"US Preacher Resets Doomsday After Failed Rapture"
The end of the world is still coming, just a little later than originally planned, said a US radio minister after his prediction that Judgment Day would come last weekend flopped.Do not think it is an accident this has gotten a lot of media coverage! This guy is just one name among the date-setter set. On the social websites this was one of the top topics. Web wide and in day to day life, it has been disturbing to watch how this has brought forth more scoffing for bible prophecy. I find myself thinking that these hucksters have come forth with more then just profit as a motive, but to add to the deceit out there.
"We are not changing a date at all; we're just learning that we have to be a little more spiritual about this," Harold Camping, the 89-year-old founder of the global evangelizing Family Radio network said in a 90-minute radio broadcast late Monday.
"But on October 21, the world will be destroyed. It won't be five months of destruction. It will come at once," he said.
The more people hear these date setters, the more they are led closer to denying ALL of BIBLE PROPHECY, wrongly thinking this man is getting his message right from the Bible. In fact, non-Christians often will point to something like this and say "See all the end times stuff is a bunch of nonsense why should we listen to any of you Christians talking about the end of the world, or the one world religion, or government, the antichrist or Jesus Christ's eventual return? Look at all the dates that have piled up, it's never going to happen." So there comes more unbelief, and more rejection of God's Word and Jesus Christ via a hireling.
It leads people to ask, "Where is the promise of his coming"? in the fulfilment of 2 Peter 3:5.
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Now Camping has reset the date, though I doubt this time it will bring as much attention, the damage has already been done.
