We know from the Bible that the Great Tribulation will be a time of disasters and chaos during which the ones who did not choose God until the Rapture will experience famine, war, pain and diseases.The Bible, however, doesn’t offer details regarding this period, so, as a layman, you’re wondering if these are just metaphors. Mc Quate clearly explains what the word “tribulation” really means, along with some other terms that we’ve heard many times before, but were never sure of their meaning – “Matrix”, “Repentance”.
Because he does this, he's been able to uncover things that, in my experience (and I'm an avid reader and web surfer), are simply not available anywhere else.Once it is proven to our God-given reason that the Bible is strictly a man-made collection of mythology the mind loses yet another shackle of "revelation" and is soon on its way to full freedom and progress.The Bible was not handed to mankind by God, nor was it dictated to human stenographers by God. In actuality, the Bible was to be the word of God by a group of men during the 4th century.According to Professor John Crossan of Biblical Studies at De Paul University the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great (274-337 CE), (a bust of Constantine is pictured below) who was the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity, needed a single canon to be agreed upon by the Christian leaders to help him unify the remains of the Roman Empire.Until this time the various Christian leaders could not decide which books would be considered "holy" and thus "the word of God" and which ones would be excluded and not considered the word of God.Mc Quate’s book was: “and I thought I knew some things about the Bible”.As someone who was raised and educated as a Christian, I decided long ago to read the Bible myself and this endeavor led to my desire to understand as much as possible by also reading reference books that promised to reveal the secrets of the Holy Book.He explains things in a way that makes things `click' in your mind and you say, `ahh, now I get it' and I think that's really rare these days.He explains the real origins of man, where DNA came from, what spiritual significance it has, what lies we've all been told regarding the Bible, the Rapture and more.Some of them were truly thought-provoking, others were less satisfying.Nonetheless, I didn’t give up my hope of finding a book that would shed light upon some of the hidden messages of the Bible. Mc Quate’s book, “The Tribulation”, which I read in one sit and then went back to re-read the parts that fascinated me and left me wondering.
