    Nope. I don’t believe in any of the “end of the world” stuff, whether it be this, 2012, or rapture.

    No, I don’t believe any of it. There is always people who believe the world will end during their life time. I think it’s because those people don’t want to realize that they’re going to die, just like everyone else.

    Absolutely not! It’s rather entertaining to read about though.

    People were giving out brochures about this at a college basketball game a couple of months ago! I laughed because I was very confused about why they would be waiting so long to tell everyone just 2 months before it was supposed to happen.

    But to answer your question…I absolutely do not believe it. Like you said- no man will know when it is going to happen!

    If you do in depth study of Revelations, Daniel, and other places through out the Bible you can know that things are lining up for the end times.. like you mentioned though, I believe the Coming of Christ to be something that noone will know when is as also stated in scripture… and that there will be a Rapture at the onset of the Tribulation and another mid-way through.

    I never go for the “it’s the end of the world” things, but do know that it is coming and that taking it seriously is an important part of being a Christian.

    Oh. I’ve seen bumper stickers and bill boards and such but I thought they were a joke… I guess it’s safe to say I don’t believe it 🙂

    @DesireeAnne: I wrote a post about this very thiing yesterday (maybe the day before?) The guy you’re talking about is Harold Camping.

    I know this, because my father and his family have subscribed to this dolt’s ramblings for years. And believe me, he has been in EVERYONE’S face– for years. I have watched this cult steal my father away, bit by bit. When I was a little girl in 1994, he tried to scare my sister and I into believing this junk, and we spent the whole night in eachother’s bed, trembling with fear. And then, the sun came up. And it continued coming up, day after day, year after year.

    While anyone else would be dismissive about it the next time Mr. Camping opened his trap and declared an “end”, my father and his new family keep supporting this fellow. My dad once called me, SOBBING about it, and pleaded with me to read the bible with Camping’s “truth” in mind. He was inconsolable, I didn’t know what to do, so I told him I would “open my bible” when I got home that night. I did. Then I promptly shut it. I didn’t lie. He hasn’t called since, and I kind of figured he wouldn’t.

    He gives all his time to this cult, passing out fliers, posting their prophecies, and “spreading the word”. I don’t get it either. If I truly believed my last few days were upon me, I’d spend every waking second with the people I loved, and I’d make those moments count for something. According to these people, you can not do anything to save yourselves. To them, “God has left the church”, and no amount of praying and pleading will give your soul a chance. As followers of Camping see it, God’s mind is made up. If that’s true, why all the hullaballoo? Have you seen these caravans? They go to different neighborhoods, and blast a really loud horn early in the morning. That’s not a pleasant thing to wake up to.

    If anyone wants to believe, that’s fine with me, but I hate hate HATE it being forced, and crammed down people’s throats. Hey, my favorite color is deep red, but I don’t go painting anyone’s glasses that color so they have to see it every day. Grr…. ::end rant::

    Anyway, I can’t wait till May 22, so I can possibly have a “Less insane” version of my father back. If he doesn’t regain his ratiional senses, well then I guess the world really did end for him on May 21st.

    @DesireeAnne: “I can’t wait for May 22nd.”

    Me neither– I’m getting married that day. 🙂

     

    And no, I don’t believe either.
