Rabbi Daniel Lapin appeared on the American Family Association's 'Today's Issues' radio show this morning where he claimed that people are not supposed to retire because the word "retire" does not appear in the Bible (audio below), reports RightWingWatch.org.
Rabbi Lapin said: "In the Lord's language. There is no word for 'retire.' I hope you're not thinking of retirement, but if you are, it's not in accordance with the bible. There is no word for 'retire.'"
"People who retire tend to go downhill health-wise. Very, very common. Basically what you're saying to God is "I've had enough, I'm taking my toys and going home.'"
"If you're not existing to serve people anymore, then who needs you?"
