    Those bolded phrases are not suggesting that Lindsay believed the end of the world would occur in the 80's, contrary to what you claimed. And no, I didn't read the book but know enough of Hal to believe he would never specify when the Rapture would occur, but he does indeed speculate as do many others.

    More word games. Why would someone listen to someone who speculations are so very frequently wrong?

    So isn't speculating kinda futile?

    All the countless speculations of the world ending in the past were futile but one of these days someone is bound to get it right. The earth can't last forever can it?

    How about listening to someone whose speculations are fairly consistently wrong?

    Seems Hal's made a pretty good living doing that for almost 40 years now. Wish I could find such a great "job" as "speculation" on prophecy.

    For all of you sittin' on your suitcases awaitin' fer that Jesus train to come and carry you away, forget it. When He comes, He's going to surprise us all. When He comes, He's going to take those who are doing His work, feeding the poor, caring for the old and sick, visiting prisoners, and bringing justice to orphans and widows.

    We don't need to know when the world is going to end, because it's TODAY, right NOW. The world ends for someone every single minute. We need to live our lives for Christ every day, feeding His sheep instead of wasting our time and energy on idle speculations made by self appointed prophets who falsely use God's word, sensationalizing and misleading for profit.

    LOL ... as long as the missiles are for shelf use, I'm guessing the Saudis will be happy.

    I'm envisioning a white picket fence of missiles lined up along one of their borders.

    Kinda like playing with fire, I'd guess ... Reminds me of the time I watched a fireworks display go badly errant. For a few minutes stuff was shooting off in all directions across the ground.

    To be fair to Hal, I don't know how much money he's made off his chosen "career". I understand he didn't always get great publishing deals.

    Still, doing this for a living professionally for 40 or so years, must be nice.

    Beats having to work I guess.
