Judgment Day: 5 days to go?

How would you like this decal for your car?

Aside from a few passing references to Camping’s judgment day at Sunday School, there really was not much said as far as capitalizing on the situation.  Our teacher mentioned the passage Matt. 24:36, “No one knows the day or the hour. . . “  What strikes me is that Camping really has no message. It is like an exclusive club of elect people saying, “Judgment day is 5/21 and there is nothing you can really do to escape it because only God can elect people to escape it.”  What good are the billboards? If we can pray and ask that we would be one of the elect, doesn’t that contradict what they are saying about Sovereignty? What good is prayer? It is sort of depressing, if our eternal well being is totally outside of our control.

I think we should capitalize on the opportunity to evangelize this week. After the 21st has come, basically everyone will go back to normal, and be even more sure that Mr. Camping is a crackpot. Until that time, I think people who would not normally be willing to discuss spiritual things might be open. We could use a “Living Water” booklet and say something like, “I don’t think judgment day is on Saturday. But did you know there is a book of the Bible specifically written by the Apostle John, telling people how they can be 100% sure they have everlasting life?”

BTW: There have been 2 people so far who requested logins (you will know who they are as soon as they leave comments). There is a lot more to faithaloneradio than just this blog on the Judgment day.

For those who are interested here is a file I downloaded from the FamilyRadio site on Matt. 24:36. They think that close to the time of the end, that God will enable people to figure out the date.
