Another rapture prediction! — Hal Lindsey was wrong (The Late Great Planet Earth). Edgar Whisenant was wrong (88 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Be in 1988), Harold Camping was wrong (his well-publicized prediction of the rapture in 2011).

Don’t worry, however, because the Bible tells us that the rapture will really be in 2014 or 2015. So say the folks over at Why? Because there will be “blood moon” lunar eclipses on Passover in both of those years, as well on the Feast of Tabernacles and the Feast of Trumpets.

They even have a countdown clock to help you prepare:

Jesus said that he didn’t know when he will return. I don’t know either. I think I’ll go plant a tree.

YECs aren’t YEC-y enough — So says Most of them “Deny Scripture by Embracing the Heliocentric Myth and are thus False Teachers.”   “You won’t find any Earth ‘spinning’ and ‘wobbling’ heliocentric ‘sun worship’ mysticism inside here!!!”

Moldy Jesus image on shower wall —  “HOUSTON (KTRK) — A family in Splendora claims they have a holy vision inside their home, an image of Jesus created by mold in a bathroom. They say the image is giving them strength.”

Watch the video from KTRK in Houston.

I think they would gain more strength from reading their Bibles, praying, worship, holy communion, fellowship, and service.

And I think they need to clean their bathroom.

What Americans consider to be sinful — From The Atlantic: birth control (good), adultery (bad), suicide (bad), suicide if the doctor does it (not as bad)…

Geocentrism lives

Here’s a conference I’m not going to: Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right — First Annual Catholic Conference on Geocentrism.

Here are the talks:

  • Geocentrism: They Know It But They’re Hiding It
  • Introduction to the Mechanics of Geocentrism
  • Scientific Experiments Showing Earth Motionless in Space
  • Scientific Evidence: Earth in the Center of the Universe
  • Answering Common Objections to Geocentrism
  • The Biblical Firmament: Outer Space is Not Empty
  • Galileo and the Church: What Really Happened?
  • The Fathers and Exegesis of Scripture on Geocentrism
  • English Ideology, Newton & the Exploitation of Science
  • Carbon 14 & Radiometric Dating Show Young Earth

There are a few Evangelicals promoting this sort of stuff as well. Some time around 2000, a major Christian home school catalog had a book promoting geocentrism on its cover; I wish I had saved that.

Let it be the foolishness of the cross that drives people away from Christ if they so choose. We shouldn’t add our own foolishness.

Grace and Peace
