Pessimism Kills Vision

The Antichrist is Coming!
"The Antichrist is coming! Run for the hills! Don't polish brass on a sinking ship!" Such messages were preached ad nauseam for generations throughout the 19th and 20th centuries in a large segment of the "fundamental, evangelical" Christian church. Unfortunately, this fixation on a pessimistic eschatology did great deal of damage to any kind of long term vision among families. This is one of the forces that killed a Generational vision and resulted in the 1.7 birth rate among evangelical families and the 80% leak rate of Christian kids who walked away from the faith of their fathers.

Forty, fifty, sixty years later, some of us are recovering from millennial burn-out. Kevin Swanson takes a moment to analyze this millennial fever that crippled the faith in the 20th century, and suggests that maybe we need to address ourselves to "occupying until He returns."
