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.
