Jesus Christ Never Lied!

Jesus again lies about the end of the world in:

Matthew 23:36 and 24:34, Matthew 16:28, Mark 13:30-31, Mark 9:1, Luke 9:27, John 21:22, Luke 21:25-33 and Matthew 10:23.

Matthew 23 just says that Christ will send people to the Jews. And he did, and they were killed.

Matthew 24 says that this generation or race will not pass away. Check the footnotes and it says 'or race'. The Preterist view uses this verse to back up their beliefs on eschatology, but I am a futurist so that is all I will say.

Luke 9/Matthew 16, How is that a lie? Some of the people may have been taken to Heaven but were not recorded in the Bible. Or it could mean that some people saw visions of heaven (very much like Stephen, Paul, and John did).

John doesn't say that John will live forever... It said that it was a 'rumor'. Jesus never said that he would.

Luke 21hasn't happened yet.

I have no idea how you think that Matthew 23 has a lie.

Jesus lied about praying to him:

And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, `Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it will happen. "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." (Matthew 21:21-22)

Jesus in the above verse says that whatever we ask for in prayer we would get it and here are more verses to prove it:

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)

Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst. (Matthew 18:19-20 NAS)

Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him. Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours. (Mark 11:24-25)

Do you know what my prayer to Jesus was to see if he could convert me to Christianity. Which I think he won't be able to do.


Interesting. I know those verses. However, do you know what 'in his name' is? It's not some blank check that Jesus hands to you saying, "I've signed it already, name what you want". No, Jesus is not some vending machine. "In his name" means asking God for what Jesus would ask. Also, you must have faith in God. That he will fulfill his promises. Lastly, just because you do not receive right away does not mean that God will not answer your prayer; God is never late and his timing is perfect.

May God Bless
