A prophecy about May 21 that did come true…!

On March 1 this blog featured the article “Do we have a date with Armageddon – or with “new views of divine goodness and love”? before the subject of this year’s rapture prediction became popular…

Its prediction that things would be a more or less unchanged on May 22 has proved true…!

My sympathies to those whose dreams of a preferential trip to heaven were disappointed, but as one Twitter commenter put it: “What is so sad about the whole rapture thing is that some people believe in a God who would do that!”

Of course, it was easier for those making such claims in the past… when previous rapture predictions came and went unfulfilled, the prophets of a God who could play favourites didn’t have to reckon with the wit of the Twitterati…! Here are some of the Tweets that caught my attention over the past 24 hours, as the rapture has been trending!

    Hello Tony,

    I completely agree with the Twitter comment you quoted above – actually, this is one thing I haven’t seen discussed anywhere in the media, even where people are criticising or ridiculing the failed doomsday prophecy. What does it say when so many people believe in a wrathful, vengeful, hateful deity who would save a mere handful of “true believers” and violently destroy all other people and the rest of His own creation? That kind of God sounds far more like a projection of human fear and hatred and insecurity to me. I only hope that those who were taken in by all this might now wake up and start to learn just how truly good – and all-loving – God really is.

Let me know what you think!
