  •  You can't reason with this kind of thinking (3+ / 0-)

    it doesn't really lend itself to questions or critical thought.  It never says things like "gee the disciples themselves thought Jesus would return in their lifetime and were wrong so maybe I am misreading the signs 2000 years later."  It never spends any time considering the various groups over the last 2000 years who thought the end was upon them and found out differently.  It never allows for the "well maybe I could be just a little bit wrong" moment.

    By its nature there is a certain kind of arrogance about it.  It implies you think you are smart enough to parse and explain Revelation - something most of Christianity has simply seen as a great mystery forever and never claimed to understand.  End timers think they have cracked the code; that they know something nobody else knows.

    they might spend better time trying to crack the code of the teachings of Jesus which are more about serving others. How can that compete with technicolor horsemen and whores of Babylon and the ultimate escape hatch of the rapture?
