(CHRISTIAN HEADLINES) – About 2 in 5 Americans agree that “we are living in the end times,” according to a recent study from Pew Research.
The study showed that end-time believers either believe Jesus will return to Earth someday and life will worsen until then (14 percent), or they simply believe these are the end times (25 percent). About 20 percent of Christians believe that Jesus will return after global circumstances worsen.
Christian views on end times are most often categorized as premillennialism, amillennialism, and postmillennialism. Premillennialism is the idea that the world will gradually improve, and the 1,000 years happens before Jesus’ return to Earth. Amillennialism says that Jesus’ reign is figurative and already happening now, while premillennialism says the return of Jesus will begin a 1,000-year reign, but until then, the world situation may worsen.
