  • John Calvin's Understanding Of Eschatology Analysis

    “Kingdom of God”, “the day of the LORD”, “the end of the world”, “the last judgment” and “a new heaven and a new earth.” These words are the image of eschatology, and eschatology is an important subject in the Bible. Even Donald K. McKim says that the theme of the Bible is the kingdom of God (McKim, 167). In the Gospel, Jesus taught about the kingdom of God in his whole life and ministry, and the kingdom of God is represented as “already, but not yet” (McKim, 170). John Calvin, a 16th century representative theologian, agrees with the eschatological idea of “not yet” rather than “already.” On the other hand, Joan M. Martin, a womanist Christian liberation ethicist, more emphasizes on the “already” side. According to the understanding of eschatology,…

  • Examples Of Eschatology Discussion

    Message of Eschatology Discussion It was not until I was forty-five years old that I began to realize that the most important decision I would make in my life is where am I going to spend eternity? There are people today that fail to realize that the same holds true for them. People are so focused on the now that they do not think much about later, after death. For some, their belief is when they die, that’s it, and there is no life after death. As ambassadors for Christ, it is our…

  • Comparative Eschatology

    Comparative Eschatology of Christianity and World Mythologies When dealing with the idea of eschatology, many common views come from break-offs of the Abrahamic religions, with the most commonly known revolving around Jesus’ second-coming, the Rapture, and the Armageddon, the fight between the Antichrist and Jesus. While this view seems to be the most developed view of the end of the world, many religions prior to modern times also had some stories or ideas that explained how the end of the…

  • Bronte's No Coward Soul Is Mine, And Despondency?

    In Emily Bronte’s No Coward Soul Is Mine and Faith and Despondency, both poems discuss the inevitability of death but the eschatological hope that is found when one puts her trust in God. The speakers of both poems each have a different fear about their own mortality, and each poem uses different poetic devices to discuss how to overcome them. While No Coward Soul Is Mine and Faith and Despondency contain different structures and rhyme schemes, both poems suggest how faith in God mitigates one’s…

  • Essay On Islam Apocalypse

    Arabia Apocalypse Introduction The apocalypse myth is a commonality in the human cultural collective – the idea of a catastrophe which marks the end of the world as we humans know it. Deviating from the common idea of apocalypse, the term may also be interpreted as the end of an old world and the birth of a new. Apocalypse designates a failure on the part of humanity and indicates that higher powers are intervening to end such failure. Realistically, apocalypse is a grand representation of the…

  • Giorgio Agamben's Analysis

    In Giorgio Agamben’s The Time That Remains: A Commentary on the Letter to the Romans, he evaluates Paul’s letter by taking a close reading of the opening of Romans and then claims that within these treasured words ultimately lies Paul’s messianic philosophy. Each chapter, interestingly, lays out the context and content that each word of the opening means and what Paul was hoping to convey to the Romans. Agamben also presents Benjamin’s Theory on the Philosophy of History side-by-side Paul’s…

  • Eschatology: End Times

    Eschatology is the study of what is commonly referred to as the “end times.” This era in history was foretold by the book of Revelation in the New Testament. This field of study can have both good and bad come from it. An example of a good thing from it would be to recognize signs of Christ’s second coming and to let those signs strengthen one’s faith. A bad result that could be pulled from studying Eschatology would be a person attempting to pick a date for when Jesus comes back to retrieve all…

  • Why Does Religion Exist

    However, most people do not fear this end as they will not live to see it. Instead, they fear what will happen to them, or more precisely, their soul at the end of time. Science has not and most likely will never be able to explain what happens to a person’s soul, if it even exists, at the end of time, as it is an untestable theory. Therefore, to seek an answer to this terrifying question, many people abandon science – due to its inability to provide answers – and accept one, or many, religion’s…
