  • I don’t know why someone would venture to predict “2,000 deaths will occur.”. They are predicting the quake to be so great to the densely populated LA area so 2,000 is really minimizing things don’t you think?

    • Pay no attention to Jesus's promise that he would return during the lifetime of his apostles. Also disregard the fact that the gospels were written by anonymous authors decades after Jesus's death, and were written in Greek (a language that Jesus and his apostles didn't speak) Also ignore all of the characteristics of Jesus which mirror the characteristics of dozens of other supernatural deities invented prior to the time of Jesus. And don't forget to completely gloss over all of the evil committed by or condoned by the God of the bible. Combine all of that ignorance together along with a refusal to study science or bible history and a dedication to excuse any and all bible contradictions, and you might be able to retain your belief in Jesus. 🙏 Best of luck!

  • So many of you don't believe in God because people have told you he's false or not real. You people are whom we pray for. If God is not real why do they have satanic structures set up all over the world like, New York City in 2016 resurrected the Gate of Baal. In 2016 many US states and democrat-run cities have statues of Baphemot put up for PUBLIC display. Please WAKE UP Brothers and Sisters

  • Yet people continue to live there. They know it's coming but they don't care. So when it happens, I don't want to hear jack from California. Get your family and yourselves in a more stable environment. How simple is that? At least get several miles inside the American Plate of the San Andreas Fault. I live in Myrtle Beach, but I'm several miles from the coast. I don't have to worry about storm surge during a hurricane. And I did this on purpose because planning ahead will save your life. They just built 2 new nfl stadiums. And where were they built? Close to the fault line.
