There is a huge problem with using Revelations as a source of prophesy. It breaks one of the major rules against something being a proper prophesy, it is not clear.

Did Nostradamus make proper prophesies? Of course not, his prophesies were to vague, they had multiple possible outcomes. The same applies to Revelations.

When verses have multiple interpretations not only do you have to justify your own interpretations, you have to show that your interpretation is better than others.

To me that looks very weak since it says a "woman rides the beast". Mary is not the head of the Catholic Church in any way. Nor do I assume that even Adventists believe she went to hell so how could she be the evil woman leading the attack on Christians? You are really stretching when you make that claim.

By the way, the righter of Revelations was very aware of Rome and thought of the Romans as their enemy, not some future religion.

It seems to me that you would have to have a high tolerance for insanity to read all of Revelations and even begin to understand it.

Did the apostles get paid to teach the next generation of teachers?
NO, the did not.
The same is today, the majority of Bible teachers are, in fact, just members, who teach for free.
The Great Commission
Matthew 28
18And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. 19Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and, see, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen.
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
----------
Acts 2:38 Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
----------
Acts 8:16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
----------
Acts 14:21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch,
----------
Romans 6:3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

Kitty you can't even get a simple phrase right. Now it goes;

"All that glitters is not gold"

or

"All that is gold does not glitter"

But to say as you said "Not all things of value are glitter and gold." That is just a big mess up or made up BS from you. LMFAO

You are losing your trollness, for at this moment you have posted a nonsensical word cluster of meaningless drivel. You should consider that your life is meaningless, worthless, useless in the eyes of society you have no value to offer. If you are incapable of at least entertaining us with your trollness, you should consider getting a job.

Again just projection from you because you are ignorant and don't even know a simple phrase saying that has been around for many many years. You are a joke. It has been proven time and time again. Go chase a mouse and be useful. LMFAO

Your lack of culture is deafening. The phrase I used was from a popular cinematic creation, perhaps you should study more, for to be a successful human, you will need more than one source, for one to be a literate person. You have wasted your entire purpose, your entire meaning, your entire life studying from one book, one source, and a source that is of no consequence beyond fueling the delusions and controlling the masses, sending them as sheep to the slaughter. Are you the sheep. or the shepherd, are you mindless food, or the slayer of innocence.

Again all projection. We are talking about "All that glitters is not gold" and "All that is gold does not glitter" two phrases that have nothing to do with the bible but you turn it into something about the bible. You are a big joke. LMAO

Learn to utilize the tools offered you on the same mechanical device you utilize to present your complete and total lack of culture. Considering you could have instead called me on not mentioning the 12th century, or earlier, origin of the phrase, you troglodytes are all of very similar educational levels, lacking in culture and education so much as to make one question if we, as a species, has even progressed beyond that period known as the Dark Ages.

You are using a word that you fail to comprehend the meaning of, or perhaps it is all the words you use for which you lack comprehension. I did not equate the phrase to the bible, but merely pointed out that your statement of them "working without profit" is completely fallacious. As I stated, free is never free, there is always a cost that must be paid. Your preachers, your leaders, your shepherds, are treating you as sheep, and sheep are led to the slaughter.

That does not have your stupid phrase in it. You said "Not all things of value are glitter and gold."

You are just ignorant and again you just show it here. LMAO

Now according to you this is all about evidence of what you say. So I am still waiting for that link where you got your messed up phrase. Link it or shut it.

And yes you did bring the bible into it. here is your post. Notice the last paragraph:

"Your lack of culture is deafening. The phrase I used was from a popular cinematic creation, perhaps you should study more, for to be a successful human, you will need more than one source, for one to be a literate person.

What one book are you referring to?

Making you out as a fool is too easy and you just keep making it easier when you try to keep saying you are right when you are wrong. LMFAO
