From Generation to Generation

“Every generation since Jesus died on the cross has been sure of Christ’s return during their lifetime.” It may very well be true that each generation anticipated Jesus’ return, and well so. However, anticipation and hope alone aren’t what will facilitate Jesus’ soon return to earth. According to the prophetic scriptures, Jesus would only return after certain events unfolded.

Religious Psychosis...driven down line for 2000 years +.

They've been spreading this Mind-numbing "Anti-life" Philosophy for years....

WHY ???
*Because...once Institutions control your MIND---THEY CONTROL YOU!

HOW ???
*Its much easier and MORE socially acceptable to follow than to actually THINK FOR YOURSELF. It the nature of the AVG. PERSON to Shut off his mind---and listen to someone "Who knows Better! "

This wrong mindset is exemplified in Churches that focus on everyone going to heaven at death, which is counter to scripture, but appealing to members, Or OSAS which does the same thing, self focus. Every NT writer, and the words of Jesus address the End as coming in their day. They show the need to keep that focus, even though even Jesus did not know the day and hour. It is a protection.

Simple Trickery promulgated by The Church used to control the Minions. Its called "FEAR !"

So..the prophets of the NT didn't trust their followers to do what was right...they thought it best to TRICK them into believing Christ was RETURNING "any second now . . . so be Ready ! ! !"

Really... ? ? ?

The draw of the World has that much power over a "True Believer ?"

Tell Us...Which book of the Bible did Jesus write ? ? ?
