He said it doesn't mean it's the end. Upset, no. I just find it pathetic that you have to speak to someone else that way when you don't agree with their beliefs. There are more effective ways to get your point across. He wasn't rude or nasty in his comments so curious as to why you feel the need to be so aggressive back.

Preaching? Really?

Why are you angry? Why do you feel the need to be nasty towards anyone here? Does it feel good?

I like these sub forums not political and mostly fun to read

No, this isn't the end. I'm not sure this qualifies as a plague either because none of the plagues in the Bible came with certificates of authenticity. Makes it hard to tell if this is a real plague or a knockoff made in China. Oh wait....

And before people of faith jump in, I do believe that a man named Jesus lived and that many of his teachings are likely real. Frankly most of these teachings are simply good advice for humans in general but I don't believe he is the son of God etc. All I know is I live as a good person, being kind to others and treating people with respect (unless they prove to not deserve it!) and when my time is I'll go with a clear conscience.
Miracles did happen and they do happen even today. Mostly happen in the countries/tribes were people did not hear about God and they need a miracle to see that the word of God is real. I know a story a guy told when he was in Soviet Union when it still existed. He had on his heart that he has to leave on a missionary trip. They were poor, he was married and had few kids and he ended up going on the missionary. And later on the family didn't have enough food they were going low on money because the husband was the one working only. And one day the door bell rings and when they opened the door there was a man standing with bread and other products. He said that he had a dream and he seen the address and the needs of the family and he decided to go there and bring them food. For me this is a miracle. God makes miracles even now, maybe there not as big as Jesus used to do but small ones still happen.
And where will you go with a clean conscience? Not talking about you, but if a person didn't repent his sins and doesn't believe in Jesus Christ as the savior and didn't come to the cross, what's the point of his life? 60 years 70, 100 years but what about the eternal life? You can life a perfect life before the people, they can all talk good about you, but if you knew Jesus and didn't submit your life to him, then all is useless.

I absolutely do believe that we reaching the return of Jesus. Now I have absolutely zero clue when that will be. But there is enough "End of Days" things happening that should cause everyone to at the least, pray and consult with a higher power...

God works in his ways and for his glory. Sometimes we don't understand it. There are no guarantees to a Christians earthly life that is will be saved, not suffer, not have hard times or go through life without loss. There could and may be a time where the suffering of a Christian will be used to turn your life towards Jesus. I hope and pray that happens for you. Your profession already shows your compassion and regardless of your stance on Christian faith I appreciate what you do. God bless you and I hope you stay safe.

Really true, we can't always understand God's plans.

Good fortune and bad happen to people everyday, it's no miracle. If you're looking for good you will see it has nothing to do with god. Just like when you buy a car you notice others having that car. Seek and yea shall find.

Check out all the religio's who insisted on congregating, even after the virus was found to multiply in such groups.
Korea, Lynchville VA (Jerry Falwell's college), the bunch of preachers being charged after this last Sunday....

This is only one example of why some prefer science over ancient creation myths.

But, it is considered uncouth to discuss religion among polite people. That's why we ask them to self-segregate into the discussion group listed above.

My dad is a minister....but he shut down services weeks ago. Some of the people didn't like it, but he said that God gives you the wisdom to make decisions in situations like these..... and a lot times that wisdom is just plain common sense.

While I appreciate your conviction and faith it is not something I believe in. And frankly I don't believe in eternal life/after life either so when I said "when I go" I simply meant when I die and not when I "go to heaven" or any other afterlife.

I've stayed out of this thread, but I think those that know me on here know I'm a "bible thumper", born again Christian.

I'm not surprised at some of the hostility coming from VisualEcho and others though, and I'm somewhat surprised that those who are Christians here seem taken aback by it.

Remember John 15:17-19 which says "This is My command to you: Love one another. If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first. If you were of the world, it would love you as its own. Instead, the world hates you, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."

Expect that the world will be hostile to what we believe. And when they aren't, its a nice surprise. But here's the key - verse 17 - love one another. Still. In spite of a hostile response. Turn the other cheek. Yeah, it sucks. Yeah it hurts our pride and we want to respond with the same vitriol. But that isn't what we are called to do.

It is cases like these that technology shines. We've moved to online broadcasts, which while not the same, is still great and better than not meeting. Churches where possible should use this technology. Those that can't, maybe split into small groups.

Looking back through history there have been virus's that were far worse and more deadly, this one is actually very minor compared to some. Another reason to be educated on what has happened in the past and get ready for the future.

My father was raised Irish Catholic and mom is English Protestant.....we weren't sent to church although went on occasion.

What was always impressed on us was the Golden Rule.....simple words to live by regardless of a pandemic or any other game changer....and for what it's worth it works pretty good during the normal day to day life.

So, what about the billions of people who have chosen faith through other religions?

On a humorous note, Southpark taught us which religion was the correct "choice".
