One More: Camping’s Crime

Sums things up rather nicely.

Like other would-be prophets before him, Camping has trivialized the Day of the Lord. This is Camping’s crime: he has turned it into an entertainment piece. He gives the atheists something else to laugh about in Christianity. That’s bad, but it’s not the worst thing. He gives the doubters and seekers reason to laugh at themselves: “Silly me, to wonder about that! I’ll be more careful not to let those kinds of thoughts bother me from now on.”

    Dear Darrell,

    I would say that Camping’s crime is that of being a false prophet as mentioned in Deut. 18:20-22 (also Deut. 13). Although I do believe in the Rapture of the Church before the Tribulation, I do believe in what Jesus said in Matt. 24:36; Mark 13:32; and Acts 1:7, “no man knows the hour.” It is quite clear of this happening before in American Church history, e.g. The Millerites, The Russellites, Hal Lindsey, and Harold Camping. He is a false prophet and should be ignored even if he posts another date as he did last night to be October 21, 2011.
