Welcome to the farthest point on the internet, the rural
backwoods of the digital domain. Welcome to Ponders Baptist
Church. Just like the song, we are that little church on the www

As a courtesy, Ponders would like to share with our readers what
the Bible says regarding the future. It's the least we can do. The
Apostle Paul had this to say:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall
come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection,
trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers
of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form
of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such
turn away.

The Apostle Peter weighed in similarly:

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days
scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where
is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell
asleep, all things continue as they were from the
beginning of the creation.

Sound familiar?

They had much more to say and so did many other Bible writers.
Taken together, the apocalyptic scriptures paint a unified picture
of a terrible landscape. Much suffering is on the way. Not to
worry, though, if you join the good team. Behind the terrible
landscape is a bright light on a distant horizon. The bright light
would be that gospel we keep telling you about. You remember,

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the
world to condemn the world; but that the world through
him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not
condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned
already, because he hath not believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation,
that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness
rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
