"The End of which the New Testament speaks is no temporal event... What delays its coming is not the Parousia, but our awakening..."
"Will there ever be an end to all our ceaseless talk about the delay of the Parousia? How can the coming of that which does not enter in ever be delayed? The End of which the New Testament speaks is no temporal event... What delays its coming is not the Parousia, but our awakening..." (The Epistle to the Romans, pp.500-501)
