Posted on 05/21/2011 7:35:03 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Ed Stetzer, head of the Southern Baptist Convention's LifeWay research:
"Harold Camping, pls update http://www.familyradio.com w/ your repentance statement & instructions to your now-broke followers."
Al Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary:
"We will not be surprised that Christ has not returned according to any human's timetable. But we should not be relieved. Lord come quickly."
Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle:
"It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine." REM
Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church
The world didn't end. I told you not to worry. See Mark 13:32
"NO ONE knows the day when these things will happen;not the angels nor THE SON HIMSELF! Only the Father knows"
Marcos Witt, Latin gospel singer and pastor of Spanish services at Lakewood Church:
Concerning His return Jesus said: "about that day or hour no one knows..." (Mark 13:32) Go out and enjoy this day the Lord has made!
Bishop T.D. Jakes, pastor of the Potter's House and head of T.D. Jakes Ministries
"I'm here just as I expected."
I’m glad you’re feeling better, sorry you have to have another. YUCK. :( Prayers.
The damage this Nut does to the message Christians are trying to get out to the unsaved is unmanageable. Using phrases like The Bible Guarantees It, only makes it harder for our missionaries and evangelist to discuss the Gospel with those who dont know the Bible, particularly in foreign lands where much of his advertising was done.
And when discussing prophecy and end-time events with others we will be forever doing damage control, when they come back with wasnt that supposed to happen back in May of 2011?
This is why Jesus gave a special warning in Mathew 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Seeing Dr. Dover, Dr. Ben Dover? Sorry, been there, done that, don’t want to do it again.
May God be with you as you heal, friend.
One of the 6 polyps taken out was as big as the end joint of my little finger. Biopsy due in a week.
Soooooooo, am thankful I followed through. Praise God for making it clear to me that I needed to.
A repeat performance is certainly not my favorite recreation.
Besides, who knows what shape the world will be in in 3-6 months!
Thx for your kind reply.
Took me a 2nd or 2 to figure out that one.
Thx for your kind reply.
I never met a con man I didn't like. I was on the Board of Directors of a local not-for-profit whose Executive Director didn't take a salary but embezzled the place for more than $500,000.
I’ve certainly lost count on the number of times I’ve been wrong long ago.
However . . .
Camping’s personality is just not like that.
I think he’d be more likely to give his shirt for the cause and go down gladly in flames . . . FOR THE CAUSE.
I’d expect him to be scrupulously honest to the point of absurdity. e.g. knocking on neighbors doors to see if the nickle on the sidewalk was theirs.
RE: I think hed be more likely to give his shirt for the cause and go down gladly in flames . . . FOR THE CAUSE.
Good intentions are no substitute for Biblical Wisdom.
You know the old adage about the road to hell and what it is paved with...
RE: Id expect him to be scrupulously honest to the point of absurdity
An honest person would REPENT and say publicly I WAS WRONG and APOLOGIZE for misleading many people. If Camping does that, then maybe he can be reconciled with but not until.
That aspect may be true, yet he is more than just flawed, but has
flagrantly taken the name of God in vain by claiming God revealed the rapture would occur on May 21,
and given occasion for the name of Christ to be blasphemed among the heathen,
and placed a stumbling block before the simple who heeded him,
and seduced them into loss of substantial amounts of time and money
and seriously impugned the integrity of the Bible and prophecy among the ignorant public by asserting it guaranteed his false prediction,
and has made a mockery of Biblical hermeneutics with his any-digit-will-do methodological madness,
while also teaching heresies such as that Jesus died twice,
and denying eternal torment,
and the nature of the church and its preservation,
and damning all who are in the visible church
while making those who agree with him to be the elite enlightened, etc.
Certainly we all have erred, but this man has willfully and boldly gone to extremes few have gone before, with his erroneous esoteric eschatology and egregious elitism, and effectively has become an instrument of the devil who is the author of deception.
Hungover from having my last drink(s)
The Rapture DID happen. It's just that no one qualified.
The only way to know for sure, is look at the little sign on the shop window. If it says "Be Back in 15 Minutes", you can count on it.
RE: Hey folks, Harold Camping probably skipped town with the ministry portfolio.
Reuters reported that the curtains were drawn in Camping’s house in Alameda, California on May 21, and nobody was answering the door.
RE: The Rapture DID happen. It’s just that no one qualified.
Followers of Camping claimed that around 200 million people (approximately 3% of the world’s population) would be raptured.

LOL. Con men are indeed incredibly likeable.
