It’s the End of the World and Everyone Feels Sarcastic
If you are reading this, then a Pennsylvania group's website declaration that Wednesday was the the last day on Earth was probably wrong.
According to the eBible Fellowship, Oct. 7 marks the end a period of "spiritual judgement" by God that started on May 21, 2011, during which time the people of the world were divided into two groups.
"The first group are the unsaved and are of this world," reads a post on the group's Facebook page. "The second group will be saved and taken to a new Earth. Their sins have been forgiven. They wait for the completion of judgment day and entrance into the new heavens and new earth. We rejoice with them."
Instead, it turned out to be a day when R.E.M.'s "Its the End Of the World As We Know It" got a few extra plays by co-workers as they talked about it.
Church founder Chris McCann has not said exactly when the end will come, but he expects fire to destroy the world.
“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,” he told the Guardian.
