All Comments Welcome !

This is still a toddler-blog, born Jan. 8th and growing up fast!

One of the best features of blogs is the Comments Section.

If you've never checked it out, below each post is a link (in orange on this blog) like this: 2 Comments. Clicking on it lets you leave a Comment! These Comments are the "Food" that a Blog needs to "Grow"...

The B.I.D.E. Blog has (so far) one E-mail Reporter who graces us with commentary that always ends up here in a Post. From time to time, to facilitate closer bonds between us, I'll bring interesting Comments into a Post.

It's not on the front page now (there's also an orange link at the bottom of all the posts that says "Older Posts" and leads to, uuunh, older posts...) but the post Doomsday (exploring the concept of the "End of the World") has some fascinating comments. Fascinating enough for me to reproduce some of them here:

Maybe I'm just too young but I like to think that the end is a long way off. Partly because I'm not spiritually where I need to be and partly because I want to think that Mary-Alice will have a long and happy life ahead of her.

I do believe that we are going through some hard times right now but haven't people been saying the end is near for like ever. I mean the year I graduated from High School was supposed to be the year the world ended because it was the number of the beast times 3(where ever that came from). Well we are still here and there isn't a person running around claiming to be the new messiah that I know of anyway.

I also know that the temple has to be rebuilt before the end times come and it hasn't been rebuilt yet. I know they are talking about it but there are more signs then just anarchy that signify the end times. I'm just not seeing them yet. I also haven't heard of lots of people just up and disappearing across the planet. Wouldn't that be a big sign that no-one could ignore?

Can't thank you enough for your lengthy and informative comment!

I have a challenge for you:
(if you're still on a college campus at times during the day)
Conduct a few interviews with folk about how they think the "world will end" and when they believe it will...
That's your Mission should you accept it...

Forgot to say that part of that Mission is to report back to us here at the Blog...

I talked to a few people.

Some comments were:
My opinion changes with my mood. I'll deal with it when it happens.

Hadn't really thought about it.

People need to read Revelation and not just subscribe to the standard interpretation on the text.

About all I can add to that exchange right now is that the book of
Revelation in the Christian Bible is one of the most familiar texts (to Christians). Other Faiths have Their own.

Anyone care to share (in the Comments) what their Faith says about the "End of the World" or the "End Times"?
