Some will Andy, the garden of Gethsemane is a good place to look, there all was failure for the disciples....indeed as far as the world was concerned it was ALL a dismal failure. However the disciples failed, Jesus did not fail.
I believe the church will collapse in a heap of betrayals, backstabbing .... if I did not believe in God's sure salvation I would be depressed. As it is I expect people to behave as people always behave.
My time is up...see yuh tomorrow
