End Times, or End of Times are phrases used by Christians, and particularly Fundamentalist Christians which refer to the events predicted in the Bible to precede the second coming of Christ, and the beginning of the end of the World.
The approach of End Times have been predicted by some Christians since the death of Jesus. A few Fundamentalist Christians even want the approach of End Times, and carefully watch events in the hope of seeing or even hastening the coming of End Times. Those people who are not Fundamentalist Christians are very alarmed by this behavior, and believe that at best it promotes a preference for short-term solutions to problems, and at worst to policies designed to promote conflict. References to the approach of End Times by Fundamentalist politicians are interpreted by most people as dangerous insanity.
