Looks like Odin kept his promise.
 
Odin has a much better super hero costume too.
 
#link to Jesus promising this??
 
I thought Jesus was saving all the wicked people not getting rid of them.
 
Well, I can promise to get rid of all the Snangobops and neither you nor I can see any of those around. So what? What's your point? This is like the bathroom graffiti: "God is dead - Nietzsche / Nietzsche is dead - God" We know Nietzsche is dead but that doesn't prove the existence of God.
 
+Ryan Takuski, there are still as many evil people in the world today as there was when Jesus was supposedly around. Everyday people get murdered for petty causes, and thanks to modern technology it's even easier. So if Jesus came back right now in 2012, I think he would need to do the same thing again.
 
What more proof do we need for a creator? Do people really sit down and come to the conclusion that we all evolved from non-living matter? It scientifically impossible and it goes against the fundamental laws of Physics.
 
LOL all of you butthurt people, shutup its supposed to be funny xD. Your ruining it!
 
it's not very funny if it's fundamentally inaccurate.
 
+Cory Lewis OK, shut the fuck up, enjoy it for what it is, and go bag on something that is WORTH the shit your giving it...
 
no i don't so go to hell! I might have seen a frost troll though. He went into meh bathroom. I was dying for a peeeeee until i went to the downstairs toilet!!! (it was in skyrim so don't worry about any frost trolls invading yeh toilet!) B-)
 
what do you call an iceberg? It's giant and it's ice...
 
I think the comments are far funnier (in an oddly depressing fashion) than the original post. Lighten up, buzz-kills, it's a freakin poster!
 
i dont think the end is really coming
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren :except Odin is alive as well, the prophecy says he will die at Ragnarok, the end of the world, to the wolf Fenris. Seeing as how Earth isn't under attack from fire giants yet, I'm sure the All-Father is alive right now as well.
 
Jesus was humble, loving, and most of all Tolerant. Remember, Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Look to your own house, my friend.

Besides, if I had to bet my life on who had the better (and safer) sense of humor, I'd go with the hippy dude, preaching love and light in a robe, any day. ;-)

Don't need to argue, so I'm out. All the best.
 
you spelled right wrong, dumbass.
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren What if I believe that God is playing a trick on us. What if God wants us to use our brains. He didn't leave more evidence of Christianity than of other religions, and he spread the religions out so that you're almost assured to be of the religion of the nation you're in (or parents if your parents are a religious minority).

Then, God waits. He sees who realizes that he didn't leave any evidence of himself. Those who think there's no God go to heaven. Those who are sucked into the regional cults around the world go to Hell.

In that scenario, you're going to Hell. So much for Pascal's Wager favoring Christians...
 
Jesus is the way the truth and the life! I'm with Corne, if we live expecting no eternal existence then what we do here has little value accept for our own selves. But if we live expecting the gift of eternal life through a faith in Jesus, then He comes in and sets up camp in our hearts and instead of us doing all the work, He does the work through us. The end result of a life with Christ as the center is a fulfilling life of giving of yourself. More people get blessed than just one and it leaves an eternal footprint on the hearts of men.
 
Umm...it's way easier to get rid of ice giants.
 
+Kelline Pickett So if you didn't think that God existed, then you would stop caring about everyone around you and only do selfish things? Good to know.
 
Clearly you have never tried to get rid of an Ice Giant before... ITS HARD!
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren Third option: We spend our eternity in Valhalla and you spend yours in a nasty place.

Your argument is only good for atheists.

(Of course once you accept polytheism your will understand that it does not matter which GOD you believe in. It matters if you are good person or not.)
 
Taken out of context friend. Twisting of one's words is not fair play.
 
what does not believing in god have to do with not caring for anyone? You IGNORANT FUCK. I do believe in god but I also believe in people having their own opinion and I respect that. The things you people say are pure stupidity.
 
Am I missing something here? Why are we trying to get rid of ice giants? Is this the same thing as an abominable snowman?
 
There was no such thing as religion during earlier times. We create religion.
 
Wow. Two posts trending on What's Hot this week! I am an a roll.
 
I sometimes hope for the rapture to come, then the GOP would disappear in a heartbeat.
 
The devil? Throughout history Christians as well as other religions would kill anyone who wasn't like them, and you have the nerve to say the devil does bad things? no, PEOPLE do bad things..they just need something to blame it on.
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren If I were a God that was intent on tricking you, I'd definitely say that I wasn't tricking you and that anyone who tried to lead you astray from me was trying to trick you.

If I were a God that wanted to trick you, that's exactly what I'd do. Just sayin'.
 
Jesus promised that? I don´t think so
 
"I'mma pray for these niggas" lol
 
+Kelline Pickett Your fatality is the believe that there is only one GOD.

But the picture from the original post is all about another GOD.


I am not an atheist. I just not worship Jehovah and his Son Jesus. I worship other Gods — and Goddesses for that matter.

Which means I do expect eternal existence — but a different one from yours.
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren Pascal's wager? Really? Perhaps you should look for Smith's wager. It is applicable to all regardless of one's position on the existence of a god, and doesn't suffer from the achingly fallacious reasoning and false dichotomy Pascal's wager does.
 
Corne, we can't lead people to repentance with confrontation. We are supposed to model the behavior of Jesus Christ and that's the end of our job. The rest is up to the Holy Spirit to convict and draw them. The Bible says, "No man comes except he be drawn of the Holy Ghost."
 
Oh PLEASE - DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!! The sarcastic point being made here is that "Jesus" didn't come thru - and Odin DID. That's it. Period. A funny statement...
 
If Jesus was God in the flesh, that what did you learn from him. What he said was, and I suppose no one paid attention to him, that God never changed his commandments, man did in order to satisfy his selfishness. He said that the way the truth and the light is found from within. You know, can you picture what Jesus must had been like during his days. And when he died, can we picture or even understand his message. I feel that the message was that he realized that his creation becomes distorted and that no matter how many times as God he wipes out the Earth, eventually, his creation becomes, distorted, mislead, confused and wicked whereby, God himself came to Earth in the human flesh to be able to experience life as man and understand why as man we fail. God realizes that the prince of peace is with us and so powerful that he is a thorn on his side, to destroy all that is good. You know, when the dead sea scrolls were found, there was no such book of Matthew, this was created by the Council of Nicia and by the order of Constantine.
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren I don't care if you are offended. You don't have a right to be offended. Your beliefs are demonstrably false and hypocritical, and have caused untold harm to humanity since its inception. And I cannot return to god, for I never came from him in the first place.
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren I don't hate Jehovah. I just don't worship him. That state is called indifference not hate.

