While Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping tries to warn the world that the rapture – where Christians will rise and join Jesus – will happen on May 21, the group American Atheists is calling it “nonsense” and advertising a party for “heathens and skeptics.”
“The Rapture: You KNOW it’s Nonsense. 2000 Years of ‘Any Day Now,'” says the atheist group’s billboard in Oakland, Calif. “Learn the Truth at our Rapture Party, May 21-22.”
I love this message! This is so crazy that I’m sure some christians will say that he is wrong.
Interestingly, atheists aren’t the only ones rejecting the prediction. Christians have argued that predicting the date for the end of the world is unbiblical.
No one can know the day or the hour, they say, citing Scripture.
Good point. Jesus said it would happen within a life time. Whoops!
Matthew 16:28: “…there shall be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.“
So after 2,000 years of any day, I’m sure they will stop with that crap.
A recent Public Religion Research Institute and Religion News Service poll, conducted after Japan was struck by its largest earthquake in recent history, found that 67 percent of evangelicals believe natural disasters are evidence of the end times. Pastors are also getting up in their pulpits, preaching that the end of the world really is near.
Pastor Greg Laurie from Southern California admitted that the “end of the world” message has been preached many times before but recent events such as the massive earthquakes in Japan and New Zealand and the unrest in the Middle East make it evident that the return of Jesus Christ is closer.
I guess some things will never change.
Hey, David Silverman…. here is a billboard idea for ya. On may 22nd put up a sign that says… “We hate to say it but, we told you so….”
Here is a video from CNN!
