Are You Ready for Judgement Day?

You have probably heard that a radio preacher named Harold Camping is  predicting that the end of the world is tomorrow. At least for the saved amongst us. Those who are not saved will live another five months on earth being tortured.  But don’t worry he has predicted the end of the world before. He once was certain that the end would come on September 1994!

Over at the Catholic Lane, Jeffery has a post up on the subject:

This “predicting of the end of the world” and interpreting Scriptures in a very clever way to support some prediction of the date of the return of Jesus is all too familiar to me.  I was raised in another apocalyptic cult known today as the Jehovah’s Witnesses.  This group promotes a similar “cleverly invented story” which continues to deceive millions of people and has destroyed the faith of countless others.

Russell and Camping: The Great Decoders of the Bible

One characteristic that is common among individuals who like to make predictions regarding the end of the world or the return of Christ is that these individuals believe that there is some secret knowledge contained in Holy Scripture that only they can decode for the world. Read more here.

Catholic Answers has a good article explaining the various end time scenarios here.
