Apologies to Ben Witherington for plagiarising his blog post title about the pending judgement day.

So Harold Camping and his sect have come up with a convoluted mathematical formula to determine exactly when the day of judgement will be.

I would just say this: Jesus told us not to expect his second coming as it would come like a thief in the night (Luke 12:39). Paul also told us in Thessalonians 5:2 that "..the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.". Peter backed this up in 2 Peter 3:10 and then the book of Revelation kills the topic off by telling us twice that Jesus will "come like a thief".

If Jesus says he'll come like a thief in the night then I'm fairly sure that he will. Add into the mix that Paul, Peter & John back him up in this would seem to make it pretty conclusive.

Quite then how Camping or anyone else can tell us exactly when Jesus will return is a bit mystifying.

In all the reporting and stuff around this nonsense I think the best thing I've come across is the group of atheists in Tacoma, Washington who are holding a celebration called "countdown to back-pedalling".

Just this once I'm with the atheists!
