Yes, it is my last post if Harold Camping is right. You see Mr. Camping has Jesus returning sometime today. The last I heard it was 6:00 pm. Nor sure what time zone. So I better hurry and writ this.
Throughout the history of Christianity people have been predicting Christ’s return. So far they are batting .000 percent. I guess that someone will eventually make a correct prediction only because if you predict something long enough it will eventually happen.
Orthodox Christians believe in Christ’s eventual return. What they do not believe in is that we will know the time and date. We are only told we will know the season. Jesus tells His disciples that only the Father knows the time. What hubris makes men think they know more than Jesus?
Yes, I look forward to Christ’s return. I just don’t go around making predictions as the when. As a Christian I need to live my life as if Jesus will return right now and as if He will not return during my lifetime. This the only way for Christians to live. We need to spend our time telling the Good News to all, doing the work set out for us by Jesus.
Predicting dates only make it harder for un-believers to believe and for new believers to keep the faith.
Have a blessed day,
