I have long believed Arminianism/Pelagianism is really humanism wrapped in twisted interpretations of pseudo-Biblical texts. One error I often see preached from the pulpit that echoes this same humanist perspective is that Jesus cannot return until we have fulfilled the great commission. (Oddly enough, these same preachers often teach in the next breath the doctrine of imminence, which is that Jesus could return at any moment -- go figure.) They use the following text as evidence that it is up to us to finish the task before Jesus can return: Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. But hasn't anyone ever noticed what happens in Revelation 14, which describes the events that will occur just before the end, when the hour of judgement is at hand? Revelation 14:6 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth--to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people-- 7 saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water." In other words, Jesus is not referring to the great commission in Matthew 24. He is referring to what angels will do as part of a series of final messages to the entire world (read the whole section in Revelation - or better still, the whole book - for context.) This makes the great commission no less great, nor does it relieve us from our responsibilities, but Jesus is not waiting in heaven twiddling His thumbs until we finish our jobs here on earth. That is simply a humanist view, an error that is the inevitable result of humanist Arminianism/Pelagianism.
