We're approaching the end times, I'd say at most we'll have another 150 years or so.  Probably much much less, but the bible says no man knows when that day cometh, even Jesus didn't know on earth when the world would end, he said only his father knew.

The antichrist will deceive the world, so how can anybody know who he is?  I have no idea, although if you'll look up Van Impe ministries online, you'll meet Jack Van IMpe, who's a very respected 'doomsday' preacher, who claims and points out all the signs leading to the end of the world being soon.  

Latter Day Saints view on it is basically, just do the best you can right now, and if you're living right, you have nothing to fear when the world ends.  We have a lot of temple work we're tryna get done before then, though, so we're trying to build a ton more temples.

^^ Not everyone in here is gonna go by what tha Bible says... Including me. I really doubt all that Revalations shit is gonna happen. Only way I see us gettin knocked off tha earth is if some big ass Meteor hits it.. like tha Dinosaurs.

 I'm not in a religion.. I've never been babtised or none of that shit... I do Believe in ONE GOD though, and I just dont understand why he'd make the Earth, just to destroy it at tha end. That just doesn't make sense to me. Trauma might be able to explain why God would do that from a Mormon prospective but I aint Mormon... So I dont buy it all.



I like this topic though.. I'm alwayz interested in shit like this, along with Ghosts, Aliens, Afterlife... It's all pretty interesting shit to think about but I'd rather focus on what's going on right now.

It's crazy for me to say all that too. Cuz even though I'm not part of any religion, I am influenced alot by Cristianity. I believe in Jesus and all that.. just dont believe in any specific religion. I'ma kinda lost when it comes to religion.. but at tha same time, I aint looking for religion cuz I'm comfortable where I am right now. I'm sure whenever it's time for me, when I find that religion, I'll know it.


Oh yeah.. well it's crazy for me to say that because, being influenced by Cristianity, I'm not sure if it's wrong for me to think that way. I mean, If that does ever happen, will I be guilty of doubting God? You know what I mean? Will I be punished for not knowing better? I don't know, I dont really care though, cuz I'm a cool person, If that day ever does come, and I dont go to Heaven, That's gonna suck. But I dont plan on lettin that fear change my views on things.

Every religion explains this, just study ANY religion, and it'll tell you exactly why god would 'let' that happen.  Just hit somebody religious up, and ask them that quesiton, they'll explain it all for ya.  Peace~

Here's something I saw on a documentary concerning to end of the world (here's what I can remember):

Our galaxy, the Milky Way, and the closest galaxy to us, Andromeda are slowly moving toward each other a about 4000 Kilometers per year (due to the Supermassive black holes at the centre of each galaxy). When they do eventually collide (not for about 3 billion years)  the Earth would either:

1. Be thrown into deep space and become too cold to support life

2. Be pulled into one of the black holes.

Thank u for bringin a real perspective to this shit lol. Itz about time sumbody did!  ;D

But for real, i agree with a few people on here. Humans pretty much have no way of knowing when the end of the world is. the Bible for damn sure doesnt know since a BOOK wouldnt have the key to the future of the universe in it lol. And when we say the end of the world, we should be saying "the end of Human life". The Earth isnt going anywhere in my eyes. Its survived far worse then anything we could EVER do to it. Colliding with a meteor, or another solar system...well...who knows what would happen in that case. But i dont think the Earth would be completely destoyed...only destroyed to the level that WE could not survive. Regardless, NONE of us will see the end of the world. None of our grandchildren, great grandchildren, or great great great grandchildren will. And i would honestly avoid anybody who thinks they can tell u when tha end of tha world is coming...cus they prolly about to shoot up a McDonalds soon or sumthin lol.

na man, the bible does hold the key to the future, i can tell by reading your stuff you are not christian. christians belive that the world we are living in now will end when jesus comes back and rounds up all his children in the rapture. those who do not belive, will be stuck here for the worst happeings ever to occur on earth. it will be run by the anaichrist aka the devil himself. and everyone will evntually die and jesus again will come back and it will be heaven on earth. and tone, you may not belive the way i do, but WE all will see the end of the world. we are basically in the end times. the bible predicted all the stuff that is occuring at this time. there are some profeicies left to be fullfilled, and when they are, jesus will return................

See... that doesn't make sense to me....


First off... God is supposed to be all knowing. He knows what's gonna happen in tha future... Why would he create us all,just to destroy us in the end? That doesn't make sense.


God gave us the gift of Self Determination... that means we make our own decisions... but tha way you're explaining shit.. if we dont do a certain thing, we're gonna burn in hell with tha anti-christ.


