Amos 5:18  Woe to you who long for the day of the Lord!  Why do you long for the day of the Lord? That day will be darkness, not light.

There seems to be a giddiness amongst conservative Christians at the possibility of Armageddon.  I think this simply comes from the joy people have at the suffering of sinners.  For some reason these loving and forgiving Christians can't wait for those evil liberal homosexual abortionists to finally get whats coming to them.  Not very nice.

1 Thessalonians 5:14-15  And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.

This letter from Paul was addressed to a group that was also overly concerned with the return of Christ, much like the Christian leaders are today.  Thus, their focus becomes idle and disruptive.  Since God will judge all, they ignore the weak and have patience for no one.
