Re: More Proof that End Time Prophecy is just nonsense.
The EU has 27 Member States.

I was a fundamentalist Christian during the '70s. At that time, the EU did, in fact, have 10 members, and that was the "proof" that the EU (or the EEC, as I believe it was known as at that time) was linked to the Antichrist.

I've always found it interesting that this linkage became so established among most Dispensationalists, even though many more members have been added since then (notably Greece, Spain, and Portugal in the '80s, which should, I would have thought, have ended this linkage).

Added by edit:
Oops. Just checking, and it was Greece that raised the membership to 10 in 1981. Spain and Portugal then joined in '86.

I wonder which 10 of the 27+ members are supposed to be the ones who are truly running things?

Re: Logical conclusions
Yes there are 27 nations in the EU but there are only 10 that have any veto rights and therefore they control the movement of the EU.

Could you tell us which 10 nations these are? And can you link to the relevant documents that govern the EU? I'm sure that the relevant treaties and such are posted on line; and since English is one of the official languages of the EU, then these treaties should have English versions posted.

Thanks.

Re: Logical conclusions
Hi, Taz.

CWHJr. isn't talking about the United Nations. He is talking about the European Union. As far as I know, the EU doesn't have anything like the security council. I can think of three member nations that are large and powerful enough that they wield a huge de facto influence over EU policy, but finding ten kings is going to be quite a stretch.

I don't think that the UN Security Council really counts, anyway. There are 15 members total, and in any event, ten of them serve for temprorary terms. Only five are permanent, and these are the ones that have the power.

However, your point is taken. John the Revelator chose the number 10 in his fascinating heavily-coded riddle, and human beings are going to set up a lot of institutions based on the number 10. You are correct that it isn't going to be hard for the faithful to find candidates for the 10 kings.

Re: Logical conclusions
Or how toothless they'll be when they clone their invincible secret mutant army.

As jar said, what the hell are you talking about?

Okay, I took a few liberties with jar's quote.
