#1 Things got very bad, TW: In their enthusiasm to help the poor, they began selling off their means of production (mines, businesses, land), reasoning that it would all burn in the end. This so impoverished the Christian Church in Palestine that they had to get help from the Greek believers several times, one of which was organized by Paul and mentioned in passing in some of his letters. The tone of the book of James becomes clear if you know the economic situation and realize he's jawboning charity out of the believers who didn't join in on the selling frenzy.

#2 The world did end on May 21st. We just haven't been garbage collected yet.

BTW: Didn't he state that the Rapture would occur then - not the end-of-the-world.

#4 Things got very bad, TW

Thank you for those critical details, Ptah -- I'm not nearly as knowledgeable about early Christian history as I ought to be. Someone ought to share that with poor Mr. Camping... and remind him that while numbers in the calculations are always exact as far out as deimal places can go, this rarely reflects the precision with which things can be measured out in the real world.
