Both purgatory and pre-rapturism are 2nd chance for salvation, heresies. Just as the Roman Catholic church teaches purgatory is a place where an unsaved though not necessarily damned person will go to ‘suffer as a penitent’ for sins, so does the rapture teaching allow someone to be left behind and through great tribulation up to and including beheading, will escape damnation.
Understand the collaboration between the Vatican and Nazis as the true story of a Nazi officer tries to stop Hitler’s killing of targeted individuals, faiths, races, and intellects. German Lieutenant Kurt Gerstein was a chemist who ordered Zyklon B to purify the water supply but discovers it was being used to exterminate Jews, Gypsies, and other ‘targeted individuals.’
Was the RCC behind the ‘pre-trib’ doctrine? Both purgatory and pre-rapturism are 2nd chance for salvation, heresies. Many Evangelicals, believing the Lord will return secretly several years before the final apocalypse, think that if they miss “the first round draft” will, after “great tribulation and/or beheading” be found worthy of salvation. But what if there is no 2nd return? What if it is ‘as in the days of Noah?’ When the ark door closed, you were either in the ark and saved or out of the ark and lost. So many people who believe the pretrib rapture may be hedging their conversion on a “grace period” analogous to a ‘Purgatory.’
The Exorcist is an over dramatization which ‘misdirects’ the world to look for extreme graphic and obscene outward manifestations of demonic presence and activity. But the devil is much more subtle than to display his grotesque nature in a horn-headed, red-skinned suit with a spade-tipped tail and cloven feet.
What will be the catalyst for martial law? Is it possible that a ‘rigged election’ would generate enough anger to bring the radical right and rowdy religious who support Trump to the streets? How many agent provocateurs are planted within these passionate action groups? Watch the polls for anomalies. Trump should be way ahead but Hillary will likely be declared the winner.
It was a high-stakes political moment, far from the chummier confines of the “Today” show and, for Matt Lauer, NBC’s stalwart of the morning, a chance to prove his broadcasting mettle on the presidential stage.The consensus afterward was not kind.Charged with overseeing a live prime-time forum with Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton, Mr. Lauer found himself besieged on Wednesday evening by critics of all political stripes, who accused the anchor of unfairness, sloppiness and even sexism in his handling of the event.
This is no unintended consequence. This storm of criticism was planned and propagated to garner sympathy for Hillary.
This portrays Hillary as a vulnerable person and appeals to our human nature and natural sympathetic tendencies. Most voters will choose a candidate based on emotion rather than discerning intellect.
If the NFL allows these ‘anthem protest’ to continue, I have to conclude that they are promoting the race war and this again is by design. — My gut feeling was that Kaepernick was working with a ‘Soros-like’ agency to bring the Black Lives Matter type racial friction to ‘prime time’ and all the sports…
