Move over Harold Camping – you got the month and approximate date right, you were just out by a year. The end of the world is May 27, this year, 2012. Nothing to do with the Mayan calendar (yes I wondered too if the world was going to end in 2011 when I found that all my calendars ended on December 31!). No; this is a Christian calculation from another we-get-all-our-teachings-from-the-Bible church.

Many of you will remember the magazine the Plain Truth, of Herbert W. Armstrong and the Worldwide Church of God (we’re talking the 1980s – the monthly magazine, with a circulation of 8 million, was free). Herbert W. Armstrong was typical of so many leaders of such sects, destroying families, living extravagantly from the tithes of followers (he taught 30% of gross income), teaching against remarriage after divorce (except for himself, of course). When he died the Worldwide Church of God fragmented into splinter groups, each with their own leader and teaching that they had the truth from the Bible.