But I guess this is something you won't be able to understand.
 
+Corné Jansen van Vuren All the stuff about love and kindness doesn't matter. Kim Jong Il said the same thing. Do you believe him? Do you believe countries whose names have "People's Democratic Republic" in the name? The fact is, there's just as much of a chance that God is lying to you than there is that he's telling the truth. And if you read the Bible, you'll see how loving he was when he drowned the whole world and killed off entire cultures. ...If you believe that stuff.

"People from earth will never understand some things." ...But you do, completely. You have absolute knowledge that you're right. Funny how you can tell others that they can never understand, but you somehow have all of the answers. Smells like bullshit to me.
 
careful/when you die your not going to meet Odin---
 
Offensive.proud of yourself.eh?
 
offensive if your verry religious, but funny if your not.

Odin also enjoyed human sacrifices, yum! He was known as the Gallows Lord for a reason, mostly because he hung himself and resurrected after 9 days. And, actually, the Frost and Fire giants were around up until the Ragnarok. They combine forces in their battle against the Aesir. Oh, and the world does exist after the Ragnarok, only with the next generation of gods in charge. That concludes today's lecture :P
 
Offensive how? Ideals are subjective. Bottom Line. If you find the expression of other's ideals offensive you should consider the keyword, 'tolerance'.
 
I have read through so many of these posts. Some are amusing, some intelligent, but to many are simply ignorant. Can you guess which ones are ignorant? Those stepping up to sound intelligent by saving their Jesus.

You folks realize that every single religion in the world share similarities that are so striking that they are literally the same stories? Do you all know your stories also originate from Sumer?

And Jesus was a hypocritical. Teaching love and acceptance, but daddy dearest once promoted hatred of those that did not follow him. Where i come from, that is disobedience. If i disobeyed my dad, and promoted the opposite of what he demanded, I was punished. And amusingly, early in the NT Jesus even states that he is not there to re-write, or dissolved the old laws, but to extend upon them and help man understand them....but with contradiction!?
 
+Jason Beineke The Jewish/Christian God also enjoyed a good old sacrifice new...or do most Christians skip over the OT section these days?
 
+mitchie fletcher wow someone broke out the potty mouth there... does that help make a point? The fact is that there is no point... Odin never existed. Jesus never said that. And you need a bar of soap in your mouth.
 
Why do we need some sort of reward in order to be charitable and kind to other human beings? That sounds rather selfish.
 
For all of the Christians on this thread...just curious. Why is it that you can't simply ignore stuff like the originating image? Does it have to do with the hundreds of years of supposed "persecution" you all have supposedly endured? If i got a yes, so help I am will flip. Especially when Christianity is the dominant religion on the whole planet.

Persecuted? That is literally every other single religion around the world for the last 2000 years.
 
Now, how do we really KNOW that Ice giants didn't exist? I like that - and I think maybe they just did, and just to piss everyone off who thinks they know better!
And who the hell are YOU, Norm, to tell ANYONE that they need a reminder - about ANYTHING? A tad bit arrogant, don't you think?
 
thats is good that people love jesus i do some people hate him but i dont
 
ahhhh, amway crap again. That's eren around for a longgggg time...
Get off!
 
Who are you, and how did you end up in my feed?
 
Atheists don't hate any gods. They don't believe they exist. If you hate a god, you are a misotheist.
 
i only believe in the one and only god in the heavens :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
btw, Tris Stock, would you mind telling me where in the bible Jesus said he would get rid of all wicked people?
 
what's the rush?
"Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn." Mt 13:30
 
make sure you put the whole verse(s) on here.
 
This is messed up. I cant believe the amount of people that are alright with this,
 
from the point that everyone is WICKED, no matter how noble that we posed to show, both should deliver mankind from itself and its frozen an evil hearts
 
I can't believe people still seriously believe in god.

Sorry guys but I always think you're just playing around or being wishful...

I see no reason to believe that any gods exist in any sense of the term in this world.
 
New Testament citation needed.
 
wel,l during winter we had ice giants in the Yukon Territory, but they move so slowly that you cannot see it with the bare eye...
 
When and where did Jesus promise to get rid of the evil people?
 
I'm going back to my Temporary Personal Saviour™, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs.
 
I believe in God. Don't believe in organised religion. And i now believe in Odin, because I haven't seen any Ice Giants. :-)
 
shut up i believe in jesus christ my lord and savior
 
Wait. . .when and where did Jesus promise to rid the world of the wicked people??? . . . I am confused. . .But I think that this Odin dude is pretty legit though. .. ;)
 
lol i like it and i dont give a fuk what jesus or god think they are dead for a reason !
 
i want to believe...................
Roger M
 
that is very good
 
Any Christians here actually know what the word Christ means? I'll give you a hint: it's NOT his last name.
 
Any Christians here know what religion Jesus was?
 
Hey, +Corné Jansen van Vuren , look into Ahura Mazda, he made a mark on mankind long before the claims of Jehovah revealing his name to Moses, or even allegedly contacting Abraham. It is said that Jehovah is a "jealous god", why can't other gods exist and Jehovah is saying "NOPE, ONLY ME!"? Perhaps we are judged only by the rules of the pantheon we devote ourselves to? So if we claim devotion to the Judeo-Christian way, we are judged according to the most updated rules of that particular path? And if we don't, well, I'd imagine you could put the other pieces together.
 
Believe what you want, that does not make it true. For those that want to impose restrictions on usage of words, go fuck yourselves! If that offends you, take a flying fuck at yourself!
 
+Bex H. when Mictlantecuhtli rises from the depths, and Huitzilopotchli comes down from the skies to take Ixachilan (the Americas) back from the white man. =)
 
+Marco Antonio Guerrero Jr.
How can there only be one if you can dress him up any way that you want? What if I want god to be more than one true heavenly father?
 
