Discussion for Luke 21:8

  • Jo on Luke 21:8
    This verse is not mistranslated as Jeremiah Pierce has said see above Paul did not say "I am Christ "! Paul said "For me to live IS Christ "! JESUS is talking about people like the Ahmadi from Pakistan who in the 1800 's said that he is the Messiah returned! JESUS is not talking about Christians here. This comment is complete nonsense. Christians do not say they are JESUS! and JESUS is The Christ! satan really is trying to twist the words of GOD!
  • Jeremiah Pierce on Luke 21:8
    This has to be the most mistranslated vese in the Bible. If Jesus was talking about a faulse pophets here then Paul would have been tagged as one when he said "For me to live is Christ"

    Jesus is talking about faulse Christians here. The decievers Jesus is talking about here are not saying that they themselves are Christ. They ar sayig that Jesus is the Christ thus most of Christanity today is included in His words.

    Satin loves this twist of the God's word.
