    Well, you can call me out if big mushroom cloud appears soon, but I don't think it will!! Trump and Kim playing chicken, and most likely someone will chicken out and lose face big time!
    "It's easier to say that it's not our [US Democrats'] fault, but Russians' fault, say that they interfered with the elections... It reminds me of anti-Semitism, when everything is Jews' fault. Someone is a mutt, can't do a thing, but the Jews are to be blamed. But we know where such an attitude leads to, it never ends well"

    No more difficult than it has been during any other major calamity that has befallen the world since Jesus' ascension.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    Why should it be?
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    Veritas vos Liberabit<>< Learn Greek <>< Look here for an Orthodox Church in America<><Ancient Faith Radio

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

I imagine it feels uncomfortable to be an idiot, but maybe not if you're used to it? What do you think?

    I am inclined to be a Futurist, but you appear to be inclined to be a jerk.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    1. The hyperbole quoted is actually literal.
    2. The flood killed nearly all of humanity so it's impossible for the times of trouble to be worse
    3. Lawgic status: Trapped

    1. The flood is not literal
    2. But an apocalyptic book's hyperbolic statement should be taken literally?
    3. Lawgic status: Trapped

    1. How is mass slaughter worse than the fall of man? That sounds like a far worse time of trouble given that it damned all of humanity instead of just kill a much smaller number of people.
    2. Lawgic status: Trapped

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    Drowning is clearly not worse than witnessing catastrophic events on earth alongside disease, plagues, famine, cruelty, demonic entities causing men's hearts to fail them from fear, etc.

    Jesus referred to the flood as literal.

    After the fall, Adam and Eve basically got told to eat their vegetables. That's not a worse event than the events listed above. If anything, the fall had the potential to lead to what's coming, but when it comes, that will be the actuality. The actuality is greater than the potential.

    Don't come at me with this weak sauce again, bruh.

    I'm a jerk to anyone who keeps the truth from people, whether they do so intentionally or with "good intentions."

    They went from life in paradise to subsistence farming. And mortality. And pain. Not fun.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!
