I'm not a christian…so what? I live life and if Jesus’ father blessed me with this gift, then I will thank IT face to face (or soul to soul?) in
heaven. (Or I might be meeting Satan in HELL!
I can't say for a fact if Jesus actually lived, but for this thread I will assume he did and that he was who he said he was.
I know that Christianity requires faith, and I can't change that.
Y2k wasn't terrible but we knew it was coming.
But christianity has faith behind it.
I don't think 2012 is special for us, no apocalypse, no enlightenment due to aliens. Please don’t post anything like “They do exist, and here
are some facts,” I will claim neutrality. They don’t matter to me right now.
This is a quote from James Akin I found on www.catholic.com in a column written around the time of Y2k. I don't believe in Catholicism so I'll let
James tell you about it. I’ve heard the U.N. alien meeting theory.....revealing ufos in 2012, that'd be really fun, or it'd be really bad.
The first thing you must do when investigating God’s prophetic plan is to select the right resources. If you want to know the upcoming phases of the
moon, you could go to an almanac. But if you want to know how the final drama of human history is going to play out, you’ve got only one source:
I agree, and James sounds like he knows his religion. But he should put some sources down.......here’s where I heard this idea first. These words
were spoken by Jesus. (Some translations of these words have been accused of changing some spelling or being made up. Lets assume he was real, did
say this, and was talking about the apocalypse. Honestly, I have no clue who James Akin is. I’m not familiar with his ideas because I wanted an
unbiased opinion. I’m not sure if I expected this though…
So don’t obsess about any Native American calendars. Don’t worry about whether the moon is in the seventh house or whether Jupiter is aligning
with Mars. Ignore the deliberately vague astrological verses of Nostradamus. Reject what trance channelers and UFO "contactees" have said. Dispense
with it all. Stick to God’s word.
(You can say what you want about his opinion. I’m still on the fence.)
Mark 13:32 (KJV) — But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. – Jesus
I can think of two points of view concerning the Mayan calendar stopping on Dec. 21, 2012. This is what I would do on the 22nd of December.
1. I stay up all night, waiting on the 22nd day of December and thank God for letting me live. I would grab my bible, go to church, and worship the
good lord. When I arrived, I couldn’t be let in because it was packed full.
2. I can picture the pope blessing the human race via a live feed. Everyone near a T.V. watches as he thanks the lord for saving us, people of all
races cheer and jump for joy. The pope says something like this……… “People, we have survived the apocalypse” and the crowd goes wild.
3.)While the news reporters scramble for a story. Bibles sell out, along with everything Christ related in stores. Millions of people convert,
Christian’s will be deemed enlightened, holy, some may even say they’re we’ve evolved spiritually.
4.)Even though it is the most accurate calendar we have, the whole world will start seeing Mayan culture as old news, an outdated group of primitive
people. This is what media will do.
Look back through time, this isn't new. Y2k? panic? 911?
This prophecy could start a global crusade. I love life, but christians can't have everything one way, faith and the sin are used to generate fear.
Who do I think came up with this plan? Nobody comes to my mind.
I think we did, not christians but the human race itself. What are others thoughts, good logic? of none at all?
