It's "news" that's meant to evoke fear and easily does so. Apocalyptic porn describes "news" that is, for the most part, fiction and fantasy meant to create panic in the Christian community. And, Facebook is the perfect vehicle to spread this porn. Daily I see posts about what Obama is going to do, what the government plans, the terrible things just ahead that we need to "know."
It would be fascinating if it weren't just so absurd! Here's an example of a headline a friend sent to me,
"CDC Whistleblower Exposes Ebola Vaccinations Containing RFID Chips"
Not only is this article fear driven, but it plays on the fears of any Christian who believes the "end of days" are near. What if the government is planning to plant chips in the populace? What will we do???? Fear, doubt, and panic do their dirty work and we become obsessed with these silly stories instead of sharing the good news with those around us who aren't ready for the end of days.
Apocalyptic porn it is and it's time for Christians to put down the porn and get about the real business of trusting God and doing what he told us to do!
