Here's what I think.
John wrote this at a time when Rome was murdering Christians, and Rome was built on seven hills.
The prostitute may have been what would become the catholic church because they would place themselves between you and JESUS.
And I believe it was written to give Christians hope that the persecution would soon end.
Here's an interesting web site.

What is your thoughts concerning the popes overtures toward the Muslim Faith. Do you believe they May join together as one church and become the great prostitute and or Babylon of chapter 18.

It certainly looks bad.
Inviting satan's minions into what the catholics consider the holy city is blasphemy in my opinion.
This pope leans toward islam and communism and either one is a slap in the face of GOD.
Plus, he might be wanting control of islams money.

Those not in tune with scripture can't see it coming and how little time we have to live for the Kingdom.

Looks like someone has edited out several posts. Did we say something wrong?

I see that Dee's post is gone.

Sounds like the West Coast of the U.S.A.but then it could just as easily be Washington the City as they are the one catering to perversion.

Of the 5 major approaches to interpreting Revelation, I'd probably be considered an "Idealist" since I believe it was primarily written to encourage the first century church under persecution, while still applying to the church at large between Christ's first and second comings. I see "Babylon" as an "ideal" representation of each of the specific prostitutes that have and will call away the church from their first love, which so far has been various religious and political organizations, people and ideas ... lots of ideas at work upon the church today tempting her to go "awhoring after other gods" as the OT would say. Progressivism, socialism, fundamentalism, cultism ... pick your poison
