I guess I must.
I guess I must post something about this prediction of the end, of the Rapture of the church. We know that the Bible says nobody knows the day or the hour except the Father so we can’t accept this guy’s word that it will happen tomorrow. That’s not to say it couldn’t happen tomorrow though. There’s still stuff going on in the Middle East that could lead to fulfillment of some version of prophecy.
We worry about what these occasional predictions do for the cause of Christ. We think it makes Christians and Christianity in general look foolish. Strangely enough it could actually serve to reach some people. I know people laugh about it but sometimes it’s a nervous laugh. It could make some people think.
The other down side of these predictions is that people live looking for a day instead of living each day as if it was the last. After all it could happen…
