Text Taken from Website[edit]

Christhiru It's problematic to copy/paste the content from there into here. Typically, it's frowned upon to do that even with wikipedia. It would be better to simply link to that page, with a description here, perhaps with an excerpt, or additional commentary.

I think it's more the amount you took is excessive than the fact you're referencing other work, even if the source is cited.

I'll take it down
Well, I didn't mean you had to take it down entirely. It's still a valid topic.

what do you suggest?? -CHISTHIRU

My attempt[edit]

a) Yes, I know the text ought not to be quoted directly, maybe change will come;

b) I have a problem with a few of these being placed in this specific article, because they aren't necessarily clearly failed (yet) or even actual prophecies, but I suppose this is a work-in-progress. BronzeDome 05:20, 19 October 2011 (CDT)

Matthew fails x2[edit]

This is my first edit, but I felt with this being one of Matt's go-to's and highly relevant in a counter apologetic sense that the following are up-front on the list of failed prophecies:

Matthew 16:28 Bible-icon.pngI tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”

"brood of vipers tantrum" into: Matthew 23:36 Bible-icon.png I tell you the truth, all this will come upon this generation.

23:36 is improperly listed as 22:26 in the Skeptic's Annotated Bible.

Hopefully I did well! --FromHereOn 19:28, 8 October 2012 (CDT)

Bad argument category[edit]

This article is listed in the bad arguments section. Why is this? This information should be added. --Tim Sheerman-Chase 12:42, 10 April 2014 (CDT)
