I'm wondering why truth has to be revised... If "the truth" was "the truth" in 1864, why isn't it still "the truth" today? Has it become a truly true truth this time so that "the truth" was not "the truth" but now it is?
I guess we would have to ask the Christadelphians about that because there seems to have been a lot of revision of books and pamphlets going on since the days of Dr. John Thomas and Robert Roberts. And hey, wasn't the world supposed to have ended in 1988 - not to mention 1868, 1972, 1996 and several other dates in between, including 2012! That's scary, huh? But, seriously, saying that the end is soon and at hand for 2,000 years is beginning to be just a little bit much, don't you think? Quit scaring the kids with it already - why do you want to give your children nightmares and cripple them psychologically for the rest of their lives? Quit it already, enough is enough.
The generation that saw the destruction of the (then standing) temple in Mark 13, Matt. 24 and Luke 21 was also supposed to see the coming of "the son of man" in power and great glory - didn't happen. Not then, and not now, no matter how much Christadelphians want to see the wicked (everyone except Christadelphians) destroyed by FIRE and be stubble under their feet, it's not going to happen. Well, at least not the way they think, because it turns out that Christadelphians are just as wicked as everybody else.
If Christadelphians were really seekers of truth, the above truth would have been found by now, wouldn't you think? So, Christadelphians?, quit revising the truth and just accept the truth as it is. What? Are you blind? Yes, I think you are. It was all a false prophecy that did not come to pass and it never will because the prophet died and his generation passed away. John the Baptist said, "repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" - it wasn't. Jesus repeated the same words as John and it still wasn't "at hand". What turned out to be "at hand" was their own destruction, which they deserved: Deu 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak... even that prophet shall die.
Deu 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? Deu 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. Are you afraid? Don't be, he was a false prophet.
