Can you summarize it?

Also, funeral doom is my favorite genre now :)

I used to play Doom. Yikes, what a scary game. At least I thought it was for its time.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

A few highlights...

I don't believe in using scripture as a means of proving/disproving/inventing scientific theories.

He claims that the age to come will be a restoration to before the flood (while the world was in a fallen state for quite some time before the flood).

He claims people will live longer (not eternally) in the new creation.

Quote
So the first day God moved over the ball of water and created light so He could see what He was doing,

He uses Matt 3:11-12 to support his end times theory when those verses have never been understood by anyone in the context that he places them in.

Orthodoxy doesn't believe in a pre-tribulational rapture.

then you will be Raptured up with Christ and His Second coming, and you will not experience the 7 last plagues that will be poured out on the Earth to destroy the wicked.
