imagine, you can't just make all of these false claims without somebody calling bullshit on you.

Where does it prophesize that the Catholic Church would try to replace Jesus with Mary. I don't think they have. They do offer her special reverence since she was supposed to be Jesus' mother. But they did not make her a god.

Are you listening to those idiots from the SDA again?

I do know the reason we have 7 days in a week is because God created everything in 7 days (prophetic days means 1 day = 1000 years)
We also calculate our time in years (BC and AD) from before the Messiah came to earth and after He was born.

Nope the mythology states 6 days.

No, seriously they don't. Please, when you make a claim like "99.9% of protestant church ministers work for FREE" you have to substantiate it with some sort of link or we will point out that you are breaking the Ninth Commandment.
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?

RCC says they forgive sins (WRONG) by telling people to say "HAIL MARY" many times over (blasphemy)

Didn't Hitler have the masses say "Hail Hitler" to him also?

hmmm.....

don't the RCC pray to man-made statues that they, themselves have named as 'saint' this or that?(idol worship)

A woman rides the beast, and that woman is a city built on seven hills that reigns over the kings of the earth! Was ever in all of history such a statement made? John immediately equates the readers' acceptance of this revelation with "wisdom." We dare not pass over such a disclosure casually. It merits our careful and prayerful attention.

Here is no mystical or allegorical language but an unambiguous statement in plain words: "The woman ... is that great city." There is no justification for seeking some other hidden meaning. Yet books have been written and sermons preached insisting that "Mystery Babylon" is the United States. That is clearly not the case, for the United States is a country, not a city. One might justifiably refer to the United States as Sodom, considering the honor now given to homosexuals, but it is definitely not the Babylon that John sees in this vision. The woman is a city.

Furthermore, she is a city built on seven hills. That specification eliminates ancient Babylon. Only one city has for more than 2000 years been known as the city on seven hills. That city is Rome. The Catholic Encyclopedia states: "It is within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State proper is now confined."1

There are, of course, other cities, such as Rio de Janeiro, that were also built on seven hills. Therefore, John provides at least seven more characteristics to limit the identification to Rome alone. We will examine each one in detail in subsequent chapters. However, as a preview of where we are going, we will list them now and discuss each one briefly. As we shall see, there is only one city on the earth which, in both historical and contemporary perspectives, passes every test John gives, including its identification as Mystery Babylon. That city is Rome, and more specifically, Vatican City.

Even Catholic apologist Karl Keating admits that Rome has long been known as Babylon. Keating claims that Peter's statement "The church here in Babylon ... sends you her greeting" (from I Peter 5:13) proves that Peter was writing from Rome. He explains further:

"Babylon is a code word for Rome. It is used that way six times in the last book of the Bible [four of the six are in chapters 17 and 18 and in extrabiblical works such as Sibylling Oracles (5, 159f.), the Apocalypse of Baruch (ii, 1), and 4 Esdras (3:1).
Eusebius Pamphilius, writing about 303, noted that "it is said that Peter's first epistle... was composed at Rome itself; and that he himself indicates this, referring to the city figuratively as Babylon."2

As for "Mystery," that name imprinted on the woman's forehead is the perfect designation for Vatican City. Mystery is at the very heart of Roman Catholicism, from the words "Mysterium fide" pronounced at the alleged transformation of the bread and wine into the literal body and blood of Christ to the enigmatic apparitions of Mary around the world. Every sacrament, from baptism to extreme unction, manifests the mysterious power which the faithful must believe the priests wield, but for which there is no visible evidence. Rome's new Catechism explains that liturgy "aims to initiate souls into the mystery of Christ (It is 'mystagogy.')" and that all of the Church's liturgy is "mystery."3

Have you ever heard of 'spiritual warfare"?
or that satan is the 'prince of this world', who is cunning, scheming and smart enough to deceive this world?
Satan began his work against God's Word from the very beginning. He deceived the people who named the days of the week into worshipping false god's, planets, stars, the sun, the moon and statues.
There are still many people who worship these false god's (secretly) but they only do it to receive powers from the evil one. These powers will not satisfy and will end someday, and they will regret ever following satan.
Oh yeah, that reminds me, RCC worships statues of 'men'(saints they named) and 'women'(mary). They have also tried to replace Jesus (God in the flesh) with Mary (a mere human)....
this is also spelled out and prophesied in the Bible that will happen..and
today it's happening right before your eyes and you still can't seem to grasp it.
Satan has deceived the whole world, through his false messiah, Jesus. They believe his lie in the garden of Eden, "You can sin against God and not keep his commandments, and you won't die". Ezekiel 13:22 "...and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life". Christians believe the wicked go to heaven as long as they believe in Jesus. Their god is "kind to the unthankful and to the evil"

If you would open you scaled filled eyes, and look around you, compare what the Holy Bible says about earth and heaven, you MIGHT see that the Bible is true and that man is nothing but a purposely created being.
You guys want to deny God but can't explain how everything came to be.....
Oh well, the Bible does say there will be many unbelievers like you guys that will have hard heads and hard hearts and will only come around at the end, when it's too late.
I don't see that humans are purpose built to be robotic sycophants to an undetectable man-like paranoid manic depressive supernatural being. It has nothing to do with my "scaled filled eyes" and everything to do with your self-inflicted brain rot.

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.
