Yes !!! But my only "fear" is about facts like:

1) In the beginind of XX century, some priests and protestant leaders made
people believe that world would finish...and believers...: really
believed... Will they repeat it in XXI ?? Or are they already doing it ?...

2) Recently, even this pope, Carol Wojtila, apparently menthally
equilibrated, said that a certain bishop of a protestant religion was the
beast itself ... Bishop Macedo of the Universal Church of The Kingdom of God
was turning the minds of lots of catholics to his church... That was an
irresponsible affirmation since the beast would just come when supposed (
and taugh...) end would be near...
