Its not as rare as you think !
Is "Bob" real ? If so, he is a complete and total idiot. Ask him if the fact that the early gospels were not in english means that they were not meant for him to understand and follow.
There are people who think like Bob who are actively trying to bring about armageddon. Fanatics in Israel want to rebuild the Temple, which would inevitably bring about a war with the Arabs and/or Muslims. There's a hitch, though. No one who has had any contact with the dead can enter the Temple, and nobody is quite sure exactly where its walls were. Given that contact with the dead could mean something as innocuous as walking over a grave--and there are a lot of unmarked graves in Israel--no one can be sure he or she has never had "contact." So they have to be "purified" with water mixed with the ashes of a sacrificed red heifer "without blemish." Luckily, those are pretty rare. Enter Yankee ingenuity. Some American Christians are trying to breed the perfect red heifer. Also, the heifer has to reach three years of age without any blemishes appearing. The last candidate sprouted some white hairs in her tail at age two, which might have saved the world. Also, the rabbi who sacrifices the heifer must be pure (no contact with the dead), so one group is trying to build a school on a raised platform where pregnant Jewish women can give birth. Their male offspring would be trained as rabbis who would be pure--no contact with the dead, get it? Once one of these boys is old enough to have his bar mitzvah (age 12), he can become a rabbi and slaughter the magic red cow. Then soldiers can be purified and the Temple Mount recaptured. War will ensue, the Temple will be rebuilt, armageddon will occur, and evangelical Christians will be raptured while the Jews, led by their twelve-year-old rabbis, will suffer through the Tribulation.
They are lunatics playing with fire in our house.
