You get it all here on My Journey and while I frankly don't have a horse in this race, Harold Camping has not explained himself yet (link).
Reverend Harold Camping of Camping's Family Radio International Ministry
Yes, Rev. Camping's pasty face might be a bit red around the gills for his missed prediction, but how would you like to be Robert Fitzpatrick, a New York resident who put his money where his faith is. According to ABC News, The 60-year-old retiree spent $140,000 -- almost everything he had -- on hundreds of billboards proclaiming the Armagedon that Camping predicted.
Apparently Camping put a lot of billboard and radio ads out proclaiming that Jesus Christ would return yesterday and wipe out all of the sinners, while holding his own to his bosom.
(ABC News) Camping's wife described him as being "somewhat bewildered" and "mystified" that events did not unfold on May 21 as Camping had predicted, Evans said Evans said his personal position is that the public is owed an apology and he wants the board -- and Camping -- to meet on Tuesday to figure out what to say and do next.
Camping, 89, had pinpointed May 21, at 5:59 p.m. as the exact time the Rapture would occur, when those chosen by God would ascend to heaven while cataclysmic earthquakes would begin to rock earth. He spread the word on billboards, posters, fliers and digital bus displays across the country.
I'm always bothered when people of faith delight in the concept of PUNISHMENT for others. They live for the end of the world when everyone (it seems) but they and their closest associates are burned, squashed in earthquakes, torn limb-from-limb in tornadoes, or drowned in tsunamis. They find joy and rejoicing in the I-told-you-so superiority of the bigoted righteous.
A lot of people make a lot of money on fear-based faith. My reading of the Bible and other religious teachings indicates that "LOVE" was the doctrine of God. I must be missing something.
