The End is Here

I was taught my entire life - The End of The World is Coming.
Apocalypse. Armageddon. Revelation. Rapture.
Something to fear and shrink from.
Prepare thyself for the End.
And so I wait.
I spent three years afraid to sleep, imagining I heard the trump sound.

I don't think that is what God had in mind.
And yet they preach it.
They preach fear.
When we need courage.
They preach brimstone and anger.
When we need love and understanding.

The end is here.
Just not in terms a "christian" would understand.
The end is here.
Now, go be productive.

I've always thought it odd that a Preacher will stand at a pulpit, with a Bible in hand, and scream, "The end is near!"

Apparently he never read the part where it says, "No man knows the time."

Amazing how people who are so fond of heaven, are so affraid of the moment that gets them there.
