In reply to Lou's reply to Dena-alwelkshphvgnasry, posted by Lou Pilder on January 20, 2008, at 12:26:56

I have come to believe/understand, that the book of Revelation is an apocalyptic writing... not meant to be taken literally. It's meant to be mysterious unless one has eyes to see, and hears to hear.

How humorous, and even sad it is when some take it literally, and then we get such things as the "Left Behind" books and movies...

I used to take it literally myself, and the result of that was that I lived in fear...

I'm now coming to understand the generosity of God's mercy, and His lavish gift of atonement, that I believe now is far more-encompassing than I once was taught.

Does this list of letters in the subject line mean anything, Lou? "alwelkshphvgnasry" And I notice that there are other letters in the previous post...

Anyway, please continue, systematically, and I will continue to read, and pray that I have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Shalom, Dena
