Lapin: God does not want you to retire OR aging is a sin

Rabbi Daniel Lapin appeared on AFA's "Today's Issues" this morning where he made the case that people are never supposed to retire because the word "retirement" does not appear in the Bible. In fact, it is because people retire that their health often deteriorates because they are basically saying to God that they are done serving people, and since that is the case, well "then who needs you"?

No, I'm pretty sure the word "retirement" does not appear in the Bible is because the average lifespan of the people during that time was 30.

2. Perhaps Rabbi Lappin should check in to a mental hospital.

He has obviously lost touch with reality.. God what an idiot.
