Follow my logic.
According to this poll: 22% of people think the end will occur within their lifetime.
Now, Jesus warns that his parousia, his second coming, will take place like a thief in the night--i.e., when no one is expecting him to come.
Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Matt 24:42-44).So, should I conclude from this that Jesus isn't coming any time soon?
