    I am writing to let you know that I really enjoy your program and that I want to shed a little more light on the ?world without end? phrase.

    We, as Anglican and those of the Catholic traditions, have those words in many of our prayers as we close them. They remind us that the world God created, will never end, and that our hope lies in the fact of God?s eternal Providence.

    Rev. James Cloud
    Salem, Oregon

    During the Christmas program I was a little hard on some of the Anglicans and Episcopalians, but there are great men of God in the movement just like this brother wrote.

    They informed us that in the Anglican and Catholic prayers. They pray world without end, which is Isaiah 45:17 & Ephesians 3:21.

    When the Pope announced that he did not believe the world would ever end, what he was saying is he no longer agrees with Saint Augustine who started this end of the world theology, and it?s all wrong.

    120 times this book says it won?t end and that the earth abides forever ? Ecclesiastes 1:4

    Im not too sure if im understanding this correctly, Van Impe supports world without end? I thought fundamentalist believed after the tribulation God will destroy the earth.

    taken literally there are 400 contridictions on the subject. Metaphorically they dissappear.

    Dr. Van Impe teaches that the earth itself may come under limited nuclear conflagration, but that it would survive intact with limited damage. He believes that a God of love would never destroy the earth that he created.
