Stripped Back Scriptures Podcast.

13 Aug

For a while, I have been looking for a podcast that does for other scriptures what Micheal Heiser does for the Bible.  Which is to look at the scriptures in their own context. try to envision how the original writers conceive of there world. I was unable to find someone that was doing what I was looking for, so I have decided to do it my self.  As moderns, we have a lot of knowledge prepacked into our brains, when we read the scriptures, we read it through the lens of our faith system.  As I’m most familiar with the Book of Mormon that is the book that I’m going to start on.
Eventually, I want to cover the scriptures of other belief systems, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and Hinduism to name a few.
I won’t be reading every verse I will just read a few verses that interest me and then look at what academic research has to say about those verses. I will add any PDFs that I find to the show notes. I hope in future to interview some people that have inspired me in my study of the scriptures.

August 12 Rapture – Maybe not.

8 Aug

There has recently been an influx of rapture video to my youtube feed indicating that it will be happening on the 12 of August. Since 2015 it seems that around August and September somebody is predicting that the rapture will happen. It hasn’t happened yet and I don’t really think it will happen when people expect it.
But If I’m wrong and the rapture does happen on the 12th then I’ll be happy as life has been really sucky lately. It will be good to have it all over and to be living in the spirit world waiting 7 years for it all to end.  The antichrist will rise and it will be hell on earth for the next seven years till the savior comes.
I’m not really a believer int he pre-trib Rapture. I know that Jesus my Lord and Saviour will be coming back someday to take evil off this earth and to usher in a time of peace and prosperity and that most of us will live happily ever after.
