Whose kingdom are we building?

Will Jesus fulfill us here on earth?

“People who fix their hopes upon a Kingdom which is to be consummated in This Age are certain to be disillusioned. The perfected Kingdom of God belongs to the Age to Come…Men cannot build the Kingdom of God; Christ will bring it.” — Dr. George Eldon Ladd in the “The Gospel of the Kingdom”.

Advertisers and marketing companies play on this intuitive sense we have, that there is something wrong with this world and we need to fix it. Even Christians who seemingly do it in the name of the Kingdom, if they’re not careful, could really end up building their own empire.
