Harold Camping has predicted that the world is going to end on May 21, 2011 (that’s tomorrow). In a recent interview, he said, “When we get to May 21 on the calendar in any city or country in the world, and … when the clock says about 6 p.m., there’s going to be this tremendous earthquake that’s going to make the last earthquake in Japan seem like nothing in comparison. And the whole world will be alerted that Judgment Day has begun.”
Stephen Hawking recently came out denying an afterlife. In a recent interview, he said, “I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”
They are both wrong. Tomorrow, we will find out that Harold Camping is wrong. When we die, we will find out that Stephen Hawking is wrong.
To be sure, the judgment is coming, … it’s just not coming tomorrow. To be sure, there is an afterlife, … we need to be ready. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, … but of that day and hour no one knows. … Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming” (Matthew 24:35, 36, 42).
