If we’ve learned one thing about major media sources like Fox News, Newsweek, National Geographic, and others over the past couple of weeks it’s that their fact-checking teams are about as sophisticated as the National Enquirer or World Weekly News.
Just look at these ridiculous headlines:
When Will The World End? Doomsday Theory Says Fiery Hell On Earth Kicks Off Saturday (Newsweek)
Why It’s Unlikely the World Will End on September 23 (National Geographic)
A Wave of Prophecies That the World Is Ending Saturday May Not Be Correct, It Turns Out (Slate)
World ending Saturday? Here are 8 times the world was supposed to end, and didn’t (USA Today)
Those creepy British tabloids are all over it too.
All of zero people have claimed that the world will end tomorrow – and that apparently includes David Meade. There are many theories about what might soon happen, but none of them involve the world ending on September 23, 2017 or anytime soon. The excitement surrounding September 23, 2017 has been generated because an astronomical alignment will appear that matches the description given in Revelation 12:1-2 quite literally. This much can be seen by anyone with a computer or mobile phone and observers in the Middle East will be able to see it with their own eyes if they look before sunrise and after sunset tomorrow.
Fox News and The Sun have already published corrections about the Saturday hoopla.
In any case, for those Christians who love Christ and long for Heaven (which should be all Christians, but unfortunately is not), there is an ongoing and natural expectancy for the return of the Lord. We don’t know for sure the day or hour, but we’re continually watchful and hopeful as all Christians are commanded to be (Lk. 12:35-46, 21:36; Matt. 24:42-51; 1 Thess. 5:4; Rev. 3:3). (Click to Site)
