I bet you’ve Never heard the phrase- “Jesus is coming SOON! Better be prepared! Repent now before it’s too late..etc etc.”
Matthew 24:36 ““But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” Matthew 16:28 “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”
I hate to be the one to break it to you but…No, he’s not coming soon. He’s not coming at all.
So why would this ‘return date’ be so mysterious and open ended? Why has this been preached by the church for 2 THOUSAND years now?
To the Church’s credit…they understand sales and marketing. If you want to SELL something then you must create a sense of urgency. Starting to see Why this tactic is being used?
Tell people that everything happening today is a sign that jesus is returning soon. Then tell people they need to repent and accept jesus before it’s too late. Then collect large amounts of money from the new gullible believers.
Don’t buy into these tactics used by religions.
