Revelation, the last book in the New Testament, is filled with bizarre, violent and terrifying images. Its origins are unclear and its content is
controversial. Some say it is the work of St John but many others believe he could not have been the author. But whoever wrote it, described
apocalyptic visions of plagues, famines, wars, devils, wild beasts and rivers of blood. It is so strange and complex that scholars down the centuries
have continually reinterpreted its message and meaning.
Today, though, a growing number of American evangelical Christians reckon they have cracked the code. These End Timers believe that every weird word
of Revelation predicts real events. Like a Hollywood sci fi movie they say that any time now the world will end. And when it does, true believers in
Christ will be whisked up to heaven in an event called The Rapture while non-believers are left behind on earth to face famine, war, terror and
destruction as the forces of good and evil fight to the bitter end.
This fails before even starting the show. The argument that it presents is based on writtings that have already been put on paper. Not to mention
that you can also have interpretation issues. But what I am getting at is, it is very easy to 'validate' predictions once they have happened.
Since this book has been read by more humans than any other book, one can never tell if the PTB at one time did not try and fassion the outcome of
humanity to represent such a thing... to me the coptic appocolyspe of Peter is more of a predictions come true since the document was discovered 2000
years after its writting and things have come to pass as was written there... now I think that many that frequent the site understand that what is
presented through religions is on a different level than what is out there.. there are many levels to existance and know that First Light is above and
beyond all of them. Yes First Light is above good and evil.
Interesting OP none the less and I look forward to having time to see all of the episodes. (though work is very slow today)
