Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Today's Reading: Amos 1-3 and Revelation 6

The four horsemen of the apocalypse rear their ugly heads all over popular culture. Not too long ago I was talking with a guy who could name all 4 horsemen because of the video game Darksiders:

And the non-Christian band Muse involves the horsemen in their big hit from 2006, 'Knights of Cydonia.' I should warn you, it's a catchy song, and the video is a bit strange.

But of course usually these references distort the message we find in Revelation. Which isn't a surprise -- the end of the world, divine judgment, and horsemen of death, how could those not be appropriated for all sorts of action stories?

Today we're also starting the book of Amos (the Bibledex Overview can be seen by clicking here)