If Jehovah is the only god, then why be jealous? Men made god in their own image and humans are jealous. Moses came down from the mountain and saw the people had made a golden calf to worship and smashed the tablets. Woops! I have to go back and fix the commandments. Disregard this first draft.
 
stupes odin isnt even in the same league as jesus
 
Something on this thread, and all posts like this, I've seen the "patient and loving" Christians use derogatory and flaming comments as much, if not more so than, as those that either turned their backs on or simply don't believe in Jesus or God. The trend I've seen for years is Christians when loosing their persuasion resort to informing how the defiler will burn in hell for "being wrong". A lot of the tikes, they resort to that long before a "heathen" throws out any insults of their own. Telling someone like myself we will burn in hell for not believing is essentially telling that individual to "go to hell".

To use their own statement against them, "He who has not sinned may cast the first stone". In other words, you can not pass judgment until judged yourself. And any GOOD Christian knows they are not judged until they reach the Pearly Gates.
 
God never said when he would
 
One more point. What good is free will if we have no choice but to believe in your God? "Believe in me, or suffer."
 
From +Corné Jansen van Vuren "*I WILL NOT tolerate any respectfulness towards my GOD. I will stand for HIM, as He stood for me when He died on the cross.*"

Why won't you tolerate "respectfulness" towards your god? I would've thought you WANTED him to be respected. Also, I don't imagine Yeshuah(/Jesus) did much standing when he was on the cross.
 
+Eric Schuetz Very well put comment.

Also, our world will end when our sun goes red giant and roasts this wonderful world of ours to something roughly equivalent to a cinder. Anyone else want to 'upgrade' and join me for the show? ;)
 
An attack on the faithful.how original.never seen that before.
 
Although this may be a lighthearted post, consider this: if I claim to exterminate something that didn't exist in the first place, does that mean I had any power to start with?
 
+Joy Braafhart is right, we DO need to look at the god that man didn't make. He's been with us through thick and thin, and even though we may not always thank him, or give him credit when due, he's still there, patiently waiting for us. In the meanwhile he keeps the universe held together, he's sacrificed himself, and even rose from the dead! We need to take the time to remember the god that's been around for MILLIONS of years, long before humans even came out.

So I take this time, to pause, and give thanks. Thank you so much Optimus Prime!
 
In Romans, the Bible says that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," and that "the wages of sin is death." The Bible also says that no man is good and that all of our good works are like filthy rags to God. So essentially, nobody at all deserves to spend eternity with God in Heaven. However, God loves us so much, that He came down to Earth, lived a perfect life, freely gave it as a perfect sacrifice, and rose again to completely cover the sins (past, present, and future) of those who accept His gift. Even after someone becomes a Christian, they are still as much of a sinner as anyone. The difference between a Christian and a non-Christian is that a Christian's sins are continually covered by Christ. I guess my point is that each person should carefully investigate all evidence, especially the Bible, to find out for themselves what they believe, because the Bible is inerrant and can stand for itself.
 
lol it's so much fun to read theists bickering with each other over which fairy tale is supposedly true. What a waste of typing for you people.
 
WHOH!! Just come back to this post to see what's going on. Seems to be a lot of hate out there. Aren't we all supposed to realise that the original post was meant in good faith and humor and that anyone is really dedicated to doing good deeds,then they would unite with all people of any faith to unite against all that is evil? (don't ask me to define what is evil, I'm sure you can all work that out for yourselves.
 
Do you have bibliography on the Jesus "quote"?
 
James Luchte proposes that, for Nietzsche, monotheism leads to atheism when the criteria used to dismiss the other gods is used against itself. But then, Atheism leads back to a kind of politheism he called "post-atheism".

http://homepages.which.net/~panic.brixtonpoetry/zarathustra.htm

This post seems to be in the first step, of pitting the denial of other gods against the One God, so it will impress little us post-Atheist Nietzscheans. All the two of us I know of :-)
 
Jesus is God, for now he is merciful but soon he will return to judge. Repent while there is time and seek God
 
+Joy Braafhart , without looking it up, do you even know your god's name? Hint: It isn't "God" or "Jesus", and it was revealed in the Old Testament.

BONUS: You get brownie points if you, without cheating (ala looking it up) can respond in the appropriate font/script.
 
Psalms 14:1-3, The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked downfrom heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
 
+Tris Stock The Bible is easily the most accurate historical text in existance. It is backed up by over 2500 manuscripts with less than 0.5% variance in vocabulary when they are compared to each other. Furthermore it is the only book that contains fulfilled prophesy (with hundreds of them!). In addition, most passages that are believed to contradict each other are simply taken out of context by those reading it. These are just some of the reasons I believe the Bible to be the inerrant word of God. If you want to ask about any specific passages, please feel free to message me!
 
you also dont see your house being flooded by water ending your and everyone elses life wich GOD promised
 
Nitpicking mode engage: that ain't Odin. Odin sacrificed his right eye in exchange for wisdom at Mimir's Well. He's usually portrayed with his two ravens, Hugin and Munin. Also, it was Tor (or english spelling Thor) that's associated with fighting jötunn (frost giants), according to legend thunder strikes when Tor battle the giants. Lastly, there are supposed to be jötunn left at Ragnarök (the end of the world/final battle) and last I checked the dead aren't coming back to life so it safe to say that there probably still some jötunn around. </nitpicking mode>

Personally I would go with the Asir (the norse pantheon) because they're kinda cooler than Jesus (wielding hammers into battle and the like) and if I got to choose between heaven and Valhalla I'd pick the one where I get mead served by valkyries and a pig that comes back to life after being eaten. (Or I'd get to go to Fólkvangr, I'm cool with that too)
 
+Norm Robichaud Actually, you are allowed to NOT do this. Jesus just talked, he didn't go out and looked for people, those who wanted to listen did, and those who didn't, walked by. He didn't call them out on that, either. You need to also realize that the vast majority of people you talk to in the modern world are familiar with Yeshuah's message in some form or another, we realize the claims of Christianity, we're not unaware of it. The whole thing was to spread the message to people who NEVER HEARD IT, we've heard it plenty, many of us WERE a form of Christian. We were supposed to "never go hungry again" from hearing the word, we've heard it long before you, and we desire (no, wait, scratch that, NEED) more than just the word, or bread, for that matter.

