(Apocalypse Obsessed Cultures, Heaven on Earth, Dystopian Future)

Erwin & Aaron invite us into a discussion of their favorite new TV show, Raised by Wolves, and explore why as a culture we're fascinated by apocalyptic stories. Erwin notes that it's not just Christians (or theists in general) that are obsessed with end-of-world narratives, but atheists are equally interested in such stories.

Is it possible that the ‘end of the world’ as we expect it has already happened? What if the accepted Christian interpretation of Jesus' second coming is wrong? Erwin challenges us with these questions and flips the conversation of the apocalypse into an opportunity as followers of Jesus to create Heaven on Earth - an idea realized through the understanding that Jesus is on earth through his followers, and we are the conduits in which Jesus is revealed to the world.

Rather than living for a future that is doomed to destruction or dystopia, Aaron and Erwin challenge humanity to create the future for the next generation, one that is more open and aware of itself. From climate change to social issues in our society, to war and violence, we are the vehicles in which the future is changed for the better and becomes God's kingdom on Earth.
