Left Behind

This sign has been on this traffic light post in front of a local gas station so long, it’s become invisible.  For some reason, I was drawn to it again this week.

DSCN7532Evidently, we were all, as the popular book series proclaimed, left behind.

The same bozo (sorry to besmirch the real Bozo) behind this charade, a fellow named Harold Camping, tried the same nonsense again a few years ago.  (I wrote about it here.)  All he has left to show for his prophetic efforts is this 22-year-old sign – testament to the folly of trying to read God’s mind – and one more reason for the rest of society to think Christians are idiots.

The Bible that Mr. Camping claims such allegiance to specifically says, “no one knows the day or hour when these things [end times events] will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself.”  That’s Jesus Himself talking as recorded in Matthew’s gospel.

Jesus didn’t know, but Harold thought he did.

Even the most righteous among us is evidently free to ignore any statements of Christ that cramp our style.

For my own failings and those of Mr. Camping, please accept my profound apologies.
