Neal McDonouggh on His Latest Film that Depicts End Times
Actor Neal McDonough has had a successful career in Hollywood, but his latest project, "The Apocalypse Chronicles," is unlike anything he's ever done.
According to the Christian Post, the film, which explores the aftermath of the biblical rapture, is directed by Kevin Sorbo, who also stars in the movie and will be released on Friday. McDonough said it was a "privilege" to be a part of the cast and shared some insight on his character, Alex Sterling, a powerful and wealthy businessman who plays a critical role in the "The Apocalypse Chronicles" narrative.
The actor candidly shared his beliefs as a Catholic. He spoke about how his faith has played a significant role in his life's successes, including finding a cherished partner, raising a loving family, and having a diversified acting career. McDonough said he feels incredibly "grateful" when he reflects on all that he has achieved.
In an article in Faith Wire, he mentioned that being in front of the camera is his second most cherished place after being with his wife, Ruve McDonough. He also mentioned his policy of not participating in sexual scenes and how it has been a media conversation topic.
He expressed that the message he hopes the movie "Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist" conveys the importance of self-belief and having faith in God and oneself. He encourages people not to fall prey to negative influences and to always turn to God for guidance.

The belief of End Times Among Americans
The concept of end times is hard to believe but is scary to occur. Many people, mostly who are educated about the scriptures, believe that there will come a time that the world will be cleansed and End Times will come.
According to Christianity Daily, a recent study says that many Christians in the United States believe the world is entering the last days. The study focused on Americans' attitudes toward the environment, environmentalism, and climate change.
In addition, some Christians think that Jesus Christ will come back in accordance with the Bible at the end of time. Furthermore, the earth will be worse before the "second coming."
According to the Pew Research Center, nearly two in five Americans, including Black Protestants, evangelicals, mainline Protestants, Roman Catholics, and others, believe that we are in the "end times."
The study also showed that only some people who believe in the end times hold a particular religious belief about how it would occur. The article claims that there are disagreements within the Christian community over the timing of the end times. Some people think it happened in the first century, while others think it hasn't happened yet.
