Special Edition: Thinking About the End Times

Today, December 21, 2012, marks the end of the world—or so say doomsday predictors. The “end times” are a common topic of speculation among Christians (remember the Left Behind series?) and the population in general. Particularly popular as of late (as indicated by the film 2012), theories based on an ancient Mayan calendar peg today as “the end” for life on Earth.

Obviously, no one’s doomsday foretelling—Christian, pagan, or otherwise—has proven true. As Jesus explains in Matthew 25, “you do not know the day or the hour” of his return. No one can know when Christ will return, only that we as believers need to be prepared at all times. It is very important that Christians think carefully and critically about end-times issues and avoid succumbing to hype.

To get equipped for dealing rationally and biblically with doomsday speculations, check out these resources from RTB.
