A fundamentalist Christian website called Signs of the End Times claims that the world will end in 2017.
According to Christian Today, the website points to various current events to make a case that the signs have aligned to signal the end of the world and the second coming of Christ.
The signs the website points to include natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes and also cultural shifts, such as the cultural attitude toward sexual immorality, as well as increased persecution of Christians.
“The Biblical signs are clear for all to see, and after reading through this site with open eyes, even the scoffers will struggle to argue against it,” says the website. “Sure, many people throughout history have been proclaiming that they were living in the last days and the end of the world was nigh, and some of the Bible signs have always existed from the early days. But never has there been a time before when ALL these events were evident in so many diverse places and with such frequency and intensity. Our Generation is the FIRST generation to fulfill ALL the biblical signs. So we will show you from the many following signs on this and other pages, that without doubt we are living in the final years that the Bible prophesied were to come.”
What do you think? Does the current state of world events point to an impending End Times?
