World scheduled to end today. News at 11.

So you’ve probably heard of the Large Hadron Collider that’s being turned on today.There are a group of people who are worried that the LHC will somehow manage to destroy the earth. Ok everybody, all together now, to the tune of the Eastenders theme: “Everyone is gonna die; we’re all gonna be killed in a variety of different ways”. (Apologies to Bill Bailey).

I’m not worried about the LHC – not just because the chances of the LHC actually doing something to destroy the earth are minute.

Do you want to learn the Bible and the Christian faith online? Check out my new resource:

I read this passage this morning which actually seems to sum it up quite nicely:

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. — Colossians 1:15-17

God is the one who holds all things together. The universe isn’t going to end unless he says so. And, we know what that means – Paul said, “For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21). If the LHC does cause the end of the world, it will be God’s appointed time and I don’t have anything to fear.

Aaaanyway, I’ll stop rambling on about it… just something that struck me this morning!
