Cognition of truth, on the other hand, arises from the knowledge gleaned from the physical world as it is perceived directly through our physiological sense organs. Romans chapter 11 read in full context makes this fact clear. Therefore encourage one another with these words.� The second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, a day of which no human or angelic wisdom can ever know, will no doubt catch us unawares. (Matthew 24:36). I can practically see the congregation mobbing the pulpit screaming “Heresy!” for the assertions that we are made in the image of God and that through Christ those that fully give themselves to the word and will of God, are being made God by God.

For some, it will be a beautiful existence of eternal bliss; for others, an everlasting experience of pain and torment. But although the Bible and the Church say a lot about the future, Rahner asserts that their statements should not be read as if they denied the human ability to make choices. As Simon Gathercole has penetratingly observed, Schweitzer’s ultimate aim in The Quest for the Historical Jesus was ‘to destroy dogmatically what had been re-established critically.’ 25 Gathercole convincingly argues that one of the reasons Schweitzer structured his Quest around the central figures of Reimarus, Strauss, and Weiss is that all three figures sought (like Schweitzer himself) to demonstrate that Jesus’ eschatological worldview could not be carried over into a modern view of the world.

So we will get to at the tail end of the discussion. In Norse mythology a strong winter called the Fimbulwinter will seize the earth and bring disorder and fighting between the people of Midgard just before Ragnarok. If we do not stand for orthodoxy; i.e., sound doctrine or right praise, we will fall for the popular opinions, gimmicks, fads, and heresies that come along.

The believer indeed has a sense of inflated worth, power, knowledge, and identity. After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Jeremiah 31:33) Do you see the very serious quandary here? Most dispensationalists are surprised when taught that Jesus Christ is now and already “ruler of the kings of the earth” (Rev. 1:5), “the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ” (Rev. 11:5), and believers are now reigning with him in these last days.
