I've read some posts regarding the Bible and several statements by posters that the "end times" are soon to come, referring to the predictions made in the book of Revelation. This is protestant theology.
There significant historical evidence and logic that strongly suggests that the 'End times' happened already. The Book of Revelation deals not with the future but rather with the past struggle and eventual triumph of the Christian Church over the Roman Empire.
This however does not fit with many protestant ideologies and theologies and is ignored. Further, it strongly suggests that the Orthodox and/or Roman Catholic churches are the legitimate churches of Christ as it is through them that Christianity eventually outlasts the Roman Empire.
