The promise of rain

Do you ever feel short changed when the weatherman predicts a 90% chance of rain - only to be disappointed by a windy/gloomy day? I even rode early today to beat the rain, but so far it has been in vain.

We got a visit from the Jehovah's Witnesses yesterday. I thought most Christians were obsessed with the end of the world. I did a little research, turns out the JWs have been obsessed with the concept for quite some time. You'd figure by the 3rd or 4th time you predict the end of the world incorrectly people would begin to question your theology...I guess not.

At my door they used the tsunami, the oil spills and the recent train crash as evidence - these types of disasters are predicted in the bible right before Jesus comes again. Not to steal Owen's thunder, but, haven't these types of disasters happened as long as we have been able to record them? Could the bible do this to contrast their nonexistence once Jesus does return? In any case, I think putting your focus on when the world is going to end would be a waste of time...unless of course your trying to prevent asteroids from hitting earth ;-)
