Yup, that’s right folks. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere you’ve already probably heard of Harold “the Nut” Camping, and his equally nutty prediction that tomorrow, May 21, 2011, is Judgement Day. He says, nuttily, that his predictions are based on careful reading and calculations of Biblical passages. In other words, it’s in the Bible so it’s true.
I’ve blogged on this topic before, and quoted others (who can articulate their opinions better than I can mine) so there’s no need to add more. Suffice it to say on the morning of May 22 there will be:
- Atheists laughing at the gullibility of the Christians, and becoming more entrenched in their atheism
- Christians who will be disappointed and who will turn away or fall away from the faith.
- Christians who will be vindicated in their denouncement of Camping as a false teacher/prophet.
- Christians who will find their faith strengthened–because God’s word is reliable, despite the twisting of it that some people like Camping love to do.
- Atheists (or people of other religions for that matter) who will read about or hear about true, faithful Biblical exegesis of the end times and finally turn to Christ.
- Not as many Christians who will turn away from the faith.
