Just read a story, that Camping stated he will spend Saturday at home with his wife, sitting by the radio and TV.

THAT is how he wishes to spend the last moments on earth...sitting by the TV???  Really?

Well, if the end comes at 6 p.m. as he stated, my ENTIRE family will be in an Orthodox church, at Vespers....with the relics of four saints present.  What better way to go?



It sounds like he will be watching the Preakness. Six PM is just about the time the winning horse will cross the finish line.........then poof.

If your parish is Old Calendar does that mean the rapture doesn't come until June 3?  ;)

Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.

Today is the day, ta-dut, today,
Ta-dut, ta-dut, ta-dut, today.
Today is the day, ta-dut, today,
On which, as certain prophets say,
The Lord will come for Judgement Day,
To snatch the Faithful all away,
And leave the sinners in disarray,
Uopn the twenty-first of May!
The true believers will not stay
In house or home, but flee away,
And to the world say naught but Nay,
As Camping over them holds sway.
But they may ask how he misreckoned,
When they wake up on the twenty-second.
The end of the world
is as near as the day of your death;
watch and pray.

And then my heart hath told me:
These will pass,
Will pass and change, will die and be no more,
Things bright and green, things young and happy;
And I have gone upon my way
Sorrowful.

It's probably 6 pm Eastern Time.. I just realized that that I will be standing next to Met. Hilarion, Met. of Rocor at the alter at 6 pm. He is visiting today and tomorrow. So that is a little scary.

Dare me to look at my watch and hold up five fingers, four , three , two, one.. and then look out the window.

Yes, it is supposed to occur at 6 PM EDT and 3 PM PDT.

Count down.

I just hope there is not a rash of suicides if this event does not occur as scheduled by Camping.

I was saved as a kid, so I am good.

And I just want to say to everyone I leave behind, if it happens:

I hope all you unrighteous, idolatrous whoremongers straighten your crooked ways and soften your hardened hearts as you justly suffer under the all the torments the Anti-Christ and his False Prophet shall bring upon you.

And if I am here, I look forward to talking to at least one or two of you at coffee hour tomorrow, the ugly combo of seasonal and incense allergies permitting.

One hour left.

My neighbor finished mowing his lawn at 12 noon.

And a motorcyclist just roared up the street.

Wow. A bunch of cars just took off in my neighborhood. Must be a sale somewhere.

Actually, my understanding is it is supposed to occur at 6 pm in each time zone...apparently God works in time zones, which were only instituted with advent of railways in the 19th century.

Actually Harold Camping is a calvinist cult leader who teaches that anabaptist evangelicals are going straight to hell, along with even fellow calvinists who still "go to church."   If one attends a church in the last days, according to Camping, it is a sign that he or she is "unsaved."

That's a good question.  I've seen some strange law suites.  Didn't think about this, but it just may happen.
