Will Christianity Survive the End of the World?

A consideration of the 27th chapter of Isaiah and related prophecies.  The question of which shall end first—Christianity or the world—may seem like a strange topic to even consider. No doubt Jehovah's Witnesses naturally assume that true Christianity will without question outlive, not only the present evil world, but especially that brand of counterfeit Christianity [...]
