Did I use poor judgment in bringing it home?

My reason is found in the Bible itself. As much as I want to continue believing that Christianity is true, I feel that there is no getting around this passage. Matthew 16:27-28: "For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds. Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom." Would you have a specific response to this? Evidently the person has a problem that Jesus had not returned during the lifetimes of those He was speaking to. They don't buy the transfiguration theory.

The wording casts shadows of the Messiah." When I looked up this reference, scripture seems to be pointing to Solomon as the one to whom this prophesy is about. However, your wording on page 86 seems to lead the reader to infer that you are referring to Jesus. Also, since Solomon did commit iniquities later in his life by taking all those wives and concubines, is there scripture that specifically states that he wasn't chastened with the rod and stripes that would confirm what you wrote. It seems that 7:14 says the opposite, that he would be chastened.
