From another thread: >Climate change ? I thought the church's job was to proclaim Christ, and him crucified. This is my major objection to Dispensational theology - the unintended consequences. Sin has to multiply before Jesus can return. The environment must degenerate before Jesus can return thus no point to making the world a better place for the grandchildren because we will get raptured in the next year or so and everyone else will go to Hell. No point to polishing brass on the Titanic. We must fill the lifeboats. Problem is I've been hearing this for 60 years and "believed" that we would get Raptured within 40 years of 1947. That year has come and gone and I got "Reformed" in 1988.
