Doomsday Scenarios

According to Christianity the world will never end in such a way that humanity will end up extinct. It teaches that Jesus Christ will one day return to judge the living and the dead and usher in the Kingdom of God. The finer details concerning the return of Jesus and the "end of the world" (as we know it) are disputed among Christians. It is an in-house debate. HERE'S A LINK to one Christian webpage that contains articles from various Christian viewpoints on this topic of eschatology. I recommend starting with the page All Millennial Views. Since the broadest disagreement among Christians on the "End Times" is the issue of the millennium.

While Christianity denies the possibility of human extinction, it doesn't deny the possibility of future worldwide disasters. They have happened in the past and they may happen again. The following are some links to resources on Doomsday Scenarios. Any of the scenarios might happen if God doesn't intervene on time or providentially prevent or minimize it (or them) according to His sovereign plan.
Here's a link to Wikipedia's article on Christian eschatological views.
