Prediction of Doomsday in 2012 contradicts the New Testament, the
Russian Church says
Moscow, March 31, Interfax - The prediction of the end of the world
in 2012 has nothing to do with Christianity, Vladimir Legoyda, the
head of the Synodal Information Department of the Moscow Patriarchate, said.
"According to the Christian worldview, any person who states the date
of Doomsday puts on a great deal," Vladimir Legoyda said in an
interview to Govorit Moskva radio station.
He explained that such statement was "outside the evangelical logic"
because according to the Holy Writ, "of that day or that hour no one
has knowledge, not even the angels in heaven, or the Son, but the
Father." (Mark 13:32)
Legoyda reminded that many people "repeatedly predicted the end of
the world on different days," and those who wish to understand the
Church's attitude to such prophesies should read the New Testament
