    This is so illogical that I don't understand why CNN wants their name on it. Here is what CNN Blogger John Blake said about Hal Lindsey for teaching that these are the last days:

    'In 1970, an unknown pastor from Texas wrote a book called “The Late, Great Planet Earth.” The book, which linked biblical prophecy with political events like Israel’s victory in the 1967Six-Day War, predicted the imminent return of an antichrist and the end of the world....

    'That end-times theology can turn lethal, though, when a follower decides that he or she will speed up that end-time by conducting some dramatic or violent act, says John Alverson, chairman of the theology department at Carlow University in Pittsburgh.'

    True, Blake does not claim that Hal Lindsey, a very nice person, calls for violence to hasten the end of the world. In fact, it is not Christian to call for violence to hasten the end of the world in spite of what the chairman of the theology department at Carlow University in Pittsburgh says.

    In reality, it is John who says that these are the end-times:

    1 John 2:18 (KJV) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

    Here is the link to CNN's rather shallow John Blake who tries to equate true Christianity with the cults and Islamofascism:
