But praying that Jesus doesn't come is rather anti-biblical in nature. 
Not blasphemous or evil, just more a self-interested request than a 
big-picture request. I was there myself at one point, but I learned 
better. This world sucks; It's hard and unforgiving, two qualities Jesus 

Now, of course, if I was 85 years old, I'd be praying for Jesus to come 
as well (as a matter of self-interest).


>Anyhow the second point is that "Christ will come like a thief in the
Let's take a gander at this quote:

"For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a 
thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then 
sudden destruction comes on them, as travail on a woman with child; and 
they shall not escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness, that that 
day should overtake you as a thief. You are all the children of light, 
and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness."
- I Thessanlonians 5:1-5 [AKJV]

Coming like a "thief in the night" is for unbelievers not for believers. 
If it catches you like a thief in the night then there's something wrong.


>This always makes me believe that the world will actually get much better.
Better is relative. We are being conditioned by the media to think what 
we have is okay no matter how bad it gets. We'll be used to wars, 
violence and crazy sins by the time the end comes, so the horrible today 
will look normal tomorrow.

You should take a read through Daniel, Ezekial and Revelations. Jesus 
comes to save whoever is left alive. If He didn't come when he does, no 
life would be left. How good could that be?


>Obviously this is only my opinion and probably not biblical at all.
>I need to read more, I know.
Indeed, but don't feel like you're alone. We all start from nothing and 
build our knowledge. It's just that way life works.
