    In light of all that is going on in the world, do you believe we are living in the last decade or century? Or has the world pendulum always swung back and forth?

    With the reestablishment of Israel, many have said that we are in the last 70-80 years of existence. If one counts 70-80 years from 1948 (the official beginning of Israel as a modern country) that puts you at about 2018-2028.
    Other signs of the end include intolerance towards religion (especially Christianity) which is fairly prevelant throughout the Left worldwide and a worldwide government (the UN, anyone?).

    I think it depends on if you're a Bible believer or not.

    The Bible's truthfulness doesn't depend on someone to believe it to make it true...

    Agreed. So what's your point?

    All I was saying is that I think if you believe what the Bible says, you already know the answer.

    We are definately approaching the end game. People tend to dwell on the death and destruction part. The Second Coming and the time proceeding it will be a time of hope for the Saints. the time when the Lord shall pour out His Spirit upon His people stronger than any time in history.

    We may have some tough times, but these are the days to live in. time for the new greatest generation to arise:)

    Give another few years for the uranium core theory to be proven or disproven. If it is true, then life on Earth may be finished soon as the evidence is the fission at the core is dying off, and without this the van-allen belts vanish and walla, the Earth is barren in a few years.

    Before you laugh, there is some fairly convincing evidence for a uranium core (and some good counter-arguments), and it makes sense in explaining what happened to Mars.

    But don't only about 2 million sons of Abraham get into heaven when this happens? Arn't these "His people"?

    I think that the next U.S. president will have a large influence in the Mid east. Although its ultimately God's will that will be done, we here on Earth are just His tools / instruments.
