I disagree. I'm 57 years old and I've been hearing that we're living in the last days for the past 57 years. According to one author, Jesus was supposed to usher in the last days when he returned in 2008.
I've been hearing about it just slightly less years than you've been hearing about it. In 1988, somebody gave me the "88 Reasons Why Jesus Will Return in 1988". Prior to that I went through college expecting every semester to be delivered from final exams by the rapture.
I don't believe in the rapture or Left Behind
fairy tales anymore. But I still believe in the end times. It's as deep inside as being gay.
