Its now October
On the one hand I feel embarrassed for him .On the other I feel very sad that he has deceived people and appears to have ruined some peoples lives and is likely to have wrecked some peoples faith.
I certainly believe Christ will come again.The second coming is a foundational Christian truth, though I prefer NT Wrights theology to Harold Campings here
I wish Camping believed Jesus when he says in Mark's gospel
"However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows
As a young Christian I read Hal Lindsey's" Late Great Planet Earth" which among other things, if my memory serves me right ,named Henry Kissinger as the anti -christ!
It took me a while to learn that the book belonged under fantasy rather than theology on my bookshelf.
The Bible is not a code book that only Mr Camping can understand.It is is God's word.
Many people mock Camping for taking the bible too seriously my complaint is the opposite ,that he doesn't take it seriously enough.
