Harold Camping was wrong about what the Bible says
May 21 turned out to be just another day, no end of the world, no rapture, just another day giving us a chance to do what is necessary for when the time comes that the Lord returns to receive his children home. Undoubtedly, Harold Camping, who predicted May 21 as the end of the world, wanted a bit of publicity.
The Expositorís Bible (KJV) clearly states in Mark 13:32: ěBut of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the Angels which are in Heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.î (The Son of Man, under the self-imposed limitations of the Incarnation, says that even He himself did not at that time know the hour of the Second Advent, and of the time of the fulfillment of these other things grouped around that event; without a doubt, He now knows, and Iím sure the angels now know as well; but then they didnít.)
The Bible does not mention ěthe end of the world,î and we as Christians and believers should read the word of God and remember that no one but the Father knows when the rapture will occur. By doing this, weíll all be better off.

Was information relevant?
Regarding the May 23 article about a woman being jailed and charged with trafficking heroin and possession of several drugs:
Why was it necessary to print who her parents were and what tragedy took their lives? How could printing these facts be relevant to her arrest?
