Christians Use Prophecy To Excuse Laziness

There are 24 comments on the story from Feb 4, 2009, titled Christians Use Prophecy To Excuse Laziness. In it, reports that:

By Chuck Baldwin February 3, 2009 In response to my two previous columns regarding the current development of a devilish New World Order, many professing Christians wrote me with comments to the effect that we should not be concerned about whatever global tyranny may be developing, because "it's all a part of God's plan," or "Jesus is coming soon," and similar statements. I, too, believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to earth. But, then again, so did Christians from every generation over the last two millennia. In fact, the Apostle Paul was looking for the return of Christ while he lived (Philippians 3:20). But does anticipation of Christ's Second Coming excuse personal neglect, indifference, and downright laziness? Of course not.

Did I not imply that I am for separation of Church and State?
While I still have trouble reading the post you replied, "Excellent," to - since it mentions Biblical prophesy, which I consider imaginary, I was off base in my reply. I will try to spend a few seconds extra before responding next time.

how could a believer read paul and understand that he expected the second coming in his life time and only his lifetime than just overlook it when it didnt happen, yet still call the man credible in his predictions...?
No wonder xtains and religious folks are the prime customers of paranormal shysters.
Just how did you come to the conclusion that Paul expected the second coming in his lifetime?

All part of the same program. If I preach "repentance," then, obviously, I've repented first. "Repentance is the "confessing and forsaking" of sin. If I've forsaken sin, then I've put on the "new man" which is the perfect example of love toward others, friend, or foe, not considering myself. This is, also, the perfect way to preach the promise of the coming kingdom. By fulfilling "love" to all others, oweing no man any thing, this proves to them what they can expect in the kingdom. So, as I've stated, all that's required of us is to preach repentance and the coming kingdom of the most High and our anointed Savior from the most High. Never, though, were we instructed to take up arms against any. This would make it impossible for us to become perfect like our Father which is in heaven, which causes it to rain on both, the righteous and the wicked. We, like our Father, desire that none perish, but that all come to repentance. We're engaged in a war much more deadly than the wars that take place on this earth. Our war can lead to the destruction of our very spirit. The wars of men can only destroy our flesh.
