Q: A few weeks ago, a friend gave me a book in which the author tells exactly when Jesus is going to return (and he claims it’s not far away). He says the Holy Spirit revealed it to him in a dream. Could he be right? — W.G
A: There is no good reason to believe Jesus will be appearing on Earth in the near future or ever. In fact, there is no good reason to believe Jesus ever walked the Earth or that he and his father god ever existed.
Certain types of religionists have been claiming that the end times or the second coming of Jesus are imminent throughout the last 2,000 years. (The bible itself seemed to indicate that Jesus would return during the lifetime of the Twelve Apostles.) Obviously, this has not happened. Either these people are delusional (even more so than the average believer) or are taking advantage of other people’s fears for their own benefit.
If you are a pet owner and still believe the Rapture is imminent and that you are likely to be taken to heaven, you may want to heed these tips about post-Rapture pet care or even hire this service to care for your pets.
