This is irresistable.
Time Magazine reports:
This has really been a banner year for catastrophe. Nearly half a million people have been killed in 2010 as a result of natural disaster. Now, despite the typical “end is nigh” rhetoric that is shouted from mountaintops every time tragedy strikes, our home planet is just really being herself and doing what she’s been doing for the last 4.5 billion years.
Sound familiar? It should.
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation (2 Peter 3:3-4).
These are not normal natural disasters but escalating supernatural calls to repent and believe the Gospel (2 Peter 3:9) before the Last Disaster (v.10).
