Judgment Day?

I saw a billboard the other day claiming to know when Christ is due to return.
Now, I'd like to make clear that since Jesus said that no man knows when He will come again, I'm inclined to believe Him, and you should, too.
Having said that, the advertised date is May 11, 2011. Isn't that right around Mother's Day? Bummer.
The thing that caught my eye was the background scene of someone writing down the date in a "two to a view" daily planner, which made me think of what the true test of faith is: you might write it down, but how many would be willing to then tear out the rest of the planner's pages, since time should then be no more?
It sure is hard to take seriously the person who has callously made a lunch date the week after Christ's return. Or is that just me?

I agree 100 percent with you, Kel.
And how many people will keep living like they are.. till about, oh, May 10th???

Good thinking, though. If they believe this, they probably also carry umbrellas during a drought while praying for rain.
