The End Times Are Near
ChristiaNet.com, a large Christian portal with eight million monthly page loads, recently asked, "Are we living in the end times?" President of ChristiaNet, Bill Cooper, stated, "The Bible provides the signs that Christians are to notice when the end is near."
Out of 1,700 Christians surveyed, 85% believed that we were living in the end times. "The signs are all there if you read the Bible. It is indisputable," quotes a survey taker. One Christian believed, "Because of the signs that we are experiencing like false prophets, wars, diseases, we are in the end times." Another poll taker commented, "It scares me to think how God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, and yet how immorality has taken over this country. There seems to be no shame in this area." Most in this category felt that the state of our nation was similar to the prophecies mentioned in the Bible and that those prophecies were slowly coming true each year.
Ten percent were unsure about their response to the survey. Reasons cited included, "We as Christians just live the best we can and should not concern ourselves with the future" and, "It may seem like it is close to the end, but only God knows for sure and He is the only one who can end this earth age." Others included in this category could not answer because they "do not know the Bible well enough to say whether or not we are living in the end times."
Only five percent of those polled did not feel that the end times were near, "World without end...isn't that what the Bible says? There have been plenty of other times in history when people thought the world would end...remember Y2K?" Survey takers who responded with a "no" to the survey also felt that, "Anyone who would be so bold to say we are is a non-believer or a cult. "Another poll taker responded in disagreement, "Because, it will happen when we least expect it, and if everyone expects it, then it must not be the time for this world to end."
To help educate Christians on the topic of the end times, ChristiaNet has just released a free End Times Signs Quiz. Using the latest interactive technology, one can test their Biblical knowledge on issues facing the Christian community.
