I file this under the “I Couldn’t Have Put It Better Myself.”
Mr. Harold Camping has made prophecies in the past, and his prophecies have been proven false over and over again. His latest “prophecy” warns the whole world that the end will come on May 21, 2011 (roughly six days from now). I wonder what will happen on the morning of the 22nd. I write “I wonder,” but I already have a pretty good guess.
Dr. James White, director of Alpha and Omega Ministries, has this to say (a conclusion to his article) over at his blog.
“So once again, many thanks, Harold Camping. You will once again make the Bible, the Gospel, and the cross, a mockery, all because of your insatiable pride and arrogance. This time, the Lord allowed you to fall into more rank heresy in the process, but still, you say enough “right things” to bring mockery and disrepute upon all who hold the Bible to be the Word of God. Your followers will stand to condemn you on judgment day, to be sure, but more importantly, God well knows how many of us have tried to reason with you, tried to show you the error of your ways. You refused, and now the time is coming for judgment indeed. May 21st is judgment day after all: for Harold Camping, for Family Radio, and for all who have followed Camping into heresy and error.”
