I don’t consider looking forward to Christ, the Creator of the Universe, return for the Church as moaning.

I just see it as not much different when I was a young Christian and really, really wanting to see Jesus. It is a part of the growth of Christians to go through a phase of looking, actively looking and understanding our times. This is how it should be. It is not selfish.

With time and if the apparent pace of prophecy slows, then the believer will mature into a more patient wait. If the pace of prophecy quickens, then these young Christians will be ready. I hope to be ready when the time approaches, even now. We are to pray and wait. I take seriously the fact Jesus warns us more than once that not all will be ready when he comes.

Are you ready?

You attribute my comment completely out of context. I specifically said moaning about Clinton and Obama and their excesses are nothing compared to what Paul experienced under Nero.

Compared to Nero, and what Paul faced, there is a lot of "moaning" going on.

With all due respect, attention to comprehension might contribute significantly to your arguments.
