Yesterday, my friend Daniel wrote a post about how, now that Vladimir Putin is president of Russia, there are passages of scripture that predict the end of the world will be issued in by a relationship between Russia and Iran.
He wrote, “Knowing this I want to keep my eyes on Christ because biblical prophecy is being fulfilled right at this moment. He is the “ONLY WAY” to the Father in heaven! All our peace and hope is in Christ Jesus!”
He recommended that everyone read Ezekiel 38 and 39 for the facts of the end times. Because in Ezekiel 38 and 39, there’s a word Rosh, which he explained means “Russia.”
Now I’m not Jewish, but I know that the Hebrew word for Rosh means something other than Russia.
I mean, do Jewish people celebrate “Russia Year” at Rosh Hashanah or “Russia Month” at Rosh Chodesh?
I don’t think so.
Rosh means “Head” or chief. When Jewish people celebrate Rosh Hashanah, they are celebrating the head of the year. Or new year.
So I wrote back to Daniel explaining that.
Well, shit got ugly. Daniel’s fiancée Molly jumped into defend him, and she explained that the crux of Daniel’s message was that people should follow Jesus.
And I questioned, quite facetiously, doesn’t the crux of the message lose credence if facts are not used in the entire message?
She told me to go fly a kite.
I told her to read a book and do some research.
Maybe not that succinctly.
I screen cap’d a lot of the conversation, and I’ll put it below the fold for your reading pleasure. The problem is I failed to grab the last bit, which was her response to telling her she needed to learn more about Judaism.
She said something like, “I don’t need to learn more. All I know is Jesus is LORD, and that’s all I need.”
But wouldn’t you know it, the post has been removed.
The delete button has been engaged.
A new, improved post has replaced it. It’s been slightly revised with new information. I’ll put that one down there, too.
I honestly thought this ignorance was going extinct.
Between Charles Worley and people who repeat the writings of Tim LaHaye as if fact, I’m not sure believers care anymore. Can’t more be done on the part of the rest of you to help these fledgling, ignorance-loving, psycho-babblers out?
I’m not impressed.
The stupid … it burns so bright, I gotta wear shades.
