What’s With All This “End Time” Stuff?

Gayle Irwin (one of my favourite people) when asked if he believed we were living in the “end time” replied something to the effect of “Do you see things in the world, socially and environmentally getter better or worse? The answer being obvious he added, “Guess we must be then.” (He said it much better but I can’t find the quote.)

Whatever field you look at today world peace, health, social, economic and environmental stability, things seem to be growing worse and worse. When I was young the great question on people’s minds was, “how best to turn things around,” now it seems more like “how long have we got?”

I’m not a conspiracy theorist but I can read the writing on the wall and it doesn’t look good. The very governments we should look to, to avert these catastrophes have been waylaid by the dollar bills of big corporations. Can we trust them? I very much doubt it. I think 9/11 set the seal on that one for many. (The truth of what happened is debatable but one fact is without doubt, the US government story does not hold water, why are they lying? What are they hiding?)

So are we living in the “end time?” Sure looks like it, if not now, soon! Christian, atheist or other there’s not much avoiding the issue (other than burying your head in a TV set and hoping it will go away). The blessing of being a Christian at such a time is that if “all these things come to pass,” (things predicted which we are worrying about now) the happy ending must too (we sneaked a look at the last page!)
