No, it’s not egotism. We’re watching the signs of the times and reading prophecy which SEEMS to indicate to us that the end times are here or near.
Perhaps egotism isn't the right word. I guess temporocentrism is more accurate. It just seems anyone interested in this topic always sees the end approaching rapidly.
It's like reincarnation buffs. They always seem to say they'd been born previously as Joan of Arc or Napolean. Never a postal clerk. I think seeing the end as near is simply more interesting.
