Will America go the way of the Roman Empire?
The America I grew up in is nothing like the America I live in at this time. Are those days numbered and will survive for say, the next hundred years?
It absolutely will, and is headed in that direction at a pace too fast to stop. American's are now fat, stupid, and drugged on fda medications beyond the hope of repair.
Our government IS the global terrorist organization...there aren't many "good guys" left in the USA.
Yes. Every empire that ever existed eventually fell apart. We are behaving more in this country like that Athenian Democracy, which was a huge disaster. Most people are not aware that our country was supposed to be a Republic, not a pure democracy, and all of the founding fathers knew this. ONe of our founding fathers said that when the people found out that they could influence the treasurey and get money from it with thier vote, that our Republic would be over, and that time is now. It is obvious that we value popular vote over the rule of law now. OUr country is over.
So you are saying the US is intentionally not a democracy? What is the difference between a democracy and a republic? Democracy IS popular vote, it is up to the leaders to lead the public, not sit back and take payoffs from big business.
@Alex2009- I am still learning and figuring all of this out, and this is just a laymen's take on it. And Hubpages is only allowing so many characters here. so, you will just have to get on line like I did, my paragraph is absolutely verifiable.
The Vatican (papacy) is going to pass the sunday blue law eventually which means go to church on sunday or be killed, or obey God and keep His 7th day Sabbath (saturday) holy. Study deep in Revelation 13.
Nobody knows for sure when an empire collapses. People predict the downfall of a superpower when they see signs of weakness. However, It may take decades or centuries for an empire to collapse or recover. Either way, don't worry, as there will always be a new empire taking over. Nature abhors a vacuum.
Nah, we won't last as long as Rome and we won't leave any sort of legacy on the world. Our model and length of time on the world stage is more like the Vikings of the Middle ages. They formed a society. They became a commercial power that was superstitious and unrefined and uneducated. They became the major military power that raided, pillaged, and established footholds all over the world. And then they sort of forgot about the business part and faded into the higher cultures without leaving much of a cultural mark of their own. All of this happened within the span of about 300 years. That'll be the US I think.
What was the last point in their history the Roman Empire could have turned things around; And remember, in the 5th century it gave up its western half and continued on with its eastern half for many more centuries of power and influence.
There are two periods noted in the Roman Empire. There's the dove period when expansion was made mostly via commerce. Then there's the eagle period when expanion was mainly due to war. The question is whether or not the USA is in dove mode or eagle mode. I think the USA is going from dove to eagle which is dangerous. Defying the United Nations some years back and attacking Iraq over weapons that didn't exist was a sign. The Romans were turned from doves to eagles by the Greeks who wouldn't play by Roman rules. If the USA is on the eagle path then it is due to 9/11. The Roman Empire got too big and so did the British Empire. The USA with little wars may exhaust itself too. It may also exhaust its allies.
The attitudes and action of the majority of the people in this great nation surely point to similarities with the Roman Empires collapse. Self-entitlements.....addictions.....lust.....lack of principles and morals.....and, immorality were all contributing factors to the fall of the Roman Empire. Now, this Nation that was once great in principles and morals has reached a point of unconcern for anything but self.....surely when such pride and arrogance exist collectively a fall is evident.
Yes, as far as bowing before the papacy. Many don't know this, but the papal power AND the United States are both mentioned inthe Bible. Study the book of Revelation in your Bible. It is written in symbology, but when scripture is put to use one will clearly come to discover that those who choose to bow down to the papacy will reciever the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:15)
In Revelation chapter 13, there are many things that stand for certain people and places. For example "heads" symbolize major powers/rulers/governments; "horns" symbolize a king or kingdom; "crown" symbolize rulership; the woman in the bible is of course the church; but in Revelation 17:1-2 is revealed a harlot, who symbolizes churches that preach false doctrines taken from God's Truth and perversely twisted to mean other than what God said. "dragon" symbolizes satan (Revelation 20:2). Back in Revelation 13:11, we read of a beast coming up out of the EARTH with two horns and who spoke like a dragon. This is the united states. When this country was first founded, it was founded upon pure, biblical morals; this country was purely equal opportunity and "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" (remember those?) were some of the basic founding principles. But as time went by, and with the protestant reformation in the 1700's, some of those from rome and the surrounding country who stood up against the then papal power of Rome fled here to the U.S. and began living according to scripture. The protestants stood up against the vatican because they were clearly in league with satan, because they taught many false doctrines then that they still employ even now as you read this. Again, I type before God in Heaven that I am telling you the solemn truth as recorded in the Scriptures. Do research on this. Also, even the vatican admits that sunday is not the sabbath, that sunday is not the Lord's day that God commanded us to keep Holy-- it's saturday. Read Exodus 20:8-11 and then look at your calendar. Also go to www.romeschallenge.com and do some scrolling down and there you will find that the vatican admits they are full of lies. Doctrines that the vatican teaches that are NOT Scriptural, not according to God's truth are: Virgin Mary as mediator (1 Timothy 2:5) Idol worship (Exodus 20:3-7) sprinkling in baptism (Mark 1:9-10). Baptism comes from the greek word "baptizo" meaning "immersion". Go ahead, look it up! Email me and i will write more. the comment box is running out of room.
I am curious, are you a Seventh Day Adventist?
Yes. And I am aware of the rumors circulating and those are from people who do not do ACTUAL research for themselves; They google "seventh-day adventists" and believe the first few things they see. I believe the bible and I answer from the bible.
i was also raised in the SDA church, but then I rebelled against all Christianity. Now since I am Christian I am starting to realize that many thing that E.G. White prophesied has come to pass.

There are a lot of theories as to the collapse of the Roman Empire but one that seems to have legs they is that they over extended their resourses for far too many years and in directions that were not profitable for the empire.

The bible states that the beast had two horns like a lamb, but a mouth that speak great blasphemy! On the surface it appears to be the Church of Christ, but on close inspection one see that this beast with horns like a lamb is the enemy of Jesus. This beast places a woman the ahead of Jesus Christ,...
