People seem to be freaking out about the near future. I don’t know why as a Christian.
It is sadly ironic that Jesus said, “Make sure that you are not alarmed, for this must happen” and yet so many people are freaking out.
When publishers print “the-sky-is-falling” books, it sends the wrong message to God’s people.
Honestly, I am so sick of hearing about so-called “prophecy experts” out there. There is so much misinformation and sensationalism. Evidently it sells.
What is happening in the world should bring comfort not trepidation. And I place the blame of causing consternation squarely at the feet of pretribulational authors.
If people are freaking out right now, I can only imagine how quickly they will lose their faith when they see the Antichrist emerge—let alone be faced with the threat of their head cut off —an event they were taught they would be raptured before it happens.
Greg Laurie just published an article attempting to “comfort” the church saying that we will be raptured out of here before the Antichrist and the impending bad times come.
I could go on with my lament.
All I can do is shake my head in grief and pray that the church will biblically sober up soon before it is too late.