It goes all tha way back to Adam and Eve. God put them in tha Garden of Eden and told them not to eat that forbidden fruit.. but disobeyed him and ate it. He punished them.. you know tha story. But What I dont get is why put them there in tha first place? If he is all knowing, he should have known they were gonna eat tha fruit,no matter what he told them to do.


Now, God created all of us. There's millions of people in tha universe. To get to heaven, we are expected to obey tha religion and obide by it to get there. Only maybe 1 in a million of us meet tha qualifications to get to heaven.

It's like, making 100 wooden figures, You know only 1 of those figures is gonna be useful. So why create tha other 99 figures in tha first place? It doesn't make sense.

I'm rambling on but still. God should have forseen all of his people becoming sinners. He should have forseen himself having to destroy us at tha end. Why would he make us? What kind of God is that? If that wasn't his intension.. then he made a Mistake... I dont know about you, but my God dont make mistakes.

Nah, you have 100% perfectly, sane valid, STRONG arguments against religion.  Before I joined up (lol) I had the same feelings, don't ever feel bad or like you're wrong or anything for thinking the way you do.

Tommorow, when I have more time, I'll type up my church's answers to all that stuff, but it might not be enough for you to change your mind or nothin, but I'll at least share with ya.  Peace~

the bible only holds the key to the future u hope will happen. u hope that u have followed enough of the "rules" to make it to the "good side" in the end. If u have, u hope that the end will actually be what is in the bible. Dont speak so much as if yur beliefs are truths. They are beliefs. Just as mine are. What happens in "the end" (assuming there is one) is not known, or even possible to be known by any person on Earth. Therefore...whatever we THINK will happen, is ONLY a theory and not a fact. The Bible doesnt make something a fact. If i had a bunch of fortune cookies here and i BELIEVED what they all said, that doesnt make it fact. And for sure wouldnt make it fact in someone elses eyes who didnt believe as i did.

If that wasn't his intension.. then he made a Mistake... I dont know about you, but my God dont make mistakes.


O.K., here's my 'short version', LOL.

God was chillin' in the preexistance, before the world or anything existed.  He had tons of children he had created, but we were all spirits.  Two of them were Jesus, and Satan.  After a while, God came to the conclusion, that we all were forced to love him, and weren't free, we were forced, because we knew 100% that he was true, and we knew his power; so we couldn't hate him, or choose to not live with him, because we knew the consequences; he was all powerful, so how can you 'not' like someone all powerful? God wanted us, as his children, to grow, and learn, and we could no longer learn under his authoritarian rule... because we weren't free.  

So, he presents this problem, and says that he will send us away (if we choose), and where we're going, we'll be away from him... but we'll have the choice to follow him, or not.  So, we'll be free, and therefore, able to grow.  As a reward, he'll give us a physical body for the trip.  In the end, we'll come back to him, and if we choose him on this place, and had a good heart, we would be rewarded with a higher glory; we would progress, and have a body that was perfect, forever.  If we had a bad heart, we would be cast away from his presence forever.

There was a problem, though, God is fair to the infinite power, and it wouldn't be fair to let a person who was less than perfect, back into his kingdom, since everything there was perfect and clean.  He knew on earth, away from his presence, we would sin without END, so, he had to think of a way for us to be forgiven for our sins, and be punished for them, in all fairness, because God is a fair God.  Therefore, he would have to have a physical son, half god, half human, to come to earth, and be punished for all mankinds sins.  The reason he had to be his physical son is because no other would be strong enough to be punished infinitely, at 1 time, for everyone's sins, that would ever be committed.

Satan came to him, and said "I will do it, father, and not 1 soul will be lost.  I will save all, and when I return, my glory shall be great".....  

Jesus came to him, and said "I will do it, father, and many souls will be lost.  When I return, the glory shall be yours"

So, God choose Jesus's plan, to come to earth, and be sacrificed for the world's sins, thereby paying our debt of sin, so we may all be allowed back into heaven.

1/3rd of heaven decided to make the trip to earth.  All of us did.  Another third stayed behind in heaven, content to not grow any greater, and yet another third choose to follow Satan's plan, and now reside with him, in the absence of our heavenly Father.  

So, everyone on earth, has choose to make this trip.  Adam/Eve, Etc. was all in the plan from the beginning, the lord knew Satan would tempt them, etc. Because he is all knowing.  Without Adam's Transgression, birth would be impossible, since at the time, death wasn't on the earth, and they would have lived forever.

