You're saying we should write ourselves new self-fulfilling prophecy?
I can't help but think, or wonder.........if we as a society have read this book and accepted it as truth. Then we must all feel we are part of it and play our part to make it all happen in some way.
This has bothered me for a long time. I think the bible eventually gets to where we all want to be, but why all the BS inbetween?
Or........like I just saw on History Channel........Exodus decoded. I think Natural things happened that people use God as an excuse for.......like many have said that New Orleans has been hit by Katrina for the sins that go on there.
Now, if we believe that there is and has always been wars and hunger and disease........then there is nothing different about the past, present or what will happen in the future.
But how we look at this and what we do with this is information can be different.
So maybe we cannot change anything that happens ......lets say in nature......but how we interpret it ......(just an example)
