My attitude towards Bible Prophecy is something along the lines of “big deal.” There are psychics other than Christians all over the world who
have successfully predicted things. I myself have had a few interesting dreams one type always involve people I know being in cars (when they exit my
life) or disappearing (when they’re death is imminent) (even at times when they’re death has been sudden).
Of course when it comes to extremely gifted psychics the problem is always identifying which ones are cranks. But hay; the military was able to use
them under the Soviet Union by subjecting them to various tests. Trouble is I hardly think serving the Soviet Military (in whatever way) is the
most holy of acts;
at most it’s quite neutral.
It occurred to me that if someone was writing a new religion it might pay to include some psychic prophecies especially if whoever came up with them
was quite good, and even more so if these prophecies were already included in previous beliefs (the later may or may not be the case but could be
given other ancient beliefs borrowed by the Bible).
Once you’ve got a prophecy it can be used for any purpose you want. For example a nun might have an accurate vision of the future, and I might read
or learn of it later. I might think to myself “what if I used this prophecy to cause people to follow Satan?”
Once a prophecy has been written down on paper there is little to stop this abuse.
For all we know we might be the bad ones in the end time prophecies (not the heroes). I for one think the state of Israel has a lot more in common
with a Satanic rather than Divine nation (not saying its ether but I certainly think it’s got more in common.
For example most of the 3.5% Palestine’s population (the Zionists) who received 50% of the land in 1948 have never paid for it, so don’t seem to
have any concept of adverse possession even after 2000 years).
I suppose one might argue that the God(s) would prevent the abuse of prophecy by hastening peoples deaths, or perhaps even (by predicting the prophecy
would be abused) they would screw it up in the first place (and accordingly?).
However it will only take a few examples of prophecy been used for evil to discredit that notion of protection.
Which really does mean…
The Bible contains prophecy; so what?
Do you agree?
I personally am still a believer in the afterlife because of cases of extreme evidence from e.g. things like Ghosts (like being recorded on
CCTV in high secure buildings).
However I am increasingly convinced that Christianity (along with probably Judaism and Islam) are false religions (in my view more so than many
