No date for second coming

Almost 80 percent of U.S. Christians believe in the second coming of Christ to Earth.

But only 20 percent expect Jesus to return in their lifetime and 40 percent say the Bible doesn’t reveal the time of the event.

Half the respondents to the survey by the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C., said people and nations can’t affect that time.

I believe no one knows or should know.  We must act like it could happen at any time.  Who are those that claim to know? Beware the false prophet!

Our faith must keep us on the straight and narrow and prepare us for the second coming of Jesus Christ.  When HE comes, WE will know!
