Carson Warns That Apocalypse Could Be Near

Ben Carson, responding to a question in an interview Sunday, conceded that the end of days may be coming soon.

When the Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Sharyl Attkisson asked the Republican presidential contender about the possible impending destruction of the world, he replied: “You could guess that we are getting closer to that. You do have people that have a belief system that sees this apocalyptic phenomenon occurring and that they’re a part of it. (They) would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if they could gain possession of them.”

Carson offered hope that the end of days can be delayed. “I think we have a chance to certainly ameliorate the situation,” he said. “I would always be shooting for peace. I wouldn’t just take a fatalistic view of things.”

The candidate explained that his religious beliefs as a Seventh Day Adventist inspire his White House bid. “I am a Christian. I believe in godly principles; (in) loving your fellow man, caring about your neighbor ... developing your God-given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you,” he said, adding: “I do believe there should be a line drawn” regarding the separation of church and state.

During the interview, Carson cautioned that some of the refugees fleeing Syria and entering the United States could be “jihadists.” He said President Obama’s policy of allowing them into the country does not “make a whole lot of sense,” The Hill reported.
