There was a time in my Christian walk that eschatology, that is, the study of the doctrine of end times, didn’t seem all that important.  There were a lot of competing ideas about end times in the popular Christian press, but none of the popular ones that I saw made much of an impact on me.  None of them struck me as compelling.

But the longer I’ve been a Christian, the more I’ve come to appreciate the importance of having a sound understanding of eschatology.

Take the doctrine of the identity of Antichrist.  Although many Presbyterians and members of other Reformed churches may be surprised to hear this, the original version of the Westminster Confession of Faith had a very well-developed statement on Antichrist, leaving no one in doubt as to the identity of this person. 

It was the Pope of Rome.

Westminster Confession of Faith 25.6 originally read,

There is no other Head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ: nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God.

Happy New Year 2022!

I had meant to write this post last week, but, as they say, life got in the way.  So here’s the belated version for you. 

As do many, I find New Year’s a convenient time to stop and reflect on the year past and consider what may lie ahead.

In my case, I like to mention upfront that I’m thankful to the Lord God Almighty for the opportunity to write this blog during 2021.  Before I begin each post, I pray that the Lord would grant me the grace to write truthfully, clearly, and in a way that glorifies His name and edifies his people.   Moreover, November 2021 marked the seventh anniversary of my prayer to God asking him to help me write at least one blog post a week.  By his grace I have kept this pace, posting at least one new item every week since then.  Thanks be to God for giving me the strength to do this!

There are times as a writer when I really do wonder if I’m doing the Lord’s will or my own.  Has God called me to do this work, or am I just kidding myself and rebelling against him?  That he has honored my prayers for this blog, that people still seem to get something out of it, and that I continue to enjoy writing are big hints to me that, yes, I am doing what the Lord has called me to do.
