I can't remember exactly, but I was trying to search for interpretations of the second coming and stumbled across a lot of stuff in that vein. I'm guessing I came across a lot of evangelical websites.
I'm comfortable with my rough interpretations of the rest of the Bible, but I'm having trouble reconciling what I read about the second coming of Christ. Yes, at this moment in time, I do think we are headed for an apocalypse. However, the idea of a massive Jesus sitting in clouds, with the earth on fire and dead people running around doesn't sit well with my understanding of metaphysics. Just wondering how other progressive Christians understand the second coming of Christ?
