Let’s Get Started:
As we watch a steady decline in the morals and values of a society we often hear a lot of talk about the end of the earth. Many refer to this end time as the Apocalypse. Some people have claimed to know the day and time of the world’s end, only to see the very day they gave as the end come and go without incident.
There is yet another line of thinking that seems to assert that man is still advancing toward a greater potential; a better way of thinking and living. A society of peace where all people are respected for their beliefs and free to live as they desire.
Still others speak of a great doom that will come upon humanity. We will become ravaged by disease and brought to the brink of extinction. Forced to live a life that is constantly on defense against some threat like zombies or creatures from distant planets.
Jesus answers our questions about the end of our time on Earth by telling us what to expect. But He doesn’t tell us when.
