Twenty Minutes

I did this analysis twenty years ago with an apologist mindset, then I went on to explain how for god this was fair. I’ll let you judge for yourself, as my hairsplitting defense of gods wisdom overshadowed sensibility.

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

2 Peter‬ ‭3:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

If a one day to the lord is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day, the average human living 70 years, has roughly 20 minutes of the lords time to decide his eternal fate here on earth. Some much less time, while others just a bit more. Hardly seems like a fair enough amount of time, considering about 7 minutes of that is spent sleeping, 7 is spent working, 5 is basic living, recreation, sex, weekends, vacations, family time, schooling, and so forth. Probably about 1-2 minutes thinking about religion and scripture. Decide quick! Take no chances. Go with the flow, and don’t forget to tithe!! Making love takes about twenty minutes on average I guess, so shouting out jesus at this time may count towards confessing. But don’t shout to early.

“If” any of this were true, how could judgement and sentencing for eternity be fair based on Bible math?

  1. Let’s use your last sentence to figure this out. I’ll use the first six words as a starting point.

    “If any of this were true” None of it is true. We are done here, did you bring beer? 🙂

            1. That is excellent. I just bought letters from the earth. Hoping to get to it soon. If not I won’t let it get to me.


    1. My Latina would frigging kill me!!! lol. I used to work at a place where the boss would always ride you if you weren’t busy. I always had a screwdriver and a rag in my hand so it looked like I was doing something. Mel is carrying a rag and a screwdriver today, trying to look busy but his post is so weak, I think
      just wants to fight with someone. His jesus gland need a draining.

    1. I just killed a canary. You are so right! If Christians had invented algebra, you could make anything add up by adding more zeros to your theory. Hence, creating negative feedback with that could prove itself right.

  2. Most people I know who came into Polytheism had several religions before that. And they will probably leave Polytheism and go some place else. There is no *one true* religion. Just lots of them that may believe they are the only true one. People know the difference.

    1. The Christian god is already three gods in the text. They just won’t admit it, and have a strange fascination with explaining their way around it. Why? idk.

    1. Right I get that. But in gods time he’s allowed us two minutes to get the right path. God is immaterial, outside of space and time and is totally incomprehensible and immaterial. Hence, imaginary. Maybe this is where ” give me a couple of minutes” comes from?

  3. Wonderful analysis, Jim.
    I’ve read the time lapse concept in many stories. God stays younger while we get older and perish. Have you read about how smaller creatures and insects like flies experience time?? It is intriguing.
