Thanks for replying. I see a few others replied as well.
But all of you need to think bigger. Much bigger.
It is for the elect. A set aside remnant who won't be deceived. Some will argue, that the elect can be deceived but they are wrong. Always remember, that the last days are leading up to a huge wedding, that's about to take place and every single person has been invited, but a few of those people are chosen to specifically be there. It's not that these people are chosen because they are loved more, but because they understand the light, that illumes the path to the wedding. Though they can't be snatched from his hands, times will be terrible for them too, and it's for their sake that these last days will be cut short.
The abomination that causes desolation takes on a whole new meaning to the elect.

#1 Why do you believe that there are separate Lords of Right and Wrong? How I mean that is, IF you believe that "God" is the ultimate being and that it is him, and him alone, that creates all things thereby Judges all things, then why do you believe that a "Devil" or "Satan" is able to gain power over people and to even appose the creator himself thereby trying to bring a different outcome than that which God self would want? By the way "satan" means adversary. Even Peter was called Satan by Jesus, so I would say it is a title and not a single entity, but I would still like to hear why you believe.
#2 If you didn't come out of the womb with a bible and you can't take one with you when you die, why would you believe that it is the final authority on how to conduct your life? I'm not saying it and every other holy book is not beneficial, I am just curious as to why it would be the ultimate "Word" and finality in your moral evaluation of life and others?
