Christians get the word of Jesus from the bible, and the apostles to be more exact...

depending on which apostle they put more faith in is what decides what they think about what is "supposed to happen"



Some christians Believe that John wrote revelations (even though it goes against everything he preached, used different vocabulary and sentence structure and was probably written hundreds years after the gospel of john) and that it shows that an end time is going to come...

Others believe that Jesus brought the kingdom of heaven to earth and that whole "end time" thing is never going to happen or already has and we have to work with the earth we were given, and make "heaven as it is on earth"...



Being a christian does not mean you think the world is going to end...

I don't think catholics believe in the rapture. I grew up catholic and there was nevr any mention of this. My mother is a very religious catholic and her twin suster teachers at a catholic school....and neither have ever believed there will ever be a rapture.

What is this rapture everyone is talking about?  Judgement day?  Because God only knows when that will be.  I have made my own interpretations and believe that this is the life between Heaven and Hell.  We are judged here and when we have proved ourselves and are done as God wishes with us He will take us with him, or deem us to hell.  Although I don't think he will send us to hell.  I think that Satan will take those to hell and God those who want to follow him to heaven.  That is just my opinion, not sure of the exact reasoning of my thoughts, just what I believe.

you don't agree with investigation into original authors of bible books or you don't like how some christians choose not to believe certain interpretations of what Jesus said?

Or you just don't like the fact that there are different theologies within christianity?

Well "christian" covers a wide variety of religions. Why would they all be the same?

lol, it isn't like the bible was originally written in English.  Things get lost and changed in interpretations....That is why "Christians" pick and choose lol