You're allowed to not talk about it, it doesn't diminish your faith to your god. Boasting (including the word) is something that your god has condemned. If you're going to fast, then fast, don't let everyone know you're "doing the right thing, and the others are wrong". Jesus may've "come with a sword", but you aren't born with one. Posting on the internet, getting in people's electronic faces isn't "love" or "helping them". You want to help someone who is LOOKING FOR HELP, so go to the suicide hotline and help people, or go to a shelter, but not the internet.
 
Hate how Christianity fuck up indigenous religions
 
When the world dies you will go along with it if you question the Lord God and his holy son Jesus Chris our saver. Don't question him.
 
Romans 10:13
for “ Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
 
Word of God? Yes jesus was a real person but divine? No. Maybe a great jewish philosopher but not a god or son of one. Also he wasn't born of a virgin because (just like you said with ice giants and Odin) God doesn't exist either.
 
Romans 3:23-24
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;
 
(To the Jesus Jr. commenters) Cool story bro, it's kind of old though, stop telling it.
 
+harry khem there are no indigenous religions, as in purely homegrown varieties. All religions draw from elements from other religions and other peoples. It's an interwoven net of gods and concepts. You could say, though, that you hate that Christianity triumphed over other religions you're more fond of. I'd say then that many of them never really died, and are in fact returning. One of my personal favorites is Asatru
http://www.asatru.org/
Which is precisely Odin cult revivalism.
 
jadian, you clearly haven't read the book of Genesis have you?
Genesis 8:21, ...the Lord said in his heart, I will not again, curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth: neither will I again smite any more every living thing, as I have done.

It says right there that there will be no more world wide floods, the Lord gave us the Rainbow as a covenant to us. Too bad the homosexuals perverted it in their own way.
 
+Norm Robichaud No, she shouldn't stay the course. If she's going to be Christian, at least be an educated Christian, teach the actual name of your god. Again, it isn't "God" (that's what he IS) or "Jesus". Maybe then, the generic overused Christian arguments could hold a little more bearing, if only because it shows that the specific person cares enough to truly know their own religion, rather than just being spoon fed the small amounts at Sunday service or family that's just "sticking to tradition".
 
wel, i dnt knw where i can start from. First of all, am shoked in that non of has mensioned the prince of darkness who is responsible for these confusions. I mean 'LUCIFER'. My dear friends, wether you like it or not,there is only one God en that is Jehovah. Lucifer desired 2 to be like God becoz of the pride he had in his heart when he looked at his beauty and power or perhaps let me say authority given 2 him by God. When he comes on earth after failing to win the war. He plans to fufil his plans by creating multiple religions as the the plan of redemption was stil in the process.........i dnt thnk i can complete my explanation here, to those who may want my explaination you can contact me my email 'mweembamacho@gmail.com'. We need to understand the plan of Redemption or else our minds wil never open. I fear for you guyz.
 
+Macho Mweemba What does a Roman light god have anything to do with Oden and his glorious victories?
 
Jesus, God and Odin may have been important to some people many years ago but they are all irrelevant to me today.

C.Paul Courtney you speak the truth. The word is strong with you and I'm loving it. Please continue preaching to these non-believers. And going out to my fellow believers, the lord will always follow through with what he says so believe in him and he will bless you.
 
Just hang on a little while longer and Jehovah and his son Jesus Christ will remove the Wicked.....Forever!!
 
So, what do your think about this +Jesus H. Christ ? The man has a point about the ice giants

Odin for president!
 
Well folks, this thread has become redundant. They say that if you ignore a pronlem, it wont go away. However, in this case, I am sure "they" would make an exception. It has been entertaining, but the blind foolishlessness of some is to much.

And for the ignorant on this thread. The Bible WAS written by man. Even if by some chance it was the "word of godb, it was still written by man and inherently corrupt.

Man has always been, and always will be driven by his/her baser emotions and desires. How we embrace those emotions and instincts is dependent on ones own will.

Logic is the balance of emotion and will. Through logic will we find enlightenment.
 
Why do Christians, when facing a simple challenge, sound so much like the Taliban? Try discourse and debate before calling down the Fires of Heaven...wait, that would require you to be educated regarding your religion...nevermind.
 
WTF!! U must be really messed up playing about Jesus and God. That just shows the height of disrespect and how stupid someone can get. Simply have a little laugh at the picture and MOVE ON!!! Goshh
 
Did Odin really get rid of the ice giants. I thought ice giants were Greek mythology. In any case, wonderful example of racial memory. I am sure it refers to the receding of the last ice age.
 
+Spencer Sims sure it hints me that different peoples contribute with different and complementary insights in the project of translating into words as best as we can the immense transcendent reality that we perceive. Or were you thinking of something more basic such as "aha, so it's man made and therefore obviously false"? :-)
 
+Anil Das I don't know about Hellenic pantheon too too much, but for sure the Jotun (Ice/Frost Giants) are at least Nordic. Though, if you go by the stories, Odin didn't actually kill all of the Jotun, they'll make their last attempt for power at the end of times, Ragnarok, where damn near everyone'll die. =)
 
So Odin is a better politician than what we have in office now
 
I don't see any evil people, instead I see good people doing evil deeds. They just need someone to help open their eyes.

However, Odin is definitely a Boss.
 
There is only one God & we are all children of Adam & Eve. All prophets were messengers of God. God has no offspring nor was He one. A simple fact to understand is that if God had children they would be eventually fighting over the Sacred Throne making new beings other than humans & destroying & creating many planets at the same time in the act. And for those who believe that humans were made from inorganic matter or evolved from apes tell them to make one from carbon, hydrogen & oxygen or evolve one from the mating of an ape & a human in a laboratory & observe his evolution over a few centuries in that lab. Come'on do it. I challenge them & even now i know they will fail & fail again. Religion is simple to understand if one thinks of it & respects it as a word of God & ofcourse Simple is beautiful. And Dijjal the one-eyed leader of freemasons & nonbelievers & a test for both believers & nonbelievers will eventually come out of his hiding place when ordered by God & Prophet "not son of God" & "not dead,still alive" Jesus Christ will come & kill all nonbelievers including Dijjal with the power ordained to him. Ofcourse that would be the age of spear & sword & byebye to Google+,Facebook etc. After that peace will prevail in this world once more. After Prophet Jesus will die people would start to astray again slowly & even more dangerously than today though they will infact enjoy many more luxuries which we can only think of & then comes the end of the world & start of Day of Judgement. Just at the very end of the world God will arise a special being called 'Daabatul Arz' whose first & last work would be to mark all believers with a white mark & nonbelievers with a black mark. Then as the souls of all believers(the last believers would be like "i know there is one God" & that's it nothing else no prayers) will leave altogether the world will shatter & the universe will reorganize into one unimaginably large open plain & ofcourse the judgement will start. So this is a very short explanation of the truth which the humans eventually have to face bros. So do good, expect less from others so you may not be disappointed, do more for others so you may feel inner joy & satisfaction & think before you speak or act because you have to stand accountable for it one eternal day.
 
