“…camping out…”

C’mon…did you really think I could NOT say something about this…I mean, after all, if you’re still here reading this, obviously something didn’t go quite as expected…

And…for those few who may not know what I am referring to, this past May 21st, Family Radio’s Harold Camping ‘suggested’ that we would be ‘raptured’…

Not actually ‘suggested…more like ‘insisted’…

And by ‘we’, I mean all Christians who are headed to that big blue yonder with the Father…the rest would stay down here in a miserable hellish world until Oct.21st…then…no more…

Now, the fact that Camping made these claims is not unusual…many have made them before, including Camping himself…

What is interesting is how many people believed him this time around, selling their possessions, quitting their jobs, and just waiting for that final ‘beam up’…

It’s sad really, how many claim that it was their ‘faith in God’ that led them to believe…

If they had as much ‘faith in His word’, they would have known that no one is really gonna know the time and day…

But what about now…

Many are left disillusioned, depressed, and generally confused…

I simply think it was a case of the thought of Heaven far outweighing the thought of life as we currently know it…

Sadly, that says so much…
