Believing that the world will end on May 21, 2011, the Family radio ministry has launched a bus ministry around the U.S. to let everyone know.

Those who believe in Jesus will be carried into heaven, while the rest of humanity will endure 153 days of ‘death and horror’ before the world ends on October 21.

The group of 10 Christians from Oakland have set out across the country in a convoy of caravans to bring the ‘awesome’ message of impending doom to as many people as possible. [‘Awesome, it’s the end of the world’: Doomsday campers travel the country preaching the Apocalypse…on May 21 – Daily Mail (watch out for ads)]

Of course, this goes to the long line of people who don’t believe what Jesus said in regards to His return—that no man knows the day or the hour—and falls right in line with those that had 88 reasons that Jesus would return in 1988, etc.

In fact, these people have stated that they got it wrong once before:

Despite his conviction, Camping has predicted the world would end before – on September 4 1994.

What’s most disconcerting is the closing few sentences:

And as if the end of the world is not bad enough, there is one final bitter pill as we approach the apocalypse.

Apparently no one from Family Radio is sure what to do to guarantee a place in heaven.

God, they say, has already predetermined the roughly two to three percent of those who will be saved come May 21.

Sadly for the rest of us all we can do is wait until the end comes. Again.

Now, I’m not sure the author is being genuine, because of what I quoted above—that you must believe in Jesus to get to Heaven.  Obviously the author doesn’t take them seriously.

As for you and I, we should take seriously that Jesus is returning—regardless of whether it’s May 21 or not.

    The author is indeed being genuine. We are friends with a family who follows Harold Camping’s Calvinistic theology…they believe that Jesus died before the foundations of the world for only a select group of people. They pray every day that He will have mercy upon them and that they’ll be among the elect raptured on May 21st. They believe it is arrogant to claim that you can “know you are saved”, that it’s enough that God has given us all a “wonderful” life here on earth, and that eternity is in His hands. So yes, it makes their traveling the world warning everyone kind of pointless. Hard to believe that they also think that 1988 marks the end of the church age, that the Holy Spirit left the churches and Satan entered them. They believe the scripture that warns all to “flee to the mountains” is a reference to Christians needing to flee the churches. And they also obviously believe that one can know the day and the hour, that God has always warned humanity about coming judgement, specifically…as in the cases of Noah and Jonah. They claim special revelation in the end times to know these things.

    Yes, we’ve engaged in many conversations that have gone nowhere. They are truly deceived. But it serves us all as a good reminder that we are to be alert, watching the skies as the Lord could return at any time…Luke 18:8, “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (KJV)
