Camping has used a complex series of biblical passages to calculate this date. Many followers have sold their homes and lost jobs due to this prediction. CNN news has discovered that this organization has received over 80 million dollars in donations since 2005. It is important to remember that Jesus warned us that we do not know the exact time of His second coming: "But of that day and hour no one knoweth, not the angels of heaven, but the Father alone." (Matthew 24: 36) It is good for Christians to live each day as if it were his/her last. Each day we should strive to lead a charitable life, repent for our sins and help our neighbors.
