The world will end on December 21, 2012, according to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar. It shouldn't surprise us that some in our society have grabbed onto that to preach the end of the world.
It should surprise us when Christians do it. Yes, I've heard some do it.
When will the world end? Jesus said, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
And the Mayans.
Really? Why are we even having this conversation?
We don't know when the end will come. Maybe it will be a thousand years from now. Maybe it will be today. Plan like it's the former; live like it's the latter.
And maybe we should stop listening to people who want to predict the end.
