Is the Church guilty of putting Eschatology, the study of Last Things, on the back burner? I brought this matter up for a reason: not a few Christians are content in slighting the End Times. They say, "Whatever happens, happens!" Or, "Just make sure that you're prepared to meet your God!" Does Scripture invite us to pay closer attention to the End Times? I certainly think so. "11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells" (2 Pet 3:11-13, TNIV, emphasis mine).
