The End May Not Be Near

February 10, 2014

The end may not be near.

Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s I was bombarded with predictions and prophecies about the end of the world. I was on the tale end of the The Late Great Planet Earth by Hal Lindsey craze and on the front end of the Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth’s Last Days by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins hoopla.

I’ve seen multiple predictions about the 2nd coming come and go.

What if the end times may not happen in our lifetime? Or another hundred lifetimes for that matter.

Richard Abanes, in his fascinating book, End-Time Visions: The Road to Armageddon, details how every generation from Christ til the present day have thought they were the ones to see the return of Christ.

So far they have all been wrong.
