The end of the world

Many, during the course of history, have given various dates on when the world will come to an end. This year the most famous person preaching about the coming apocalypse has been pastor Harold Camping, who believed that the world would come to an end on the 21 May 2011. However we are still here. The 89 year old man was astonished to see that his calculations were wrong. Putting down some facts he has given the world a new date, the 21 October 2011.


Speaking on a radio station he explains: " I have to tell you, when Saturday came and nothing happened it was really difficult for me. Truly I tried to see what had happened. I was sure that on the 21 of May God would come to Earth as an earthquake, which would shake mankind for the last 5 months, but God seems to have arrived only spiritually". His conclusion was that God did not want to bring a plague on to mankind for the last 5 months and that God wishes to destroy us straight away on the 21 October. 
This is merely another example of stupidity, when it comes down to giving a certain day for the apocalypse. As stated in the Bible by Jesus Christ we do not know when this event will take place. Only God the Father is aware of the date. Maybe Harold Camping and every Harold Camping has to go back to the Bible and  read the parable of the ten virgins in order to understand the true meaning and belief of the Second Coming according to the Church's teachings.

  1. Εχουν γεμίσει με παρόμοιες αναρτήσεις τα βαγόνια του υπόγειου σιδηρόδρομου στη Νέα Υόρκη.

    Ούτε να ενδιαφερθεί να καγχάσει δεν πρόσεξα κανένα.

    Τα προσπερνούν όλοι αδιάφοροι.

  2. Μα και στην ελληνική τηλεόραση θυμάμαι πριν από 2-3 χρόνια έβγαινε ένας ιερέας και έλεγε τα ίδια...και εκεί δεν τον έπαιρνε κανείς στα σοβαρά!
