    I'm curious, how many of you out there believe that on May 21, 2011- your god is coming to earth to carry you up to heaven?
    What makes you Christians believe in this BS?

    "On this day, Camping predicts, the earth will shake, tombs will open, the dead will arise, and, along with a faithful remnant of Christians everywhere, the true believers will ascend to the heavens to meet Jesus. Camping estimates that only 2 percent of the earth's population will be "raptured," or rise to meet Jesus in the clouds, while the rest of creation will endure five months of torment before the curtain falls on the human and planetary adventures."-Bruce Epperly wrote on 5/11.

      No one can know the exact month, day, and year Jesus will return. It is written in the bible that we don't know the exact time. I don't listen to what people say if their words are not in line with the word of God.

            Case closed. Harold Camping says so. So there.

        I'm with you. As to Mr. Camping, he's a reformed pastor who has become an embarrassment to reformed churches, since much of what he teaches now is not Biblical. Please don't paint all Christians as people who believe as he does. No church is perfect, but when people disdain the correction of their denomination and go off to be lone rangers,  is easier for them to slip into errors and lead others in the wrong direction. Reformed denominations have, for the most part, said goodbye to Harold Camping with sadness, since he has stepped away from their fellowship and taken others with him. It will be interesting to see what he says on May 22.

        With the state of the world as it is, we could well be in the last days, and I suppose Christ could return on any day -- even May 21. But I'm not expecting it will be that day, and Jesus said even He Himself did not know the date so it's hard to believe CAmping got a special revelation of it.

          What you are essentially saying is that you don't believe Camping got that information from your god, which basically says you only believe in those who get such revelations from god because that is what you want to believe.

          Maybe Camping did get a revelation from god and is warning everyone. How do you know he didn't? smile

            WannaB Writerposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            I don't. But it appears, according to the apostle Paul (I Corinthians 1:26-33, that prophets are instructed to give their prophetic utterances in the context of a church assembly where there are other prophets present. When one prophet is speaking, the others are to keep silent and weigh what is said until it is their turn, so that all don't try to speak at once, leading to confusion. Verse 32 says that "...the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets."

            I could well be mistaken, but it's my understanding that Mr. Camping has given up on the church -- all denominations-- and encouraged his followers to leave them for their own family house churches. He speaks to his followers mostly on the radio and says the churches are all wrong and he's got it right. He has basically left the oversight of any other "prophet" who would scrutinize his utterances because he has written them all off and feels he can ignore them.

            I have heard Mr. Camping speak on the radio once. I had heard plenty about him before that, since some in my church had been led away by him. His station, Family Radio, has some wonderful Christian music that my church hardly ever sings anymore, and I miss it. But when I heard the things Harold Camping was teaching, things that did not even pertain to the last days, it was obvious he was leaving what the Bible teaches. If he is indeed speaking the real revelation of God, it will come true. If we are all still here, including Camping, on May 22, it will be evident God did not reveal what he claims. I suggest we all continue to  walk with God and go about doing what he's called us to do. Then, whenever he comes, we will be prepared to meet him.

            In Thessalonians, Paul says that though the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night when people seem to be enjoying peace and security, those who are following Jesus will not be caught off-guard because they will be living in obedience and walking with God, and will be happy to see Him come. In essence, we really don't need to know the day Christ is coming back, since we will not have to do anything special to get ready that we have not already done or are not already doing. Neither the church nor the world can expect that they can be like a disorderly class when the teacher has left the room and then start behaving again when they hear him coming back down the hall to return. We must desire to obey him all the time, and have repentant hearts when we have fallen into sin, turn our backs on that sin, receive his forgiveness, and continue to follow him. This is a daily thing -- not like cramming because you think finals are coming.

              So what? The fact that he doesn't follow some "prophet protocol" does not diminish his claims of divine knowledge. Who is say someone is or isn't a prophet? You? Me? Fred Flintstone?



              Exactly, it's either going to happen or it isn't, just like every other empty claim of apocalypse throughout history, including the Christ version. Never happens.



              Yes, but those are just your personal beliefs and aren't really relevant or valid in reality, much like the claims of raptures and apocalypse. smile

                Yes, those are my personal beliefs, and they are just as valid as your personal beliefs. Mine are founded in faith, and yours in lack of such faith. One is reality and one isn't . One day one of us will be discovered to be wrong, since two opposite beliefs cannot both be true. Or maybe both of us will turn out to be wrong and neither of us knows the ultimate truth or reality. Until that ultimate truth is revealed to all, or at the time of our deaths, each of us will cling to what we believe.

