Well, there's hope for us Brits.

You'd think by now that people would at least accept the absurdity of an Abrahamic god.

Alas, just 150 years ago, exhausting all the **other** choices did not mean global catastrophe.

Not so much, these days....

Qualities of a True Prophet of God:

R. Eighteenth Quality: The age of Prophethood has come to an end:

This is again a controversial subject and I do not demand that every one must accept it.

The reality is that age of prophethood has come to an end and no significant prophet has risen in the world for past 1400 years. There have only been localized movements where some one claimed prophet hood, but it was never a Universal phenomenon and no major religion has come into the world since that date.

Many people might not agree with me and I do not find fault with them when I say that closing the door of Prophethood was indeed an act of Mercy by the Most Merciful and Most Gracious God, because it saved human society forever from deciding on every “New” prophet!!

As mentioned earlier, A prophet lives as long as his message and his teachings are alive, and it so happened that Life and Teachings and Message of the Last Prophet in the chain was preserved intact and in Great Details for succeeding generation.

Every one can close the time gap and listen to the message which was given 1400 years back in the same language and verbatim without any change. So in reality The Last Prophet is living and talking before them and there is no excuse for them to say to God that they did not get the message.

In other words we can say that Last and Final Prophet of God is still alive and living with us, because of the detailed and minute information which we have about him than any other personality in this world.

It is only for people to ask and seek and they will get the info…. So no one shall have excuse before God that sufficient info was not available to them.

It says in the NT that a house divided against itself will not stand. This describes Christianity. Every time somebody comes up with a new theology, they write a new version of the bible. The NT says whatever you want it to say. It is also "wind and confusion" anyway. Jesus is not God, he is the modern day idol of Israel and he is prophesied in the OT as such. The final prophet, the Messiah is here on earth and will appear at any moment. Everyone in the world will convert to either Christianity (sons of darkness) or the Truth (sons of light). We will all witness the bible (OT) completely and literally fulfilled.

I see you have been good, and earned some time on the institution's public computer again.

It's time for your medication, though.

I haven't been in a hospital since January, 1986. 27 years. But the doctors love to study me, I'm a worldwide famous case history since the early eighties, under a pseudonym of course. I am not delusional. I've had the best medical care and my doctors conclusion after his presentation on me was "You can't change character" I happen to disagree but I cannot be changed. "...For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed" Malachi 3:6. It's been just over 30 years since my calling began ....so anytime now.

In the future, governments will look back at this era and wonder how they let so many mentally ill people destroy society.

There will be clinics where chronic religious liars can get help, like AA, but without the made up higher power.
