Everything You Wanted to Know About Revelation … But Were Afraid to Ask
Friday, May 21, 2010
Almost 80 percent of Christians believe that Jesus will come again ... and 20 percent of them believe it will happen in their lifetime. That's tens of millions of Americans who believe Jesus' return is imminent. Based on what you, ask? Largely on modern Christianity's interpretation of one book in the Bible: Revelation. In some instances it can turn potentially deadly—witness the recent arrest of nine Michigan Christian militia members for plotting to kill “anti-Christ” government representatives, “preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive.” With so much focus on one text, might it not behoove us to take it out and give it a once-through with a New Thought lens? Laura examines the "Book of Revelations" and the Second Coming in both literal and metaphorical terms and how it impacts our present generation.
