That was a fun article by Jim Catano about the coming end times [“Act Now!” May 5, City Weekly]. These predictions go way back, and Jesus told his audience that some of them would live to see the kingdom of God (Mark 9:1; Luke 9:27, 21:32; Matthew 16:27-28).
But just because Christ erred so badly doesn’t mean everybody will. The Mayans could be right about 2012 being the end, so I will hold off mocking them until a year or two later.
