With the current situation in Syria causing excitement among many Christadelphians, it would be easy to slip into thinking that their crackpot ideas need to be taken seriously. As a child in the 1970's, I, like many other kids read Erich Von Daniken's "chariots of the gods", in which the author thought that chapter one of Ezekiel described an extra-terrestrial visitation. Josef. F. Blumrich, thought the same, It's all good fun, and does not need to be taken seriously either!
Back in October, Stephen Van Eck posted the article "Crazy old Ezekiel" at infidels.org
"One of the biggest ironies involving those who virtually worship the Bible is the fact that they often haven't read much of it. If they had, how could they fail to notice that Ezekiel, one of the major prophets, was not only a lousy prognosticator, he was an absolute lunatic as well."
Read the full article here, and remember not to take what the Christadelphians say any more seriously than you take Von Daniken and Blumrich.
Ezekiel 1:16 (NIV)
This was the appearance and structure of the wheels:
They sparkled like chrysolite, and all four looked alike.
Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.
