Plans for Saturday?

There is a Christian group that, for months now, has been spreading the word that the Rapture will occur and Judgment Day will begin this coming Saturday, May 21, 2011, at 6:00 p.m. (6:00 p.m. because a gigantic earthquake will begin at 6:00 p.m. on the international date line and work its way westward through the time zones, an hour at a time. So it will hit the eastern time zone in America at 6:00 p.m. this Saturday night.)

I'm not planning on it for two reasons: The gentleman making this prediction made a similar prediction a number of years ago and he was wrong then. But more importantly, Jesus said He didn't even know when the end would come:

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels

in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." (Mark 13:32)

I'm not a scoffer—I definitely believe Jesus is going to return to earth. I just don't think it's going to be this Saturday. If it does happen, and you see a post on this blog from me on Sunday, then we're both in a bunch of trouble.
