"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." Matthew 24:36

No man, evidently, but Harold Camping. Over the last couple of weeks, I've had a couple of interfaces with the Harold Camping/Family Radio/End of the world crowd. They've been all over Manhattan. In Penn Station, Times Square, on 42nd Street, and even a car going around blaring trumpets. Nice enough folks, but I'm genuinely troubled that there's going to be a big letdown for some of these people come May 22nd, if Jesus hasn't arrived according to Brother Camping's schedule.

I've been a follower of bible prophecy ever since I was a kid. Growing up in a Southern Baptist congregation, we had frequent revival preachers visit us and give their take on the last days. While some of them had slightly different ideas of how it all would go down....

Don’t let those who are missing the target keep you from recognizing the target.

Let’s see... this is May 14. So, if it happens, it will happen in seven days. I for one, am not going to worry about it. It will happen or it won’t. What I think will make no difference.

If I remember correctly, Jesus said, “ I come as a thief” (a.k.a. he will come as a surprise, and we just don’t have any prior knowledge about it).

If it DOES happen I am going to be so ticked off ... I got a court order from a deadbeat who has to pay me several grand on 5/23 and if he beats the payment one more time, I’m just going to scream!

This will not happen. Harold Camping know more than the heavenly Father?? Come on.
When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

— Deuteronomy 18:22

Jesus does in fact say He will come as a thief — to those he comes to destroy, that is. But the Bible also says He will not come as a thief for the elect. 1 Thessalonians 5:2-6.
