FINAL EPISODE: The (False) Doctrine of Imminence
This week (November 3) on Shabbat Night Live, churches all over the world teach that the Messiah could return at any moment — but can he? Is there any proof of this at all in the Bible? Furthermore, do we really understand our part at the resurrection?
