Where is this ‘coming’?

“Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” 2 Peter 3:3-4

This attitude probably was present in Noah’s day. And it will be increasingly present from our day going forward. Seeing all the guesses regarding the second coming, many make fools of themselves. Many Christian groups rely on the urgency of the return to motivate their followers. They forget how many things have to line up for the second coming. Too many are crying wolf. We must continue to search the scriptures and even question our assumptions to keep ourselves honest.