                  Yes, faith based beliefs often have nothing to do with reality.



                  Sorry, but that's what science is all about, understanding reality, which it is very successful in achieving. Your beliefs are most likely wrong, but you are free to show how they are right compared with every other religion on the planet, which is something you would need to show true before even attempting to compare your beliefs with reality.

      Very few Christians are actually buying into this. Most Christians follow Jesus' advice about how "No man knows the day or the hour". Not sure what drives people to believe end of the world stuff all I know is Camping and his ilk haven't done nearly as much damage as 2012 proponents.

        What damage have the 2012 proponents done?  Most are just using it for an excuse to have an end of the world party!  Wrote a hub 'bout it!  Like to hear it?  Here it goes...!

        No really, I was very surprised this hub I wrote for fun seemed to get so much interest in having a final bash to end all bashes!

        Another cool thing is, it falls a few days before Christmas so no use in wasting all that cash on presents when everyone will be-how shall I put it-indisposed?  We can take all that money intended for gifts and spend it on party favors, food, entertainment, costumes, and of course, intoxicants. 

        Max that credit card out too!  You get the idea!  Might as well enjoy seeing how the whole history thing turns out after so long.

        But of course, the Mayans could have been mistaken after all.  In that case, better see what Camping says this May 22 and follow his lead.  I'm sure he has a plan B!  lol

        Not so sure about that!  A decent sized asteroid could do it in a matter of seconds.  But then, I doubt Jesus discussed scientific facts very often with his followers.  How boring his life must have been not being able to discuss the real cause of then unexplained phenomena with his friends and followers.

    Actually, with respect to the Christians, I would like to see some textual validity for this, seriously. I once believed it, but after studying the text for years, found nothing to support it.

    a. A Rapture.
    b. Immanu El [Y`shua; Jesus] stating he was returning.
    c. An entity Lucifer mentioned anywhere in Hebrew or Greek text.
    d. A battle between a collective 1/3 of 'fallen angels' that humanity is somehow responsible to participate in.

    Could anyone provide exact information, not just 'supposedly' information for me to read and study.

    Thank you,

      twenty one days! here are your answers to look up and read..The primary passage describing the rapture is 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, in which Paul cites "the word of the Lord" about the return of Jesus to gather his saints.


      And swear by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
      Can be found in Matthew 16:28, 23:36, 24:34.. Luke 9:27, Mark 9:1, 13;30, Luke 21:32.Proverbs 16:1: "The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord." Hosea 10:12: "Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you." Any spiritual truth that falls on bad ground doesn't bear fruit. Matthew 13:8: "But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold." Verse 9: "Who hath ears to hear, let him hear." We are told plainly in those different parables that He went out and sowed seed, and the seed was good; there was nothing wrong with the seed or the sowing of the seed. The trouble was that He sowed it on four kinds of ground, and only one ground was prepared.  So the seed fell on some ground and the fellow was converted. You remember how old Bill got gloriously converted, and he shouted, and he went down on the streets and told how God had saved him. And two weeks later he folded up his tent, taken down the flag, and took off! You see, the Scriptures say there was no root there. He flourished for a little while, but because the seed didn't take root, the first time a little wind storm of adversity came, he played out. Matthew 13:5-6: "Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away."


      I as well gave you a link to follow..I pray that your eyes and heart will be opened!

        Hi Jo!

        Yes, I am familiar with 1 Thessalonians as well as Romans.
        But, that wasn't my question.
        The question was: where did Immanu El [Y`shua; Jesus] or the other 12 state, after the resurrection, he was returning?

        In addition, there is no mention in Johns letter of such an event, nor another great tribulation, nor a battle between humans and angels. In fact, Johns letter of revealing is something entirely different the most perceive.

        As for Rapture, it is not mentioned anywhere. The terms 'lifted up', 'caught up', 'in the clouds' all mean the same thing: glorified. It doesn't mean physically floating off into the sky, but physically, mentally and spiritual being reunified --as Adam was. Some use Johns letter as a back up for this passage. But, looking at that passage in the letter is expressly says this:

        "And this is the FIRST resurrection; blessed are they who share in the first resurrection, the 2nd death (that is of spirit) has no authority over them."

        So, one must ask this: when was the first resurrection?
        And also, was there a resurrection after the first; is there ever a mention of a second resurrection?

        Now, immediately following this, John says something very important --and quite awesome actually: (in order of appearance)

        ha-satan was released and then no more.
        Gog and Magog also no more.
        All are judged.
        Death and Hades are no more.

