    Midnight in Jerusalem is Rapture Deadline

    Evans and his colleagues with the California-based network seem to be clinging to shreds of hope that their Judgment Day prophecy will materialize, even though their proclaimed 6 p.m. local time deadline has come and gone for New Zealand, Australia and other nations in that region of the globe — with no earthquakes, no raptures reported.
    “We’re waiting patiently for the day to be completed and see what happens,” he said from his home in California.
    But Evans added that once we reach midnight local time in the holy city of Jerusalem — about four hours away as I type this, unless like Family Radio I’ve miscalculated — he will be ready to concede that today’s rapture is a bust.
    “If it’s not going to happen then, it’s obviously not going to happen today,” Evans said, “and we were wrong.”

    Strange, because when I've read my Bible, I don't remember God doing a whole bunch of stuff in the middle of the night--Old Testament or New.

    God did say in the Bible that no one will be able to predict the end of the world so anyone that is trying is wrong.

    So does that mean as long as there is always some nut job out there predicting that today is the day, the world can never end?

    Science Fiction/ Fantasy seems more appropriate to me.

    or just flat out lies and corruption to control the masses.... Not sure if that is a section in the library though.

    Read the 10 commandments and tell me how this is "corruption to control the masses".

    Even if the Bible were a complete sham, 90% of it seems very level-headed to me.

    Actually - the 10 commandments were given to absolutely control the masses:) Some may actually view these moral laws as corrupt though...ruins all the fun
