Eschatology and the Gospel

Patch Blakey

Although varied in many aspects, each of the three major millennial views (other than the postmillennial) is alike, in that they see the world growing morally corrupt with the eventual triumph of sin over all cultures, until at last Christ returns to conquer evil and save the world. Those who subscribe to one of the first three views find themselves in a contradictory situation, obligated on the one hand to proclaim the saving grace of God through preaching the gospel, yet simultaneously firmly convinced that, despite the best efforts of the Church, the world will still sink in moral decrepitude because of the triumph of evil in history.

until all His enemies are made a footstool for His feet (Heb. 1:13)? Is God a man that He should lie or the son of man that He should change His mind (Num. 23:19) thus making His promises of no effect?
saving gospel of Christ?
