Are the end times upon us? This has been a central question among Christians for the past two millennia, though recent events have once again catapulted eschatology to the theological forefront. Greg Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, discusses what Scripture says about the end of days — an oft-times avoided or played down topic in some houses of worship.
“I don’t know why more people don’t want to talk about eschatology or end-times events because Bible prophecy is not given to scare us but to prepare us,” he said. “And not only that, but I think it motivates us.” Laurie continued, “Talking about these things can be very motivating for Christians to keep us on our toes spiritually.”