So, when you die, you'll return back to your heavenly father; Jesus will tell him everything you've done, because He was punished for all of it! He knows exactly what you've done in your life, and what you've felt, and he knows your heart.  While god could just peer down and know exactly what you've done, Jesus has a true testimony of what you've done, because he's FELT it, and been punished for it.  Jesus will plead your case to the father, and most will probably be saved.

There are three distinct kingdoms of heaven, each with levels.  The highest is the Celestial; It is where you basically can go on to grow as great as god is now, eventually (although that will never happen, as God by then will have progressed to be even greater).  There is also the Telestial, and Terrestial kingdoms, the least of these is so great that if we could catch 1 glimse of it, we would all kill ourselves to get back to that beauty, and away from the evil of the world.  

God is very lenient, even those who don't know him, and have sinned a lot will be saved, and sent to glory in heaven.  Even people that commit suicide make it into heaven, into one of the lesser kindgoms!  Why? Because we're all his children, he loves us very much, it would break his heart to punish us eternally, it would really take a lot for us to be cast into hell.  

I'll put it this way: The only 2 people that we KNOW are in hell, are Satan and Cain.  They're a pretty safe bet.  The rest of the people you really can't tell, because we on earth aren't to judge, we don't know god's plan, and basically, it's none of our business.  Hitler, Napoleon, Jeffrey Dahmer, who knows, you know? I'm just glad that isn't my decision, to decide anyone's eternal fate.

So, in other words, for those that choose to follow god's word to the end (Ghandi, Moses, Muhammad, Jesus, Siddartha Guatama, Abraham, Confucious, etc.) the Celestial Kingdom awaits.  For those of us who aren't quite as strong to live our life perfectly (lol) will go onto maybe the Telestial kingdom, and those of us who never went to church, didn't really believe, but had good hearts regardless might go on to the Terrestial Kingdom, or something... all 3 are heaven! What's the big dissapointment, you know? LOL I mean, heaven is greater than we can even imagine on earth, and some of the WORST of us will make it there, because of the infinite atonement of christ! That's why Christ deserves to be regarded as 'the man', because he is.  He really, really did a huge favor for the world, he saved billions of people... without his atonement, nobody would make it back to heaven, nobody has lived a perfectly righteous life.  Even the great Moses sinned.  So just do your best, and we'll all see each other in Heaven, I don't see any Cain's on this board.  Peace~

O.K., here's my 'short version', LOL.

God was chillin' in the preexistance, before the world or anything existed.  He had tons of children he had created, but we were all spirits.  Two of them were Jesus, and Satan.  After a while, God came to the conclusion, that we all were forced to love him, and weren't free, we were forced, because we knew 100% that he was true, and we knew his power; so we couldn't hate him, or choose to not live with him, because we knew the consequences; he was all powerful, so how can you 'not' like someone all powerful? God wanted us, as his children, to grow, and learn, and we could no longer learn under his authoritarian rule... because we weren't free.  

So, he presents this problem, and says that he will send us away (if we choose), and where we're going, we'll be away from him... but we'll have the choice to follow him, or not.  So, we'll be free, and therefore, able to grow.  As a reward, he'll give us a physical body for the trip.  In the end, we'll come back to him, and if we choose him on this place, and had a good heart, we would be rewarded with a higher glory; we would progress, and have a body that was perfect, forever.  If we had a bad heart, we would be cast away from his presence forever.

There was a problem, though, God is fair to the infinite power, and it wouldn't be fair to let a person who was less than perfect, back into his kingdom, since everything there was perfect and clean.  He knew on earth, away from his presence, we would sin without END, so, he had to think of a way for us to be forgiven for our sins, and be punished for them, in all fairness, because God is a fair God.  Therefore, he would have to have a physical son, half god, half human, to come to earth, and be punished for all mankinds sins.  The reason he had to be his physical son is because no other would be strong enough to be punished infinitely, at 1 time, for everyone's sins, that would ever be committed.

Satan came to him, and said "I will do it, father, and not 1 soul will be lost.  I will save all, and when I return, my glory shall be great".....  

Jesus came to him, and said "I will do it, father, and many souls will be lost.  When I return, the glory shall be yours"

So, God choose Jesus's plan, to come to earth, and be sacrificed for the world's sins, thereby paying our debt of sin, so we may all be allowed back into heaven.

1/3rd of heaven decided to make the trip to earth.  All of us did.  Another third stayed behind in heaven, content to not grow any greater, and yet another third choose to follow Satan's plan, and now reside with him, in the absence of our heavenly Father.
