The End Is Near…Again.
So…I was directed on Facebook to please watch this “amazing” video that somehow is a compilation of the “signs of the times” pointing to the imminent return of Christ.
It is twenty minutes of unexplained bird deaths and other inexplicable natural phenomena that has taken place since the Fall but this is just last years edition.
The Olivet Discourse was invoked….of course.
My response was less than polite…had the internet been around when Krakatoa exploded or Crater Lake erupted we’d have had people on the rooftops wearing their Rapture robes eagerly awaiting the Second Coming.
Then we would have had video of them climbing down off the roof soon thereafter…
As a modified dispensationalist I find this sort of sensationalism utterly embarrassing…and it gives unbelievers reason to mock an important doctrine.
The question before the house is this…what are we trying to prove with this sort of reporting?
What are really “signs of the times” and what are natural phenomena that have gone on since the beginning of time?
