About 40 percent of Americans expect Jesus Christ to return within the next 40 years, although 46 percent say that hour probably won’t — or never will — come, according to a report in The Christian Post.
Those predictions, which The Christian Post gleaned from a Pew survey, are divided along religious lines, with 58 percent of white evangelical Protestants saying it will definitely or probably happen in the next four decades. By contrast, just 32 percent of Catholics and 20 percent of people without any religious affiliation say Christ will return to Earth in this time span.
The number who believe Jesus will return is not surprising, according to the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, which said 44 percent expressed the same belief in 1999. But it noted that the figures were much higher than a 2007 Ipsos poll asking whether Jesus would return to Earth that same year.
