Lately I’ve read enough doomsday and end-times scenarios to last me a lifetime! I mean, the fear-mongering and hopelessness in these so-called prophecies are eating away at the serenity of the mind. Jesus said to “Be Not Afraid.” He said that again and again in the Bible. And in speaking about the end of days he said in Matthew 24:36 “No one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself, ONLY THE FATHER KNOWS.”
So why persist in scaring people with talk of horrifying things and working them up with fear and hate? LIVE…now…full of joy, hope, kindness for others, faith, courage, peace, love, mercy, giving, forgiving… Create memories of great love and charity for all…not fears of others!! GOD IS LOVE. Why worry about death…it happens to all of us…to the best and the worst of us…it can’t be avoided. But we can make a choice how to live the life we have been graciously given, not wasting it with rancor and division. So, STOP preaching the destruction of the world and START making it a most loving, and hospitable place for all.
