Debating Eschatology PROMOTES Unity in the Church

One of the myths out there is that debating eschatology “divides the church.” This is not true. It is a cliché that we hear all the time from pseudo-pious individuals.

Platitude #5 — “Acts 1:7 Teaches We Should Be Concerned with Evangelism Not the Second Coming”

I am continuing an ongoing series on platitudes, which are frequently uttered intended to deflate enthusiasm to study biblical prophecy, shutting down discussion of God’s Word about our Lord’s coming.

Platitude #1 — “What Only Matters Is the Fact That Jesus Is Returning”

I am starting a brief  series responding to platitudes we hear from individuals that can deflate our enthusiasm to study biblical prophecy, shutting down discussion of God’s Word about our Lord’s coming.

Be Careful of Platitudes on Biblical Prophecy
