Critics of Christianity try to undermine the authenticity of the Lord Jesus Christ, declaring Him a false prophet because they cannot reconcile the ‘imminent’ factor of His ‘end times’ predictions.
Most Christians are also unable to account for the simple statements Jesus made concerning His impending return.
In my opinion, Dispensationalism’s emphasis on empirical evidence and imaginative narrative has blinded the eyes of many believers.
According to Deuteronomy 18, if the words uttered by a prophet failed to come to pass that person was considered a false prophet.
Deu 18:20-22 KJV But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 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.
If the words of Jesus failed, He too would be a false prophet and Christianity discredited as a result. Read more>>
