I've read all of Luke more than once

I don't trust that the translation is 100% authentic word of God anyways as it has very likely been changed through the years.

I also do not trust much else of the Bible except the four Gospels. I think the stories of the old Testament are horrible and I'm not sold that Paul was the real deal either although he did persevere through enormous persecution for his beliefs.

I can see how you interpret it that way and I won't say you're wrong. I do think it's silly for you to be so sure that you've correctly interpreted a translation of a translation written to an ancient culture.

After rereading Luke 16 and 17 as you suggested, I'm still confident that Jesus meant that "in the days of the Son of Man" that "The Kingdom of God is withing you". He also warns us about people claiming Christ will come back in the very next verse....

While I disagree, I appreciate your input and thank you for sharing. I look forward to hear more of what you have to say. You seem very knowledgeable about the Bible.
