Thats like the mormons

Jesus was supposed to come back about 1890

Joey Smith said so in 1835...

“President Smith then stated ... it was the will of God that those who went to Zion, with a determination to lay down their lives, if necessary, should be ordained to the ministry, and go forth to prune the vineyard for the last time, or the coming of the Lord, which was nigh—even fifty-six years should wind up the scene.”

(History of the (Mormon) Church, volume 2, page 182)

And the Russellites, after a number of false calls, claimed their last one was correct and that Jesus did return, but did so "spiritually" and that's why no one saw it.

Didn’t the Jehova Witnesses also predict earlier end-dates and then keep setting them later?

Don’t forget the William Miller, Martin Luther, Hong Xiuquan (Taiping rebellion).

The hallmark of heretics. It almost commands some respect to Jean Calvin for NOT claiming a date of the end of the world.

Jesus himself said he was coming back within the lifetime of some of his followers.

Matt 16:28 “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”

oops...didnt happen.
