The Last Days Were At Hand

From the time John the Baptist preached that the time was at hand (meaning very soon) to Peter saying "the end of all things is at hand" and Jesus promising his return in "this generation" of 2,000 years ago, things have continued as if they never had said those things.

It can't be emphasized enough that the whole New Testament is one big failed prophecy of the soon return of Jesus and the immediate arrival of judgment day. It didn't happen - get over it.

That some of the doomsayers, like Christadelphians, claim that God just felt sorry for us and is just giving us a little longer to repent because of an imagined 1st century apostasy means nothing but an excuse for continuing to be stupid. I mean, it has been 2,000 years, give-me-a-break!

Yes, it's very popular nowadays to claim that God has postponed judgment day indefinitely - just any old excuse to keep the cults up and running, I suppose.

  1. If all these churches are wrong, then what Church did Jesus attend?

  2. You're kidding, right?

    He attended the local Jewish synagogue, Christian "churches" didn't exist yet.

  3. Just stumbled onto this blog. Funny thing is you're writing about some of things I've been thinking about lately. I was raised going to church (Baptist) every time the doors were unlocked. A habit, which until recently, I continued as an adult.

    Lately I've started to actually think through some things that I always took for granted. Like always trying to be "Christ-like". But what is slowly starting to dawn on me is it doesn't seem to matter how good or bad I am. Bad stuff still happens. To everyone. Regardless of faith. Things just are. And like your post about the end times, I mean, really, WHEN is it going to end?! But doubting isn't allowed in my former church so they'll never admit anything is off.

    Having written all that, I'll admit to having some guilt over thinking for myself. Some doubts about my search for truth. But it's been 25 years of brainwashing so I guess it's to be expected.

    Please keep writing. There are more of us out here than the church would have you believe.
