Pastor: The World Will End May 21

From The Independent

The end of the world is nigh; 21 May, to be precise. That’s the date when Harold Camping, a preacher from Oakland, California, is confidently predicting the Second Coming of the Lord. At about 6pm, he reckons 2 per cent of the world’s population will be immediately “raptured” to Heaven; the rest of us will get sent straight to the Other Place.

If Mr Camping were speaking from any normal pulpit, it would be easy to dismiss him as just another religious eccentric wrongly calling the apocalypse. But thanks to this elderly man’s ubiquity, on America’s airwaves and billboards, his unlikely Doomsday message is almost impossible to ignore.

    the world will end someday but i do not believe that the day it is going to end can be predicted by any human. Unless that day comes because of a sick individual who decides to create a nuclear world war.. of which even then there will be survivors… i do believe that the world will end because of a god or higher power, but not on a day that can be predicted…. if you have other views or dont agree then please let me know the facts you have to say otherwise…

    Matthew 24:42(NASB)
    36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.

    If you read your Bible it states that even God doesn’t know when Jesus is going too return too the earth. No one knows when the end is going too happen.. That’s just like everyone thinks that it’s going too be 12 12 12.. It’s going too happen when ever..

    I would be more apt to believe that when the Mayan calendar ends, 12/21/12, aliens will land on the pyramids in Mexico. No living creature knows when the end is. How can anyone be so naive to believe that after the earth has been here for BILLIONS of years, that we would be the few generations to be alive when the whole thing would come to an end? This guy and everyone like him are false prophets. Does anyone remember Heaven’s Gate? I think god was in the tail of the Hale-Bopp comet! Come on people. Wake up!
