I guess the Christendom span thru 10+ centuries wouldn't be possible if the persecutions from the early 3 centuries were preserved in the Middle
Or why didn't the Christendom surrender to the Caliphate and choose to become mass martyrs?
This is absurd isn't it?
The spread of Christianity through the planet in the era of discovery and later colonization was possible only because of the better lifestyle, higher
quality industrial goods (as guns and ships) and higher culture (so to speak). But not because of offered martyrdom in this life to obtain the next
Today we are infront of a similar choice. We have to continue the life in real terms. We have to reject the attempts of a mass martyrdom in any ideas,
that some people apparently want us to be thrown into, in the name of real or fake words of Virgin Mary.
Not only to speak against abortions, while making the normal life impossible. Even in the so called developed West.
But to choose the path that will lead to the survival of the human race. Be it underground cities prepared for that purpose, be it Mars secret
colonies, be it another farther planet. Let face the truth in 2012! We don't have much time - less than 97 days left. We don't need preacher or
prophet for that either. We want to live! We want our children to live even better lives than us! We are UNWILLING to sacrifice them in any mass
martyrdom promised by any apparition or by any doomsday preacher!
I will have to look for a better explanation of Christianity that promises life. And I will do that once saved in the secure locations. I will not be
shy to choose another explanation than today's doom-death expectation covered with holy phrases. Enough of that
I am sure there will be a better explanation of the core of Christianity, such as the meaning of Jesus Christ's ONLY Sacrifice, ONE AND FOR ALL, and
not the need to repeat it in our daily lives to the point of making them a continuous suffering via various ways for most part of it. (even without
the doom predictions). I am sure there are better ways that offer MORE AND REAL LOVE OF GOD as intended.
Where are the Books of the Gospel and Bible? I am talking about the hidden books. We know well what we have today are books written in 3rd century,
more or less. There weren't Bibles packed as ours in 1-2 centuries. What we have is a Roman-Greek New Testament. I don't say it is not true. But the
doubt of hidden texts is quite reasonable. As for ex. Enoch, 2 Esdras, which are known well to exist and even included in some Bibles. How about other
texts never published? I will not guess what they might contain. But I guess that the experiment of ...how many centuries, is wrong. Its fruit is
wrong. And you will know them by their fruits. No amount of penance or sacrifice (as they want us to do without having the historical blame for it!)
will ever fix it. It has to start all over again, from the true fount. Perhaps someone preserved it. If not on planet Earth, then may be the
extraterrestrials have preserved the real words of Lord Jesus with their superb tech that existed hundreds of thousands years before the humans come
on earth. Whatever it is, it will be better than what we have today. And we will be able to live more happily till the real End Times when they
finally come. Because today we don;t have major elements of them - such as a restored Jerusalem temple, or the spread of Gospel throughout the
Universe. Or Cosmos, in Mark 16 in Greek. We have been lied thru centuries, and they continue to lie us today under various apparitions, true but
changed, or outright falsity. Or protestant preachers who see the antichrist everywhere without the above signs.
