Stick that in your eschatological pipe and smoke it!

"No one knows what is coming- who can tell him what will happen after him?" -Ecc. 10:14

Even the most subtile eschatologian, who may limit himself to saying such floosy things as, "Scriptures become the word of God eschatologically" or "the Kingdom of God is now but not yet" or nearly the whole of the absolutely worthless gibberish of Jurgen Moltmann's "theology of hope"...cannot escape from this sharp judgment of scripture. Before the future we are trembling leaves, and it would be better for us to remain taciturn as such.
