Eschatology

Your thoughts on the end times book in the bible in which it says the end of the world will be initiated by a period in which people are not allowed to go out and work, this system of which being upheld by businessmen and pharmacists. I’m not a Christian, but wondering about your thoughts?

Rubbish.

[@1206587,Tyr77] not if you read it in the original koine Greek, I assume you know Ancient Greek?

[@321829,pianoplayingsteve] Pick any language, religious prophecy is trash.
pianoplayingsteve · 26-30, M
[@1206587,Tyr77] so it was just a coincidence? Like this too?

Never in my life have I read or been told anything like this.

[@441353,nonsensiclesnail] ‘The music of harpists and musicians, pipers and trumpeters, will never be heard in you again. No worker of any trade will ever be found in you again. The sound of a millstone will never be heard in you again. The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s important people. By pharmakeia all the nations were led astray’

Revelation 18 - that’s not the start of the end. I can see why one might try to correlate this with present times, but it’s a grasping at straws effort.

I am a Christian and I don't believe any of that.
pianoplayingsteve · 26-30, M
[@11378,exexec] you know ancient koine Greek? Enough to read revelation?
exexec · 61-69, C
[@321829,pianoplayingsteve] I said I know enough to get by. I have access to a number of translations from the Greek, and I trust the true Greek linguists a lot more than my purely amateur translation.

[@11378,exexec] so you don’t, thanks for the clarification

The Bible is a load of crap. Wake up! Get over it!
pianoplayingsteve · 26-30, M
[@45528,hunkalove] interesting outlook
pianoplayingsteve · 26-30, M
[@45528,hunkalove] could I get your thoughts on why the EU spent a fortune modelling a huge building after a building from the fantasy book? Ensuring they don’t complete the part that was traditionally presented as not being finished in the fantasy book? And then the company that represents them then using the most famous depiction of the fantasy building for their magazine? As well as using the symbol of the fantasy people?
