Instead of a celebration of a separation from Rome, many celebrated the 500 anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 theses as an ecumenical time to come together. Vatican, Eastern Orthodox, and and Protestant leaders made positive comments about the 500th anniversary. When does the Bible teach Christian unity is to come about?

Are super volcanoes, such as Yellowstone in the USA or various ones in New Zealand a real threat? If so, what type of threat? Are super volcano issues consistent with biblical prophecies?
