    I strongly believe it is coming. I think Christ said he would come when the world has abandoned the teachings of Christ.

    Nice to see a Christian who actually understands his faith. It is very common for atheists to think they have everything all figured out about Christianity and yet this thread demonstrates, two key theological ideas: damnation and literalism completely misunderstood by the average person.

    Not sure. We are not encouraged to draw any conclusions from Revelation. We definitely don't believe in the sunday school protestant vision of Jesus swooping in on a cloud, though.

    Psalm 23

    You say this but there is a lot I still don't understand. I only came back to the Church recently after having ignored it for most of my adult life.

    But yes, if Biblical literalists weren't a thing then 90% of the ire against Christianity would vanish overnight.
