Judgment Day May 21
May 14, 2011 by staff
Judgment Day May 21, If you believe that the last of the predictions of recent times, time is running out on his life. Just a week before everything crashes. A loosely organized group of Christians led by Family Radio Worldwide founder Harold Camping is to predict the rapture and the Day of Judgement will be held May 21. Some members distributed leaflets in Fresno in February as part of the domestic operation of the group of cities to spread the word. Valley posters announcing the recent past also rose.
The belief that Christ will return to Earth and end the story has been one of the principles of the Christian faith since the first century. The book of Revelation, which ranks last in the New Testament describes this conclusion in a very descriptive language.
Camping says he believes that the Bible functions essentially as a cosmic calendar explain exactly when several prophecies are fulfilled. He also predicted the end of the world in 1994.
Andrea Fiala, chairman of the department of philosophy at California State University, Fresno, and author of “What would Jesus really do: • The power and the moral teachings of Jesus”, said predictions about the end times have existed for a long time, perhaps since the beginning of Christianity.
He believes that people have long sought to provide greater clarity to the moral issues, especially when world events are difficult to explain.
“There is a feeling that when there is a crisis in the world, we hope that some kind of trial,” says Fiala. “We’re hoping to have some separation of good and evil. Much of this debate the Rapture and the recent past because there is a final decision related to it, especially when we feel things are out of control. There is hope for the moral clarity that can be provided by a kind of last hope, or fear, to end what could happen any day. – The coming of Christ. ”
Many local religious leaders are skeptical about the May 21 forecast.
“That’s crazy – to predict the day when Jesus will return,” says senior pastor of North Church, the Reverend Stoll.
Stoll says that teaches about the rapture and the day of the trial based on Matthew 24:36, where Jesus says: “Nobody knows the day or hour, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father.”
Unfortunately, Stoll says, many pastors and evangelists have failed for a long time with their predictions.
“It’s very, very strange,” he says. “Anyone who sees the theology that leaves the next day’s paper has no idea.”
Stoll says the New Testament writings are clear that Jesus’ return is imminent.
“He can return at any moment,” he says. “We talked about it a little, but we do not know the day nor the hour.”
Central Fresno officials Seventh Day Adventist Church believes that the May 21 forecast is to scare people unnecessarily.
Associate Pastor Gary Jensen Camping calls a “false prophet” who is making the mistake of mixing literal and symbolic passages in the Bible to draw conclusions and predictions.
Stephen Bohr, senior pastor of Fresno Central Seventh-day Adventist Church, is giving a special lecture on “The End of the world on May 21, 2011?” 11 am service May 21 at the church, 2980 E. Yale Ave.
“Many, many people have bought into this, we would also serve to discuss this issue so that people could hear the other side,” says Jensen.
The newly formed Central Valley Coalition of Reason, a collection of three groups atheist and skeptical Valley, is also weighing on the May 21 forecast.
The coalition paid for a billboard – “I do not believe in God Join the club?” – Blackstone avenues in Saginaw, which rose 3 May and will remain on display on 21 May.
David Costa, vice-president of the group, says he does not believe in prediction.
“To believe anything like that, you have to take the Bible literally, specifically the Book of Revelation,” Costa said, adding that he believes the book of Revelation is an allegory. “Most Christians do not necessarily believe everything in the Book of Revelation will happen. I’m still one step removed from it.”
