One can well imagine the number of theological works published on a regular basis in the English language worldwide. I’m sure we`d be surprised at the sheer number. Other languages are not so fortunate, and some have little resources available. Living in Canada, especially in the larger city centres, you may hear many languages being spoken but the two prevalent today are still good old English and French. I thought I’d contribute to sharing my theological insights to my fellow French speaking brethren. So, without further adieux, I’d like to share with you one of my works in the French language.
Previously, I published a summary of the eschatology of Matthew 24 in a 60+ page document where I went through the texts of Matthew 21-25 focusing on how this chapter relates to the overall understanding of the 2nd coming of Christ. After some hard work with my Petit Robert dictionary, I’m proud to present you all with the French edition which you can find here.

For the Christian, the hope of the future is bound to the promises of the scriptures and these promises don’t only show us the final destiny of humanity, but they’re like road signs directing us on how to get there. Our outlook on the end of history determines how much we steer in getting there and also what that involvement looks like. Some are less passionate about their contribution while others are hitting the gas pedal hard. Unless you’ve prematurely moved into your bunker and shut off your AM radio, you’ve surely have heard a few hot takes on the topic of Christian Nationalism. Admittedly, until just a few short months ago, I wasn’t acquainted with this expression and the movement behind it but now the elite have captivated me with another fearmongering name to exile all Christians whether they serve in government or not. If you’re not familiar with this term, I’ll do my best to share what I know. The idea of Christian Nationalism is a Christian political movement seemingly gaining some attention especially in the United States that is attempting to pass laws through government that would reflect God’s civil laws in their American society. Most mainstream media outlets who are our beacon of knowledge and truth identify it with a bunch of KKK rednecks and religious fanatics trying to usher in an American version if Iran but without all those pesty protests. Well, that’s the definition you will get from your local liberal and Tik Tok conducer but anyone with a shred of honesty will argue that it’s a little more complicated than that. The concept of a nation with Christian principles scares these folks who are fighting adamantly for an anti-Christian secular nation and are willing to engage in a little friendly civil name calling. But ultimately, like any other movement, there are different extremities, some extreme while some other are of the more mild version.

There are many fiery topics of discussion among Christians and the debate over just how the world will end is among the favourites. I’ve tried to refrain from jumping into the mix of these exchanges but alas, here I am, I can do no other. Having an end-time outlook has impact upon how you live today and what you leave behind. One of the most crucial to the discussion is Jesus’ own understanding of His coming and the end of the world.