Bunch of religious idiots... In the end faith is simply the virtue of not thinking...
 
lol I like it.

I don't remember Jesus ever saying that he would rid the world of evil but its not the first time someone has put words in his mouth. I would like to see all of the "Jesus bashers" practice his most basic teachings and live in harmony with the most obvious natural laws and then comment from their own experience (that goes for "Jesus followers" too).

Jesus is not real. None of the historians at the time have any record of his existence except one of Josephus' notes which Pope Pius forged. And yes, Josephus did live when Jesus was supposedly born (which was not before 0 AD, it was around 4 AD, if not later.)

This faith that people like +Edward Woods glorify that trample on ethics, reason and science without justifying their position.

Now please, educate yourselves so we can create a better society.
 
wait....Jesus never promised to get rid of the evil people, but to help save them, but still funny XD
 
Thanks +Adam Laborde . As predictions go, Ragnarok seems to be pretty good, since another ice age in our future is a near certainty.
 
I wonder what the Runes would foretell about this?
 
We all do dwell in Heaven, right here, everyday...it's just that some of us allowed the wool to be pulled over our eyes, by believing that heaven is someplace else...
 
Good thing because I am wicked lol
 
I thought jesus was going to come back on a white stallion and wielding a flaming sword to pwn humanity?
 
nope dont see any ice giants lol
 
Oh and for those of here saying Jesus would not rid the world of evil. Well if anyone doesn't know let me tell you Dijjal the one-eyed will be made evil by God as a test for humans & Jesus would have to kill him if the believers are to survive. Now don't say that you want to be friends with Dijjal on Google+ because firstly he's not human, secondly there will be no Google+ then

I can't understand one simple thing about this post. Why is Tris Stock trying to make this post funny by adding the religion stuff. Aren't there any other ways for the sane mind to make posts funny?
 
Yeah, I've never seen odin, but i have seen God!
 
And can anyone clarify me who is Odin really?
 
Just as paul Bennett said God made everything
 
Jesus didn't promise to get rid of the wicked. He promised to save you from the evil one if you only believe.
 
I've read of God and Odin in story books and thats where they belong.
 
It's quite amazing that in 2012 there are still adults here who are offended because this post has disrespected their imaginary friend...
 
I find this amusing, especially since Jesus never promised that he was going to get rid of all the wicked people.
 
What i have come to realize is that people reject the possibility of God to justify all the wicked things we do, if there's no higher power then we have nothing to worry. But why risk the Eternal damnation of your soul and reject Jesus Christ as your personal savior?

In my opinion those who are Atheist are to full of pride to humble themselves and ask for forgiveness for the wicked works they have done. Even Anton Lavey (founder of the church of satan) said "Oh my, oh my, what have i done?" on his deathbed. There are many accounts of people visiting heaven and hell, check it out on youtube.

God doesn't need the wicked but he has compassion and mercy for all, it's not a laughing matter... your soul is at stake.
 
Matthew 13:30 is referring to nonbelievers going to Hell, not Jesus destroying all the wicked people.
 
+C. Paul Courtney I have KVJ, NIV and YLT, numerous copies of apocrypha, a book of Mormon, a Quar'an, a Torah and various Hindu, Buddhist and a plethora of other 'religious' tomes. Not to mention scriptural encyclopaedias, compendiums, concordances and catechisms, Christian apologia from Augustine to William Lane Craig and three volumes of 'Systematic Theology' by Charles Hodge. Oh yes, and I do actually read them.

What part of the Word is it you think I am missing, exactly?
 
+Daniel Dryland Just out of curiosity, what if you're wrong? I realize that you believe yourself to be right but just entertain the thought, what if the hindus are right, or the muslims?

Pascal's Wager (what you described) is a false dichotomy since there are more than two options, there's the possibility of no god, the judeo-christan God, the muslim god Allah, Odin, Flying Spagetti Monster and an untold number of other deities that man has worshiped during the ages.

Also regarding the "rejecting" part, I for one have never rejected anything, just not accepted what have not been (and in all probability can not be) proven. I say that this is the one and only life we have, to waste it fearing what might come after is useless. The only thing that matters is what we do here and now and that we might be remembered as decent people. We do not need a god or book to tell us whats right (in fact, some of the things commanded we would reject as immoral if asked of us), we as a species are more than capable to use logic, reason and compassion to determine what is moral.
 
Jesus promised this?! never heard of this, all I new Jesus came to save all of wicked people, I am sure this person doesn't know anything about Jesus! I just think is better to know Jesus first before you say anything about him!
 
You need to get to know Jesus

Proverbs 3:5-8 ESV / 193

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

Ephesians 4:31-32

+Tris Stock That is a prophesy about the end of time.... I don't see the world ending... so not applicable
 
I'd like to believe what Christians tell me is true. I mean, there's a billion of them and they're really sure that what they say is true and that the rest of the world is wrong...

...but there's also a billion Muslims who are equally sure what they say is true and everyone else is wrong...

...to make matters more confusing, a billion Hindus disagree with both of them

I hope you guys don't take offence when I don't autimatically fall into line just because you and your religion say something is true. 
 
+Tris Stock That verse in Matthew is referring to the prophesy of:
Revelation 19:20, And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

And also Revelation 20:10 - And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.
 
+Jonathan Greer People asked where in the bible it said Jesus was going to take away the wicked. I gave them that. It is perfectly applicable.

Besides, in Matthew 16:26 he says, 'Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.' Unless you are suggesting these people are still alive, either the end times have already happened or his prophesy has failed.
 
+Anthony Kelly I for one don't blame you for being hesitant in what to believe. As a Christian, I believe there is real cost to following Christ. It's not just a matter of "Believing." I honestly think the real reason people have an issues with "Christianity" is that ever since Constantine made it a state religion, there have been people claiming the name "Christian" who never actually act on what the Bible teaches and are simply nominal Christians... and I honestly don't think that 100% of those billion "Christians" are really Christians..
 
