‘A lot of people might think, ‘The end’s coming, let’s go party.’ But we’re commanded by God to warn people’
Sure, that sounds sort of okay… But then this:
RALEIGH, N.C. — If there had been time, Marie Exley would have liked to start a family. Instead, the 32-year-old Army veteran has less than six months left, which she’ll spend spreading a stark warning: Judgment Day is almost here.
Exley is part of a movement of Christians loosely organized by radio broadcasts and websites, independent of churches and convinced by their reading of the Bible that the end of the world will begin on May 21, 2011.
To get the word out, they’re using billboards and bus stop benches, traveling caravans of RVs and volunteers passing out pamphlets on street corners…
There is more here.
You cannot fix God to a date! He does (and will do) as He sees fit according to His good pleasure. All these poor deluded people need to do is to rightly interpret the Scriptures:
But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone (Matt 24:21).
Faithfulness and watchfulness, that is what is required.
Sadly though, these individuals are doing more harm than they are good.
