A great many people have little enthusiasm for being free and autonomous. Such a prospect terrifies them! Most want to “have a place,” to be a piece of the “in” swarm, to be in the place where the “activity” is. They need to hitch their wagon to a “cause,” to a religious or political master – a idea that will in any event, loan a feeling of direction to their generally hopeless reality. Thus, many are ready to end up as “genuine adherents” to a political or religious cult!
I’d like to make a few comments in response those who would mock former members of the Worldwide Church of God. Get over it, they say. “Nobody held a gun to your head.”

Bible prophecy reveals the significance of today’s world events, and how they will lead up to Jesus Christ’s return to this earth. No other book does this, and in such detail. The first years of the 21st century have seen the resurgence of militant religion around the world, the rise of international terrorism, devastating earthquakes and global climate changes that have spawned famines, floods, hurricanes, and disease epidemics threatening the future of life on this planet. The Bible has long predicted that these same events will be part of an end-time scenario that will precede Jesus Christ’s return to this earth (see Matthew 24; Revelation 6). The Scriptures also predict the end-time appearance of a revived European superpower with links to the Roman Empire, and a powerful religious figure of global stature (see Daniel 2; 7; Revelation 13; 17; 18). At this time, Scripture predicts, the United States and British-descended nations will decline as major world powers (for more on this topic, request our free booklet The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy). Though skeptics may scoff, these events prophesied in the pages of the Bible are coming to pass today. Just read the news! The Bible can be trusted!
