- Christianity, the Bible & Jesus
Some men on earth are over 2000 year old,the world need to search for them.
It is said that, I think according to the bible record, that the oldest man to have lived on earth was close to 1000 year old. It maybe possible to find men that is above 2000 year old and still counting. 2000 not 200, so do not get confused. Nothing is impossible so it can be possible to see older men if the world can only search or solve the mystery behind the location of these men or where they can be found.
I never really thought of this until I read some verse in the bible. We know that most Christians usually believe things the way it is written without thinking deeper into its mean. That is why they say “the bible says..."
Now Jesus said in Luke 21: 32 “Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place."
Again in Luke 9: 27 he said, " But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God." We know that it is over 2000 years since he said those words to those that stood with him. Does it mean some of them are still alive till now?
Since Christians believe that the bible is the word of God and not the words of the writers despite that they wrote it and not God so it means that all that is written in it is as it is written. Secondly, it is claimed that some Christians understand the literal meaning of the bible verses and build their doctrines and teachings from it while other Christians claim to understand its spiritual meaning and build their doctrines and teachings from it. Consequently, there are conflicting opinions on biblical issues among Christians.
Some Christians claim that the kingdom of God will come to earth while others believe it is in heaven and would come on the last day. When we consider what the bible said in Luke we can wonder if these men are still living and waiting for the kingdom of God to come. Can it be by rapture or by incarnation or what? That is by what means can they still live still and not taste death till they see the kingdom of God?
If the bible really meant what it said as it is written and the bible is true then the world really have to search for these men or The world have to resolve the mystery and the true meaning of those verses.
