The Forever Imminent Apocalypse

All of you know that Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation. In fact he will only be pope for a couple more days. In several news and gossip articles, there is mention the Prophecy of the Popes. According to this prophecy, Pope Benedict XVI (soon to be Bishop Joseph Ratzinger) is the second-to-last pope of the Catholic Church. The next pope is supposed to see us to the end of the world, or at least the end of the “city of seven hills” (most likely Rome).

Let’s just say that this is likely just another apocalypse theory. It seems that people can’t go long without finding some other possible way and time for the world to end. Yes, the world will end some time, but it’s very likely that it won’t end in the next one thousand years. If homo sapiens can manage to live until the end of the Solar System, then there is nothing to fear for the next 4.5 billion years. That’s according to scientists’ prediction of when the Sun will cease to exist as it is now. For those of you who are Christian, here’s a quote from the Book of Matthew (KJV):

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

~ Matthew 24:35-36

Remember, there will always be someone out there who says “the end is nigh.” It is your choice whether you believe this, but no one will really know when the world ends. In the grand scheme of things, it does not matter when the world will end. What really matters is what we say and what we do in the present.

Also, God bless Bishop Joseph Ratzinger and whomever the next pope will be.

  1. Yep, no one knows but the Father. What will it take to get supposed Christians to really believe what Christ said? 😀
