The world didn’t end today, as was predicted by some idiots

23 Sep

Apparently the world was supposed to end on September 23, 2017.

But, once again, it didn’t.

What part of “no-one knows the hour” do they not understand?

    My own pastor succumbed to this nonsense. I’m very tempted to make a snide remark this morning, but I think I’ll reserve any comments for the next time he chooses to indulge in End Times hysterics once the next “existential threat” emerges.

    Bottom line: it’s all about manipulating people, and sadly, “church people” are some of the world’s most easily manipulated humans (as I said over at Dalrock’s earlier today, Jesus’s admonition to be “wise as serpents, but gentle as doves” went right in one ear and out the other, especially the “wise” part).

    Even if someone did sneak a peek at God’s calendar and see “Judgement Day” marked with a big red circle, God would change the date, because He will not be scooped.

      Exactly. It will be on His timetable, and no-one will see it coming.

    They always forget that part where Christ states that the end will come like a thief in the night..ie unexpected and unlooked for.

    Every generation thinks that the events of its own lifetime represent the coming of the Apocalypse. This has been the case ever since John penned the Book of Revelation. I begin to believe that it’s a form of supreme collective arrogance, as well as an unholy presumption, for us to think that what we’re experiencing has absolutely no historic antecedent whatsoever, that Scripture that is at best vague about the End Times can be stated with certainty to represent events of the current era, and that we have some right to bombastically demand that Jesus reappear according to our worldly timetable.

    In short, we need to get the fark over ourselves.

    As I mentioned to some of my brethren after the message today (titled, somewhat predictably, “Jesus Is Coming”): it doesn’t matter whether He comes tonight or 10,000 years from now. If we’ve given ourselves to Him, have repented of our sins, asked and accepted His forgiveness, and are striving to do His work, we’re ready for His return at any moment. The events of the temporal world shouldn’t matter to us and we need to stop obssessing over them.

        Yes, finally wisdom. You should be ready for God AT ANY MOMENT. He can strike you dead whenever He likes.

        Hell is eternal.
