A Brief History of the Apocalypse

Among the most email I’ve ever received concerning a single column about one I wrote a couple of weeks ago called “The ‘End of Days’ Daze.” It was about how each generation has their share of people saying that the end of the world is near.

If you’re wondering how often that happens, today I stumbled upon “A brief history of the apocalypse.” The opening page is the year 2800 B.C. to 1700, and then subsequent years can be seen by clicking on the tabs at the top of the page. Wow, that’s a lot of apolcalyptic predictions, and yet here we are.

I sincerely wish those fellow Christians who are making constant “end of days” predictions would stay on focus and stop treating Revelations and other books of the Bible like it’s a big Armageddon-esque Jumble puzzle in the morning paper.
