Ok, so the following article tells us about a “sign” in the sky that people immediatedly want to call an angel. When confessed Christians are quick to jump on the band wagon with this sort of thing, no wonder the Atheists see us as a bunch of kooks. The same people who see this as a “sign” would be the very same people who see the Virgin Mary in their grill cheese sandwich, the same people who would believe gold dust and angel feathers are in their worship services.
I think what is happening is people are so desperate to believe in something, that they would believe anything. As long as it brings them the warm fuzzys. My question, especially to confessed Christians: if you say angel, why can’t I call it a devil? A lying sign and wonder. For all we know HAARP could have made it or it could be a hologram. OR, it could even be a sign from Satan. If Satan’s ministers transform themselves into angels of light, then is it never possible that he could even do this to get people to follow “signs and wonders” all in the name of some kind of spirituality?
Just hours after white smoke signaled that a new pope was named some South Floridians saw a different sign of faith in the sky.
Diane Barnwell was among them. She snapped a photo resembling an angel outside of the mall in Wellington.
“It looks like an angel to me, it really, really does.(laughs),” she said.
Which is why Diane grabbed her cell phone and snapped a few photos.
“I thought ‘wow, this is really something, you know?’ It made me feel like something is watching over us. And I know the pope was elected yesterday so maybe that was a sign that God is happy with what’s happened.”
A pontifical prophecy? Or just a cirrus cloud at sunset? Or……even a hoax?
Count Jessica Haislip among the skeptical. “I think the photos could’ve been photo-shopped because I tend to be more scientific minded and question things more.”
The photos instantly went viral. Social media has been bursting with different opinions.
Raymond Russo of St. Ann Catholic Church in West Palm Beach sees a different spiritual leader in that cloud.
“To me it looks like Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit all in one, coming to give us a message of good tidings.”
Father Nestor Rodriguez is the pastor St. Ann Catholic Church, he says, “Obviously people will see different things, but I think if it’s significant for people of faith…if it gives us inspiration…glory to God!”
I see nothing in this that brings glory to God. What I do see is just another hap-hazard sign that is preparing a sea of people to accept the final and the grandest delusion to ever hit the earth.
