That little video left out everything about the goats being separated from the sheep and being cast into the outer darkness and all that . . . it left out about sinners being punished. It seemed like a protestant web site, and this would make sense because typically protestant thought doesn't dwell on the "fire and brimstone" side of things.
So many people I know, typically older folks at the ends of their lives, believe these truly are the end times. One gentleman I know thinks that either Generation X or Gen X's children will go through the three days of darkness and the second coming. This fellow is fond of saying how glad he is he won't have to live through it but pokes fun at the little kids telling them to get ready!
All I know is, "Death comes like a theif in the night," and that "No one knows" when the world will end "but the Father who is in heaven." (I forget the exact words . . .) So, if it happens within the next 100 years and I'm alive . . . fine. If it doesn't happen for another 200 or 2000 years . . . fine, too.

one must prepare for the coming of the Lord. The rapture could happen at any moment.The only way to be prepared, is to know Jesus Christ, as one's personal Savior.Let us join together to spread the good news of the gospel. Amen

I'm a Christian and all of my studies of the word of GOD tells me that. God who has creative us in his image and likeness has provided every possible thing (His Word most importantly)that we need to live in his universe. There is no reason to question anything he has told us in his word. Since the beginning when GOD demanded us not to, we have. Until we obey his word and live faithful to his will we will always question him.

Is there any reason to question the fact that denominations can't agree on what He has told us in His Word? Is there any reason to question the conflicting interpretations of His Word which comprise denominational teaching?

i'm an adventist, because i believe the bible, not because of some of the harsh, judgemental people i met during my early years. I think your presentation was very good. Of course, there will always be someone somewhere who says "why didn't you include this, or that?" I liked it for what it did do., so there!! Wish there was some way to down-load it and play it for my church we have powerpoint and other capabilities. thanks a lot. it was good.

When one believes something, they are in fact, practicing faith! Some believe the Scientists that say a Big Bang erupted and brought forth life and the living! And Our intricate bodies and minds that are capable of evolving our own species, was just a coincedence...a freak of nature as it were! Hmmm...Seems much too far fetched than the other possibility. That we were created...planned with much fore thought. Seems like the Bible's predictions are coming true most accurately! How is this so? Are we merely mirroring what we have read and causing our own outcomes to imitate those words, or is prophecy being fulfilled? Since we are all betting on our lives, I would go with what seems to make the most sense. After all, the rewards of a little faith, far outweigh the means of a Scientific belief. Blessings!

What makes the most sense to me is to accept what science can demonstrate to be true with a high degree of probability, and to recognize it as the work of Almighty God. Claiming that it all happened by blind chance is irrational. So is offhand rejection of the findings of science because of a supposed conflict with religious belief.
