I’m sure you’ve heard about it. Harold Camping has predicted that judgment day is tomorrow, May 21. He and his followers are expecting the rapture to happen, but it won’t. Unfortunately, many Christians’ hopes will be dashed, and some will probably give up their faith in Christ. His followers should have learned from his first false prediction that the Lord would return in 1994 that Camping is a false prophet.
I would love to hear Camping’s radio program on Monday. What kind of calls is he going to get? I would imagine that he’d receive calls from irate followers who spent their life savings to advertise “the end” Camping predicted and guaranteed. There will be irate callers who racked up their credit cards in expectation that they would never have to pay them back. There will be scoffers who just want to rub it in his face. It’s my understanding that the day after his 1994 prediction failed, Camping acted like nothing happened on his radio show. Perhaps he’ll do the same again. Or perhaps he’ll decide it’s time to retire. Hopefully the latter.
