And I didn’t get the memo.
At work yesterday, several of my coworkers asked me if I was aware of the coming apocalypse. I obviously was not. However, one guy thinks that he has the date all pinned down.
The 2011 end times prediction is a prediction made by Christian radio host Harold Camping that theRapture (in Christian belief, the taking up into heaven of God’s elect people) will take place on May 21,2011 and that the end of the world as we know it will take place five months later on October 21,2011. These predictions were made by Camping, president of the Family Radio Christian network, who claims the Bible as his source and says May 21 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment “beyond the shadow of a doubt”. His followers claim that around 200 million people (approximately 3% of the world’s population) will be raptured.
Alrighty then…here are two verses for you:
16(A)All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
Are you ready for the reproof Mr. Camping? Here it comes!
36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
So sir, are you claiming to know something that Jesus himself said that only God knows?
In other words, everyone will be here to read the Sunday Link Post.
