Friday Bloggin’………. It’s the End of the World…. again!

21 Oct

I’m sure a lot of us never thought twice about today’s significance. Today is actually a very special day. Remember our friend Harold Camping? Well, if you don’t, he was the guy that spent a reported $100,000,000.00 on an advertising and caravan campaign to spread the news about the Rapture.

I love these guys! They always start out with Scripture like, “we know the Bible says , ‘No man knoweth the hour’……but…..” Wait a minute. God’s Word is purely preserved for eternity right? Wait a minute, doesn’t Jesus Christ Himself warn against those that add to his revelation? Be careful of guys that say things that are far off from Scripture. They have different agenda’s and a different doctrine.

So, back to the end of the world. May 21st came and went, and I can imagine the heart break in all of Camping’s followers. There’s nothing like having your spirit broken, your faith fail, and your resources depleted.

Its really sad when I come across people who once believed in God, went to church, but because of a heartbreak. Maybe God didn’t heal their mom, or maybe God didn’t save their unborn child, or maybe God didn’t keep their parents together. We have legitimate problems and hurts, and there are times when I do question God’s plan, and maybe feel that God’s being unfair to me. I hope that in any situation, my faith in God wouldn’t fail.

Okay, that was so — not what I was going to talk about, so let’s get back to the end of the world. I hate most about this is how Harold has made all of us Christians look CRAZY! We’re not CRAZY! We’re normal functioning human beings that are part of this society, that add to its goodness. Yes we do believe in the rapture. Yes we do believe in the 2nd Coming of Christ. Yes we do believe that this world is going to end. This is our faith. This is our hope. This is our longing. But we’re not weird. We just have faith.
