Below is an article I found on diasporafoundation.org, which is a new kind of Facebook substitute, and a comment exchange I had with the writer, that may be interesting for others who are influenced by this – IMHO- wrong view. I am neither a believer in Left Behind Zionist Evangelical interpretations of Bible prophecy, but I don’t believe that most things are alrady happened and in the past! You can join Diaspora too and find me there under ‘ParadisePost’.
Here follows the article by Robin:
Has Most Bible Prophecy Already Been Fulfilled?
I know #end-times stuff has been really popular for decades. It sells a lot of books and makes a lot of money for “experts” in #bible#prophecy. Even when their #predictions and prognostications prove to be utterly false over and over again, guys like Hal Lindsey and a host of others still are believed and still sell books and seminars and videos. I think it hurts #gospel#evangelism a great deal when these guys claim that their predictions come straight from the bible! When they don’t come true, people are like, “Well, I guess Hal Lindsey just proved the bible to be false!” Are these people more likely to be receptive to the gospel after some “prophecy expert” seemingly just “proved” the bible to be false? I don’t think so.
Christians persecuted by Islamic State in the Middle East believe the world has forgotten them, but remain convinced that God is near, an Iraqi bishop has said.
Speaking to East County Magazine, Bishop Mar Shlemon Warduni, who has been working in San Diego but before that served in Baghdad, said: “our people are suffering too much”.
“Nobody loves them, nobody takes care of them,” he added. “The children, the young people, they have no future. They finish studying and they have no job. Always, we cry, all over the world, for those children.”
Hundreds of thousands of Christians have fled the Middle East since the rise of ISIS, though some have remained behind. Both groups “sometimes… feel that nobody cares for us,” the bishop said.
In case you hadn’t noticed, Powerpointparadise.com is down again! Host Gator has also restricted our access, so there is nothing I can do to relieve the pressure on that (shared) server, and my ultimate webmaster has no time to be involved, he said, and so we are looking again at a 2-3 week down period for our main site and blogs there. Or longer? Or none at all??
