There has always been a tendency to create end time doctrine to fit current events instead of interpreting current events by end time prophecy!
Introduction to Chapter 39:
AS MUCH AS ANY OTHER FACTOR IT IS OUR PREDETERMINED IDEAS THAT CLOSE OUR EYES TO OR DISTORT OUR UNDERSTANDING OF TRUTH. Anyone who finds their security in their doctrine will forever seek validation of their position. Even if they are correct in their doctrine, true peace will still evade them. No one has ever found peace by being right. Yet many believers still seek peace and validation through their doctrines. Once we put our security in that doctrine we must defend it. If someone disproves our doctrine they have taken away our security.
