Papacy

  • Čovjek Bezakonja

    Biblijska su proročanstva predvidjela “Čovjeka Bezakonja,” Antikrista. Mnogi tumače ta proročanstva u smislu što očekuju da to treba biti jedan svjetski vođa koji će se pojaviti u budućnosti. I zatim tu su drugi koji teoretiziraju da je ta osoba bio Car Neron i zaključuju da su se sva ta proročanstva ispunila 70 A.D. Ako je ijedna od ovih teorija istinita – naime, da je Antikrist kratko vladao 70 A.D. (ili) da će se pojaviti u dalekoj budućnosti – to bi tada učinilo veliki dio povijesti crkve (2000 godina) nebitnom. To nema puno smisla. Da li je to ono što Biblija doista kaže?

  • Daughters of Babylon

    If the true Church was always in the wilderness (not mainstream), persecuted by the Papacy throughout the 1260 years of the reign of the Man of Lawlessness (the Anti-Christ), then what about the Reformation Era’s famous Protestant churches? Weren’t they any good? Didn't they protest the Papacy's unbiblical heresies and come out of that system? Does the Bible have any prophecies on that particular time period in church history? If so, how were they fulfilled?

  • Kćeri Babilona

    Ako je prava Crkva uvijek bila u pustinji (ne glavnom strujom), progonjena od Papinstva tokom 1260 godina vladavine Čovjeka Bezakonja (Antikrista), što onda reći o slavnoj Reformacijskoj eri Protestantskih crkava? Nije li bilo išta dobra u njima? Nisu li one protestirale protiv Papinskih nebiblijskih hereza i izišle iz tog sistema? Ima li u Bibliji ikakvih proročanstava o tom naročitom vremenskom razdoblju u povijesti crkve? Ako da, kako su se ona ispunila?

  • The Man of Lawlessness

    Biblical prophecies forecast a "Man of Lawlessness", an Anti-Christ. Many interpret the prophecies and expect him to be a world leader who is to rise in the future. And then there are others who theorize that person as Emperor Nero and conclude that all those prophecies got fulfilled in 70 AD. If either of those theories are true - i.e. the Anti-Christ had a quick reign in 70 AD (or) he is supposed to rise only in the far far future - then that would make the majority of church history (2000-odd years) irrelevant. That doesn't make much sense. Is that what the Bible really says?
