Okay, so I've spent three bloody days trying to wrestle something worth discussing out of Bob's latest. Something which, given how limited his actual point is, I could extend into a point of my own and expand on it.
I have got zip, nada, bugger-all, nowt, sweet Fanny Adams.
So okay, Bob thinks that the fall of the church-persecuting Soviet Union is evidence that "the Gospel had triumphed over communism and God had had the last word against those who opposed Him and His word – the Bible." It can't have been caused by human corruption and the failure of the economic system. It must've been God!
What can I say? He's wrong.
And, of course, if the Communist system hadn't collapsed, Bob would be citing it as evidence of persecution as predicted by the Bible, so that would've been God too.
Either way, Bob's on a rhetorical winner, provided we buy into his fairy-tale.
