End of World? – May 21,2011

Last updated on February 18, 2012

Please, join us as we look at Harold Campings prediction of May 21 as Judgment Day. “A loosely organized Christian movement has spread the word around the globe that Jesus Christ will return to earth on Saturday to gather the faithful into heaven. While the Christian mainstream isnt buying it, many other skeptics are milking it. A Facebook page titled “Post rapture looting” offers this invitation: “When everyone is gone and gods not looking, we need to pick up some sweet stereo equipment and maybe some new furniture for the mansion were going to squat in.” By Wednesday afternoon, more than 175,000 people indicated they would be “attending” the “public event.” The prediction originates with Harold Camping, an 89-year-old retired civil engineer from Oakland, Calif., who founded Family Radio Worldwide, an independent ministry that has broadcast his prediction around the world. Camping is not hedging this time: “Beyond the shadow of a doubt, May 21, 2011 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment,” he said in January. Such predictions are nothing new, but Campings latest has been publicized with exceptional vigor – not just by Family Radio but through like-minded groups. Theyve spread the word using radio, satellite TV, daily website updates, billboards, subway ads, RV caravans hitting dozens of cities and missionaries scattered from Latin America to Asia.”
