Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“I believe like a child that suffering will be healed and made up for, that all the humiliating absurdity of human contradictions will vanish like a pitiful mirage, like the despicable fabrication of the impotent and infinitely small Euclidean mind of man, that in the world's finale, at the moment of eternal harmony, something so precious will come to pass that it will suffice for all hearts, for the comforting of all resentments, for the atonement of all the crimes of humanity, for all the blood that they've shed; that it will make it not only possible to forgive but to justify all that has happened.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

George Gordon Byron
“The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space.”
Lord Byron George Gordon

N.T. Wright
“...left to ourselves we lapse into a kind of collusion with entrophy, acquiescing in the general belief that things may be getting worse but that there's nothing much we can do about them. And we are wrong. Our task in the present...is to live as resurrection people in between Easter and the final day, with our Christian life, corporate and individual, in both worship and mission, as a sign of the first and a foretaste of the second.”
N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church

N.T. Wright
“What we have at the moment isn't as the old liturgies used to say, 'the sure and certain hope of the resurrection of the dead,' but a vague and fuzzy optimism that somehow things may work out in the end. ”
N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church

Theodor W. Adorno
“The only philosophy that can be practiced responsibly in the face of despair is the attempt to contemplate all things as they would present themselves from the standpoint of redemption. Knowledge has no light but that shed on the world by redemption: all else is reconstruction, mere technique. Perspectives must be fashioned that displace and estrange the world, that reveal its fissures and crevices, as indigent and distorted as it will one day appear in the Messianic light.”
Theodor Adorno

Tullian Tchividjian
“God's Kingdom is "present in its beginnings, but still future in its fullness. This guards us from an under-realized eschatology (expecting no change now) and an over-realized eschatology (expecting all change now). In this stage, we embrace the reality that while we're not yet what we will be, we're also no longer what we used to be.”
Tullian Tchividjian

Charles  Williams
“The Church expected the Second Coming of Christ immediately, and no doubt this was so in the ordinary literal sense. But it was certainly expected also in another sense. The converts in all the cities of Asia and (soon) of Europe where the small groups were founded had known, in their conversion, one way or another, a first coming of their Redeemer. And then? And then! That was the consequent task and trouble — the then. He had come, and they adored and believed, they communicated and practiced, and waited for his further exhibition of himself. The then lasted, and there seemed to be no farther equivalent Now. Time became the individual and catholic problem. The Church had to become as catholic — as universal and as durable — as time.”
Charles Walter Stansby Williams, The Descent of the Dove

Mike Bickle
“A true biblical eschatology prepares overcomers for the difficulties they must endure and helps them to stand with confidence that the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit is surely coming.”
Mike Bickle, God's Answer to the Growing Crisis: A Bold Call to Action in the End Times

J.A. Hardgrave, Author of Jesus Wins:The End-Times are Better Than you Think

“If bad things happening is the litmus test for a soon-coming rapture, it’s no wonder every generation for many years have believed they were the last generation. Bad things happen in
every generation.”

J.A. Hardgrave, Jesus Wins: The End Times are Better Than you Think

“What if the disciples heard Jesus say the temple and religious leaders would be destroyed and knew it meant the end of the Old Covenant age? Without a temple and religious leaders, the Old Covenant would be unable to function. Could you imagine the United States government functioning without the president, the secret service, and the White House? In fact, one-third of the Old Covenant laws required a standing temple.”
J.A. Hardgrave, Jesus Wins: The End Times are Better Than you Think

“I believe the verses about one being left and one being taken are actually referring to two different responses to the great tribulation.”

Vern Sheridan Poythress
“New Testament authors all may have been premillennialists, they may all have been amillennialists, or some may not have had a particular worked-out conviction. But all were oriented to the idea of fulfillment in Christ and then in his people, in both his first and his second comings. This central motif rather than the Millennium as such dominated teaching about the future.”
Vern Sheridan Poythress, Understanding Dispensationalists

“The word Antichrist is completely absent from the most prophetic book in the entire Bible—Revelation.”
J.A. Hardgrave, Jesus Wins: The End Times are Better Than you Think

“Prior to the 1800s, this passage (1 Thess. 4:13-18) was understood by biblical scholars to be referencing the general resurrection and the final coming of the Lord at the end of time. Nobody believed this was referring to some sort of removal of the church from the earth, just prior to a seven-year tribulation period.”
J.A. Hardgrave, Jesus Wins: The End Times are Better Than you Think

“I can tell you my view of the end-times in one word: Kingdom.”
J.A. Hardgrave, Jesus Wins: The End Times are Better Than you Think
