Wait a minute, you say. Surely the average Christian or Muslim or Jew don’t go around expecting the end of the world?
Well, think again. All Christians believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ, and can’t wait for it to happen. At which point Christians will be raptured into heaven, and the world as we know it will presumably perish, including all rotten non-believers who rejected the offering to accept Jesus as their Lord and saviour. This is central to Christan belief. If you don’t believe this, you’re not a true Christian.
Islam and Judaism have a very similar idea of the Eschaton.
Do you feel safer now?
