Interesting article of how family members cope with each other over differing beliefs regarding the coming (or not) Rapture.

I’ve seen this before. They will just make excuses, change the date, and do it all over again.

Remember when Ted Danson gave the world ten years to total environmental destruction? How many years ago was that?

****And parents who believe the earth will begin to self-destruct on Saturday.***

Some people believed the same thing in 1988.

Back in the early 1980s, at a family reunion in southern Arkansas, an old woman in the family claimed to have a vision that the family needed to stay together till the “Rapture”. They did.

They lost homes to forclosure, lost jobs, and basicly completely turned their lives upside down.

Finally the old woman died, and the families drifted apart realizing they had been “had”.

I’ve woke up on a few Sundays where I wished the world would end. Mostly in college.

Like a true cult, Camping effectively exalts himself as the supreme interpreter of Scripture to the exclusion of those who dissent from him, and even teaches the lost are those who deny that believers will know the hour of Christ’s coming. Yet prior to that he said that he makes plans for future business on earth (as does his ministry now: http://money.cnn.com/2011/05/19/news/economy/may-21-end-of-the-world-finances-harold-camping), even while teaching he expects 2011 to be the end. (Time
has an end, p.22)

Countdown clock an refutation here: http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/Camping.html

Anyone know how to make the countdown clock script work here?

“Gary Daniels, 27, said he planned to spend Saturday like other believers, “glued to our TV sets, waiting for the Resurrection and earthquake from nation to nation.””

Flat screen?

How large?

And what is Gary’s address?

I've seen the mother-daughter drama play out lots of times, but that mom is going to have a really interesting situation come Sunday.

If you've told your daughter the world is ending Saturday and she's going to hell, do you go to church on Sunday?

Sure would have some 'splainin' to do to the Lord.

Judgement Day and the so-called “Rapture” are two totally different events separated by a thousand years.................

“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. —Matthew 24:36-44

Due to the shortage of trained trumpeters the end of the world has been postponed 90 days.

It is already Saturday May 21st in New Zealand and Kiritimati (Christmas Island) where it is suppposed to start.

I wonder if there has been an increase in the missing persons reported or unidentified flying objects reported to the police.

Any earthquakes or volcanic eruptions being reported?
