OK, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, for some, but the world will be coming to an end on May 21, 2011. Yes, in a little over 100 days the world, as we know it, shall come to an end and Jesus will be returning. (I’m being sarcastic.) How do I know this to be true? (even though the Bible CLEARLY says that nobody knows the day and time.) Well, on my way to work yesterday, on Rt. 66, I ran into a CARAVAN of RV’s that were proclaiming the end of the world! As many of you know I live right outside of Washington DC, and yesterday was the national prayer breakfast. So I imagine that these vans were on their way downtown to make “an appearance”. (I don’t think they were invited.)
In case you can’t read the Van it says; “Have you heard the awesome news? The end of the world is almost here!” and “The Bible Guarantees it!” it also has the year 2012 crossed out with a red line. Well, I have a lot of problems with a “ministry” (I am using that term really really loosely here) like this one. Not only for the gross misinterpretation of scripture, but it also gives Jesus followers around the world an even more narrow minded reputation than we already have. And, on on May 22nd, when we are all still here, what then? Sorry? My bad? You can read more about these people and their “ministry” at familyradio.com
So, I’m gonna start a little countdown here on the TOB blog and then on May 22nd, 2011 I am going to try to make contact with this ministry to see what they say. Stay tuned!
