I Liked Eschatology Before Eschatology Was Cool

End of the World Index

es·cha·tol·o·gy (ěs’kə-tŏl’ə-jē)  

  1. The branch of theology that is concerned with the end of the world or of humankind.
  2. A belief or a doctrine concerning the ultimate or final things, such as death, the destiny of humanity, the Second Coming, or the Last Judgment.

That’s right – I liked eschatology before eschatology was cool.  Eschatology is the study of the end of all time.  Most churches, when dealing with this topic, either: a) avoid it completely, or b) focus on it too much.

We’re going to take the safe approach.  On Sunday, North Side is starting a brand new sermon series entitled “It’s the End of the World As We Know It.”  Let’s face it: some crazy stuff is happening in the world today.  The signs of the times are showing up all over the evening news.  But how close is the end?

On these Sundays in September, we are going to have our services geared towards the end times but approach the concept through God’s Word and not any popular book or theory.  Each week, we will have a different subtitle to the title about common attitudes about the end of all things:

  • Sept 6 – (And I Feel Apathetic)
  • Sept 13 – (And I Feel Confused)
  • Sept 20 – (And I Feel Scared)
  • Sept 27 – (And I Feel Fine)

We are so excited for this series to kickoff.  You can invite your friends on Facebook, or email them some information, or just show up on their doorsteps Sunday morning with a trumpet, tell them the end is near, and warn them to get to church.

Sundays @ 8:45, 9:45, 11:15.

If you knew the end of all things is near, how would you prepare?
