Judgement Day

There is a very much speculation going around worldwide about the end of the world. While the Mayans predicted 2012 as the end of the world, it would earlier when you ask the Oakland preacher. Harold Camping is confidently predicting the end of the world to be precise on May, 21 2011 at 6 pm with unknown time zone.

If this is true it would be the mother of all news! We're not talking about NBA Playoff games or William and Kate merraige. Who cares the Royal wedding news or Pippa Middleton escapade if the world will end more than a week from now?

There are many who scoff and say this is just a load of rubbish. What if they are wrong? How many people thought Noah was completely out of his mind when he set about building an ark?

Preacher Harold Camping has stated that, “Judgment Day was feared by the world and is the day that God will destroy the world because of the sins of mankind. The world is correct in believing that Judgment Day will come. The Bible gives us the correct and accurate information about that Day.”

How Harold Camping get his message to the world?

Camping, an 89-year-old former civil engineer turned into preacher, speaks to his followers via the Family Radio Network, with alleged assets total $120M is a religious broadcasting organisation funded entirely by donations from listeners. Camping's network now owns 66 stations in the US alone. He also makes programmes in 48 languages, boasts tens of thousands of followers across the globe, with radio stations in South Africa, Russia and Turkey.

According to the Independent report, "Mr Camping, who founded Family Radio in the 1950s, and critics point out that this isn't the first time Mr Camping has predicted the second coming. On 6 September 1994, hundreds of his listeners gathered at an auditorium in Alameda looking forward to Christ's return."

But the May 21 2011 prediction of end of the world Family Radio founder and his massive network launch a high-profile advertising campaign, with the message proclaiming the approaching Day of Judgement. Slogans were posted in more than 2,000 billboards across the US which reads "Blow the trumpet, warn the people!". Camping also mobilized a fleet of camper vans with slogans touring around every state in the nation.

Obviously the end of the world hasn't happened yet and one day, one of these preachers or ministers would be right and very few people are going to believe them. We've been listening to it for so long, were not gone to believe it, when end of the world truly does come.
