I asked him to finally back up what he is saying so he sends me a bunch of bible verses that talk of goats with long hair, bulls and weird statues.
I asked him to explain to me how this in any way backed up anything in his original statements.
All he could say was "all I can say is when you go to church, that's school, and you just get it. Just like learning how an engine works"
To which I responded: "Well, not exactly. When I ask you to teach me about how to tune up an engine you teach me exactly that. You don't ask me to read about talking plant life or animals that don't get hair cuts?"
When you guys are done laughing, can you help me understand a better way to confront this kind of logic? It the way my whole family believes and I really would like some help refuting their end times bs.
I checked the refuting section on Seth's site and didn't see anything on this topic.
Just tell 'em Jeebus thought the same thing, and all the early Christians thought the same thing, and they were all wrong. The world will end, unless humans screw up something, or a huge asteroid hits, when the sun goes red giant.
Luke 21:32 "I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened".
Thank God for Dispensationalism so we can explain that Jesus referred to the Church Age and since the church is still here, brethren-a, we can say Hallelujah! We will soon be taken up into the air! Can I get an amen???
How about a fuck you?
