Every generation has raised the alarm that the end is near. Whether it was war, famine, disease, or outright evil, proclamations of the end of the world have never been too far removed from the culture. Christianity has fed into this with countless so-called prophets predicting the second coming of the Lord. The Lord is coming back, but we know from Jesus Himself that no one knows when that day will be (Matthew 24:36).
That means every prediction about the timing of His return will be wrong. You would think with so many proclamations of how short time is that Christians would have lived like it was true at some point. But even after hundreds of years of predicted doom, we still carry on as if we have all the time in the world to make things right. So what if Jesus actually comes back today?
