(The Pedant):  Once again, I’m inspired by Daystar.  There are many examples—here are a couple:

Ez. 29:9-12 and 30:4-16:  Ezekial predicts that Nebuchadrezzar will “destroy” the land of Egypt, cause its inhabitants “to cease”, the land will be made “desolate and waste” and “neither shall it be inhabited for forty years,” from its northernmost to southernmost boundaries, and that after this is done, “there shall be no more a prince in the land of Egypt.”
The prophecy fails on all counts:
Nebuchadrezzar never destroyed or conquered Egypt and he didn’t exile or exterminate the inhabitants.  A prince ruled in Egypt for centuries after his death, and Egypt has not been uninhabited in recorded history, much less for forty years.

Jer. 36:30:  Jeremiah predicts that Jehoiakim will have no sons to rule over Judah.  His son Jeconiah (also called Coniah—I Chron. 3:16 and Jehoiachin—II Kings 24:6), however, was the very next king (Est. 2:6 and II Kings 24:6-8)!
This prophecy not only fails, but you don’t have to go outside of the Bible to find out that it fails.

Amen to that brother! Of course there is an excuse, otherwise the bible would be wrong and that just can’t be, period.

Christians and Jews don’t reallty read their bibles. If they did they wouldn’t be Christians and Jews. They and their Pastors, Preists and Rabbbis quote mine the shit out them and drive on in absolutism!

And they possess no shame in doing so.
