End Of The World Prediction: Another Black Eye For The Christian World Community?

His Family Radio draws listeners from around the Globe, they pour Millions of Dollars faithfully into his Broadcast Evangelism, and he is highly touted as a Biblical Scholar. The only problem is that he can’t seem to pinpoint the exact date of Armageddon. As May 21, 2011 came and went the Native Oakland, CA Preacher ‘s prediction of doomsday vanished as quickly as the finances paid to his Radio Ministry. The Elderly Harold Camping had been teaching Listeners that the Rapture as depicted in the Bible would occur, Millions would be killed, and those left upon the Earth would endure turmoil for 5 months until October 21. 2011. Camping claim to have discovered a secret mathematical encryption with in the Bible that reveals the exact day that the World would come to an end. The prediction gained momentum when Time Magazine did a Story, NPR News ran a Clip, and over 2,000 Billboard Ads proclaiming Campings prediction popped up around the Nation. Camping is not new to the Doomsday Stage as he also had a failed prediction in 1994. It’s interesting that Major News outlets would even entertain yet another prediction of the World Ending by Camping, and that he continues to cling to Biblical Elite Status. Many site the Bibles Teachings that no Man would know the Hour of Christ’ Resurrection, not even Christ himself. Yet Camping has been heralded as an Authority on Scripture, boldly predicting Events that the Bible Teaches will occur, and in direct contradiction to what the Word of God has otherwise stated. It seems alarming that Millions of so called God Fearing Christians follow this Man. Campings Radio Family Network is valued at over an estimated $100 Million Dollars and seems to depict very clearly the direction of his Spiritual guidance. Why are the masses listening to what Camping has to say? Why are they willing to shell out Millions to support his Teachings? Why does he seem so eager to prepare the World for final destruction? We can ask similar questions regarding the Followers of Jim Jone, David Koresh, Billy Graham, Eddie Long, John Africa, and the list runs on of Religous Bible Toters whom are willing to support Preachers even unto the death. Christians in particular have been long criticized for their seemingly Zombie like allegiance to Churches with sweltering financial resources, their know it all persona or pathetic addiction to the King James Version of the Bible, and their animated display of joy during Church Services that many say mimics feel good side show antics. However, my depiction of some  Christians should not be generalized as an overall perspective of genuine God Fearing People, but Preachers the likes of Camping and his followers certainly adds credence to some areas that distractors have been most critical of the Faith. We must agree that one’s Religion and their monetary contribution to support a Theological Belief is between an individual and their professed Creator. Those of us who Fear God and Believe and Trust in his Word are resolved to dismiss Preacher Camping, it’s just that his predicting a return of Christ on a whim, diminishes the World’s outlook on Christians who say that they truly believe, and cast doubt on the credibility of Preachers who work diligently to honestly Teach the Bible. Whether the Believers who follow Camping condoned his foolishness or not, they are associated with Christian Ideals and they must all share the embarrassment and wear the same Black eye!
