Kealty Exchange wrestment 10., par,
The subjett of the seeond coming of
Christ and the consequent end pf the
world has been brought prominently
before us by this great world war.
The various bodies of Christian be-.
lievers who have made this doctrine
prominent in all their teaching have
seized upon recent events as sure
proof that the end is at hand. One of
tkem, the Kosselliles, or I. B. 8. A.
have even got into conflict with the
government through thpir teachings.
And a group of famous elergyiu, of
whom U. Campbell Morgan is pcrhapi
the most noted, has issued a manifesto
giving their reasons for believing this
war is to end this age. la view oi these
things it seems fitting to discuss this
topic at this time. .
2 The. 2:1-3. Now we beteach you,
brethren, bv the eoaiiRg of sur Lord
Jesus Christ That ye be not soon
shaken in mind as that the day
of Christ is at hand.
Ever siuce that day en Olivet whea
the little company of disciples watched
thru Lord ascend until the cloud hid
him from tKvir sight, and heard tbo
angels message that some tine ho
should so come again in like manner
as they had seen him go into heaven,
the Christian world have expeelautly
looked for his return. If we read our
Bible correetly this hope is founded up
on scripture promise as positive and
definite as the promise which so long
awaited fulfillment in the Old Testa
ment days, that the Messiah should
come. But just as there was much eon-
fusion and misunderstanding regarding
the promise of his first coming, so tho
prophecy of his second coming has been
misunderstood and misconstrued until
the Christian publie is hopelessly bewil
dered upon this matter. -
. But the majority hold to a definite
fnd of the world, at which time our
Lord will definitely return, and end the
present world order. But those who thus
believe are divided into two parties,
holdiue nuite contrary beliefs. The one
party, known as post-milleniaiists, hold
that as Christ is directing his church
aud inspiring their activity by his in
dwelling spirit, his cooperation is mak
ing his church a triumphant church,
through whose activities the world is
growing continuously better, and will
continue to do so until cnrist e King
dom shall be established upon the earth.
nd the reiiru of righteousness aud p?ace
shall prevail during tho niillcnius (the
tlioutana years sposeu oi in jbcvciuhuu
a figurative period of a longer or short
er time), after which time Christ shall
come, and this world, at least uniwi
present material conditions, shall pass
The other party, known as pre-mil-leuialists,
hold many things in common
with thoir opponeuts, but they declare
that in spite of Christ's presence wtlli
his church, that church is not a trium
phant church, but that the world is
steadily growing worse, and will con
tinue to do so until Christ shall come
aud end the present age, conquering his
enemies by his heavenly forces, and
calling out hiB faithful ones from
amongst both the dead aud the living,

and years of his personal reign. Both
of these views havo been defended by
iiblical scholars in nil churches and in
Ull iniHlS. iUIIIIV, muill
been written upon ine question mm u.
two thoufund years tl.e argument has
intermittently aiisen and died down,
It is our purpose to meution somo
reasons why we are not able to accept
thn nre-iuillenial view.
First The scripture argument for
nromill 'liiulism is based upon an ex
tremely literal interpretation of bib
lical passages which are found for the
tho most part in books which are high
ly figurative. For example the chief re
liance for tho argument arc th. two
books of Daniel and Revelation. iX is
very doubtful whether any man on
earth can correctly unravel all the mys
teries of the visions found in those two
portions of scripture. . Aud yet, the
maiutenauco of this view uudvr con
sideration depends upon an understand
ing of these two books and a literal in
terpretation of manifestly figurative
passages. We cannot go into this scrip
ture argument in detail. The luck of
space forbids. But the only place in the
Bible where the thousand years is men
tioned is in tho twentieth chapter of
Revelations. It is expressly stated hero
tlint the saints are to live and reign
with Christ evidently upon the earth
for this thousand yars, while Satan is
bound for that time, aud apparently
as the pre-millunialists teach, there is
no opposition to Christ s reign uuring
that whole time. But, at the elose of
that millenial period we read in this
account (Rev. 20:7-9) that Satan is
loosed, and he "gathers together the
nations". Gog and Magog, "which re
in the four quarters of tne eurth, the
number of whom is as the sand of the
sea," to battle with Christ and his
followers. Now, if wo ore to tuko this
literally, where havj these mult it ud
ious peoples been during this thousand
yearsf We have been told that the
whole earth was to belong to Christ aud
his people for this millenial era, and
her.,; we find Hatan at the close of this
era gathering this army as numerous
"as tlu' saiid of the sea" to fight
against the army of Christ. This whole
account is manifestly figurative. Just
like the description of the JNew Jcrusa
Urn which begins in the next chapt;r.
But if it is figurative the chief scrip
tural prop of pre-millenialism is taken
The pre-millenial interpretation of
Nebuchadnezzar's mirage described In
the aaeond chapter of Daniel is another
ease iu point. According to this inter
tation the head of eold was the Chald
kingdom, the shoulders of silver the
Vledo-Persian kingdom, tho torso of
brass the Greek kingdom, the legs of
irou, the Roman kingdom, and feet of
iron and clay the Kingdom s accompany
ing the break-up o'f the Roman domin
ion. Now. according to this interpre
tation the end of the world is coming
during this dominion of the iron and
the clar. The Chaldean domination en
dured at the utmost about fifty years
after the proplu-oy was given; then
came the Medo-I'crsian for about two

man dominion begins, certainly not la
ter than 476 A. D., the fall of Rome.
Then this fifth era has lasted four or
five centuries longer than all the rest
put together! It has been a fayoritc
saying with the advocatos of that
theory that ' 1 we are. now living in the
very toes of that image." . But the
world must have boon living iu the
"toes" for mure than a thousand
Second Tho, history pf this doctrine
is suficieut to make thoughtful people
stop aud consider before accepting.
Since the view is that the world is to
grow worse and worse until Christ shall
come and ond all tha wrong and misery
every season of calamity has been look
ed upon as an iudicatlou of the end, and
in every see niany good people have
thought their sufferings a Bure sign of
tho coming of Christ. o wo lino ram

written, warning thcra not to look for
Christ 's coming too soon, and implying
(i Thess. 3:11-12) hat some hau al
ready ceased working, thinking the end
was at hand. In the nxt century tho
Montnnists led off laige numbers of
Christians by their preaching of this
doctriue. Probably the year iuuu saw
the irreatest single instance ot this do
lusion, for the notion spread ovor r,u
rono liko a prairie fir.o that the ond was
coming in that year. The obsoBsion has
broken out repeatedly since thon. Some
still living can remember tho "Millor-
ite" excitement in 1844. Men sold anu
eave awav their possessions, and in New
England especially whole eomniuuities
went fairly wild over this delusion.
When they found themselves mistaken,
many lost tneir luuu m roiigiuu. ah.,
tou vears ago iu a little church in Mas
sachusetts, known to tho writer, a group
of people locked themselves into the
church, beliving Christ was to come im
mediately. They purposed to spend th.5
time in song and prayer until his ad
vent. It was several days before they
gave up hope and some of them went
insane before a ordeal was ov. The
Kinsudlites assert that thn events mark
ing the cud of the world have actually

from their fanaticism many serious
things do not result. Docs it Mem rea
