For the church to live according to its prophetic vocation, there is an essential question we need to constantly be asking: ‘What will the world to come look like?’… What does the redemptive future of restored humanity look like?… What will be abolished? What will be maintained? What will be restored? Having derived a vision by grappling with these questions, we need to then work for the abolition, maintenance, and restoration of these things.
