new balance shop 2011 Judgment Day belief 'baseless And in the process he slammed the California radio host promoting the notion that the apocalypse is upon us as "someone who should not be taken seriously." In his email to the Advance, Rev. Dave Watson, the pastor of Calvary Chapel in Mariners Harbor and the secretary of the Staten Island Association of Evangelicals, criticized 89yearold Harold Camping and Family Radio for spreading "random, baseless, careless ramblings." The topic of the possible rapture has been a hot one on Staten Island of late, as borough resident Robert Fitzpatrick shelled out $140,000 for bus and subway ads trumpeting Saturday's Judgment Day. Here are excerpts from Rev. Watson's email: On Camping: The belief that Christ will come on May 21st 2011 and bring in a judgment day is built first on incredible arrogance. Harold Camping and his followers claim that Jesus' words regarding no one knowing the day and the hour have been voided. They believe they have received special knowledge, an opening of a prophecy heretofore closed to us. Supposedly, the true followers (Camping and his supporters) of Christ now understand that which has been hidden in the past. It is incredibly sad to me that many believers in Christ would embrace the speculations of this group over the words of our Savior. On those spending money on ads: Why are so many sincere Christians buying ads and hunkering down for the end? I think we as believers have forgotten the instructions of Paul the apostle from the First Century. At the end of his letter to the Thessalonians, a letter that frequently mentions the second coming of Christ, Paul simply says, "Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil." (1 Thessalonians 5:2022). All prophecies about the end must be tested. In this case we test the prediction of May 21, 2011 against the words of Christ. When we do this, the result of our "testing" need not go farther than the fact that Mr. Camping is giving a specific date and time for Christ's return. This automatically disqualifies his prediction. Remember, Jesus said that accurate predictions of the date and time of His return would not be possible! On May 22: Speaking of being ashamed, Harold Camping and those involved in perpetrating this unbiblical rouse should be ashamed. On May 22nd they will be embarrassed. Unfortunately this is only one of many unbiblical teachings that Mr. Camping has actively propagated. Camping's positions are not the well thought out, well reasoned beliefs of a serious Bible scholar. Instead, they are the random, baseless, careless ramblings of someone who should not be taken seriously. When Christ does return, Mr. Camping and his followers will have much to answer for.
