Are We Doomed?

Updated on August 31, 2014

The hub title seems to be quite ironic.

Of course we are doomed. We have raped and plundered the Earth and our fate will be doomsday. Ask the Mayans and ask Nostradamus.

There is oil and radiation killing life in the ocean and will soon, if not already, kill those on land.

So why not run out and do whatever we feel? Act however we want?

Because of Him:

The First Sin

When sin entered this world, doomsday for us also entered. God didn't do this to us; we managed all this death and destruction quite well on our own.

So why didn't God just stop it and make it right?

Because He loves us!

Would it be love to control us like puppets on a string? Would it be love to not give us freewill?

Our doomsday is near arrival and what should we do?

Should we hide in caves?

Should we stockpile food and ammunition?

Does God's Word say to get fearful and do those things?

I think NOT!

Fearmongering

I have been guilty of it. The news is full of it; the internet has waves of it.

FEAR!

If our faith is pure and true, we have nothing to fear. The man depicted in the video took upon Himself all our sins and impurities.

Our Earthly bodies are still ravaged with sin, disease and other impurities, so this Earthly body must go at some point. That is all that is doomed if you have accepted the free gift Jesus gave you-GRACE!

Heaven and Hell

There has been much discussion lately on the actual existence in Heaven and Hell. I'm no scholar or theologian, but I know there is both! We have the simple choice on where we go.

God created Hell in love. Pure love. He created Hell, because that is where many want to go for some odd reason. In God's love, he has given the masses what they desire, even though it hurts Him to do so.

Prayer of Salvation

Father God,

I am unworthy of all you have to offer me. My sins overwhelm me and I am desperate to have them wiped clean. You allowed Your precious Son to take my sins upon Him that day in Calvary. You taught me there IS life after sin when you raised Jesus 3 days later to sit at Your right hand.

I ask your mercy and grace upon me my Lord. I ask Your Holy Blood to cleanse my unholy soul. I give you thanks and may I live as You would want and complete the mission you have for me.

In Jesus Name,

AMEN

The Mission

Everyone of us were born a pure child with no sin. We were born with distinct talents and a mission from our Heavenly Father. Some will complete their mission, some partially and some will not attempt it at all. Most, I believe don't know what their missions are.

As I type this hub, I see the mission God laid upon me even more clear.

NO FEAR-JUST TRUTH!

Going to a certain church won't save you. Getting baptized won't save you. Giving 10-20-30% of your income won't save you. I can't save you; Oprah can't save you; and believe it or not, Dr. Phil cannot save you. Being "good" won't do it; none of us are "good" anyway.

Only Jesus can save you. Cry out to Him!

      Tell him Froggy! I would like to know what 'evidence and facts' hippy is talking about... the Big Bang theory still leaves the question, "Where did the matter and energy come from in the first place?" He says we are brainwashing children, and yet I am sure he would be the first to vote AGAINST teaching a second 'theory' of how we came into existence - Creationism. Isn't teaching only one possibility 'brainwashing'? We serve a mighty God - if He created all of existence by setting in motion "The Big Bang" who am I to question His methods?!?

      Sometimes I feel we are really doomed. I pray this world will get better. According to the Bible when we are in our last days, it will be some really tough times. That's part of our problem so many only think about God and the Bible when things are bad. If we truly believe in God and the Bible how could we not chose to serve him everyday.

      God is the ultimate spouse for any of us, the ultimate lover of our souls, as he died and would have died for just one person, not all of us. He's said to love us so much it hurts, as it hurt to die for us, but die he did gladly.

      Beautiful beautiful , beautiful

      What greater love hath man, than to lay down his life for his friends?

      I see , more clearly than ever, how important it is to have a close bond with God, with Jesus, as He is the one who cares always every minute of the day, the video spares no details, (kudos to Mel Gibson) I've seen it before, but it's never too old to watch and see what our creator did for me.

      It's "unbelieveable", and it's this movie, this story, that (factually happened) that converts sinners, and amazes skeptics....

      The only way we can really relate to Him is thru the sufferings in our own lives, what blessings they are, as they make us stronger and we can unite them to His, we can feel his pain in a way, and comprehend what he did...

      So when we have suffering, let us try to say, as he did, "Not my will but yours be done Lord."

      Yes, we are living in a doomed world of sin, though doomed it's not in two ways, 1) God will restore it and 2) we are never doomed with Jesus Christ as our savior, being one with him makes us triumphant! We can overcome as he did, he overcame the world.

      I love it. Awesome post my friend. I feel sorry for the quaker guy posting on here though. At least the Bible has hope. His idealist make believe lifestyle leaves no hope whatsoever. Must be hard to live knowing that in the end you just die. Jesus is not only hope but gives life eternally. Forever. He says brainwashing children? With hope? No suffering? No anger like he has. Talk about not making any sense. lol

      It is people like yourself who are killing and maiming Christians in other countries for their beliefs. I never ever had anything to say on any of yours, but you feel an overwhelming desire to voice your BS on mine.

      You have shown your level--go smoke another 1 man--people will see through it. This only enforces the Truth.

      The biggest difference between you and I:

      I still care about you, you could give a rat's behind about me, and that is ok.

      Good luck dude, cause right now, luck is all you have.

      Here we go with the accusations of attacks and bullying. Its not my fault if you are offended by my questions.

      Feel free to "attack" my hubs. They are there for opinions and comments.

      What beliefs of mine are you talking about? The ones that are based on evidence and facts? Because I certainly dont harbour any unfounded ones like yours.

      I think people teaching this nonsense publicly and freely in places that are accessible to children is wrong and should not be allowed.

      Children should not be subject to brainwashing and I have no reason whatsoever to respect such assertions.

      As for me respecting or disrespecting you, again, it is not my fault if you are offended by me questionning your thought process.

      But thanks for responding in kind by attacking me. An eye for an eye? What a great moral from a great book.

      Oh, I do make my own decisions, as you do yours.

      I have never attacked your hubs, why do you attack mine?

      Do you feel threatened? why is that?

      I would say you have a lot to learn to.

      I have some respect for "atheists", but you, I don't.

      To attack with your beliefs upon mine shows your level of maturity. Are you 14 or 15?

      You're not supposed to believe what anyone says. Cant you make up your mind for yourself? Why cant you study the facts for yourself? Do you need everything to be told to you to see what you believe?

      I dont want you to believe me on my word. Go and LEARN something instead of being a sheep.

      The earth wont be here forever. It's going to be enveloped by the sun eventually if it is not struck by an asteroid and totally obliterated first.

      The bible is nonsense by the way. God created the WHOLE universe just so we could live on this spec of a planet.

      :LOL:
