He did not throw poo at people and if he lived like a monkey that would have greatly influenced this thread but perhaps you ment that in a different way. I am just having a hard time with the comparison but i understand the rest of your post. I have to tell you that you are special just as all are. We would all die without material objects or some great knowledge and there is a balance that should be maintained.

Yeshua (aka Jesus) lived like a monkey. If its good enough for him, why not us, are we special? Its the intent of our desires that should make us mindful (greed, pride, selfishness), not so much the material object itself.
But we moving away from purpose of this thread.

you can choose to live in poverty but no one really likes being homeless nowadays. again original sin is something that shouldn't be believed. you make a strawman full of greed, pride and selfishness. not everyone desires that.

Something to mention on the 1/3 references there in Revelation. There is another one in the book of Zechariah that should be mentioned as well.
7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
The book of Zechariah is full of end time prophesies. And many of them seem to be referencing the same events as Revelation. A few to consider.
Zechariah 3-8 and 9. Also Zechariah 4 and 6. These prophesies touch on who are the Branches. The Witnesses of Revelation 11.
Zechariah 5. It's the whore of Babylon.
Zechariah 14. Battle of Armageddon and it's aftermath.
Thought you would want to know.
And something to consider on the Fatima prophesies. In Daniel 11 verses 5 through 9 there is a prophecy about how the kingdoms of the north and south make a treaty and then the south breaks it and attacks the north. Also it states that this is an end time event in verse 6. So I would postulate this. Is verses 7 and 8 referring to an end time attack on Rome?
Something to think about.
