Biblical times?

Anyone get the feeling that we are living through something of biblical proportions?

I admit, I certainly do...

Try not to assign "meaning" to everything in life. It'll drive you crazy.

How would we know, since all Biblical writings are fiction?

You will know one day, if you can't realize when you have a choice as of today. But we do live really close to the the end. This could all be a wake up call for the Christianity to realize the we are close and God is coming soon. Because most of the Christian's are to comfortable today, and many slipped away. Hopefully people will realize this, because our society became so bad and sinful, it's really sad. But all I know I am happy and I am waiting for God's coming, so I can be with him.

Viruses have been around for more than a billion years (yep, sounds crazy but earth is more than 5000 years old) and have been killing animals including humans.

Humans evolve just like viruses. We'll also realize that we are all in the same boat no matter where on earth we live. We'll come out of this stronger.

Sorry - please move to appropriate forum.
God is certainly moving the shells around.

People idolized sports - we have none
People idolized musicians - no concerts
People idolize actors and movies - that's on hold
People idolize money - that's leaving at a rapid rate

I urge you all that think the Bible is made up, fake, fiction or whatever to take a closer look. Not because I think the time is near but because once you find the grace and love of Jesus your life will forever be changed.

In the end everyone will bow before him regardless of where your heart is today. Unfortunately it will be too late.

God bless you all!

lmao

its hard to reason with people who believe in a flying spaghetti monster. Just like its hard to reason with schizophrenics in my clinic who think the government is spying on them.

but for real. if religion helps calm your anxiety and gets you through the day and keeps you from drinking... by all means keep with it. Some of us don't need a fairy tale to get through lifes ups and downs.

It's people like you that scare the shit out of me.

No disrespect, please keep believing what you wish, I'd never try to turn you away from it, it's just so wow to me.

Well, it's a reasonable assumption that most of them aren't what we'd call factual by today's standards. It's unlikely that all of the writings are untrue, just all the important bits that Christian's hang on for dear life.

So your original statement was over the top. Tell me which writings are untrue? Being a Christian, I'd love to know which parts are untrue.

We are worshiping online, we had that in place before the pandemic as an alternative. Small group is gathering online as well. Bible study at home with the family.

If you don't have faith, fine. Denigrating my religion is not fine though.
