...there are no dates for when its prophecies based in the bible are supposed to happen.
If prophecies are real, then why be so vague? Why not be SPECIFIC?
"There are 456 OLD TESTAMENT AND NEW TESTAMENT PROPHECIES about the Messiah that were fulfilled by the life of Jesus Christ. The Bible has many that were written thousands of years before Jesus was born! Precise, detailed prophecies such as; where He would be born (Micah 5:2), how He would be born, (Isaiah 7:14) how He would die (Psalm 34:20), etc. And history has PROVEN, without ANY doubt whatsoever, they were fulfilled EXACTLY as the Bible had prophesied, hundreds of years earlier!"
The chances of just 48 out of the 456 prophecies being fulfilled in one person are 1 in 10 to the 157 power.
That's — 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
"According to Emile Borel, once one goes past one chance in 10^50, the probabilities are so small that it is impossible to think that they will ever occur..." LINK
"...what's the likelihood of a person predicting today the exact city in which the birth of a future leader would take place, well into the 21st century? This is indeed what the prophet Micah did 700 years before the Messiah. Further, what is the likelihood of predicting the precise manner of death that a new, unknown religious leader would experience, a thousand years from now - a manner of death presently unknown, and to remain unknown for hundreds of years? Yet, this is what David did in 1000 B.C.
Again, what is the likelihood of predicting the specific date of the appearance of some great future leader, hundreds of years in advance? This is what Daniel did, 530 years before Christ. ...Indeed, it may be possible for someone to fake one or two of the Messianic prophecies, but it would be impossible for any one person to arrange and fulfill all of these prophecies." LINK
"Any man who rejects Christ as the Son of God is rejecting a fact, proved perhaps more absolutely than any other fact in the world. God so thoroughly vindicated Jesus Christ that even mathematicians and statisticians, who were without faith, had to acknowledge that it is scientifically impossible to deny that Jesus is the Christ."

Hmm. Well, if the Lord your serve is so great, why does he permit our suffering...
“For the WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.” (Romans 6:23)"
"And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man:were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage,until the day Noah entered the Ark and the flood came and destroyed them all.It was the same as happened in the days of Lot..."
"Jesus warned us that the end of days would be just as it was in the time leading up to the flood and also as in the last days of Sodom and Gommorah.
Unfortunately we have arrived at the place Jesus warned of, the very days of Noah and Lot, the days of the coming of the Son of Man. it is time to get right with God, to confess that we are sinners and to call upon Him for mercy and forgiveness through the blood of Jesus. "Whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" LINK

Why do we play games ? Why do we take test ? If we are made in Gods image then we must share some of our same properties . God does what he does for his pleasure just like you . He said there is nothing new under the sun . Does that make you feel like a crop from which he will harvest the wheat and leave the chaff . That is answered in the bible . Why not uproot the tares , because you will uproot the wheat also .You do not believe but your seed might . I can't explain the wisdom of God . You can't for certain prove a Godless creation which means you are still unable to completely resolve the issue . It's the only game in town and you are a player on one side or the other .

It seems many of you refuse to see who Jesus really is and what Christianity truly is, because of other so-called Christians.
