I have asked a relgious Christian American about what she thinks of this current war of Israel on Lebanon.
Her answer was:
We are sad by it, but not surprised, really. We do believe it’s a part of what the Bible refers to as “end times” – the wars and rumors of war, etc… also fits in with all the weird weather around the world as well as other things.
Like you, we hope it ends soon and doesn’t become WWIII.
I believe there will be lives lost on both sides, but because of prophesies in Scripture–I believe ultimately Israel will remain–at least for a time–even if this did go into WWIII. Israel seems to play a vital part in the end times (according to Christian Biblical Scripture). I believe Scripture so I believe this. Personally, therefore, I wouldn’t want to be a country coming against Israel.
I am always saddened by war–ALWAYS. I pray this will come to some type of peaceful end soon, but am not sure that’s going to happen
Have you known before that there are some prophesies as well about a final war in the Islamic teaching?
It is basically the same of those in the bible but from an Islamic perspective where the final word would be for those following Allah.
Sadly, those prophesies would eventually come true, not because they meant to happen when they were written, but because people believed it and are working to achieve it blindly.
We would realize how silly we are when we destroy each other waiting for the judgment day that might never come!
Christians, Jews, Muslims WAKE UP. If any of your God’s exists, he won’t be sitting up there watching his creation killing each other. What kind of God that would be?
Be smart, don’t make those prophesies come true!
