The Biblical Apocalypse has been coming "real soon now" since Jesus was alive. In those thousands of years, the End Times have been predicted,
probably for each year. So far, the world keeps limping along somehow. It's only going to end once, and any specific time suggested is almost
certainly *NOT* the time.
Waiting for the Tribulation, etc., is a cop out. It is a flimsy excuse for not working hard to fix the problems. "Why bother - the End Times are
here anyway, so we may as well sit back and let the world go to hell." The Rapture is not an exit policy.
Nowhere in the Bible have I ever seen anything that says, "Sit on your ass and let God do it". Everywhere I've looked, it says, "You do your
part, and God will do His". Go ahead and trust in God or Jesus or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, whatever floats your boat. But get out there and
work to help fix what's broken. If God comes to the rescue, great. Nothing is lost, for our having made the effort. If not, then the only way
it's ever going to be fixed is if we do it ourselves.
