"I would rather
have my faith -
even if it is wrong"
By Mary Magdalene
Dear John: I hope that Christadelphian interpretation of Bible prophecy is right because the world has gone mad over here, hundreds of thousands of Muslims invading Europe whose religion has the aim is to convert non Muslims or wipe them out, fear of terrorist attacks etc.a ''time of trouble '' springs to mind.
With reference to Russia I remember you saying some years ago when Russia became less of a military power that Russia was no longer a threat to Israel, yet we now see it's military build up in Syria, Putin having a meeting with the leader of Iran this week and ISIS, Hezbollah etc.with the declared aim to wipe out Israel and now these attacks in Europe drawing other nations into the conflict with the backing of the UN.
Looking back a hundred and fifty years ago Russia was only a group of tribes, the warfare described in Zechariah 14 was unheard of, or Israel being re-gathered back to the land as a nation, oil being found in Israel, the coming together of Arab tribes as an enemy of Israel or all nations being gathered together into a conflict in the region. With world wide communication in minutes facilitating terrorism. It will be interesting to see what happens. Personally I would rather have my faith as I gives me a reason for these things happening and a belief that there will be an end to this escalating madness, even if it is wrong, than to have no faith or a belief that things will get better on there own.
I know that you disagree with what the Christadelphians believe but I do not understand why you have to keep writing about it. If I left because I no longer agreed with their teachings I would not need to do this. Why do you do it? I am not even sure what you actually do believe now.
With best regards
