American Vision, a Georgia-based Christian worldview ministry, will hold a National Prophecy Conference at the Lifeway Ridgecrest Conference Center in Ridgecrest, North Carolina, from June 1–4, 2011, to evaluate the soundness of the current evangelical obsession with speculative prophecy, and assesses its impact on the resurgence of the New Christian Right.

For the past 40 years, popular Christian writers and speakers have been predicting the end of the world with little success.  Unfortunately, the perennial failure of these prognostications has not adequately dissuaded a growing swell of evangelicals who continue to fall prey to constant calls of “the end is near . . . Jesus is coming soon . . . we’re living in the last days.”

Convicted that the present flood of end-times warnings are not only misleading millions of people, but are also impugning the credibility of the church and its message, American Vision has assembled a 7-member conference panel to discuss this growing threat to the integrity of the Christian religion and the authority of the Bible.

Here are SOME of the questions that will be presented and answered:

1.        Are modern wars “signs of the end”?

2.       Is the modern nation of Israel a fulfillment of Bible prophecy?

3.       Does the Jewish temple have to be rebuilt?

4.      Is the “Antichrist” alive right now?

5.       Is Modern-Day Russia an end-time prophetic player?

6.      Is the national ID card the “mark of the beast”?

7.       Do recent earthquakes, floods, and reports of the death of birds, fish, and cattle have any bearing on the end of the world?

In addition, there will be numerous talks on particular prophetic texts and evening forums for open discussion.

To provide balance to the discussion, American Vision has invited speakers from opposing viewpoints to participate in a series of open forums.
