One of the common criticisms of the Bible is that it is irrelevant, a human product full of mistakes.
Of course, the reality is, it’s neither of those things. As is discussed in this space—and will be a theme we hammer again and again—Bible prophecy is a jarring proof that Scripture is far ahead of its critics. It is a tremendous source of comfort for the rest of us.
There’s a lot of fear these days. A news report just from today tells us that widespread layoffs of state employees from around the country could commence this summer; many states are broke.
