We have, of course, the assurance of the New Testament regarding events to come (Matt 24:4-44; Mark 13:5-27; Luke 11:8-33). I find it difficult to keep from laughing when I find people worrying about future destruction of some kind or other. Didn’t they know they were going to die anyway? Apparently not.
