the Lion of Lakes - SWEAT

Doing away with all nuclear weapons is a lofty goal, but I'm afraid it remains a pipe dream which would never work in reality. And the chief reason it would sure to be an abject failure is the profound fallen nature which mankind has struggled with ever since the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden 6 to 7 thousand years ago, and which is not likely to improve anytime soon. Once the nuclear genie was out of the bottle in 1945, and mankind discovered the secret of how to construct a nuclear bomb, there was no going back. If the good guys were ever foolish enough to give up all their nuclear weapons, then only the bad guys would have them, since the bad guys certainly would not be foolish enough to give up theirs. Once this happened, an absolute murderous holocaust would ensue for sure.

That's a sad view of things. Because as long as they exist we can be sure they will be used again at some point. It was the so-called "good guys" who used them against Hiroshima and Nagasaki. John Paul and Fulton Sheen had it right.

It is a sad view of things, but it is reality. We have lived in a very sad world ever since the fall of Adam and Eve, not likely to change before the Second Coming. And furthermore, the final book of the Bible, the Book of Revelation says that this world will end in a violent conflagration between the forces of good and the forces of evil; NOT in a peaceful acceptance of God's will for mankind. No! The Bible had it right!!!

You must be reading from someone else's scriptures. Read the last chapter of Revelations - chapter 22.

No. I think it is you cherry picking passages you like. The end - Armageddon - is a violent conflagration. There is no getting around fallen human nature. It will always be there. The Book of Revelation confirms it. And your assertion that that "the good guys" used them in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, only proves my point better. For, if not even the 'good guys' could resist the urge to use the weapon, then it is doubly or triply certain that the bad guys would surely use them, given the fact that they have even less of a check on their fallen human nature due to their rejection of God.

No as a matter of fact I think you are cherry-picking - and I think I have anunderstanding of the spiritual message of the scriptures. But it's not worth going back and forth on it. I will stick with Fulton Sheen and John Paul on this. You stick with your interpretation. You can have the last word.

the Lion of Lakes - SWEAT

It is not 'my interpretation'. It clearly says it in Scripture. I'll stick with the inerrant, inspired Word of God. And you can stick with whatever lesser lights you're sticking with. And you better not answer this message, since you already said that I can 'HAVE THE LAST WORD.' But if you should dare to renege on this promise, the multitudes will forever view you as dishonest!
