Please, don't say you're with me.

Several hundred million Christians have managed to pass the preceding 7 days without doing anything to make a mockery of the Name of Christ or the Second Coming.  We've fed the hungry, brought medicine to the sick, comforted the broken-hearted, and encouraged the down-trodden. We've been good friends, neighbors, co-workers, and students. We prayed for our families, our leaders, and our troops. We've waited, as has every generation since Christ's ascension, for the hope He has promised us: that there will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears. We've quietly told those around us that there is Hope, and that Hope can be found the same place we found it; in the Name and Person of Jesus Christ, our Living Saviour, and our soon-coming King. Not one of those I've just mentioned, including myself, has made news. Instead, a group of, at best, misguided zealots, and at worst, outright MORONS, have proved to the watching world that Christ definitely will NOT return tomorrow, for of "that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." You have served only to provide an entertaining sideshow to those who scoff at your "faith." When you stand before God, and you surely will, even as I and everyone else will, and He asks you why He should allow you into heaven, I pray you have a better answer than "I made the home page of CNN dot com!

I am so happy I stumbled upon your blog this morning. My grandchildren just left, and for some reason I clicked "next blog" and of course, caught your picture and had to read your post. These signs along the roadside were an embarrassment to me...I so do.not.want to be lumped with this group. Yet unbelievers assume all those that proclaim the name of Christ are of the same makeup. Your post is well written and I appreciate the sentiments so similar to my own.

I so do pray for those who are lost and neglect to read their bible. Now he changed the date to October 21st of this year. Oh Jesus, please help them. Thanks for spreading the truth in your blog.

God Bless...
