It may just be my 38 years as a protestant talking before becoming Orthodox, but I honestly do believe we are in the End Times or right on the edge. I really didn’t think we would make it this far. I did A LOT of study on this stuff as a Baptist and there are just too many things to ignore. However, having said all this, I love, love, love the Orthodox approach. No one cares! My priest explained it to me this way. If we all are living the way we should, what difference does it make? Kind of puts things into proper perspective. There is far too much about End Times ideas and possibilities to talk about it on a forum, but I say live each day as if the end were tomorrow.
