It seems that suggesting that the Pope may be the fulfillment of the condition that The Antichrist must be walking the earth in human form is unacceptable but it is OK to suggest the Euro fulfills the condition that The countries of the world must have the same currency and that the United Nations may be considered as One World Government, like the Revelation 7th beast. Surely they are equally daft and shouldn't be here either?
- "These things also belong to the wise: It is not good to show partiality in judgment." (Proverbs 24:23)
- Equating the Pope (Or the Catholic church) with the Antichrist is not a new idea. Protestants have been doing it for a very long time, and it's got quite a following with the fans of end-time prophercy - it fits in nicely with their idea of the Antichrist imposing a false religion, with the added irony of perverting Christ's own teaching to do so. As for the global currency... it isn't yet. But given that consolidating currencies is easier than creating a new one, it may be unified one day in future. And on World Government... the UN isn't that powerful. This would suggest the conditions arn't right yet, but could be in another fifty or more years. NewCrusader 13:32, 12 November 2008 (EST)

- I agree. Potty. That's why I insisted on attributing the ideas to 'some evangelical commentators' rather than, as the way of it is around here, to 'Christians'! --Petrus 08:35, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
Oy a bruch!
Give me a break! The United Nations can't even agree that the Sudanese are practicing genocide in Darfur, let alone a single world government and currency. Teresita 01:21, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
Speaking as how a lot of you guys believe in YEC, we have been waiting for Jesus to return for 1/3 of all existence.
How does that fit with Matt. 16:28, Luke 9:27, Matt. 23:36, Mark 9:1, Luke 21:32, 1 Corinth. 7:29, Hebrews 1:2, 1 Peter 4:7, 1 John 2:18, Revelation 1:1, Revelation 3:11, etc.?
The NT makes it pretty clear that it's going to be "soon" according to the time of the authors. 2,000 years is not soon, especially if you consider the Earth to be 6,000 years old. Muchodelcrazy 22:10, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
Restructuring the article
With all the news about Harold Camping, I decided to visit the CP page about the Rapture. After reading it, I noticed a few things: (1) Three independent lead-in paragraphs, (2) an intro section that is far longer than the remainder of the article, and (3) a lack of flow from one thought to another. Because of this, I have tried to restructure the article with better subheadings. I haven't changed the content too much but I believe the article deserves a better arrangement of ideas than what existed before. And JonG, yes, I have added a brief reference as well.

Still too many lead-in paragraphs. The biggest problem is that the entire article is written from a post-tribulation or pre-wrath perspective. There needs to be less bias in the lead-in and sections for Pre-Trib pro and con and Pre-wrath/post-trib pro and con. Olec 17:37 21 March 2017 (EDT)
