Basically, what im trying to do. is gather all the information I can on the bible and Christianity and everyone’s thoughts and beliefs on it. I want to hear from those who are against or simply do not believe and those who DO and WHY YOU DO….any links for information on the origin of the bible, the reason the old testament is rarely mentioned?
This is a theory I did based on a big ((IF)) there's any truth to the Bible.
As far as Bible prophesy goes, the only way for someone to inform a person(such as Daniel) on earth of what is to come, so they can record it and we can read it years later, is if this being(watcher, elder) has seen or has access to information of other planets just like ours who underwent the same transformations.
That's the only logical explanation.
How else would Daniel's informers("angles") have predicted that in the distant future the "Holy People"(I believe this means any people who use religion to control the masses.) will lose their power? And he said their power will be "FINALLY broken", as in the truth will be accessible everywhere and to everyone. "Many will go here and there to increase knowledge." and, as typical, "None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand."
Can the power still be wielded? Yes it can, but the tool used isn't a religion, it's technology that will be able to control people. And the closer we get to unity, the closer we get to complete dictatorship by whoever sits at the top of that pyramid.
The many different religions are a distraction technique to slow this process.
Another thing, Jesus was a significant marker in history and his message, the ones he told in parables so his disciples wouldn't mess it up, held huge clues to this whole puzzle. Like the The Parable of the Tenants. ""A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time...." He came back to "collect", but what is meant by "fruit" I wonder. What has become very abundant here? "Be fruitful and multiply...". There are over 6 billion people on earth. Fuel, other resources...who knows. The only thing that refuses to factor in my mind is, why? Why the mystery and secrecy? To keep things running on schedule is all I keep getting.
6) The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.
7) Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."
Why would they do that unless they were keeping a schedule?
