APOCALYPSE: Check scripture for the real deal

It is now 10 days since Harold Camping predicted the end of the world would be on May 21, 2011 at 6 p.m. Since this did not happen, he now says it will end in October.

Here’s the truth: When the earth does end, it will not be because of global warming, or as a result of a devastating nuclear war, or because of a giant earthquake, or because of rising seas, or due to drought, or chill, or pestilence, or disease, or famine or at the predictions of people like Camping.

Heaven and earth will remain in place, sustained by Christ until He comes back, and then, according to scripture, the earth and the planets and stars above will melt with fervent heat and with a roar, disappear. This is described in 2 Peter 3: 3-12 of the Christian scriptures.

Now, if you are inclined to not believe the Christian scriptures, keep on being disappointed by the failed claims of the false teachers, such as Mr. Camping.

    Wow. This is a perfect example of a useless editorial. Good Grief.

    how about the Mayan prophecies that are older than the new testament.
    things are supposed to change next year on December 21, 2012

    Drink some more of his blood on Sunday but remember that since the dawn of Man someone has been claiming woe and destruction for not following “The True God” in all societies and small tribes of the world.

    I acknowledge your need to find solace in someone other than yourself controlling your life and am sure you find comfort in that but you do not speak for the entire world, but only the indoctrination you were taught since birth to believe.

    Your belief makes you a whole person but not everyone believes the same thing so get over it.

  4. Publico says:

    How about if I say that some of the Christian scriptures and Mr. Campings false claims are nearly the same thing? You did not give us that chance Constance.

    How about all religion is nothing but belief, mythology and conjecture and should be taken accordingly?

  6. Constance says: “Now, if you are inclined to not believe the Christian scriptures, keep on being disappointed by the failed claims of the false teachers, such as Mr. Camping.”

    Mr. Camping is very much inclined to believe the Christian scriptures and has spent most of his life studying them. His intense study of the scriptures has revealed to him that the Rapture will be revealed in the final days to strong believers, in part because of his interpretation of Daniel 12:9–13.

    Either way, either Constance or Camping, each of which may be equally devout in their belief in scripture, is misinterpreting what their Savior evidently failed to make clear, and each of them is sure, it’s the other. Woe be to the other.
