About a week ago, this startling news-alert window popped up on the screen of my computer tablet. The first three sentence fragments plus the question sounded like attention-getters on the front cover of a prophecy lecture brochure.

But then the Post confidently suggests that “we can predict when humans will go extinct.” I pulled up the article a few days later and discovered that—in the view of the writer of the piece—we can relax, because we won’t be snuffed out for at least another 3,000 years (based on a complicated formula whose mathematical underpinnings I do not understand).

Well, I’ve got news for the Post and its industrious writer: you can’t figure out the end of the world by mathematics. You need input from this world’s Creator. Which means, of course, that you first need to discover that God’s written words are credible. So if Bible credibility is an issue for you, click the first link below. Then click the second link, which tells what Jesus and others said about how the world will end. As any disaster expert—and any Boy Scout—will tell you, Be prepared!
