Wow, that's a very interesting prophecy o_O Astoundingly accurate.

 

Authenticity and skepticism

 

Spanish writer father Benito Jerónimo Feijóo wrote in his Teatro Crítico Universal (1724–1739), in an entry called Purported prophecies, that the ones by Saint Malachy's were a shameful forgery, claiming that they were created ad hoc during the 16th century. As a proof, he offers an accurate fact: that the first time the prophecy is mentioned is on a handwritten account by patriarch Alfonso Chacón (a.k.a Alphonsus Ciacconus, 1540–1599) in 1590 (this account would be later published, in 1595, by the abovementioned historian Arnold de Wyon); in this account, Chacón only comments the prophecies until the papacy of Urban VII (whose papacy only lasted September 1590, and was the current pope at the time Chacón wrote the comment). According to Feijóo, Chacón, who held a great intellectual prestige at the time, was lured to comment the prophecies by someone who wanted to help cardinal Girolamo Simoncelli (1522–1605) reach the papacy. By showing them to be accurate till Urban VII, it was expected people to believe the next ones; that way, Girolamo Simoncelli could be easily elected pope, since the prophecy after Urban VII's one tells about a pope Ex antiquitate urbis (from the antiquity of the city), a fact that seems to fit him, who was cardinal of Orvieto (literally "old city", urbs vetus), or at least better than Gregory XIV, who was elected pope after Urban VII. Thus, the forgery would have been useless, since Simoncelli was not elected pope. Jesuit father Claude-François Menestrier also claimed that the prophecies were forged in order to help the papal candidacy of Girolamo Simoncelli, offering similar reasons to those of Feijóo. Spanish historian José Luis Calvo points out that the prophecies seem to be very accurate till Urban VII, fitting perfectly even the antipopes, but that afterwards great efforts have to be made in order to make the prophecies fit their pope. Feijóo's explanation is usually regarded as being the most probable proof of the forgery.

 

Accurate? lol k

most "christian" groups don't exactly believe the same thing anyways.

 

 

It would be amusing to lock a Catholic, Baptist, Mormon, Jehovas Witness and someone from the church of god in the same room to discuss theology.

 

Don't forget an atheist.

Atheists aren't christians.

This smells like an advertising thread. Nevertheless, the view outside my window lacks fire and brimstone so I'm skeptical of this prophecy.

Would be a diaster then - the others wouldn't focus on theology, but conversion.

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

The cardinal that chooses his pope name to be Peter is going to be one cocky [bleep].

 

I just can't see it happening.

Conceding for the sake of argument that God does exist and that Jesus will one day return, what do you really think would happen? If someone all of a sudden started claiming he was the son of God come back to life, would we all bow down in worship or would we send him to counseling and probably have him committed to a mental hospital?

 

Besides, Jesus doesn't need to come back and save us; Sam and Dean Winchester already saved us from the Apocalypse.

Well Zeus and Odin are supposed to come back as well. And Odin has an entire army behind him when he comes back at the end of the world, Jesus got nothin'.

First off, your signature has the quote "why are you so surprised I came back?" in it, and that made me laugh due to the topic.

 

Secondly, this is actually an interesting question. The most interesting answer, I think anyway, is actually the Muslim answer: that Jesus (who is not the son of God but merely a prophet) will return to the earth upon the eruption of a war between muslims and non-muslims (which arguably, we already have - though it's hard to argue) and that Jesus will fight on behalf of the Muslims, bringing with him a terrible beast to destroy the non-believers.

 

I think that, if Jesus were to really return to this earth without slaughtering us all, he'd have a very difficult time of convincing us it was him. There is a quote somewhere in the bible of him saying 'I am not a show magician' or something similar, so I think he'd refuse to do so and therefore be labelled a "looney".

Is this before or after the eventual zombie apocalypse? If a big chunk of Earth's population gets Rapture'd away before the zombies happen, we lose quite a few otherwise capable fighters against them.

All I know about the mechanics of Ragnarok comes from Age of Mythology, but if it's anything like that, we're not quite as screwed.
