The end of the world ~
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.” Second Timothy 3:1-5.
Christians believe this is just saying “how the last days on earth will be”, granted earth seems to be at that stage now, it has also been that way for a while. Who knows when enough is enough and God will decide to end the world. To most Christians, the end could be tonight, or it could be 100 years from now.
Now we will look at the scientific outlook. There are many, many ways (to scientists and strong believers of science) that the world could end. When searching on the internet, it seem that the most popular belief is that polar shifting will take place. If this were to happen, the Earth could have a 120 degree change within a short period of time which would cause dramatic change in the Earth’s magnetic fields. Also, another thing to look at is global warming. Scientists believe that every year the earth gets hotter and hotter because of the depletion of the ozone layer. Many believe that the solar system will move to the center of the galaxy by the end of 2012 (scientist don’t really know what this could cause; it could be catastrophic… or it could do nothing). There is also much much more that scientists predict will cause the end of the Earth. If you want to know more you can Google it.
In conclusion, I’m not saying the world will end, but I’m also not saying that it won’t. I will let you decide for yourself. Please feel free to comment below. Please also be respectful of others’ belief systems. Thank you.
