    Forgive me if someone has posted this earlier. Am still new here so hope am not repeating what may be an earlier thread. Driving to work this morning, I mused on the eventline described in the Revelation book. Sometime before the onset of the GREAT TRIBULATION," J will PUT IT INTO THE HEARTS OF ALL WORLD RULERS TO DO AWAY WITH FALSE RELIGION". (Babylon The Great). so:

    1. How come FREE WILL takes a nose-dive with J guiding the hearts of the Beast's minions?

    2. If J can magically change the hearts of men with such flagrant ease and cruise control their thought processes, why the heck didn't this navigation kick in at Eden? During the history of man with bimbos like Hitler and Stalin and Bin Ladin to name just three? And of course the WBTS and its FDS with their false doctrines, torture of innocents and pro-pediophilia mandates?

    If this is the brand of logic the FDS is pumping out, one must be lobotomized to be still in. ( present company excepted).

    Ancient mythology is full of cockeyed logic, even sourced from Judo-Christian religions.

    Why ?

    Because its fictional story telling set to create relevance and power toward select imagined deities.

    The book of Revelation in the Bible to use an example.

    The writer of Revelation was trying to express how their god was the true god and most powerful among the many other

    gods worshiped in ancient times, expressed to define their(his) own specific god.


    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Book of Revelation, often known simply as Revelation or the Apocalypse, [ 1 ] is the final book of the New Testament and occupies a central place in Christian eschatology. Written in Koine Greek, its title is derived from the first word of the text, apokalypsis, meaning "unveiling" or "revelation." The author of the work identifies himself in the text as "John" and says that he was on Patmos, an island in the Aegean, when he was instructed by a heavenly figure to write down the contents of a vision. This John is traditionally supposed to be John the Apostle, although some historical-critical scholars reject this view. [ 2 ] Recent scholarship has suggested other possibilities including a putative figure given the name John of Patmos. Most modern scholars believe it was written around AD 95, with some believing it dates from around AD 60.

    The book spans three literary genres: epistolary, apocalyptic, and prophetic. It begins with an epistolary address to the reader followed by an apocalyptic description of a complex series of events derived from prophetic visions which the author claims to have seen. These include the appearance of a number of figures and images which have become important in Christian eschatology, such as the Whore of Babylon and the Beast, and culminate in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

    The obscure and extravagant [ 3 ] imagery has led to a wide variety of interpretations: historicist interpretations see in Revelation a broad view of history; preterist interpretations treat Revelation as mostly referring to the events of the apostolic era (1st century), or—at the latest—the fall of the Roman Empire; futurists believe that Revelation describes future events; and idealist or symbolic interpretations consider that Revelation does not refer to actual people or events, but is an allegory of the spiritual path and the ongoing struggle between good and evil.

    The Book of Revelation is the only apocalyptic document in the New Testament canon, although there are short apocalyptic passages in various places in the Gospels and the Epistles.
