Because generation doesn't mean generation when it conflicts with your beliefs.<quoted text>
That doesn't mean there's no proof.
There is proof of your hands, but I've never seen that proof.
That would be some proof, not no proof.
LMAO! No, Jesus didn't say that.
Say what you like," we shall be told [by some critics], "the apocalyptic beliefs of the first Christians have been proved to be false. It is clear from the New Testament that they all expected the Second Coming in their own lifetime. And, worse still, they had a reason, and one which you will find very embarrassing. Their Master had told them so. He shared, and indeed created, their delusion. He said in so many words,'This generation shall not pass till all these things be done.' And he was wrong. He clearly knew no more about the end of the world than anyone else." [Here the imaginary critics end speaking. CS Lewis begins next.]
