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.
Hi and welcome!

Ask him if he is aware that there have been countless predictions for centuries of end times complete with exact or approximate dates and none have proven correct yet. Then ask him why he thinks he is the lucky one to "really know".

(Sorry, I answered before I was done laughing. Long-haired goats and weird statues... Laughat )
