His Dad was right. It's absolutely bunk. Corpses don't serve well as structural members. It's all the rotting and stuff...it creates a void which doesn't support bupkis. I imagine the smell would be somewhat distracting as well.“No,” said the rabbi. “They put the Jewish bodies into the walls and used them as bricks.”
My father was something of a handyman at the time, and this seemed to me a serious violation of basic building codes, not to mention a surefire way to lose a home sale.
I take it the Author isn't much of a fan of God. Someone should tune him in to the fact that a "vast mixed company" left Egypt with the Israelites. So some Egyptians obviously saw the power of God and acted accordingly. Someone should also tell him that something similar is going to happen at the end of this system. God NEVER takes pleasure in the death of the wicked. We've seen 1000s of years of his forbearance but he has his limits. His patience is running out...and not in the Joe Bribem meaning of the term. As RK has pointed out, he's going to give everyone a very important chance to turn around soon. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the two witnesses will give powerful testimony to encourage joining with those who are waiting for Christ's kingdom. Like the Egyptians, people are going to witness wonders and be given a thorough witness to repent, turn around and follow the direction to do what is required to enter the Kingdom.
@Outcast; RR is that you?! I respect your opinion but I've come to other conclusions...and yes I've read Romans 9-11. There are many on this Web site who are much more qualified to discuss this with you...even some of the Anointed. I just can't agree with you that the Jews are God's chosen people and mean anything to Jehovah anymore.
