False profits
Hi everyone, been awhile. Taz, hitch hikers guide to the galaxy was my favorite book growing up. I passed out after reading it.
You shouldn't look at the events taking place today as a sign that there is no God. If anything, this idiot Harold Camping just proves what the bible teaches us, that there will be many false profits. If you truly study the bible, it teaches us that everyday is a judgement day of sorts, and that everything we do in life will be judged. People are not saved once, they are saved every minute of every day.
Any fool who tries to predict judgement day can't be reading the bible.
Mark 13
The Day and Hour Unknown
32 But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard! Be alert[e]! You do not know when that time will come. 34 It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
35 Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come backwhether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’
Acts 1
6 Then they gathered around him and asked him, Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?
7 He said to them: It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Jeremiah 14:14-15 (New International Version)
14 Then the LORD said to me, The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries[a] and the delusions of their own minds. 15 Therefore this is what the LORD says about the prophets who are prophesying in my name: I did not send them, yet they are saying, ‘No sword or famine will touch this land.’ Those same prophets will perish by sword and famine.
If you want to try and follow Jesus, then you should live your life like He was coming tomorrow, or a thousand years from tomorrow. It really doesn't matter. We don't need people like Harold Camping to scare us into believing in God. Jesus opened the door for us to have the Holy Spirit, and each one of us has a direct hotline to God, and can judge right from wrong on our own and be judged accordingly. Why would I live my whole life one way then wait to the last second to repent?
Now let's see if after tomorrow passes and NOTHING happens if the world will then consider Harold Camping a false profit.

If you want anyone to take your post seriously you might want to spell Prophet correctly.
As people are making money on this your spelling is kinda humorous.
Also, you out of context quotes mean nothing and are worthless.
He did spell it properly. It is all about profit. In fact, almost all Christian Televangelism seems to be about profit.
Where's the dam like button?
Yes Theodoric, I meant profit, it was a pun.

These christians really could have used this money to do worldly good instead of keep preparing for heaven...
So True.

This is exactly why those who deny global warming are predominantly christian. They don't care about this world. They only care about the next.
I was speaking to a hasidic Jew the other day about conservation and climate change. He seemed to have that attitude of not caring, and that God will take care of everything, He always has, and always will.
I also know a lot of Christians who might think like that (not personally). But most of the Christians I know are concerned with climate change.
I would love to seem some facts Taz. Since you said that it is predominately Christians who fell this way, where are you getting your facts from?
I believe that God put us in charge of the earth, therefor we should take care of it, be concerned with climate change, pollution, conservation, etc. I preach it as much as I can, and to the best of my abilities. But I would love to see those facts.

Re: More Bad Stuff Ahead For The US

Franko, I've lived 76 years. I know how many more disastrous weather related things are happening to the US than ever in it's history, one after another, after another.
Perhaps buz, it's just better news. Today you learn about more things globally than ever before, not that there is more of it. That is due to technology, and media. Also with a larger population, of course more people will get hurt when a disaster strikes, but maybe not percentage wise. With better construction, and today's warning systems, percentage wise it is possible that less people get hurt today per disaster than years ago. I know this is true for at least hurricanes (according to a weather channel report I saw).
