The Guardian- The eBible Fellowship, an online affiliation headquartered near Philadelphia, has based its prediction of an October obliteration on a previous claim that the world would end on 21 May 2011. While that claim proved to be false, the organization is confident it has the correct date this time.“According to what the Bible is presenting it does appear that 7 October will be the day that God has spoken of: in which, the world will pass away,” said Chris McCann, the leader and founder of the fellowship, an online gathering of Christians headquartered in Philadelphia.
“It’ll be gone forever. Annihilated.”
McCann said that, according to his interpretation of the Bible, the world will be obliterated “with fire”.
The blood moon – a lunar eclipse combined with a “super moon” – occurred without event on 27 September. This was despite some predictions that it would herald the beginning of the apocalypse. Certain religious leaders had said the blood moon would trigger a chain of events that could see our planet destroyed in as little as seven years time.
According to this new prediction, however, there will be no stay of execution. On the day of 7 October, the world will end.
“God destroyed the first Earth with water, by a flood, in the days of Noah. And he says he’ll not do that again, not by water. But he does say in 2nd Peter 3 that he’ll destroy it by fire,” McCann said.
I'm not much of a "breaking news" guy, but I think this counts. Kind of surprised I am not seeing this anywhere else, because the world being completely obliterated by fire seems like headline material. Oh well, last day on Earth guys, don't let it go to waste, and make sure you dress cool, because apparently you're only a few hours from being engulfed in flames.
I would actually like to make a bet with this radical Christian group. Here goes. If I notice even one sign of the world ending then I will fully embrace the Christian lifestyle. I'm talking all of it. Denounce homosexuality. Swear off premarital sex. Might even pay a visit to the local church on what can only be considered the real "Ash Wednesday" (zinnnng). On the other hand, if the world doesn't get annihilated then you guys all have to kill yourselves. I know, I know, it sounds harsh, but I think I am actually doing you a favor. You can't be fully prepared to die then continue to live. The day before you think you are going to die should be the best day of your life. You should do all the things you said you would do if you didn't have any responsibilities. It should basically be your perfect day coming to fruition. It doesn't get better than that. You can't go back to your normal day to day after you've lived your best day possible. You have no choice but to kill yourself. Life after euphoria is sure to be a disappointment. Depression is all but a guarantee. This bet is a win-win for you. Either you get one more devout member of the Christian church AND you're right about the world ending, or you go out on top. Either way you leave this world feeling good about yourself, and isn't that all anyone can ask for anyway?
