May 21st is the end of the world! (Or is that the day I’m going to the Symphony?)

You may have heard the hubbub already… Harold Camping, a Christian radio-broadcaster, is declaring that the Bible says the end of the world is going to happen on May 21st, 2011.  In his own words…

God has given so much information in the Bible about this, and so many proofs, and so many signs, that we know it is absolutely going to happen without any question at all.

Wow.  Really?

If you want to read a good article about this… and the many, many other times various “Christians” have made these kinds of predictions, you can find one at Al Mohler’s site HERE.

What do I think of the prediction?  Two simple things…

  1. What part of  “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only,” does Harold Camping NOT understand? (Matthew 24;36)
  2. I’m so worried about Harold’s prediction that I’ve purchased tickets to go to the symphony with my wife as part of our weekend anniversary celebration (22 years)… see….?

  1. I’ve had passing interest in this – I always wonder how “Christians:” can get so wrapped up in things that are contrary to the word of God. We’re all susceptible to sin, huh?

    • Yep… there but for the grace of God go I! What is truly amazing to me is that this type of thing has been done countless times before… and people STILL feel free to do it again!
