Yet another individual has declared a date in history to be Judgement Day. Doesn’t that make you sick on the inside when you hear about it? Thousands of people are hearing this and associating it with Christianity.
His name is Harold Camping, and he has an entire organization helping him with his endeavor. Family Radio is the organization. Family LIFE Radio is pretty upset about the whole ordeal, as there is bound to be some misunderstandings.
I have searched their website thoroughly for the biblical evidence that they claim to exist. The “gospel truth” as they put it. I was very surprised when they offered none. They don’t even have a single verse that points to a specific date. What evidence do they offer then? I quote:
“Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 is the culmination of five decades of intensive biblical study by Mr. Camping and other bible teachers who have discovered the same biblical data.”
Translation: “Mr. Camping is a smart dude.”
Apparently he has spent enough time in the scriptures that he doesn’t have to tell us what he knows. Because all they are willing to say is “there’s overwhelming evidence” or “Camping couldn’t be wrong” or “He’s right for sure this time“.
In 1994 he predicted the world was going to end and, in case you haven’t noticed, he was wrong that time too.
Enough of human reasoning. I don’t wish to argue about this any more when I could simply drop the bomb. Here is the Doomsday sayers nightmare:
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
Camping claims to know both the day and the hour. Jesus Christ did not even know the time which He was going to be sent back. ONLY the Father. So here we have 3 options:
- Jesus Christ was wrong
- Mr. Camping is wrong
- Mr Camping is god
Options 1 and 3 aren’t really options, I just put them there to make a point.
Will I be ready on May 21, at 6:00pm? Yes I will. And I will be ready at 7:00pm also, and 8:00pm. In fact, I will be ready the 22nd, the 23rd, and the 24th. I will be ready in 2011, 2012, and 2013. My Lord is coming when we least expect it, and no man will know the hour.
