What we'll miss if the world ends

If the doomsday folks are correct, there are at least two judgments we will miss – mainly who will be crowned the winners of "American Idol" and "Dancing With the Stars."

The clock is ticking toward May 21, which listeners of  Family Radio have marked as the Day of Rapture, when Christians will be caught up in the air to meet Jesus. The day will also, they say, be the start of a five-month Judgment Day and the end of the world as we know it.

If true, that would suck for so many reasons including the mass destruction and chaos which is sure to follow. But let's consider a few reasons why it would be a tragedy in the realm of pop culture.

  • The little monsters will totally miss out on the official release of Lady Gaga's new album "Born This Way" slated for May 23, though to console themselves they can check it out online since, like the truth, it's out there.
  • We'd also never get to hear Beyonce's new album, titled "4," or Dr. Dre's "Detox" album that we've been waiting on for years. (And speaking of Beyonce, we'll never get to see if she and hubby Jay-Z finally do procreate.)
  • Got a thing for smoking monkeys? Well forget about catching one in "The Hangover Part II," as that release date is May 26.  Ditto for  the eagerly awaited films "Green Lantern," "Captain America" and " Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" which bow June 17, July 15 and July 22 respectively.
  • Oh, and don't even get us started on missing "X-Men: First Class" opening on June 3, "The Smurfs" movie on July 29 and "The Muppets" in November after all of that build-up!
  • We will never know if  the troubled Broadway production "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" made it to its formal opening, because that isn't scheduled to happen until June 14 (that one has naysayers too).
  • We wouldn't get to see "Jersey Shore" take on Italy, the final episode of "Oprah" after 25 years or the debut of "The X Factor" this fall – though some might argue "The Voice" has already stepped on "X Factor's" toes anyway.
  • And seriously, who wants the world to end before we find out the answer to the mystery that has been looming for so long: Who the hell is the mother on "How I Met Your Mother"?

    I love how this 80-year old civil engineer consulted every possible source on the subject of the Rapture EXCEPT the only one that matters – the Bible. Matthew 24:36 says, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." II Thessalonians 2:1-3 says, "Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction." Basically, no one knows, and those who come saying they know should not be trusted.

    The Book of Revelation talks about several signs that will fortell the coming of Christ and the final days, and although we can't predict that day, as many will try to do, what we CAN do, is always be ready. How do we do that? Trust Christ as our Savior and ensure our place in Heaven. In John 14:6, Jesus says, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." This is the truth, folks. 🙂

    This article is a lie...point blank. IF (and thats a lofty if) this Rapture B.S. actually happens then most of us (the ones who are not the choosen few, what was it 500 in the entire world) will still be here to enjoy everything layed out on in the list because the end of the world is not May 21st, thats just when stuff gets set in motion. The end is 5months after the Rapture which puts us at October 21st all of the stuff on the list coms out before then.
    But in reality there is a greater chance of an asteroid smashing into our lovely home OR you suffering an aneurysm , before this end of the world stuff Extreme Christians speak of. But then again they would say God caused those as well. Instead of pouring over your Bibles looking for clues to when the world will end or looking for "proof" trying to descredit the Family Radio group get out and live life we are allllllll going to die anyways in the end.

    God didn't say no one will never know. God always revealed destructions days to His prophets in the past. I suggest all Christians just pray for truth instead of critisizing others. Mr Camping from Family Radio do nothing just pray for truth n study the Bible. GOD'S words will come to pass and when it does (May 21, 11) I will miss nothing of this wicked world. God bless you and have mercy on all of you.

  27. just some guy

    There are many people who do believe in God, and do believe that one day Christ will return. But, only God knows the date, and the rest of the stuff this group talks about is just wrong anyway.

    But, let's assume for a moment that there is a God, there is Christ, and one day God is going to send Him back. What happens? Those who have believed and been born again, also called saved, and have died, will rise up, and be given new bodies. The people who believe and are still alive will rise up into the air, and be transformed into the same new bodies. Then, poof, in an instant, they're gone. So, what happens to the rest?

    Life goes on. By the way, the Bible says that there are two Gods, the God and Father of Jesus Christ, and the god of this world, the devil. Guess who gets complete control of the world? Since the devil is all about destruction, darkness, chaos and evil, that's pretty much what's going to reign over everything. For those of you who thought this has already happened, 'you ain't seen nuttin' yet!'