+Tris Stock I'm not sure what BIble your reading, But Matthew 16:26 says

26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
 
+Tris Stock It was prophesy.... Jesus eluding to the future, later the events of Revelation were revealed to John and he wrote about it... that's really basic.
 
+Jonathan Greer So it is entirely feasible that having foreknowledge of the content of Revelation, as Jesus had already said, John might just have fulfilled the 'prophesy' by writing Revelation in order to fulfil same 'prophesy'. Post hoc rationalisations do not prophesy make, and this is typical of biblical prophesy.
 
+Tris Stock The simple explanation for question about 16:28 is that the chapter and verse system was put into the Bible hundreds of years after it was written. The very next chapter speaks of the transfiguration. Where Christ was transfigured into the likeness of his glory in his coming kingdom. Peter then writes about it in 2 Peter 1:16-18
 
+Tris Stock Since you have wrote the scrpiture first you would know that it was Jesus who was speaking the words in Matthew 13:41. He being the Son of God and the living Word he would know what is to come.
 
+Tris Stock John did not write Revelation to fulfill any prophesy. Jesus was not prophesying about John writing the book. Jesus was prophesying about the same thing that John wrote about. It is simply 2 accounts of the same prophesy. neither fulfill the other
 
+Jonathan Greer Irrelevant. Either the prophesy of the impending onset of the Kingdom of Heaven was realised and we are all too late, or it was not and Jesus' prophesy was false.
 
just cause u cant see them doesnt mean they arent there
 
16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. I wonder how thats going
 
+Tris Stock It absolutely is not irrelevant. And this is not a "either A is true or B is true" situation. The If we are going to debate a thought on the validity of scripture, then let scripture interpret scripture. The answer I provided was sufficient, It is your choice whether to accept it or not, but do not discount it as irrelevant.
 
If people want to believe in something, that is entirely their choice and doesnt affect me one bit. I just think its funny that usually the people without religion are the one who are pompous, arrogant, assholes........that cant return shopping carts to a cart corral
 
+Jonathan Greer If my comment were indeed a false dichotomy, perhaps you could elucidate the other options?
 
+Justin Barrett There are numerous examples of a young earth and intelligent designer. Here are a few examples: NASA stated that the moon is drifting farther apart from us at a rate of 4-5cm/year, with that being said the Earth would have been touching the Moon less than 20 MYA. If the Moon was 1/3rd the distance closer the tides would be increased by 9x the normal rate now, that in turn would flood the planet twice a day.

Also the Planet is slowing down at a rate of 1/1000 of a second per day and every 3 years or so we have a leap second, if the planet was 20 Billion years old then the planet would be spinning way to fast for anything to survive.

Another example before I stop is with the Big Bang theory, when it occurred it created Hydrogen. How did we get over 100 other elements from Hydrogen? Elements can't fuse together naturally past Iron.

You have to keep in mind that there are 6 types of Evolution and the only one of those observable is "Micro-evolution" - The type of evolution that gives us different varieties within the same "kind" or species.

Without Time, Space and Matter nothing will happen.
 
+Tris Stock The decision needs no other option. When the question is based off of false presuppositions due to a misunderstanding of the scripture and isogesis, then the entire question is irrelevant, as you would say. If you read scripture expecting to find contradiction and fallacy, you will find it. People have twisted scripture to say many things throughout the years. I'm not saying that my interpretation is the authoritative interpretation. I just know that it lines up with years of theologians and Christians before me. All I can claim is it is a popular belief that I personally feel resolves the issues. I can say with definiteness that your options and interpretations are decidedly anti-biblical, and thus a false interpretation.
 
+Tris Stock Also, I will bow out of this discussion at this point. I cannot argue you into believing scripture or God, nor was that my intent. I would hope that you and anyone reading would find real truth in scripture, and I pray that would happen. But it is not my place to force any of it on you.
 
+Daniel Dryland science requires a good understanding of math. Drifting 4-5cm a year would move the moon only 1000km or so in 20 million years. The moon is hundreds of thousands of kilometers away
 
After seeing this picture, Everywhere, all day, I thought I'd come back here and see just what had happened.

I want to congratulate all of you indignant, offended, and vigilant Crazies. You've managed to take an irrelevant (no offense, Tris) little joke, which you didn't like, and turn it from something that may have been shared 3 or 4 times, into a juggernaught that has been shared well over 350 times, and is being seen, enjoyed and encouraged all over the damned internet.

Your right wing, fundie-nutjob feeding frenzy has brought widespread derision, not only upon yourselves, but also upon your dear and fluffy lord. Hope you're all satisfied.

Felt I should edit this, to state that this only targets those who made obviously ignorant statements, many of which were either all or partially in full caps, in order to bring even more attention to their authors' ineptitude with logic, reason, of the basic tenants of their faith. It's not meant to target those of faith who show restraint, consideration of others, or basic common sense.

All the best.
 
+Daniel Dryland Every single thing you mentioned as a problem there has already been more than adequately explained by science.

That's a 100% score on being wrong. Congratulations.
 
+Daniel Dryland The numbers you state would equate to 1000km and would not entail the Earth and the Moon touching one another. I cannot find a link to NASA's site confirming what you say. Would you be so kind as to cite your sources?

"Elements can't fuse together naturally past Iron."

Whilst that is superficially correct, it cherry picks from the truth and does not relay the full account of how the heavy elements are formed.

What is a 'kind'? Is that like a hare and a cow being the same 'kind' because they both chew the cud? Lev. 11:6

+Jonathan Greer Anti-biblical? I am using scripture as (either you or someone else) said I should. If there no other options, then my statement was not a false dichotomy and the paradox still remains. Whether or not you are comfortable with that is... dare I say... irrelevant.

Either end times have happened or they haven't. By your own admission, there are no other options. If they have happened, we are too late and his prophesy - whilst technically correct - was inconsistent with his telling of it. Or they have not yet come, and his prophesy was false. These are inescapable conclusions.
 
Odin 1, Ice Giants 0....IN YOUR FACE Jesus!!!!....but seriously kids....Ice Giants and Hammers are dangerous...if you see an Ice Giant, call your nearest God.
 
