There are many billboards throughout the world and in many US cities that proclaim May 21, 2011 is going to be the Judgment Day.

Did You Know That All Of The Conversions In The New Testament Are Found In The Book of Acts?
A very excellent fact to know is that all of the cases of conversion are very conveniently found in the Book of Acts. Added to this is the fact that all of these cases of conversion mention baptism.
