Looking for answers in a post-eschatological Church
When I was submitting this topic I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could define it as “post-eschatological.” Andrew is way ahead of me with his thinking, so perhaps our community here could address some questions I have been pondering in light of my own realization that eschatology (the study of last things) has become a new beginning in my journey, rather than an end. In light of the first-century fulfillment of Biblical eschatology, I am now stumbling across new questions that prompt me to re-evaluate soteriology, ecclessiology and other aspects of my faith. Thus, assuming that all of Andrew’s (and mine) conclusions regarding first-century events are correct, can we take a second look at some of these questions, and perhaps even attempt to give some answers?
Some answers in light of emergent eschatology would be greatly appreciated. And many thanks go to Andrew for facilitating this wonderful and enlightening conversation!
