I was born in a pastor’s home and had heard many sermons since my earliest childhood. I still remember my dad’s sermon on the mathematical impossibility of the gospel being preached to the whole world before the second coming of Christ. First, he would write on the board some formulas, which included worldwide birth and death ratios, and how it was impossible for the church to catch up with these figures. Then he would add the element of the Spirit of God (as in the time of the first century Christian church) and explain how the divine outcome could not be measured with simple math.
