Dr. Alan Kurschner played a brief clip from his introduction at a Bible Prophecy seminar in the Salt Lake City Area. He opened up this seminar by responding to various platitudes that others often make that sound pious on the surface but are not biblical reality.
These platitudes are intended to discourage and deflate your desire to study eschatology, especially on the second coming of Christ. However, when these platitudes or slogans are examined in the light of Scripture, they are shown to be vacuous statements.
Some of these platitudes include:
“What only matters is the fact that Jesus is returning.”
“It will all ‘pan out’ in the end.”
“This doctrine divides the church.”
“Who are you to think that you have the right answer?”
“Theologians have been debating this for centuries.”
“There are so many views out there.”
Dr. Kurschner responded to these unbiblical platitudes with counter-biblical truths from Jesus, Paul, and the book of Revelation.
