Should I Get a Bus and Go on Tour?

I've been thinking about going on tour to promote my own two books on eschatology (A Case for Amillennialism and The Man of Sin).

I could get a rig like this one, and use flashy graphics to announce that "No one knows the day or the hour -- Matthew 24:36."

Something tells me that won't gather the kind of crowds or news coverage that the Camping camper has . . . I should probably stick to blogging

So are they telling people to hurry up and get there partying out now and repent on the 20th.

I love the "Bible Guarantees It" claim. It reminds me of Mike Horton's line that concludes with something like, "...simply return the unused amount for a full refund". Recall time.

Interesting how the year 2012 is up there on the part of the van that over hangs the cab with a circle and a line drawn across it. Is this 2011 date a variation of some sort on an earlier prediction?

You'll have to have a little section on the outside of the bus dedicated to the things of this world that God is attempting to deliver you from before the rapture; the Yanks and the three stooges!

I just realized that they're "no 2012" date simply means that since the world will end this May there won't be a 2012. Duh! That's what I get for reading these blogs too early in the morning.

Buy the RV on credit, run up a credit card for the gas, and travel the country for two glorious months..... You see, they have to have an expiration date in order to be that irresponsible. KR, you'll need an expiration date for this to work.

Can't help paraphrasing Santayana: "Those who don't learn from past prognostications, are doomed to keep prognosticating."

Just get A-Rod and Jeter to roll with you and you'll be all set.

Someone should be there right next to them on May 22 to boldly hassle them for being unbiblical. And that hassling should continue for the rest of their lives.

A couple thoughts:
1. It appears they might already be hedging their bets. Notice the language of "It begins on May 21, 2011". That sounds like they are stating it that way so if nothing changes on 5/21/11 they can say "well we only said it would begin on that date".

2. We should probably think of 5/22 as a great day of evangelism rather than a great day of hassling.

If it "begins" on May 21, we may be in for a long ending. What happened to all those people who predicted the world would end in October 1989? Did it just start to end then, also?

Go for it! Take the entire White Horse Inn gang along. Make stump speeches on amillennialism, Christless Christianity, and Luther on free will. I'll even chip in to buy a tank of gas (with ethanol of course in case we still need to save the planet!).

Unfricken-belivable. You'd think after Camping getting it wrong so many times these people would have a clue. And people wonder why evolution takes so long.

I'd prefer to travel in a Winnebago.

" It appears they might already be hedging their bets."

2 Peter 3:8 chronology. ;-) The dispies use the same tactic.

Pastor Kim,

It's probably accurate to say you're the only eschatology-nut that is NOT nutty.

Thank God for that.

And yes...your/our view is not as fun or profitable.
