Many Christians believe we are getting closer to the start of the end times. However, many of these Christians do not study Bible prophecy. Why do so many Christians neglect to study Bible prophecy despite what is transpiring in the world? In this article, I explain why many Christians do not study Bible prophecy.
One of the main reasons why many Christians do not study Bible prophecy is that they are busy with their daily lives. Like most people, Christians have families to raise, careers to maintain, bills to pay, a social life, etc. As a result, many Christians do not have much time to devote to study Bible prophecy. It is certainly understandable because life is not easy and time is limited.
Another reason many Christians do not study Bible prophecy is that the subject terrifies them. Most people do not want to think about the notion that the sun will turn black and the moon will turn to blood as millions/billions of people die. Even though people might think they will never see these events, they still have fear reading/hearing about them. The fear is real. I have witnessed people become afraid when end time prophecy concepts are discussed. They become so afraid you can see it in their body language. I definitely was that way when I was younger.
Finally, many Christians do not study Bible prophecy because they hold the mindset that they will be removed from the earth before the tribulation begins. It’s understandable why many Christians would not care about Bible prophecy with that mindset. Why should a person worry about horrible things they believe they will not see?
- I want to acknowledge that there are people who study prophecy despite believing they will be removed before the tribulation. Therefore, I’m not saying or trying to imply that all people who believe they will be removed from the earth before the tribulation do not care about Bible prophecy.
