The fundamentalist lust to predict the future is the canary under the carpet, the problem that just won't go away, no matter how many careers are wrecked and lives are short-changed by those who proclaim as absolute truth the notion that God has already decided to take a dive.
“The fundamentalist lust to predict the future is the canary under the carpet,”
The fundamentalist desire to see Christ return as he promised is the dynamic of their faith. Much like the early Christians, “They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the deadJesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. “
“and the certainty of the gospel’s victory within history.”
Sounds like you’ve chosen to take your seat with the Christians-Socialists of last century’s Europe.
Good luck with that Pollyanna!