+Tris Stock Proof in point of why I backed out. I used scripture to interpret scripture to prove that peter and the other 2 disciples saw Jesus in the Glory of his coming kingdom. And you count it as irrelevant. You are not using scripture to interpret scripture. You are using 1 verse out of context and claiming that it is a legitimate scriptural argument.... Good night.
 
The funny thing is that if +Daniel Dryland 's 4-5cm numbers are true, that would suggest that the moon was touching the earth a few billion years ago, further supporting the ice giant impact hypothesis for the formation of the moon rather than supporting young earth as he obviously intended.
 
+Tris Stock here is the link you asked for about the moon drifting away: http://curious.astro.cornell.edu/question.php?number=124

Also nobody has ever seen a star form, every 25-30 yrs we witness one blow up but never form. It is believed that if 20 stars blow up at once it would give off enough energy to create 1 new star, loss 20 to get 1 new star. If that's the case then why do we have enough stars that everyone can own over 10 Trillion stars each?

Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other elements of this world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon, the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones, and so forth, and this knowledge he holds to as being certain from reason and experience. Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics; and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn. The shame is not so much that an ignorant individual is derided, but that people outside the household of faith think our sacred writers held such opinions, and, to the great loss of those for whose salvation we toil, the writers of our Scripture are criticized and rejected as unlearned men. If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods and on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason? Reckless and incompetent expounders of Holy Scripture bring untold trouble and sorrow on their wiser brethren when they are caught in one of their mischievous false opinions and are taken to task by those who are not bound by the authority of our sacred books. For then, to defend their utterly foolish and obviously untrue statements, they will try to call upon Holy Scripture for proof and even recite from memory many passages which they think support their position, although "they understand neither what they say nor the things about which they make assertion." [1 Timothy 1.7]

+Tris Stock I've tried to help you see the truth and you simply reject any proof that has been given to you. I will not debate you anymore because i have to work in the morning.

This is not a win or loss type of debate, Romans 8:6-7, For to be carnally minded is death: but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be.

Psalm 19:7, The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making the wise the simple.

Goodnight and God bless

You know. I think I am going to return the 'God bless you' gesture with a 'Rot in a box' gesture in future. Its use is not a kind and thoughtful gesture, it is a blatant 'fuck you' always added after the 'I will not debate you' statement.

I am generally a reasonable person to debate with, but people that want to convince me of their beliefs are going to have to try a whole lot harder than Kent Hovind as evidence or proof.

The guy is a whackjob, and those that adhere to his insane ramblings simply do not posses the intellectual tools with which to discern fact from fiction.

Is that an ad hominem? Maybe, but I'll stand by it as an accurate statement of fact, and that ain't no fiction.
 
+Daniel Dryland you say that we simply reject your proof of the truth, but I really want ro understand this proof that you give of a young earth, in particular with relation to the moon.

You said that the moon is drifting away at a rate of 4-5cm per year, and that means that the moon would have been touching the earth 20 million years ago from that rate. That is the "proof" that you gave.

Please help me to understand.

5cm per year for 20 million years
5x20 = 100
100 million cm
= 1 million m
= 1000 km

The moon is well over 300,000km away. 1000km is less than 0.4% of that distance. According to your own figures, the moon was just 0.4% closer to us at that time, so how did you draw your conclusion?

I'm not choosing not to believe your proof, but your numbers just don't add up. There is an error somewhere. Tell me where the error is and I'll consider your proof.
 
Jeez guys take a joke. No need for a religious debate. 
 
Strange. People still don't respect God's Prophets even after their death though Prophet Jesus isn't dead like Prophet Khizr & will return. They find it amusing to call Jesus evil. As a muslim I've never done that. I respect all Prophets. It's part of my faith. It's even considered socially wrong to talk bad about a bad muslim after his death. The Holy Prophet Muhammad was right about the signs of the closure to Day of Judgement one of them being that people will remember those who preceded them with bad words.
 
+Greg Sandoval yes the Bible has been edited many times but take a moment to jump off your "the Bible's false" bandwagon for a moment and take a look at why.
One good explanation can be found here http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/bibleorg.html

Its sort of like translating "A brief history through time" by Stephen Hawkins into 12 different languages ....changes will occur due to the syntax of each , but the basic message remains the same.

However, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this topic. There is truly not one succinct answer, statement or comment that could encompass the entire breadth of this subject sufficiently enough to please everyone.

+Matt Taylor "because the bible says so" is not a defence ...it is a belief and a testament to faith ...if you dont have it then power to you , but dont use your lack of faith as a cover for an absence of character and maturity.

Christians read the Bible ...(get over it) we also try to live our lives according to its guidelines and yes, when we need to defend our faith we quote from it, sort of like Atheists quote scientific facts and theories to prove there isn't a God and to defend their lack of faith.
 
What an awful pic:/ 
Cha Li
 
hahaha odin ftw
 
yeah, God melted them all and then got rid of Odin for lying.
 
So because i don't believe in the same thing you do, i lack character and maturity. Typical.
 
no matt, you down what you don't believe in. That is what make you lack character and maturity. good one Milton!
 
Yeah, Christians never do that.....
 
Ooh Jesus protect me from your followers.....
 
Odin always keeps his word
 
When did Jesus ever promise to get rid of all wicked people?
 
+William Beaton don't worry, I had to reread the figures a few times too.

I don't mind the faith-only argument because at least it's honest with itself - "ie. this is just what I believe" - but if people try to justify faith with "science" they should at least make sure that they don't contradict basic school-level math.
 
Ice giants are real.
 
Read the verse before. This is an explanation of a parable and it is apocolyptic in nature. This is a prophecy about end times. We are clearly not there yet.
Matthew 13:40
"Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age."
 
According to Matthew 16:28 it should have come and gone.
 
And before you scream 'context'. Bear in mind I am using Matthew to contextualise Matthew.
 
+Adam Laborde, +Michael Tuggle, +Eric Schuetz I think Christians actually got that “There is only one God” part wrong. Let me quote the first commandment:

“I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

That sounds to me like the price for being rescued: If you have been bought out of bondage in Egypt you have forsake all other Gods you might have believed in before.

If you have not been bought out of bondage in Egypt the whole stuff does not apply to you and you may worship any God you like.

