No Utopian Hope

A Christian's hope is not utopian.

He expects progress but not the perfection which will only come by God's own act at the final coming of Christ. He can cope with human failure without despair, because he trusts "the God of hope" (Rom 15:13) whose kingdom is surely coming.
—S. H. Travis, "Hope," in New Dictionary of Theology, 322.
