-Judgment Day on May 21? I Don’t Think So

by Dr. D ~ May 2nd, 2011

The end of the world!

There are nearly 2,000 billboards around the world warning folks that the world is going to end as we know it on May 21. Some of the warnings are painted on cars, vans, and RV’s like the one shown here.

This current prediction of doom and rapture is the latest product of Harold Camping, a Christian broadcaster who operates Family Radio.

Most people ignore the signs but some are serious followers of Camping and are setting their ‘life in order’ for the occasion. Reportedly some have sold their homes, others quit their jobs, and several students have stopped going to school. They have all been caught up in a serious miscalculation that will probably bring permanent damage to their faith and their lives.

This is the same Harold Camping who was wrong when he made a similar prediction in 1994 in a book called ‘1994’. He was wrong then, later he chose 2000 as the year and he was wrong once more. He will be this time also. The one thing I can say with some certainty is that we will all be here on May 22 and those who believed In his calculations will all be devastated.

Remember what Jesus said about the end of the world:

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. –Matt. 24:36

Jesus says here that he doesn’t know but Camping arrogantly thinks he does? I don’t think so.

Here’s a link to a fine article by Hector Avalos , a professor of religious studies at Iowa State University, who writes specifically about the problems with Camping’s calculations: “No Judgment Day on May 21

See you all on May 22, blessings.            *Top
