    I agree. Should they not be corrected?

    Yes, Christians should all be corrected when we are wrong. That is one of the purposes of the Holy Spirit and being born again.

    I realize that they will not be corrected. If just one person realizes that and so keeps on the lookout for the Righteous One, then I have done a good job, imo.

    Maybe he didn't notice the bit about not a letter of the law being altered till all is fulfilled.

    Maybe he thought sales were more important.

    But the result's the same.

    Jesus is the "all fulfilled".

    No, the establishment of the Kingdom on earth is when all is fulfilled.

    Hasn't happened.

    Why then did Jesus say on the cross, "It is finished" before He died. Jesus Christ is the King and the Kingdom.

    Why do you speak of things that you do not believe?

    For the people who obey the Kingdom, it is established. I think you have some work to do if it isn't established for you.

    I mean, I don't get on here with atheists and argue about their own beliefs, which one of their beliefs is more correct or what not. I think they're all wrong and tell them so.

    He isn't an atheist. He is a skeptic. Skepticism is good.

    I've argued with him before. He sounds atheist to me but if he isn't, then you're right.

    He might be an atheist, but perhaps not forever.

    Amen, brother, amen. Let us pray for him and all atheists that the truth will find them, convict them of their sin and lead them to Christ. Is that not what happened to us?;)

    Is that a spelling error?

    No. A person must be convicted of their own sin in their own heart before they can realize they are a sinner and that they need Christ.

    Usually, when a person comes seeking to be baptized as a believer it is because they have realized that they need to be saved from their sin. Many realize that their sin has wrecked or is wrecking their lives and they come looking for help - that only Christ can give.

    The thing obviously finished was his earthly mission. He'd known all along how it would end (Mark 2:20).

    The Kingdom was supposed to happen within the lifetime of some of his hearers (Mark 9:1 and 13:28, Matthew 16:28 and 24:32, Luke 9:27); but either that was a typo or something's gone wrong or in the end they just couldn't be bothered.
