Jesus said, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.QUESTION
Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples:
baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and
teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And I will be with you always, to the end of the age."
Matt. 28: 18-20
Is the doctrine of the "Second Coming" consistent with Jesus Christ's claim of absolute authority in heaven and on earth and his promised presence with us to the end of the age?
(Or does "the Second Coming" make sense at all about Christ who is supposed to be more powerfully present today than ever before independent of our understanding?)
