Birth Pains

Food production must be increased 70 percent to provide for the extra 2.4 billion people expected to come aboard planet Earth by 2050.

We have 42 years until we deplete our oil supplies at current usage.

Total global healthcare expenditure represent around 10% of world GDP.  Government portion of healthcare expenditure is around 60%

900 million people are undernourished.  1.5 Billion are overweight.

Over 7 million people die a year from starvation.

Over 770 million people are without access to clean drinking water.

Over 800,000 people have died from earthquakes around the world since 2000.

I didn’t even mention climate change, global warming, plague, volcanoes, war, etc.  These facts aren’t from the Bible, they’re from the news.  The following is from the Bible:

Mark 13:5 Jesus said to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 6 Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. 7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.
