No, Christian, the End of the World Will NOT Be Soon

John Hagee is in the news. Hopefully this report is exaggerated, but I’ve seen Hagee’s TV show and it is quite believable. From Crooks and Liars: “Pastor Hagee: ‘Blood Moon’ Eclipse On Tuesday Means End Of The World By 2015.” On Tuesday, most of the United States will be treated to the first of four complete lunar eclipses — which scientists call a tetrad — occurring in six month intervals. The eclipses are often referred to as “blood moons” because as sunlight shines on the moon through Read more […]

Left Behind – Should Christians Be Known for End-of-the-World Fantasies?

I thought this Christian minister made a wise observation in classifying the forthcoming Left Behind movie with secular and horror fiction in general: In today’s news the picking of your poison has become a veritable smorgasbord.

Big-Name Evangelists Leading Church Astray

Troy Anderson, writing for WND, opens his first of seven articles with this line: “God’s prophet” – famed evangelist Billy Graham – is praying America will experience another “great spiritual awakening.” OK.

The article goes on to say: “At a time when many believe the midnight hour on God’s prophetic clock is fast approaching, major evangelists – Read more […]

My Final Thoughts on Tomorrow’s End of the World

The Los Angeles Times reports: “If there’s one government agency really looking forward to Dec. 22, it’s NASA. The space agency said it has been flooded with calls and emails from people asking about the purported end of the world — which, as the doomsday myth goes, is apparently set to take place on Dec. 21, 2012.” I find all of this kind of funny. Now evangelical prophetic sensationalists have to compete with the crazy New Agers. How many decades have we had to endure predictions of Read more […]

End of the World Predictions Will Increase in the Next Month

December 21, 2012 is around the corner. More than “3,000 books and countless websites claim that the Maya predicted the Earth will be destroyed on this date.” Tonight at 9 p.m. and midnight ET, Fox will be presenting “Countdown to Doomsday: 12.21.2012.” “The scenarios are truly frightening: The Earth will be destroyed by colliding with an asteroid or being pulled into the black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Others claim a galactic planetary alignment that will tear the Earth Read more […]
