Why All the Fascination with the “End Times?”
Posted by Clare

Every few years, my former pastor, now with Jesus, used to ask the congregation for topics on which they’d most like him to teach. “The End Times,” the events leading up to Jesus return, the judgment and the eternal kingdom of God were always in the top five. Above all, “when will Jesus return?”

Our Single Adults pastor used to joke, the most three popular topics for unmarried Christians were;

  1. End Times
  2. Sex
  3. Sex in the End Times

So, why all the fascination with End Times and in specific, trying to pin-point when Jesus will return?

Was Jesus “Soft On Crime?”
Posted by Clare

I think most Christians believe the God of the Old Testament was fearsome. He spoke from Mount Sinai words that terrified the Israelites. He gave them hundreds of laws and commanded harsh penalties for disobedience. He actually killed 25,000 Israelites once for disobeying his command to not intermarry with other nations.

To be fair, God also declared his love for his people time and time again, but disobedience wasn’t an option. He was a God to be both loved and feared.

Then along came Jesus. “Meek and Mild” Jesus. The forgiver of the woman caught in adultery and of Peter who denied him. He even asked the Father to forgive the soldiers nailing him to the cross. It’s easy to think of Jesus as being soft on sin – a kinder, more gentle version of the Old Testament God.
