    It's loons like Camping that cause the unbelieving world to think all Christians are kooks. According to the Bible, he should be very worried about God taking him out.

    Actually, what he said was (from your link):

    "Through chatting with a friend over what he acknowledged was a very difficult weekend, it dawned on him that instead of the biblical Rapture in which the faithful would be swept up to the heavens, May 21 had instead been a "spiritual" Judgment Day, which places the entire world under Christ's judgment, he said.
    The globe will be completely destroyed in five months, he said, when the apocalypse comes. But because God's judgment and salvation were completed on Saturday, there's no point in continuing to warn people about it, so his network will now just play Christian music and programs until the final end on Oct. 21.
    "We've always said May 21 was the day, but we didn't understand altogether the spiritual meaning," he said. "The fact is there is only one kind of people who will ascend into heaven ... if God has saved them they're going to be caught up.""

    Yeah, it dawned on him AFTER Saturday came and went. Since nobody was raptured it couldn't be a physical event. It had to be spiritual. Now, I get it.

    Well, at least he "only" missed it by 5 Months...

    JW been "missing" it since 1917, and Jesus had a "spritual" return than also!

    Sounds like every cult.

    Baptist preacher Wm Miller's advent in 1844 didn't occur. But he ended up with tons of $$ and followers and voila the Adventist Cult begins.

    Russel liked the Adventist teaching of Christ's return, but said it was NOT to judge, but an invisible return in 1877 was his forte and Armageddon in 1914 (start of WWI) and thus the foundation of Jehovah's Witness Cult

    It sounds a bit like the Hyper-Preterists. Jesus came in AD70; it's just that nobody saw Him. :laugh:

    So I guess all the judgements that were supposed to come on the earth are also spiritual. Our spiritual water turns to blood... :laugh:

    On October 22, it will be a spiritual end of the world. One excuse fits all.
