Eviction arrived before second coming

Grannis, Arkansas: On September 29, 1975, the Nance family — about 40 of them in all — stopped paying all their bills (including their mortgage) because they were sure the Second Coming was about to happen. They knew this because Aunt Iola Walker had received a message from God. Ten months later, U.S. marshals evicted them, and the family members had to, once again, get jobs.

If that was true and the second coming wasn't far off, that didn't seem to stop the couple from coupling, did it?

No one knows the day or hour, but the Father only.

The day will come as a thief in the night.

You just have to smile whenever anyone claims to have a direct line to the Supreme Deity and speaks for the Deity.
