of important things way wrong!) Let me try to summarize in a few words what the apocalypse message is, and why many American voters believe (and vote) as they do. I'm also going to tell you some things that most, if not all, Christians don't know. The Book of apocalypse prophecies a world wide genocide worse than any other, which lasts "ten days". Before then, government becomes much more of a global thing, and it is able to bring about a sort of loose world peace. About this time a (popular and charismatic) person (from a specific political office - I may post about what office at a later time) becomes head of the world governing. But there are environmental and economic troubles which lead to shortage. So some old disputes and battle skirmishes flare back up. When the authorities dismantle the Wailing Wall in Israel (Matthew 24:1,2 and Dan 12:11) about (or almost?) three and a half years later, there becomes enacted a global I.D. system (involving those notorious numbers, 666 - Rev 13:17,18). No one will be able to buy or sell without having a global I.D., but thirty-five days into it will begin mass genocide and exterminations which will last "ten days". (The numbers of days are explained in Daniel 12, verses 11 and 12, if you like a riddle..) Why do Christians believe one political power or party is more likely to bring about these things? Because they believe the x-terminations have already begun! (And are quite legal and accepted, even looked upon as something good.) This is why to some, it's all about the party.

Where is the False Profit in all of this, flowerchilde? I'm a Catholic and, while I'm no scholar, I do recall that a False Profit will emerge first who will be revered by the entire world. It is he who will demand that the people wear the mark...what you refer to as the global Id system. It is only after this that the Beast will appear as a world leader.

Now I am a Christian but I do not vote because of what is in the book of Revelation. My view is this what will happen will happen. My vote for this individual or not to vote for this individual will not bring about the end of days any fast or slow. I vote based on who will bring America to the end of it's days!

Originally I forgot to say the bible says the reason for environmental woes is due to the increasing lawlessness in people's souls.. rev 12:14,15,16 - The woman is a nation, the serpent of course is the beguiler.. and the flood was a serious proliferation which changed almost all societies. Also, you know.. fruitful promised land as opposed to desert. This is true for us all collectively as well as individually.. P.S, Gewgew, you vote on your determination of who will destroy the nation fastest.. exactly! And I vote concerning what will destroy the nation fastest.. Thanks for responding..

Every type of Christian religion interprets the Book of Revelations the way it suits them best. Who knows what kind of dreams and visions John of Patma had when he wrote it. Or did he? were those dreams and visions passed on orally before they were written down as most gospels are. In any case, if it was written by the same John who was a diciple of Jesus he must have been a very old man. Were the visions caused by a physical disorder? Also the inclusion of the book of revelations in the bible was a human decision in an early century when a council decided which books to include and which books to leave out of the present day bible. So for instance the gospel of St. Thomas and the Gospel of Mary Magdalen are not included in the bible that most denominations use. There are branches of Christianity such as the Greek Orthodox who include books which are left out in other denominations. So I think one should be cautious to interpret these prophesies.
