Secular Humanism’s Future: Global Government

My book, Starting at the End, focuses on worldviews and their vision of the future.  Here is what Secular Humanism sees. “Man is at last becoming aware that he alone is responsible for the realization of the world of his dreams, that he has within himself the power for its achievement. He must set intelligence and [&hellip

What will the future bring?

All worldviews have a vision of the future. That’s what my book, Starting at the End, explores.  Many believe that history is moving in a straight line toward an exact goal. This is called a linear view of history. Everyone wonders what that future goal will bring. In a naturalistic worldview, devoid of the supernatural realm [&hellip

After Christ’s return and Judgment Day, the eternal states of heaven and hell begin.  Let’s look at descriptions of hell first. In hell,  unbelievers will experience damnation and eternal separation from God in both body and soul. Hell is pictured as a place of weeping and gnashing teeth (Matthew 8:12), where both body and soul will [&hellip

Jesus and the future: Judgment Day (Part 10)

After Jesus returns to earth and the dead are resurrected, judgment will commence. Isaiah 24:21 says, “In that day the LORD will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below.” In other words, both the natural and supernatural realms will be subject to judgment, whether the inhabitants are demonic [&hellip

Jesus and the future: Resurrection (Part 9)

When Christ returns on the last day, all people will be resurrected.  If death can be defined as separation of the soul from the body, the final resurrection reverses this consequence of the Fall into sin. Ecclesiastes 12:7 notes “the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who [&hellip

Jesus and the future: Signs before Jesus’ return (Part 7)

In Matthew 24:21-29, Jesus returned to the other question that the apostles posed, “What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Just before the Lord’s return, signs would appear that would make His return clear to Christians. “For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning [&hellip

Jesus and the future: The Temple’s Destruction (Part 6)

In the next part of Jesus’ revelations regarding the future, He turns His attention to Jerusalem in 70 AD. Matthew 24:15-20 finally answers the apostles’ initial inquiry: when will the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem take place? “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through [&hellip

Jesus and the future: The Age of Tribulation continued (Part 5)

The last days will not be dire for Christians alone. Jesus also related that the world would get worse, not better. He said there will be an increase of wickedness. Contrast Jesus’ perspective of the future with the previous worldviews. It is not a glorious future of peace and harmony due to world government, a [&hellip
