View Full Version : Tribulations in Christianity - The Religion Of Death

Been looking to post something about the Tribulations for awhile. This guy has it spot on:


Christianity is easily one of the most popular religions in the world today. At 2.1 billion, Christians comprise about 33% of the world’s population and this faith is also the most widely practiced religion in America. While many people claim allegiance to the doctrines of the Christian church, the truth is that very few people truly understand it’s teachings or the implications of what is preached in it’s churches. Many people operate under the false assumption that Christianity is a religion of peace, love and openness but a brief study of some of it’s central beliefs will show this to be false.

The most fundamental belief of most Christians, especially those claiming to be “born again”, is the idea that Christ will come again to judge the sinners of the world and bring his true followers into an everlasting paradise. This isn’t the doctrine taught to new converts as they are usually presented with a very simple understanding of Christ and his teachings as recorded in the Gospels. This doctrine of the second coming of Christ is reserved for those “true believers”, those followers who have proven themselves as true disciples of the Christian Church.

The reason why this belief in the second coming is so critical to the belief system of modern Christians is because it reinforces the true nature of the religion as a whole. Far from being a religion of peace, love and life, the Christian Church teaches a doctrine of division and death. The concept of the second coming, of the Tribulation and the Rapture, is so necessary because it legitimizes the obvious divisiveness of many of the Church’s teachings. A proper understanding of this doctrine of death is so important because it sheds light upon the true nature of the Christian Church and many of it’s followers.

Many people who lack a proper understanding of the true nature of what is called Christianity find it hard to reconcile the actions of Christians with the supposed belief system they follow. This is because they have bought into the idea that Christianity is a religion of love yet they see it’s followers spewing hate and condemning those around them. Were they to connect the obvious clues with that which is spouted from the pulpit, they would soon come to understand Christians as following a doctrine of death and praying for the destruction of the world.

Christians believe that the period of time directly preceding the second coming is known as “The Tribulation”. This period of tribulation is, in fact, a period of great horror and destruction, of agony and suffering for all man kind. It is during this Tribulation that Christians believe all the sinners of the world will be punished and tortured, that empires will fall and all will be destroyed. This is the “Salvation of the World” that the Christian Church speaks of. What many people don’t understand is that Christians aren’t simply waiting around for the second coming but they are actively praying for it and doing everything in their power to make it happen.

The Tribulation is one of the core beliefs of the Christian religion and is the basis for much of what is practiced with in it. Far from fearing this period of horror and death, Christians eagerly await the second coming and delight in fantasies about the torture of sinners. One of the most popular series of books among Christians, in fact, deals with this period of death in brutal and horrific detail. When someone manages to get past the simplistic explanation of Christianity fed to those ignorant of it’s deeper teachings, it becomes quite plain to see that, far from loving life and their fellow man, Christians follow a doctrine of death and pray for the horrific destruction of the world.

Religious beliefs are one thing, as they will often seem quite odd to those outside of a certain faith. What should truly concern people is the fact that Christians operate under the command of these death obsessed people. The simple fact is that, to them, non-Christians are evil and deserve to be tortured and burned. This belief results in a complete division, a separation, of Christians from the unbelieving sinners and causes Christians to elevate themselves above their fellow man. If you aren’t a Christian then you have billions of people praying for your brutal murder and eternal torture.

On the surface, when taken only from the Gospels, the teachings of Jesus are truly quite peaceful and center mostly around the love of one’s fellow man. The Church that has been built around the subsequent books of the New Testament, however, is far from this unifying concept of love for all and, in reality, teaches a divisive doctrine of death and horror save for those who truly believe. There are many in government, the military and even our educational system, who follow this doctrine and believe in what is taught in the churches. There are people in positions of real and immediate Earthly power who eagerly anticipate the destruction of the world and all with in it.

While this idea may be worrying enough, it is important to understand that most Christians today believe we are currently approaching this period of tribulation. Churches all across the country, both large and small, are teaching their congregation that the end is near, that the expected destruction of the world is at hand. The real reason that people should be concerned becomes obvious when you consider that many of those in true positions of power are convinced that the end of the world is near. When you understand that the followers of the Christian doctrine of death are operating under the belief that the destruction of non-Christians is at hand, one can’t help but worry about those who have gained power, about the 2.1 billion people who are followers of this faith.

An obvious question arises when confronted with this knowledge and that is the question of why these people do not fear the end of the world. The truth is that most Christians are also taught to believe in the Rapture. During this Rapture, all true Christians will be brought up into the sky and will be safe from all the suffering and destruction being brought upon the non-Christians. These same people who pray daily for the destruction of the world also believe that they will not have to suffer through it. This is, perhaps, the most worrying aspect of the entire doctrine of destruction. There are people who have come into positions of enough power to actually cause the destruction of all life. These people who believe the end of the world is nigh and believe it is their duty, as Christians, to make this a reality also believe they will not have to endure it’s horrors.

While respect for other’s beliefs is important and the freedom of religion is one of the core values of the American constitution, we must ask ourselves if it is wise to allow such a dangerous doctrine to be taught. When we consider the fact that there are billions of people, some very powerful and commanding great wealth, that are actively trying to bring about the destruction of the world, we must question the rationality of allowing this to go on unchallenged. We must ask ourselves if we will let death obsessed people bring about the destruction of all life on Earth simply because we don’t’ wish to infringe on anyone’s personal beliefs.

The person who is attacking Christianity is confusing the Scofield Heresy and the Dominionists with mainstream Christians.. He is too ignorant to have an opinion.. and you should have caught that instantly.

It's not ignorance, haven't you ever heard "the Lord's Prayer"? Go read it, what do you think that's about?

Many Christians actively pray every day for the destruction of the earth. That's a FACT.

Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.

See that? That's talking about God coming from Heaven to destroy the earth, send all the "sinners" to hell, and build a heaven on earth.

They are not praying for destruction..

Read the Sermon on the Mount. The destuction of the Temple ushered in a new age.. a new covenant.

Armageddon occurred already- when Rome destroyed the State of Israel.

The OP does get it wrong about Christianity being obsessed with death. They don't believe in death- at least for believers. Also in the beginning they still believed in reincarnation. Not sure why they tossed that out.

No death if we bow down to the "God" you worship and give 10% of everything we have to the church. Only material, earthly goods matter to the Christian "God", eh?

What's that called? A tithe?
