Is Jesus Christ Coming Back on October 21, 2011

Does the Bible really say that Jesus Christ is coming back to judge the world on October 21, 2011? Well, Harold Camping is at it again predicting now that the world will face final judgement on October 21, 2011 as Jesus Christ comes back to judge the world. Now, many people have short memories and, therefore, have already forgotten about the fact that Camping has been proven wrong on more than one occasion, the latest one being the failed prediction of May 21, 2011.

Fallout from Judgement Day Prediction

Well, another prediction has failed about Christ’s second coming, which was dated to May 21, 2011. Another prophesy has been shown to be false, made by Harold Camping, a man notorious for false prophesies. As the world awakes on May 22, we need to consider the implications of this false prophesy made by this false prophet, and others like him. It should, therefore, be very valuable to consider how each group of people should proceed to live lives in accordance to reality.

Update: Harold Camping has predicted a new date for the return of Jesus Christ of October 21, 2011.

To Christians Who Believed Harold Camping’s Prophesy:

First and foremost, a gentle ‘I told you so!’ is in order (read this article I wrote months ago about why Christ will not come back on May 21, 2011). Second, did you know that in OT times when prophets were proven wrong they were stoned to death? Why such harshness for mere teaching? Because if one were thought to speak for God and later proven wrong, he would be seen as a heretic of the highest order. The Bible communicates that teachers will be judged harshly because they have the capability to lead people astray from the truth. (more…)

Is Jesus Christ Coming Back on May 21, 2011?

If you’ve seen the billboards around town headlined with, “We Can Know…” or “Save the Date…” with a statement, “Return of Christ May 21, 2011,” you’ve probably been a little puzzled. What is this? Is this serious? Does the Bible really say Jesus Christ is coming back to judge the world on May 21, 2011? If you ask the organizer of this movement, Harold Camping, you will hear him say it is a certainty. Where does he get this information? Has he gleaned it from some supernatural experience? Has God told him personally? Does the Bible say this?

Read about the fallout from Harold Camping’s failed prediction.¬†and his new prediction for the coming of Jesus Christ on October 21, 2011.

First, let’s see what Harold Camping got right. The Bible does communicate that Christ will come back to judge the world. OK, we’re done. This is the extent of what is true in this sensationalistic phenomenon. But Camping is no stranger to failed predictions. He claimed the same failed prediction for September 6, 1994 in his book titled 1994. After the failure he simply claimed that he had done the math wrong. And what was this math that supposedly gave him this insight? He took the 2,000 pigs from Mark 5:13 that have absolutely nothing to do with years, and supposes them to represent years, then added 2,000 years to Christ’s birth, which he believes to be 7 BC and he came up with 1994. With regard to where we are now, we have the world ending and Christ coming back in 2011, 2012, 2014 as postulated by various false prophets.
