Tragically, some people get so caught up in the study of eschatology
that they neglect the basic principles of spiritual growth and
evangelism that the Second Coming is designed to motivate.
John MacArthur, 1&2 Thessalonians, 123-4
There are many things that our curiosity would like to know,
but the Bible is not there to gratify our curiosity. Rather, it is
to help our Christian lives, and for that the important thing is
that we should be ready whenever the Lord comes.
Leon Morris, NICNT: The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians, 142
