May 21st, 2011: Doomsday?
Family Radio Worldwide Worldwide and their leader Harold Camping, it may be this year! According to their website, the Rapture (an event spoke of in the Bible in which God calls his believers to heaven) will occur on May 21st 2011. Those that are left behind will then go through a period of torment (tribulation) which will climax in October when the world will then come to an end. This group is all over the media. They are on radio shows, decaling their vehicles and even advertising on huge billboards! These folks are serious. As you will learn, I am not here to persuade in either direction, only to present evidence. I personally DO NOT believe in there teaching. I cannot put put much stock in any teaching that provides a specific date for the end because this contradicts with biblical teaching, which in my mind trumps all else. The reality of this story is that there is a growing sentiment that the world is about to go through some kind of major event or change that will effect us all. Them "when" part, I am afraid we will not figure out intil it is too late.
