The End is Near (Again)

May 18, 2011

If you are able to read this again on Sunday, either he was wrong or you were.  In case you haven’t heard the Rapture is supposed to happen this Saturday at 6:00 p.m., Eastern time I presume.  I have seen the billboards myself, once in Accra Ghana and then last week in Dartmouth so I figured it must be true.  Apparently, Harold Camping, 89, founder of Family Radio, a Christian radio network in California, has decided that the end is near, and maybe it is.
Camping obviously believes it and he has convinced others of the validity of his theories.  His group has paid big bucks to have billboards with the news placed throughout the US, Canada and around the world.
Regardless of whether you view Camping as a prophet or a kook, you have to admire his commitment to what he believes.  He has set himself up to be ridiculed and mocked and has spent an estimated 3 million dollars in the process; and why?  Obviously it isn’t to make money and win popularity.  I would suspect that right or wrong, it is because he believes that it is important that people get right with God before it’s too late.  And that wouldn’t be a bad thing for the rest of us to believe. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
