Can’t trust Jesus’ word.

“Jesus will come back in my lifetime” <- how often have you heard that from a Christian?

    What causes me fear is not that fools believe the rapture might happen, what casues me fear is that people humour/humor these fools. Then I get upset when my nephew tells me he has to live his life now because soon he will be raptured away. Seriously, I have people in my family who have no plan for the future because they believe in the rapture, they are looking forward to it.

    “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.”
    Luke 21:32-33
    I’m pretty sure that generation passed away, but things are still taking place.

    I have no idea how many times it’s been said to me- I’ve been ignoring them for that long now.

    As usual fucking Nate gets it right. (Matthew 24:36) “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. (Acts 1:7) He said to them: “It does not belong to YOU to get knowledge of the times or seasons which the Father has placed in his own jurisdiction.” That has always been the case and you might as well stick a Darwin fish on the bumper of any “Christian” who claims otherwise. This is why I love you internet-atheists. These people obviously respect the Bible as much as you do… Read more »

    And yet somehow, you conveniently ignore the verse I quoted that directly says, from the words of Jesus himself, that all things would pass within the generation of the people he was talking too. A generation is 20-40 years, maybe 80 years at tops. It’s been over 2000 years. What do you have to say about that? Nothing. You’re wrong and the Bible is a fairy-tale.

    You’re right…I got nothing. Allow me to be the first to congratulate you on finding such a glaring hole in the bible record. I wonder how so many people missed such a simple statement…and yet, you found it easily and you’re parading it around proudly…WHELP! Better late than never right? One small point though… The Greek > Hebrew translation for “generation” doesn’t refer to a set period of time, but rather it takes on the meaning of “age, age of humankind, or *generation in the sense of contemporaries.*” (G. R. Beasley-Murray) Jesus often used the word “generation” in conjunction with… Read more »

    Not only is there Korintian’s verse that invalids your whole argument. But the language path of the New Testament was from Aramaic (spoken) to Koine Greek to Latin to English (King James Version). So talking about nuances from Greek to Hebrew is either your wilful ignorance or completely irrelevant.

    @korinthian =\ Really? Here’s why you aren’t to be taken seriously: The explanation of that is in the very next set of verses. A couple days later, some of the men with him when he said that, Peter, James, and John, were taken up to a mountain and saw Jesus in glorious Kingdom power. Please note the parallel account, Mark 9:1,2 which says “ACCORDINGLY 6 days later Jesus took…” Stop it. You obviously haven’t read the book you hate so much and whatever website is feeding you is as half-assed as you are. You can keep any remaining “proofs” to… Read more »

    Will you judged because you do not fear the God {For YOU know this first, that in the last days there will come ridiculers with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.” For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice, that there were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; and by those… Read more »