    So, it's very possible you'll see those movie releases, see who wins what on AI and DWTS, and all the other stupidity on television and in the theaters. And, life will go on for the next thousand years or so, but I guarantee it won't be a good life, one that you'd really want to live. It most certainly won't be like the life you have today. At some point, you may even go 'Ooops. You know those Christians we used to laugh at? I wonder why we don't hear from them any more? Do you think they were right?' You'll think about it, and probably say 'No, just another fad' and you'll not know until you do stand before God, and He says 'I'm sorry, your name is not in the Book of Life.' Then, you will know. But, it'll be too late.

    So, even though I highly doubt Christ is coming back this Saturday, one day, He IS coming back. For your sake, I hope that you're among those who will be gathered together.

If CHRIST MY SAVIOR,! Died in the flesh, what makes you think your flesh doesn,t have 2 do the same. The 144000 please know what you are talking about?

    When the REAL Rapture occurs and the Lord's judgment is brought forth, wondering who won American Idol or Dancing with the Stars is the LAST thing that going to be anyone's mind.

    Obviously, this Saturday is an unlikely day for the end of the world, just as the end of the current Mayan calendar far fetched. I mean, when the end of my calendar occurs every year on December 31st, I just put up a new one for the next year.

    But, whether your concern is with Armageddon, Rapture, Asteroids, War or even Zombies, it is prudent to still be prepared. Everyday, people around the world are faced with life threatening and life changing events. For them, it is the end of the world, no matter how local or persona it may be.

    People should prepare for the worst by storing food for up to a year or more, putting together bug out bags to keep by the door and have a plan worked out ahead of time.


    Those who have found themselves confronted by earthquakes, tsunamis, radiation, tornados and floods in the recent few months past certainly would have benefited by some planning and preparation ahead of time.

    Mr. Camping said he studied the bible and used equations to come up with the date and time. Sure anyone could string a few words from the bible together, throw some numbers into and equation and come up with something. He has been wrong once before and when asked about this he stated that before he was "tripped up" by some versus which led him to giving a wrong date but before that he knew it would be 2011. So he back peddled which is what he will be doing on Sunday or Monday morning. Mr. Camping is just an old man with nothing better to do then to go through the bible, make up his own theory about the end of days and spread it around to make himself feel important. I am sorry but the fact that this random man knows the the date and time in which this world will come to an end is crazy. In my opinion, mankind will destroy this earth on their own without the help of God.

    honestly, judgement day probably will not happen on may 21.

So if these people are saying that judgement day is on may 21, then that means that God would have rather told them instead of Jesus? I don't think so. Besides, the man who came up with this speculation only chose certain numbers in the bible, added, divided, and multiplied to get exactly what he wants. Anyone can do that.... I'm a christian, and I believe that NO ONE will know exactly when Jesus comes. P.S ( this dude made the same prediction in 1994...)

      I agree, scripture shows the truth re The end of the world
      Well from my understanding the end fo our planet wont occur for quite a while yet from what we find in revelation one would pray not wish to be here for what will take place. Jesus seeks to save the lost- we dont know how long we have-those who dont believe they are lost of course wont be interested but one may say what if I am wrong what is my net loss at the end of life . If i as a beleiver were wrong one could say I gave my live to a cause that was untrue yet consider the athiest loss – if there is as I believe so a God and an eternal existance in heaven with him or hell without -what do you stand to loose if you fail to come to Christ before eternity ?

    It is interesting to read all the comments. Harold Camping/Family radio has been blight on Christianity for a long time. I think when Saturday passes, and nothing happens, his ministry will finally be put to rest. Harold is a false prophet and I find it sad to put 2,000 some other Christian denominations with a vast different teaching all under the unbrella of Harold. Bad reporting. What I find interesting is the comments that are written on here. Full of hate and disrespect. I am a Christian, and to say I am uneducated in mockery. I have a Master degree. Lack of respect for diversity. This article did have some truth, people's hearts are far from God. But there is nothing new under the Sun. This article and many of the comments written is a fullfillment of the times we are living in. No one knows the hour or day of the Lord Coming, but God can come to your heart this very moment, if you allow him to. Shalom!

      As usual, Bible-thumpers show a gross ignorance of scriptural meaning, content, context and purpose. The metaphysical Mind of Christ Jesus is usually not the mind of the mortals who lack the tools to interpret his profound wisdom. His sense of 'judgment" and therefore all mortal religious predictions are false. Matter will destroy itself ultimately but no one knows when.

