And the fifth sign shall be sweetened popcorn

People tend not to give me religious tracts. I'm not entirely sure why - perhaps they don't like what they hear of my conversation as I walk down a street; perhaps I don't look like the sort of person they want in their religion; perhaps I am actually invisible. But on tuesday as I walked to college a man at a street corner handed me this, and I took it.



Unlike many other religious tracts, this one merely lays out the totally scientific evidence for you, the reader, to put together.

The first page tells the story of a reckless driver who refuses to listen to warnings on the car radio about a collapsed bridge because he is too busy listening to the sports news. His car plunges into the water and he dies. (This is a metaphor).

A long list of signs and warnings that are being ignored follows. This includes violence, rape, terrorism, AIDS, and the like. However, the really convincing argument for the coming apocalypse?

By the way, this mad rush was foretold by Daniel 2,500 years ago, as evidence of "THE TIME OF THE END" (Dan 12:4); "Many shall run (rush) to and fro".
"The travel industry is now the biggest industry in the world.

Other problems

Sex Manipulation: "For this and some sort of sex manipulation taking place between fallen angels and women in Noah's day, God's judgement was to wipe them all off with a flood, except Noah and his family who trusted in Him. Weird experiments that are taking place today.

Mice: (As a part of the Animal-Human Hybrid section) "Inside their brains are living human neurons that help them to see, hear and think".

Gay people: (This is a long section, encompassing most of the booklet)
New York got a powerful warning in the destruction of the Twin Towers, but this was wirth the hands of evil men, but I think a judgement on the extremely perverting influence flowing out of Hollywood and San Francisco could be a mighty earthquake and tsunami to hit the West coast of the USA. but not at all limited to that area.

Sex teaching in schools is fanning the fires of passion in young people. A report in Newsweek says "They have gay assemblies, with speakers extolling the virtues of gayhood", and go on to say how gay pop idols "Help promote experimentation among teenagers. Kids today are willing to try just about anything".

...talented and professional people are often involved. Playing a leading part in this is the increasing Occult and Satanic activity, promoted and fanned on by the Internet and similar electronic devices.

There is no account of Homosexual or Lesbian marriage in Sodom, yet suddenly now hundreds of thousands of couples are lining up to take vows and go through a ceremony which, until how, has been the right of a man and woman only.

AIDS + tourism: "It began with the Homosexuals and by illicit sex spread to the Heterosexuals too, so that the increasingly rapid world travel adds to the increasingly rapid spread of AIDS."

The Church, now the laughing stock of demons: "Instead of boldly proclaiming what God says about this, they are ordaining practising homosexual men and women to the highest offices in the churches and helping promote the cause of the Antichrist religions which are aggressively aiming to take over these Christianized lands.
An apologetic, compromising Church must be the laughing stock of demons and scornful men, and to the Lord Himself it must be as he said of the Church in Laodicea, "Because you are lukewarm, I will spue you out of my mouth".

The Mark: "The long talked-of MARK has been developing in unexpected ways and could soon become universal REALITY. Don't be fearful, but be careful what you sign.

Global Warming: I wasn't aware that this was still an issue, what with the sudden rise in piracy. It is clear that pastafarianism is an Antichrist Religion.


Yet with all this, there is hope. The writer (a representative of End Time Ministries, located in Kilkenny) wants to be saved, and he hopes you will be too.

I eagerly await the "viva la evolution" bag I ordered from the chumbawamba website.
The religious groups in this country are going rather overboard now it's Charlie's year. tsch.

I can see why you're disappointed that you don't get handed these things more often.

I'm not convinced by all of this pamphlet (maybe one needs to read it in its full form), but that quote from Daniel + travel industry stat is pretty damning...

p.s. I'd be tempted to respond to a pamphlet like this by saying, "Yes, I definitely think this is a sign of the apocalypse." Only, I don't think the pamphlet-hander-outer would get it.
