Category:Apocalypticists

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apocalypticism is the religious belief that there will be an apocalypse, a term which originally referred to a revelation of God's will, but now usually refers to belief that the world will come to an end time very soon, even within one's own lifetime.[citation needed] This belief is usually accompanied by the idea that civilization will soon come to a tumultuous end due to some sort of catastrophic global event.[citation needed]

Apocalypticism is often joined to esoteric knowledge that will likely be revealed in a major confrontation between good and evil forces, destined to change the course of history.[citation needed] Apocalypses can be viewed as good, evil, ambiguous or neutral, depending on the particular religion or belief system promoting them. They can appear as a personal or group tendency, an outlook or a perceptual frame of reference, or merely as expressions in a speaker's rhetorical style.[citation needed]
