Biblical scholar's date for rapture: May 21, 2011

We were driving across Nashville yesterday, when I spotted a curious billboard that read: "He is coming! May 21, 2011." Huh? Was this another prediction of the Rapture, posted in billboard form? Sho nuff. Harold Camping is the dude who is pushing this date, and his followers are pretty jazzed about it, apparently. Jazzed enough to spend the dough on a huge billboard campaign. (A Camping campaign, HA!) Problem is, Harold predicted Christ's return back in 1994, and you may recall, it didn't happen. Anyway, check out this article; I don't know if it'll make you scratch the 2012 End Time date off your calendar, but it may give you a chuckle. Or make you smite your forehead.

While individual false prophets like Harold Camping have come and gone, the Jehovah's Witnesses are the only existing worldwide religious organization formed (in the 1880s) for the sole purpose of preaching that Jesus Christ had already returned in 1874 -- invisibly and secretly to everyone except followers of the WatchTower Society.

Here is the internet's BEST and most brief historical summary of the Jehovah's Witnesses -- who are an offshoot of the Adventists:

The following webpage explains how the Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide preaching work fulfills Jesus Christ's warning to his followers -- as recorded in Matthew 24 -- that while some false prophets would predict the time of His Second Advent, that a certain False Prophet also would proclaim that He had already returned, and only that False Prophet knew when and where:
