    Population has nothing to do with industriousness...

    I showed pictures. It has been rebuilt. Come on, seriously, God in his wrath says "You will never be rebuilt!" But really he meant..."well, your widgets won't be quite as good as they were before. And your trade might drop a bit."? Elvira, that is not what the wrathful god of the bible meant. You know that.

    That is exactly what He meant, by what Ezekiel said..."you will become a place to spread fishnets"...that's all the place is today...

    No. That's ridiculous. Yahweh said it would never be rebuilt. It has been rebuilt. I showed you pictures. You can go there. And there is almost certainly far more trade occurring there now than in biblical times. it's a big city with high rises and stuff. That means electricity, sewer, garbage, roads, police, fire, etc. etc.....all paid for by trade.

    But I guess you're stuck, aren't you? You need to believe in inerancy of the bible, so no matter how ridiculous it is, you can't admit that obviously a wrathful god saying "You shall never be rebuilt!" does not mean "trade might drop for bit." If that's what it meant, I then that's what he would have said. And admit it, those would be some funny verses.

    Ezekiel 26:14
    "And I the Lord in my wrath say unto you: Your trade will dip at least four percent for two quarters, and at least two percent in two other quarters, although those quarters might not be consecutive. But this only works if calculations are done using the accrual method for a fiscal year end of April 30! Oh, right, and you can't include fishing or mining in those calculations either. For I the Lord have spoken!"

    But you're arguing that this is what your God meant. Come on Elvira.

    You're barking at the wrong tree. Who's saying prophecies are predictions?
    I think that was Justhanging who brought up prophecies (he tends to hang himself with his own words)! Direct your lecture at him.
    You two have a lot in common!

    I'm sure the 7 cardinal sins -pride, envy, wrath, sloth, greed, gluttony and lust - are all being practiced now, more than ever!
    Thanks to the feminist movement, political correctness and socialist mentality permeating all societies in the world.
    In that case the virtues are not being adhered to.

    When you say "people," do you mean everyone, or most? Do you mean nations?



    I wouldn't know when exactly the end times will be coming. No forecast on that......
