NEW YORK, NY - MAY 13:  Julie Baker walks the ...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
I am writing this on a Sunday, 22 May of 2011. If you are reading this on a Monday the 23rd May, or even after 6 p.m. of this Sunday, then depending on which camp you are in, you are either thoroughly disappointed, greatly relieved or utterly hilarious that the day turned out as you are experiencing now.

That's because one Harold Camping, one of the founder of Family Radio - a nonprofit, noncommercial, listener supported Bible Radio Ministry - has mentioned, rather confidently that the world will see its demise on the 21st May 2011 at 6.00 p.m., New York time. Massive earthquakes would begin in the mid-Pacific and will be wending their way around the globe all day long. New Yorkers can expect seismic horror at approximately 6 p.m. It's the Rapture!

Hmmm, where have we heard all this before?...

Camping and many others before him and many more after this will always fascinate the world with their doomsday prophecies which will always come to nothing. They and many others always can't seem to get it round their heads that no one human can predict and even prophesy exactly when the world is to end. It is only under the purview of God and God alone. It is an event that the Son Himself doesn't have the privilege to possess (cf. Matt 24: 36).

So, here I am now, happily tap, tapping away on my computer keyboard and wondering when's lunch...
