You are probably aware that some Moonbat Preacher has decided that Mar 21 is when the faithful will all be raptured, and the rest of you FILTHY STINKING SINNERS will all suffer horribly from global earthquakes and other catastrophes until the world is destroyed in October, because nothing says the Second Coming of the Prince of Peace like massive devastation.
To this person -- I refuse to do him the honor of even saying his name or linking to his website -- to this alleged prophet, I have only one thing to say:
[Jesus said:]“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."If you're still here reading this, then not only do you realize that the Moonbat Preacher's prediction of the May 21 Apocalypse is wrong, you now also know that he isn't even a good Christian, because Jesus Himself says this. Twice. The same exact phrase in two different books of the Bible. Which, I'd like to point out, doesn't happen very often.
— Mark 13:32 AND Matthew 24:36
If you believe this man, you are a fool, if for no other reason than he made this exact same claim back in 1994. If you ARE this man -- seek forgiveness now, because you aren't right with the God you claim to worship.
What bothers me the most about False Prophet Psycho Moonbat isn't that he has his doctrine wrong, or that he's spreading what are essentially heresies, but that hundreds, perhaps thousands of people are going to be in serious trouble on Sunday when they find themselves un-Raptured.“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
— Matthew 7:15
These are people who have spent or given away their life savings and have quit their jobs. What will they do for food on Monday? How will they provide for their families? How many have already put their pets to sleep, for God's sake?
I have to wonder how many will commit suicide, either upon realization of the scope of their mistake, or in anguish over "not being worthy of salvation." If we are extremely lucky, they will only kill themselves. There is however a great likelihood that they'll kill their families first.
There are going to be many, many lives shattered by the false claims of this egocentric, self-aggrandizing motherfucker, and I truly hope that these broken people have the wherewithal to pick themselves up, admit their mistake, and carry on with their lives.
"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction."
—2nd Peter 2:1
And then sue the ever-loving SHIT out of this arrogant asshole. I won't be happy until he's bankrupt and his empire in ruins, because this person --- this FILTH -- actually has contingencies in place to have his radio program keep broadcasting in the event that he's still here on Sunday. So, unlike many of his followers, he has not put his money where his faith is. Come Monday, he's still going to have a job broadcasting his bile across the airwaves, and I'm certain he will have a "reasonable" explanation for it. Something along the lines of "God showed mercy because of all the faithful."
I think faith is a wonderful thing. It can inspire, guide, uplift and comfort. The problem is that when humans get their grubby little hands on good things, they become bloated, useless bad things. Faith becomes religion, and I can't think of a single instance when religion alone helped someone. All the crimes and blasphemies performed in God's name are the result of religion, not faith. This false prophecy is already a blasphemy (a heresy at the very least) and by this time next week will probably have graduated to a crime. That's crime as in "atrocity".
In conclusion: anyone who tells you when the Rapture/Apocalypse/Second Coming will occur is full of shit and is trying to sell you something. You are morally (though sadly not legally) justified in taking the largest rocks you can find and throwing said rocks at their heads.
[And the LORD said:]"But a prophet who presumes to speak in My name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death."-- Deuteronomy 18:20
