(p.167) 8 Conclusions
Waiting for Antichrist

Damian Thompson

Oxford University Press

This chapter is divided into two sections. The first examines the wider lessons to be drawn from the study of millenarianism at Kensington Temple. The second section argues that although the Problem of the End has manifested itself throughout the history of millenarianism, it is becoming more acute. It concludes that secularization weakens millenarianism in a more direct way than it weakens other forms of religious consensus.

Keywords:   Kensington Temple, millenarianism, End Times, secularization, Pentecostalism, Christianity
