Soon isn’t an issue. It is soon. Observing the times, it is soon. Soon could be 100 years. Soon could be tomorrow. We should always be ready and watching.

On June 25th, 2008 at 12:00 AM. That’s a problem.

You forgot the obligatory reference to 2 Peter 3:8.

The word "soon" implies a chronology that is unknowable. To say that we do not know when Jesus will return but it must be "soon" is both illogical and unbiblical.

I think you are confusing "soon" with "immanent". The Church has always believed in the imminent second coming, but not something that would necessarily happen soon.

Shavuot on June 9th, 2008 would be a better date.
