One Take on the End of the World

Someone says he believes in the Bible and it sparks nationwide protests: such is America in 2012. And speaking of 2012...

Last year, Harold Camping pegged the end of the world: twice. It comes as no surprise that he was incorrect. The  ancient Mayan Calendar says that we're due for the lights to go out on December 21 of this year.

The Bible contains quite a few vereses related to Jesus' second coming and the end of the world. Just two days before he was betrayed and arrested, he spoke on this topic. It is referred to as the Olivet Discourse (because he was on the Mount of Olives at the time).

Wrong Judgement Day.
Man, HHH is built

An awful lot of Christians don't study (heck, or even read) their Bibles. It's from that group that you will find the people who guess what day the world will end. Harold Camping and Jehovas Witnesse are among the many who thought they figured it out. Regarding Christians, it's especially disappointing, as Jesus SPECIFICALLY tells us we cannot know the day or hour. Yet Christians keep guessing.

What Jesus tells us is that we are to live our lives in a way that we will be prepared for the day and hour. That's the point.

The link below goes to a commentary I wrote on the Olivet Discourse. I'm going with Jesus' words on the subject. I'll use my calendar for pictures of Kate Buckeyes.
