This is the last day of this school semester, so I am rather excited. I have plenty of things I have been wanting to talk about, but really have not had the time to put them down. So I have until the end of next week to try and share it all, because as you know the world will end next Saturday.
I think it is supposed to end. Maybe it is just the rapture or zombies will appear. Either way May 21st will be an important day for something.
Personally, I don’t plan on the world ending. I think that when Jesus comes back, it will coincide with the Feast of Trumpets. Downside with that is that I will miss my birthday, but living in heaven is better so I really should not complain.
Most people do not think the world is going to end. I have seen people touting the fact that Harold Camping is a Calvinist as if it is some sort of victory for their side. I have heard people say, rightfully so, that there is no way we can actually calculate the day it is going to happen. What gets me the most is that people say the world is not fallen enough for it to happen.
Why is it not fallen enough?
I love end of days type movies. Post apocalyptic movies are wonderful too. I am a huge Mad Max fan. The way we see the darkness that humanity can accomplish. How far people will sink and what will be considered acceptable is really an interesting testimony in a way. As people we all know that the darkness lurks within people and that once society stops caring then we will begin the journey to the end. The problem that isn’t addressed is that the degradation of society is a gradual process. Each step will offend us and we either adapt and accept it or stand and fight it. The more we accept though, the further down the path we travel.
Mother’s killing children is barely a news worthy even now unless you are Nancy Grace. Men are killing their wives/girlfriends ever more frequently. Drug use is up and so are drug related crimes. Corruption, while not acceptable, is tolerated because we do not seem to have an alternative. More and more underage girls are giving birth and the media makes them into stars. Poverty is rampant but we do not see society making an effort to meet their needs.
Society tolerates this. We might not see the world as fallen enough, but with the complacency of society, does our standard of what is too bad keep moving as well?
