Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
This era has known no lack of doomsday predictions.
Many of you will remember Hal Lindsey’s best-selling The Late Great Planet Earth,
and the billboards proclaiming the end of the world in May 2011,
or those who believed that since the calendar of the ancient Mayans
ended at the winter solstice of 2012,
there would be no more days after that.
But doomsday predictions are not confined to today,
and they are not just the province of the uneducated.
