Did Jesus Really Have Sex?
That's the question that Pastor Bob Coy will apparently answer this afternoon on campus. If the question isn't tempting enough, he's also offering free Chick Fil-A to the first hundred people to show--I imagine that will get him an audience, as the mooch factor on any campus is pretty high. I hope he receives as raucous a welcome as Brother Micah has in the past.
Pastor Bob is a bit more legitimate in the sense that he has a real church--he's with Calvary Chapel, whose website is fairly innocuous from all outward appearances. But this ought to give you more of an indication of where he's coming from:
WSVN--It has been a devastating 14 months for the earth that began with a tsunami that killed nearly 300,000 people.
Followed by mudslides and floods that killed hundreds in the U.S. and Europe.
The hurricane season was one of the worst on record.
And during it all war raged on in the middle east.
Leading some believers in the Bible to conclude....the end is near....
Pastor Bob Coy: "You see things like ... lets say one third of the planets fowl life is completely destroyed----another plague brings open sores to mens backs as we run to and fro."
Bob Coy is the pastor of Calvary Chapel in Ft. Lauderdale preaching to thousands of believers each week.
Pastor Bob Coy: "This is the beginning of God's righteous judgement."...
Pastor Bob Coy: "I think its near for a couple of reasons. One, the book of revelation speaks of a cashless society before the return of Jesus Christ, today with technology I dont think that's so far away."
Another Bible scripture that is unique, Jewish people were forced at gunpoint to leave the west bank last year.
Pastor Bob Coy: "Zechariah, chapter twelve, speaks of a division of Jerusalem and when that happens. He, God, will cut all nations to pieces."
But here's the clincher:
Pastor Bob Coy: "Well I am excited personally because I truly believe that I am going to taken with the lord. But I am concerned for everyone else that truly will be left behind. I think it's kind of a scary concern where I would want to live through that time."
Yeah, he's one of those guys, one of the Tim LaHaye/Left Behind/Rapture/Jesus with an Uzi and a white hummer fighting Satan types. So I expect the answer to his question topic will be a resounding no.
Almost makes me want to go down there and ask him what he thinks of Mark 14: 51-52. Why was there a young man wearing nothing but linen there in the Garden of Gethsemane?
