Doomsday campers travel the country preaching the Apocalypse...on May 21
mail online ^

Posted on 03/08/2011 12:30:48 PM PST by Scythian



Most people like to push thoughts about the end of the world to the back of their minds, hoping that the apocalypse, if it ever comes, will be a long way off.

But for one group of not-so happy campers, doomsday is a lot sooner...May 21 to be precise.

According to the predictions of the Family Radio ministry, on that date a massive earthquake will shake the world apart, littering the ground with 'many dead bodies'.



I think this is Harold Camping's group again ...

It'll probably be around March 19 with that extreme super moon, the closest perigee in 18 years.

Yea well, thanks for telling us anyway.

Apparently no one from Family Radio is sure what to do to guarantee a place in heaven.

Usually in the subway tunnel between Port Authority (8th Av) and Times Square (7th Av), these guys were conspicuous by their absence yesterday. (I'm only there every week or two.)

There is not going to be an “End Times” and time in our lifetimes. I know this to be 100% true because I’m just not lucky enough to be through with this pointless bullshit.

We will be tormented by this world full of idiots and scumbags for the rest of our days.

Camping was wrong in 1994 and he’ll be wrong this time. He apparently doesn’t believe the Bible when it says that no one will know the time.

To believe they know the date, is to call Jesus Christ a liar.

But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

It's an embarrassment that people/Christians continue to make hard predictions on dates of the end. It is not scriptural and causes a loss of credibility.

And beside that, it sounds wacky. Just what the lefttards need to help to discount the truth.

Can we declare May 22, 2011 as Deuteronomy 18:20 Day?

Deuteronomy 18:20-22

20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.”

21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” 22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.

They are part of that sector of Christianity that thinks because they went to a “church” where they jumped around, and sang really bad songs, while dressed in gaudy outfits with some huckster preacher, think that they will be Jesus’s BFF.

Muslims are more Christian than those clowns.

My brother-in-law sure is smart. He’s in hock up to his ears, under water on his home and owing half a mil in debts. He must have known about this coming earthquake apocalypse! He just asked me for a loan. I think I’ll promise it to him for June.

Using the same theory that if every person in China stood on a chair, then all jumped off at the same time, it would knock Earth out of orbit and kill us all. All well and good until you realize that the mass of the Earth is about 6 sextillion tons. So even if each Chinese person weight 1 ton, there would still be eight zeroes ahead of them in line, each person having to push the equivalent of a hundred million times their own weight.

In this case, the Earth is covered with tectonic plates, like a broken eggshell with eight major pieces and several more little pieces. If, by “little”, you mean immense hunks of rock miles deep.

They kind of shuffle around, slowly, each at their own pace, and when two of them collide, rock either goes up or goes down, in fits and starts, and you get earthquakes. Mostly concentrated near where plates meet.

But there just isn’t anything to force earthquakes all at once, everywhere, unless a gigantic astral body collides with Earth, and if that happens, earthquakes are the least of our problems.

I listen to Family Radio for the music. The station features traditional Christian hymns and gospel songs, not the boring “praise” music or insipid “contemporary Christian” recordings found on most other Christian stations. However, when Camping comes on and starts talking, I turn to another station.

The Bible prescribes a remedy for false prophets. Do you really want to go there? How many times has that NUT predicted it? I can think of three other times. The problem I have with NUTS like this is that they diminish the word of God. Any one can have an opinion, but this NUT says the Bible guarantees it. This is just as bad as the NUT from Westboro notbaptist church who says God Hates America, and hates fags. Why would God send his Son to die on the cross for those he hates? He didn't, he SO LOVES THE WORLD. The fraud NUT from family radio is the same. I find it funny that he “knows” so much but when someone tries to show him his error he attacks them for diminishing his faith.

I think it would be funny if Jesus called His Bride on say, May 16thn but left Campy and his followers for a few days (if they are even saved).

WTF? (Winning The Future)
What does it mean that the End of the World "Begins" on May 21st (as is printed on their bus)? Do they have an End End date in mind. I.e., is this 'beginning' going to take 6 months, 7 years, 1000 years?
If they mean May 21st is the 'beginning' of an indeterminately long process that will lead to an 'End' ... sure, why not...

Mr. Camping, before he became obsessed with worshiping numbers, used to say something quite correct - which I'll paraphrase: '150,000 people die a day. You could be one of them. If you are, it is the "End Time" for you. Are you ready? Are you resting in Christ's finished work - or are you going on like you have an infinite number of 'tomorrows'?'

We have a life to live - but keep your eyes on eternity and on Christ. Because HE is our Peace and all our Hopes.

>>>They mocked Lot, they mocked Noah and they mocked our Lord and Savior. If there is any mocking to be done I think I would wait until May 22nd...<<<

True, but Noah and Lot were obeying the word that had received directly from God. Camping is directly violating it with his date setting.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” - Matthew 24:36

I believe Christ could return at any time, but based upon the Scriptural warning against date guessing, the one day I am pretty much certain it will NOT happen is May 21, 2011.

I wonder what excuse Camping will come up with when it doesn't happen? Will he claim it actually did, secretly happen, like the JWs or set a new date, like the Millerites (forebearers of the Seventh Day Adventists).

These nutcases passed through my town not long ago. They had a whole caravan of trucks, RVs and goodness only knows what, so I guess there’s money behind this.

It’s a pity they’re so nutty, because I occasionally listen to Family Radio for the music.

But Our Lord did tell us not to worry about the dates and times and I prefer His words to theirs.
