First of all, I think it’s important to note that I do NOT think the world will end on May 21, 2011. While I do hold to the belief that Jesus is coming back for his followers and count myself among them, the wacko (Harold Camping) believes he knows the day and is spreading the “news” like wildfire. Unfortunatly, this makes light of the very real fact that Jesus is coming back. But the Bible is clear that no man knows the day.
So, what does this blog post have to do with all of this? I was inspired to put together a playlist for the end of the world. I was looking for songs that either deal directly with the apocalypse or are “end of the world” like in nature. And of course I’ve linked up any to youtube that I could find.
