Wrong again

I'm still here. Either I missed the rapture or Harold Camping got it wrong.

Harold Camping is a religious quack who "discovers" deep mysteries, while missing simple statements of our Lord such as "no man knoweth (or will know) the day or the hour." Some people never learn.

Much of the news media revealed they are journalistic quacks. How many times did you hear yesterday was "the end of the world". A simple click of the mouse would have revealed that wasn't exactly what Camping said. But what did they care; they just found something they could manipulate.

Christians, don't be discouraged. Let us keep looking for that blessed hope and glorious appearing of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. False prophets will get it wrong. Scoffers will increase. But He that shall come WILL come, and will not tarry.

Yes Robert, wrong one more time. Sometimes i wonder if some of these people actually have other motives in mind when they come up with these outlandish predictions. Also, why bother with printing books and other forms of literature explaining the conclusion? What would it benefit anyway if the end was at hand?

Naturally, the rapture and end of the world are two entirely differnt things. And to think the word "rapture" does not appear in the Bible.

What disturbs me is that now there seems to be some outside the circle of theology who are making predictions. You may remember a gentleman in the late 1980's who had a formula that he claimed could not be denied with the rapture taking place in 1988. His name eludes me, but i remember he was a mathematician for NASA. He also had reading material to peddle. You wonder who will be next?
