I would argue that most churches accept this quite literally, and that the exceptions prove the rule. Three great examples in the last 150 years of trying to pick a date are as follows: The Millerites who, in following Miller, were convinced Jesus was coming back in 1844. Ed Whiseant's "88 Reasons the Lord is Coming Back in 1988" Harold Camping's date of ...

I think to answer your question we have to address some foundational items of Christianity. First Christianity is a religion based on being saved by grace. Nothing done by you will warrant salvation for your soul. (Romans 3:23 (No one is good enough), Romans 6:23 (God gives us the gift of salvation), Ephesians 2:8 (Grace saved us)) It seems that the ...

I know I should probably reference these, but I'm going to appeal to common knowledge Before answering, I just want to re-emphasize two central teachings that are common to the vast majority of Christianity: It's safe to say that almost every denomination, and almost every major division within Christianity agrees that God does not and cannot lie.

God has not rejected His ...

Does the bible say Jesus was coming back in 2, 20, 200, or 2000 years? No. In fact, it is not stated when he would come back. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 states: "..for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night." So "isn't it obvious he most likely is never coming back?" No it isn't obvious to those of who believe what the bible ...
