Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 While in his second year at Yale, Noyesmade what he considered a major theological discovery. While attempting to determine the date of the second coming of Christ,Noyes became convinced that the eventhad already occurred. His conclusion was that Christs secondcoming had taken place in 70 AD and that therefore"mankind was now living in a new age."With this in mind Noyes became increasingly concerned with salvation from sinand with perfection. He began to argue with hiscolleagues that unless man was truly free of sinthen Christianity was a lie, and that only those who were perfect and free of sinwere true Christians.