        Look! [God’s] dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them ( Immanu El --Creator In Us; Kingdom In Us).

        These events occurred at the first Resurrection. The new Jerusalem has come and dwells in each one who walks by faith (will explain this later on).


        As for no more time, that is a different topic, which I have written a lot about...

      He said that if no one is "raptured" than it just means he came, and went because no one was worthy. 

      So he has already worked that angle to his advantage.  But what really pisses me off about this dude, is that he is so "politically incorrect" in his speaking of the Jews. 

      He said, since he didn't speak Jew that he had to rely on Google translate, and now that Google translate can speak Jew - he got his dates right this time.  He has made predictions before about JC's coming to America.  They came and went, just because he couldn't read "Jew."

      What ignorant namesay speaks like this nowadays? You know, he only makes us all look stupid.

      How did this guy become a preacher in the first place? And what the hell makes Christians follow him?  That's what I want to know.

    We have been given information to watch for signs so we are indeed prepared and ready. I do not believe God has shared the day or year with anyone on earth.

    Beelzedad (and all unbelievers), every single soul is going to live forever either in Hell or with Christ. And everyone will be forced to acknowledge Him as King and Lord if he/she doesn't do so out of truth. All He wants is for us to believe in Him, love Him and allow Him to love us. Isn't love a wonderful thing to look toward? Please just read the book of John with an open mind. I long to see you and all my other brothers and sisters in the next life, living free and in full worship. Just try it, not for religion. Religion is not Jesus, love is totally different.
    I am not going to argue back and forth. I just wanted to offer you this opportunity to see Jesus as He really is and not as many have portrayed Him.

      I would never want to worship or have anything to do with a god who will "force" me to acknowledge him, especially if it is to love him and believe in him. Only a psychopathic despot behaves and makes demands like that.

      If the only other choose is hell, so be it.



      Thanks for confirming what we pretty much already knew about your god.

      Funny how Satan does not make the same demands or threats as your god. smile

    There is no proof Jesus ever existed (his real name wasn't Jesus anyway) and even less evidence he was anything but a mortal man if he did indeed exist.

    I doubt seriously he would want to come back anyway.  smile

      This place is huge. Maybe we will get some decent soil from it.
      Central Australia runs about 1 snake to the acre at the moment. smile

    I hope not, because I will not be ready.  The bible did say the end of the world will come like a thief in the night.

    I respect your thoughts. I believe the way I do, because of the real miracles I have received in my life when I follow "my truth". If you were to see the pain and heartbreak in my life, as well as the miracles that came from it. You may then have the ability to open your heart and mind to the possiblty of something that is really wonderful! I would rather be wrong and not lose my soul, than follow another's truth and lose my soul.

      How do you know YOUR truth is any more factual than others?  What if you are encouraging others to worship the wrong god?  Will you be accountable for them losing their souls if you are wrong?  I certainly hope so, as you would deserve great torment for convincing them to follow your own delusions. Or do you disagree?

        Yes! I will be accountable for my decisions, my choices. There is no way around that one. The God I worship is the right one. He is the way, the truth, and the Life! If I am delusional, than I am one heck of a happy person in being delusioned. Now, may I ask you? What has turned your heart so cold? My heart is really sad for you. I will keep you in prayer. That you may find peace, love, and forgiveness. You are wonderful and specail! You are a talented writer. So please don't be angry with me, for what I believe, ok? Maybe we can agree to disagree? I am not here to upset you. I am trying to grow as a writer, encourage others. And learn from everyone! Be safe, and Blessings in your life! :-)

    No one can predict a day, or an hour for Judgment day, because even Jesus, the angels in heaven but only the father knows the day and the hour for the great tribulation to start.  Judgment day is not a literal 24-hour day, but a period of time.  Judgment day takes place when the tribulation is cut short.  We don’t know that date either, that’s why Jesus urged us to keep on the watch, because it will come at a time that you do not expect.

    See you on the 22nd

    Just like there are false messages in the world there are false messages in Christianity. False messages are the greatest tool for toppling pride.

    Just as a word for those who read my post containing the weak and sickly among Christiandom. This scenario clarifies what i meant. The weak and sickly will flock to this kind of message because they are not strong (grounded in the word and person of Jesus Christ).

    I had a really hard day today at work.  Our surgical case load was difficult to say the least.  So, here I am, draggin' hind-tit, and my Atheist husband says to me, "Honey, just look at the bright side, you'll be flyin' high on Sat."

    I was like, hardy, hard, har....  butthead. wink
