Harold Camping Is (Sort of) Right
Christianity Today ^ | 6/16/2011 | Unknown

Jesus will put an end to this earth—but that is not the end of the story.

Harold Camping said something true. The media mocked him. But even Christians who disagree with the radio preacher's Rapture theology can appreciate his basic conviction.

After his May 21 prediction of the Rapture failed (but before his June 9 stroke), he said that it had been only a "spiritual coming." He then added, "It won't be spiritual on October 21st. The world is going to be destroyed altogether, but it will be very quick."

If I were this man I would be more worried about my eternal soul than trying to predict what God will do. The earth will not be destroyed, only those left behind will be. He is trying to say he knows more than Jesus does. No one knows the day nor the hour, not even Jesus until Father tells Him. I feel sorry for those that have chosen to follow this false prophet.

Camping will be held accountable at The Great White Throne Judgement. Not only for his false predictions, but also for those he caused to stumble.

I wonder how many people “on the fence” have rejected Christ because of Camping’s failure to represent Christ properly?

He will definately be held responsible for the souls he misled, and for trying to force Gods hand. Father will not be mocked.

Profit and power attach to end times prophecy. Con men abound in all religions from Hindu to Christian much to the detriment of the messages. Osama was a fraud, Camping is a fraud. Where there is money they will come.

Probably just those dumb enough to believe him. They couldn’t have had much faith, if something like this caused them to reject Christ. I don’t think it bothered Him though, He knew what was going to happen.
