Two-Thirds of Christians Believe We Are Living in the End Times

It looks like most Christians feel the end times aren’t near, but here at least according to a recent survey from the Pew Research Center.

The report found four in 10 Americans believe we are currently living in the end times, including an eye-popping 63 percent of evangelicals.

It’s not hard to figure out why many think that. In just the last decade, we’ve seen a rise in destructive climate disasters and a deadly, life-altering virus that’s led to a years-long pandemic.

The belief we’re in the end times is also having a real-world effect in one area in particular: how people view climate change.

According to the survey, religious people are reportedly the least concerned about climate change. Pew found that 38 percent of Christians argue that the environment is in God’s hands and therefore we don’t need to worry about it. After all, if it’s all going to be over soon anyway, who cares about recycling?

(The counter-argument to that is, of course, God’s command in Genesis to take care of the Earth.)

The survey also found that 14 percent hold a premillennialism belief: Jesus will return after a worsening of global conditions leads to a low point for humanity. Only time will tell who is right in the pre-tribulation debate, but who knows — we may get our answer very soon.
