So, the rapture didn’t happen on Saturday evening and the world did not begin falling apart. Harold Camping’s was a prediction that many laughed at and made others uncomfortable. All things considered, I’m a bit surprised at how much air time this got. I suspect that is so because in the end it helped to mock a man and his Christianity (especially the latter).

Where was the deriding laughter when Paul Ehrlich’s “starving billions” predictions didn’t come true? What about Al Gore? Global warming predictions typically fall short of their prophesied doom and yet they are shrouded in respectability for some reason.

Well, one advantage the global warming alarmists have over their theological counterparts is that they can keep moving the date with impunity while covering the failure of their first prediction in a fog of scientific jargon.

I submit that neither the predictions of the Christian theologian or the global warming acolyte will meet with any success:

Mark 13:32 ESV

“But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Being prepared for the end should not involve selling our worldly possessions or changing our carbon shoes to make a smaller “footprint”. It should involve having good relationships with the ones you love and making new ones with people you haven’t met.
