Harold Camping and the End of the World

Last Saturday May 21st was the end of the world according to a self-proclaimed prophet and Bible Radio speaker Harold Camping. For anyone, like me, who missed it and didn't get raptured you can read about it here - and here. I know i don't really need to jump on the bandwagon but the article is great to bring any newbs to Camping's heresey, like myself, up to speed. Some comments are insane - there's even a flat out denial of Christ's exclusivity:"It has nothing to do with religion,” he said, noting Hindus and those of other faiths can be raptured. “If God has saved them then they're going to be caught up."For the Church's actual position on the 2nd coming - check Matthew 24:1-51 and Acts 1:6-7. Unlike Camping's calculations, Matthew and Acts have not been apologized for nor corrected.
The key to take from Matthew 24 is found in verse 44:

"Therefore you must also be ready,
for the Son of Man is coming
at an hour you do not expect."
