I'm not a dispensationalist, so I don't have that "out" of their anticipated Rapture. With that in mind, if these are the end times, that would
make me a bit nervous, because by all accounts, it's going to suck, big time, for anyone that goes through it.
But I'm not convinced that we are living in those times. It's been an almost constant belief on the part of the faithful that they are the last
generation, and events point to Christ's immanent return, but it's been demonstrated wrong, time and time again. We're screwing up the planet to a
degree that I'm not sure anyone short of God could fix it, but we've not reached the tipping point yet, so I believe that we've still a ways to
Plus, we're in an environment of unprecedented communication and information exchange, so between the constant updates of news that, in the past, you
might not have gotten for months, if ever, and the popularity of predicting the end time (from The Late, Great Planet Earth to Left

With that in mind, I just set it all aside and live my life to reflect Christ's light into the world as best I can, same as everyone else has had the
opportunity to do over the last 2,000 years. If the end comes tomorrow, whether through my own demise, or Christ's return, all you can do is be
personally ready for it.
If Judgement Day comes tomorrow, the only ones who can complain about it are those who've chosen to live outside of God's grace, thinking that they
could repent at a later date. But they'd have the same complain if they got hit by a bus tomorrow, so why worry about Judgement Day?