These people are trying to get everyone roused up and this gives true Christians a bad name! I'm not judging them but how does anyone expect a non-Christian to ever have any hope of learning about God when there are so many false prophets out there making it harder to understand the Bible?

    To fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her Sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept Sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years.

    For further study -II Chronicles 36:1-21

    As we come to II Chronicles 36 we see the record of the third wave into Jerusalem by King Nebuchadnezzar and his Babylonian army to destroy the Jewish Temple, devastate the city of Jerusalem and to take a number of Jews into the Babylonian captivity.

    This is done to fulfill the prophecies of Jeremiah that I will deal with in a moment. I would have you notice the activities of this siege on Jerusalem. Verse 7 of our devotional reading sums it up in one verse. There are more details in verses 18 through 20.

    All the vessels of the Temple, with the exception of the "ark of the covenant", II Chronicles 35:3, were taken into Babylon and placed in Nebuchadnezzar's temples, verse 7. The Babylonian Army then burned the Temple down, broke down the walls of Jerusalem, burned all the palaces in Jerusalem, verse 19.

    Verse 20 states that those Jews still alive in Jerusalem will be taken back to Babylon, to remain there until 70 years had been accomplished. The purpose for this was to fulfill the prophecies of Jeremiah.

    As mentioned earlier, these prophecies were given to illustrate God's judgment on the Jews for not following His command as it relates to the land that He had given them. The command in question is found in Leviticus 25:4, the land of the Jewish people was to be given a rest, no crops grown on it, every seven years.

    The Jews were disobedient to the Lord and did not give the land its Sabbaths and thus the Lord would do it for them, He would take the Jews out of their land and give the land its Sabbaths. Jeremiah would prophecy how this would happen.

    Jeremiah 25:11 and 29:10 would foretell that Jerusalem would be desolate for seventy years and thus giving the land its Sabbaths. The Jews had not rested the land for 490; 490 divided by seven is seventy, the amount of years that Jerusalem was desolate.

    There is a very interesting Biblical principle found in this historic event. We must be obedient to the Lord or He may well do what He must to make us follow His command. I've found that the sooner I learned this lesson the easier it has been for me.

    Verse 21 in our devotional says that all of these things happened so that the "word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah" would be fulfilled. All of the prophecies of God's word will be fulfilled.

    The very next prophecy to be fulfilled will be the Rapture. There are no prophecies that must be fulfilled before the Rapture. All other prophecies, yet to be fulfilled, will be fulfilled after the Rapture. That makes this a unique time in history for all alive today.

    The Rapture could happen at any moment, even today. Even so come, Lord Jesus.

Also, 4 those who try to look 'dumb' by saying 'what's how I met your mother' or any other show: you are successful. To not watch is one thing but to not know current pop culture is another. Lastly, the req to get to heaven per christain faith is to believe jesus is son of god; the 144,OOO r jews who become believers after the rapture, during the tribulation.

    This information is very wrong. No one knows when this will occur. Jesus Christ Himself doens't even know. Our Father in Heaven is the only One that knows this. People for generations have tried to prophsize the end of the world/Rapture and beleived that it would happen in their time. Yes, i do agree the world is in chaos and headed very soon for the Rapture. War, rumors of war, weather changes to catastrophies and rumors of peace talks and signing of treaties. I do beleive it is our time. But no one in their right mind would ever be able to say the time of day it will occur at. Remember there are many false prophets today. We need to pay attention to this and make sure our faith is not shaken. After Rapture and the peace treaty is signed between Israel and nations, there will be a 7 year period of judgement not 5 months. Hopefully all of us are on the same page when it comes to the Holy Bible. (King James) The Holy written Word of God. Let us all be in the right state of living when the Rapture does occur. But no one knows when that is!!!

Even if they attempt to explain away “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father” (Mark 13:32), they cannot explain away that most every Christian, theologian, scholar, and prophet from the first Century until the Nineteenth Century all believed that the church would go through the Great Tribulation and not escape through some secret rapture that would leave the world paralyzed.

    HAROLD CAMPING – "YOU ARE WRONG" In the process you have done an injustice to true Christianity. Not that it hurt us but you've made it difficult to get people to believe the truth. The end will come and we're indeed in that time BUT MAY 21, 2011 IS NOT IT.To all – note the following Scriptures which are true.

    Matt 24:3 – 14 (KJV) the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
    And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    The Mom in 'How I Met Your Mother' is actually a character played by Sarah Chalke of 'Scrubs' fame. There was an episode that showed this, as I recall.

