Hello NASL, they actually had people putting complete Car Wraps about impending doom on their cars! Harold saw esoteric meanings in various texts and coupled, with a dash of numerology ,came to many of his conclusions/predictions. I know you're not a Christian, but for believers his errors should have been easy to see, the trouble lies with many don't really research scripture themselves, preferring to be "spoon-feed" by one who projects 'authority'(pastor, teacher,priest,ect).<quoted text>
I agree - his nonsense has caused many to be blinded by bologna.
Shoot - there was one guy who bumperstickered his whole car with this nonsense.
More than likely - "Gary" was he and refused to acknowledge it, thus further misleading himself and others with false information, because he refused to be honest.
Also, it in the eschatology that's prevalent in many churches today - Darbyism, and the "great escape" from your earthly woes, and troubles(and pesky creditors, bosses, ect - I write somewhat tongue-in-cheek but if the truth be told...)
