Also Harold Camping was the bloke who predicted, and was shown to be wrong, that the second coming of jesus would be in 1991....
I'm not religious in any way
True! Also, from what I have read, 1994, 1998, and 2008...
He's definitely a false prophet. I hate that he's causing so much pain and confusion and making Christians and Christianity look bad.
Whether he's a false prophet remains to be seen, but I doubt it will happen. But remember what the bible says about watchmen. He seems convinced it's true so he's doing his moral duty to warn others.

Not many people are aware that Jesus is already here.
Just a little over 2000 years ago, we arrived on the earth for the first time. My name then was Yeshua ben Yosef, or the Jesus of the Bible, the son of Joseph and Mary. Mary's name then was Mary of Magdala, the woman identified in the Bible as Mary Magdalene. Mary was my wife then, and the first person I appeared to after I was crucified.

I would love to be able to find a bunch of lifesize blow-up dolls to fill with helium and start releasing them at 6pm. Maybe if I could find a congregation of these nutjobs that are waiting for the rapture and do that close by so they would see the dolls rising up to heaven to make them wonder why they weren't "chosen".

Jesus did not predict Sunday's Rapture...
A lunatic by the name of Harold Camping did....
I'm so sick of Harold and his fundamentalist ramblings
Christians are not saying this... extreme fundamentalist lunatic's are...
Jesus said this...
Mark 13:32 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
Acts 1:7 He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has put in his own authority.
Mathew 24:36 "But the day and hour no one knows.not even the angels in heaven,but my Father only.
