No one knows the day or the hour. How this man could, once again, claim to have figured it all out and still name the name of Christ is beyond me.
Meanwhile, people celebrated this foolishness with drunken end-of-the-world parties, comedians had a field day, news anchors and commentators shook their heads as they yucked it up, and true believers were made to look ridiculous.
The only winner in this fiasco was the enemy of our souls.
Christ will come when He is ready. Let's put our calculators aside and live well for Him today.

That sign is full of win!

The Internet and the age of mass media makes it possible to make a fool of yourself in global proportions. Some people never learn. As my pastor pointed out, if OT law still applied, Harold Camping wouldn't have been around to make his second false prediction--he would have been executed as a false prophet after his first one didn't come true!
If a few naive and untaught Christians have become wiser as to the true teaching of Scripture as a result of this fiasco and if more mature Christians are more soberly considering Christ's admonition to live every day as if He might come at any time, this will not have been a total loss for the Kingdom.

thank God for Jesus, the cross and all that "stuff" that gets in the way of our wistful yearning for OT executions, right?

Nathan, I should perhaps clarify there were no "wistful yearnings" on the part of my pastor (nor me). His point was, of course, that Scripture takes false prophecy very seriously as a danger to the community of God's people and that a prediction not coming true was a sign of a false prophet.
As I write, Harold Camping is on Fox TV News defending his teaching saying that he will soon be able to provide a new, accurate date. . . . :-(

Or, "third time is the charm!"
My hope is that people leave his "ministry" like a rats off a sinking ship...he is undoubtably a false prophet, an unrepentant false teacher, and clearly, doesn't understand the purpose or the why of G-d's "Revelation."
