Eschatology is a vastly popular topic. Do you realize how many people who are only vaguely Christian or not even Christian at all believe these prophesies may come true? It's not so much a function of fundamentalism as it is a socialogical trend that has existed for centuries upon centuries. It's an interesting phenomena that the majority of people seem to want to be there to see the end of the world, like a collective death wish shearly for a desire to live in "interesting times".SOS said:There are many Christians who believe in the End Time or Last Days. The Rapture is a glorification that born-again evangelicals tend toward. However, I feel the percentage is much larger than most people realize--I posted a statistic back when of the % of Americans who believe the Bible to be literal. In any event, here's some reading for those who like:
A 2002 Time/CNN poll found that 59 percent of Americans believe that the prophecies found in the Book of Revelations are going to come true.