But wait: “before me” — Does that not indicate that you may still worship other Gods as long as you worship Jehova a little more. Maybe a Jew who knows the original text can clarify that.

Last not least: Nowhere in these two sentences it say that there are no other Gods. If fact the first commandment does quite the opposite: It implies the existence of other Gods.
 
Thankful for no ice giants! :)

Also just buying up some comment realty since this post will likely hit the limit soon. I want a good seat, you know.
 
well then matt let me restate that...Anyone who downs something they don't belive in lacks maturity and character. I'm not going to worry that you don't believe or that you do believe, my job is to believe in what I believe in and do me.
 
Okay Christians. If GOD is everywhere, and knows everything, and all that jazz...Why is it that through out history, long before Christianity was formed, and at the very least AS OLD as Judaism, Why are their other religions and Gods? How about this one...The Greeks and the Romans believed in the Titans and THE Gods long before Judaism even got a good footing. The Norse Gods have been around for a GREAT deal amount of time. Why would YHWH only talk to a bunch of individuals living in the desert? Wouldn't it have been prudent to talk to a few other places through out the world and tell them something on the lines, "BEHOLD, I AM YHWH. I AM...ah-hem sorry soar through. Anyway, I am the new God. The one God. I got this kid down in Jerusalem. He is going to be laying down the law. Just thought I would let you know. Carry on guys. PEACE!"
 
The interesting thing about hypocrisy is that we are all guilty of it, so the worst hypocrite is the one making a stink about it.
 
All the same "God" and his angels, just different explanations. Religion is man-made.
 
Can't we all agree that no one is going to change their opinion based on comments on Google+ so the point is pretty moot.
 
Damn you Odin, bring back the ice giants.
 
I love the joke in the poster, kinda clever... And as it seems, well suited to start the never ending religious "debates".

What I find even more funny (and sad) though, is how these debates still live on. The guys against religion always wins, still words from the bible keeps flying...

Belief is personal, let it stay that way, and stop forcing your beliefs onto others, makes me sick.
 
+Johan Forsell , completely agree. Debating the religious blind believers is usually pointless, and should be avoided, except when their beliefs are sought to be imposed on you.
 
Jesus never promised he'd kill all the wicked people. get your facts straight
 
And then there was Marvel and our ancient gods suddenly looks like gay supermen in tights. Funny pic though. Odin before he gave his eye to the Norns. Another funny Norse quote related to Tor: Your god was nailed to a cross, my god have a hammer.
 
Yeah...struggling to see where it says that in the Bible.
 
WHERE did Jesus say that?

Typical of an atheist to misquote the Bible to suit their own ends.

+Tris Stock The Bible says "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:14 KJV
Your verses do not support the statement "Jesus promised that he would get rid of the wicked people". You do not understand because you can not discern without the Holy Spirit.

Odin has done nothing for me. If he has helped you. Fine. As Elijah and Joshua said respectively...If the Lord be God, serve Him. If Baal, or Odin...in your case, be god, serve him. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

The Lord has done for me more than I can think or imagine.
 
+Brian Sargent They do support the statement "Jesus promised that he would get rid of the wicked people", because that is exactly what they support.

It would appear that being filled with the Holy Spirit actually hinders objective study of scripture.

Jesus, if accurately portrayed in Matthew, categorically stated that there are some amongst you that will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom. Are you suggesting that these people are still alive?
 
+Tris Stock thanks for posting this and proving my point to everyone. Odin approves!
 
I will agree that there is some truth to the statement made in the graphic. I don't agree with the way it is saying it. We all are wicked. I believe in the whole of the Bible. It tells me that none are good. It tells me that all have sinned. It tells me that my righteousness is as filthy rags. As I am sure you are aware, the Bible says that God was aware of the fact that men were lost and would die in our sins if something wasn't done. There was the blood sacrifice that was having to be continually made because man continually sinned and the sacrifice was not sufficient. So, God came to earth as a man to redeem man. The bottom line after Christ came, died, and rose again is that you have to accept His gift of eternal life and be cleansed from unrighteousness. Nothing I can do on my own can do that for me. So, in the end, the wicked (or those who have not accepted the cleansing freely given by Christ) will indeed be judged. If you are here when He comes back then Jesus will "get rid" of the wicked...or allow you to pay the price for your own sins.

Being filled with the Holy Spirit is the only way to correctly interpret the scriptures.

I imagine there are many different thoughts on what you are referring to. No. I do not believe that there is anyone alive that has heard the words of Christ as He spoke them. I believe one way of interpreting this verse is John was given the Revelation and saw with his eyes the Second Coming of Christ. He was among those in earshot of Christ's words.

I blocked Michael James because he was being a twat.

His point about Matthew 16:27-28 is simply not borne out of fact. http://hellbusters.8m.com/prophecy/DP/criticaltext.html

"It is our contention, based on the foregoing, that the only construct that properly deals with Matthew 16:27-28 is that it is indeed a singular discourse. Verse 28 simply emphasizes what had been said in verse 27 and places an emphatic time constraint on the text."
 
Anyone else want to call atheism a cult? Then state what it is a cult of, with reference to sources that categorically prove it, and I wont block your ass.
 
Aaaaaaand this is how wars start. "My One True God is better than your One True God" is what this is boiling down to.


Has anyone mentioned Nazis yet?
 
Didn't mean that in a nasty way, it's just that normally it's only a matter of time before that sort of accusation gets thrown around. Myself, I thought the original post was funny and took it in the way it was meant to be taken (I assume). +Tris Stock
 
+andy bradshaw I thought you might have been humorous. My comment was more of a resigned, 'Well, there's Godwin's Law being applied once again'.
 
+Tris Stock Learnt about Godwin's law from Stephen Fry. Yes, it was being applied in a humorous way. Then I could say "First!" (also humorously). Seriously though, good post, total rabble rouser. I salute you Sir!
 
Tell me +Corné Jansen van Vuren , now that you know that little tale you told is a lie, will you promise to all and sundry that you will never repeat it?
 
Yeah, but if Jesus killed all the wicked immediately, there would be no time for them to get saved. Jesus wants people in heaven, not hell.
 
+Laura Strauch By that reckoning, he will never get rid of wicked people; new ones are born every second.
 
theyre not called the shining gods for no reason. they will protect this planet. we all have the potential to be or act wicked,its called free will its up to us if we act upon it.
