For the avoidance of doubt, I have never made prophetic interpretation, etc., a test of orthodoxy or spiritual standing in relation to the gospel. I count even pre-trib. dispensational premillennialists/Prince Harry:Antichrist ID'ers as my brethren in the faith. According to them, I'm the heretic here, and they are far more likely to regard me as beyond the pale than the other way round.
How many evangelical Christians are there in the US? Shall we conservatively estimate 20 million? If 19 million of those are millennialists, then one is tempted to argue that 19 million Christians can't be wrong, whereas 1 million can easily be wrong. On this rare occasion, I would argue that the majority are wrong without questioning their salvation. As always, time will prove who has got it right on this one.
I don't have all the answers either, but in the context of the current discussion, at least I can accurately claim that the Finalist view of the end times also provides a powerful bulwark against and rebuttal of the crass and lurid materialism offered by our JW friend. She would do well to study Luke 17:20-21, 1Cor. 15:50 and Rom. 14:17 a little more closely.
The fact that the Finalist view sets its face against all forms of cultic chiliasm is yet another proof to me that it must, by definition, be a close approximation to the truth.
