What made things so confusing was that the church had many different opinions concerning end times. Why were/are there so many different opinions? Why can't church leaders give us a "Thus saith the Lord" on the subject? Is God keeping the truth from us for some unknown reason or do you need a PhD in theology?

Humanity, understood psychologically, is an infinite series of levels of awareness and you, individually, are what you are according to where you are in the series.
