Myself, I see it as something that is important in a general understanding of many important issues in Scripture. And I feel it should have it's own board, because there are those who take a greater interest in Eschatology than others. Many of the "great men" of God through History could be pointed out as to whether they had a focus on Eschatology...or not. I have heard quotes of men who are said to have avoided it and considered it unimportant. So along with the question of the OP, I will throw in, "Is Eschatology important, or can one expound Scripture and remain ignorant of it?" My time is drawing to a close here for now, so I am not going to participate in this thread right now. It is, just as my other threads with polls, particularly in regards tot he political board, more an attempt to give the members their views for the benefit of the staff. So please explain why you feel it (Eschatology) should, or shouldn't, have it's own board. God bless.