    Also, from what I remember of Bible Study, only 144,000 will goto heaven and there are no specific dates in the Bible as to when armageddon / the end of the world will arrive. It's great to have faith and follow beliefs (provided they do not harm others) but it's difficult to believe the Rapture claims when such specifics are not given in the bible (and many scriptures are figurative, not literal).

      Yes, bible-doomers like to pick and choose passages out of the bible that promote their specific cult mind belief and promote it as the actual word of god but when the predictions of the end or the world never quite work out, they suddenly jump into the "Oh, it's figurative, not literal" camp. This gives them more wiggle room to make excuses and more predictions for new dates thus perpetuating the ability to make more money off more gullible people. At 144,000 limited tickets for the Jesus Rapture tour, it's not likely too many seats are left after 2000 years of dead Christians are in the line ahead of everyone else. Do the math.

      @BritMike14: I'm pretty sure you missed a few episodes–the Sarah Chalke character was a short arc where they got engaged, she left him standing at the altar and left him for a former boyfriend who then made a movie about the whole thing, etc. and there is a parallel story of how he meets the eventual mother that specifically rules out any of the characters we've actually seen so far. @chuck–huh? Orion myths are certainly well before the birth of Christ, but I know of NO similarities in their lives/stories. Both, uh...male? That's about it, I think.

      @Arron. Then your fear will never allow you to enter the kingdom of heaven in which Jesus spoke of. Read the Gospel of Thomas, its The real words that Jesus spoke. The church has labeled it an agnostic Gospel because it does no go along with their ideas of who Jesus was. Don't be afraid of searching the truth......its your spirits natural way to find the true path. You have been programed to fear everything by your religion. Its a way of control. True peace comes when you find your way out of this darkness.

When they said it's time to be sad because of the economy is tanked, or I should be sad due to lack of money or the lack of a Job, or if I was overweight or if there were pending wars.

      Hello Ted,

      I encourage you to do some reading or ask any Christian friends you might have about who will be raptured. Its not the "nice and good" people that go to heaven, its those who are saved, that is, who have accepted in faith that Jesus is the risen son of God who died for their sins and was ressurrected to redeem them unto God.

      And a few of the posters are right, the Family Radio folks, however good their intentions, are misguided if they think they know when the Rapture will happen- no man knows that.

      I really appreciate the free press we enjoy in this country, but I think it is a shame that a mainstream media outlet like CNN would allow such an insensitive post basically mocking the closely held beliefs of many Americans.

      This article has nothing to do with Jehovah's Witnesses, so why is this relevant? And the dates you list are not all dates for the projected 'end of the world' that Witnesses have touted, but are actually the dates that they suggest a variety of predicted biblical events occurred. I've also 'been there', and don't feel the need to randomly criticize their organisation. Just sayin'.

      Danny's remarks concerning the JWs and the Watchtower society are extremely relevent. This group Family Radio is also a false prophet just like the JWs and the Watchtower society. The dates Danny cited as false predictions for the end of the world by the Watchtower society are accurate. The JWs only back peddled and made excuses after their false predictions did not come to pass. This is the same thing this leader of the Family Radio has done.

      The Bible clearly states in several places that NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR WHEN THE WORLD WILL END!!!
      The Bible says in the book of Matthew, chapter 24, verses 35 & 36,
      "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
      But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."

      So, the people of this group, Family Radio, have either been deceived, or they are false prophets, just like the JWs. Matthew 24:11 warns us, "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."

If you had taken the time to speak to any one of us, then you would know that we have no date for the end of the world. The Bible clearly says that we will not know the date or the hour only the signs preceding the event. No witness that I know is out there telling people the world is ending May 21.

These people are scared of death and believe all that just helps them cope with it. The movie call "the invention of lying" is a good example.

      That is some good stuff! I believe that God is a loving God and will allow us to be of witness to all these things!

      Don't worry, if it is true, you will be here to see all those things. People who will go in the Rapture, are not so much interested in the things you mention. Enjoy! Oh, and by the way, I don't believe it will be this day but that is just me talking!

      Religion or no religion, there's one thing no one will miss... it's the insignificant, incompetent posters who have posted before me on this particular thread (and possibly the rest of the articles).

      @SabrainSyria If you learn the difference between 'who' and 'whom', I might take your declaration of the Almighty's non-existence more seriously. Thanks.
