Second Coming of Christ will be on YouTube, Twitter

"Social media could have a big part" in the Second Coming of Christ, evangelist Franklin Graham said in an interview that aired Sunday.

"I believe there's no question, I believe we're in the latter days of this age," Graham told ABC's Christiane Amanpour. "When I say latter days, could it be the last 100 years or the last 1,000 years or the last 6 months, I don't know, but the Bible, the things that the Bible predicts, earthquakes and famines, nation rising against nation, we see this happening with more frequency."

"So what will the Second Coming look like?" Amanpour wondered.

Lets imagine for a moment that Christ is some kind of spiritual being and he will descent to the Earth someday....Then what? Under the light of buddhism, Christ wouldnt bring any Dharma and any teachings driving us to Nirvana. Maybe he would teach some good moral precepts, maybe he could have some powers to bring "physical" happyness (food, health, etc) to people and that would be great, but not so great as what Shakyamuni Buddha did.

Wonder if he forgot the Gospel of St Matthew Chapter 24:23-26, 36
Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Behold, I have told you before.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.


This was the one who called Islam "a very evil and wicked religion", "True Islam cannot be practiced in this country", the recent 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan is "maybe" the second coming and Armageddon and his preferred choice for the Republican nomination for the 2012 US presidential race is Donald Trump?

This is worth quoting in full.

THE SECOND COMING

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?


W.B. Yeats, 1919
