judgement day on may 21, ’11 or wacko theologies


The people of the flemish ‘atheism campaign’ facebook group like to share sites they find that ridulise ‘faith’, which seems to be so monolithic to them that the most wacko example of it in their eyes only affirms their ideas about ‘religion’. For me that’s like linking to satanic blackmetal to say that all music in itself is evil and unchristian, but I’ve noticed that such discussions don’t work with them. Which is another sign that those ‘new atheists’ can be very fundamentalist… But that’s another story…

Tog get on topic: Today they had found a site unlike anything that I’ve ever seen in Christianity: A tract from the so-called e-bible fellowship about the end of the world, which says judgement day will happen at may 21, 2011. Yes, indeed, that’s what they say, the rapture will be may 21 next year, followed by a compete ending of the world 5 months later, including the annhilation of all non-saved people…:

“On October 21st, 2011, God will completely destroy this creation and all of the people who never experienced the salvation of Jesus Christ along with it. The awful payment for their sinful rebellion against God will be completed by the loss of everlasting life. On October 21st, 2011, all of these poor people will cease to exist from that point forward. “

Oh, and the church is now since 1988 the domain of satan:

“On May 21st, 1988, God finished using the churches and congregations of the world.  The Spirit of God left all churches and Satan, the man of sin, entered into the churches to rule at that point in time.  The Bible teaches us that this awful period of judgment upon the churches would last for 23 years.”

I have no idea what awful period of judgment upon the churches we have been experiencing the last 22 year, but it must be serious. Is it the evil Toronto belessing? Or the worship music explosion? Or even worse the emerging church heresy? I have no idea that we in church are in an awful period of judgment, but I guess I’m a lost non-elect and my eyes are closed to the truth because of that… (If that is the case then I like the idea of annihilation more tha eternal conscious torment!) Since the site is also extremely deterministic-calvinist I suppose that if I’m not one of the elect I can try whatever I want but God will destroy me anyway because he only wants to save some not including me…

Okay, to be serious now. The nonsense from this site is dangerous bullshit, dare I even say destructive heresy. Yes I  dare to use the BS-word, and even the h-word. As someone who has in my life only suggested the h-word just once, for extreme dispensationalists who declared the Lords prayer part of the law that was abolished with the cross, and not for us Christians from the church dispensation. But now I’ll use it. I may be too eucumenical for some, believing in a generous orthodoxy and all that, but some things cross the line. And surely not much thinking people in the educated west will fall for this kind of false teaching. But they are distributing their message also in a lot of different languages including a lot of african ones.

The harm that such a teaching can do in unevangelised places where people do not know the basics of the gospel is big… And it will be bigger when there is no judgement day on may 21, and no end of Creation five months later… Those who believed in it will probably never be able to trust the bible or christianity again. While the e-bible guys may just say ‘sorry, we miscalculated, it will be within 3 years’. And indeed, a miscalculation isvery possible with people who say that jesus was born in 7 BC and died in 33 NC, giving him a lifespan of 40 instead of 33 years…

sigh…

what more can I say?

One response to “judgement day on may 21, ’11 or wacko theologies

  1. IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN!

    THE BIBLE SAYS THE TRUE BELIEVER WILL KNOW THE DAY (ECCL 8:5) AND THAT IT WILL NOT SURPRISE HIM AS A THIEF (1 THESS 5:4).

    THERE IS ABUNDANT INFORMATION ON THE SUBJECT COMING RIGHT OUT OF THE BIBLE.
    IT WAS NEVER KNOWN BECAUSE IT WASNT SUPPOSED TO BE UNTIL THE LAST DAYS (DANIEL 12)

    DONT GO TO CHURCH. GOD USED THE CHURCH DURING THEIR ERA TO GET THE GOSPEL OUT. THEIR JOB IS DONE AND THEY HAVE GONE ASTRAY. GOD HAS PUT SATAN TO RULE THERE. THE CHURCH ERA IS OVER!!! (2 THESS 2 AMONG MANY OTHERS)

    CRY FOR MERCY, ONLY GOD CAN SAVE YOU OUT OF GRACE. THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO BECOME SAVED.

    Pss 51:17 The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
