Re: Prophecy or Preaching?


Once upon a time, certain militant Christians (whose posts and replies appear earlier in this forum, among others) attempted to start "debates" with folks on the subject of prophecy by declaring those non-Biblical forms of prophecy to be abominations before God, along with sufficient Biblical evidence to make it fairly plain what the official Christian party line is with respect to the subject.

Well, his/their interpretation, anyway.

Consider this latest thread an echo, a ripple of that explosion in the spiritual continuum.

Unfortunately, this means that the counter-swing is now in effect. Christian prophecy (which, let's face it, paints a pretty grim picture for a substantial number of posters present) sounds a lot like those fights of months ago. "By the way, kiddies, flatter Jesus incessantly or he'll torture you in ways Stephen King couldn't imagine for the entirety of your miserable otherworldly existence, which will go on without end!"

I'm paraphrasing in a somewhat sarcastic manner, of course, but that should give you the gist of how some non-Christians see Christian prophecy.

Christian prophecy is tightly bound to Christian proselytizing. There's really no escaping it. The purpose of Christian prophecy seems to be to serve as a reminder to the worthy of what infintely blissful rewards await them for their devotion, and a notice to the unworthy of what infinitely painful punishments await them for their failure to obey the edicts from on high, as handed down through the Bible. Consequently, a post on Christian prophecy raises the ire of non-Christians who have moved into the "fed up" phase of dealing with proselytizing Christians.

With a little work, we can perhaps move such folks into the realm of freedom on the topic, wherein they no longer feel a compulsion to retaliate against Christian commentary with non-Christian commentary.

Which side will learn to turn the other cheek first?
