Is the Promised ‘Second Coming’ of Jesus Christ the Greatest Fib Ever?

So then, is the promise of a Second Coming by Jesus Christ the greatest fib ever?

How exactly do we know the promise of a Second Coming could be a greatest fib?

C’mon now you exhale, C’mon now, you exclaim.

For those who do not believe in Jesus Christ, the promise of a Second Coming sounds like the greatest fib ever, the ultimate fib. The reason? The promise never can be proved to have failed.

It is irrational for a man to fib just so His followers can value martyrdom as much as He Himself would first demonstrate.

If the signs do not matter for forecasting of Jesus’ Second Coming, do we not again conclude Jesus was fibbing, attempting to pull one over the eyes of His disciples?

In the signs of His Second Coming told to His disciples, and prediction no one would be able to predict the timing of His Second Coming, Jesus declares that the best way to prepare for His Second Coming is not to wait for life to be perfect before we attempt to live life to its fullest extent. Seems a lesson even non-Christians can appreciate.

The greatest teachers do not attempt to indoctrinate, they focus on improving our capacity for arrival at personal interpretation of information or knowledge. They help us understand how to ask questions, find answers. In all of His teaching, prior to His death Jesus never demanded anyone acknowledge Him as the promised Messiah. If the understanding was proffered (Peter proffered), He asked it be kept secret. Only when He had returned to heaven could His disciples proclaim to the world that God came down and lived among us, and this is who (principles, character, values) He revealed Himself to be in His way of life and teachings.

Jesus Christ, non-domineering, emancipating, master teacher.
