Simple future, however vivid

September 26, 2011

I was just reading “Why the Antichrist Matters in Politics,” by Matthew Avery Sutton, in the NYTimes, and I would like to make the simple point that if our present times look like what’s predicted in biblical passages, maybe it’s because those passages were based on people looking into the future and thinking, erroneously, that they were having spiritual experiences.  The content of that future has no particular cosmological significance, from what I can see, that was an over-interpretation of what would more appropriately be viewed as a simple factual description of events.  It’s tantamount to being scared by our own reflections in a mirror.
