A False Prophet Strikes Again

For my first post after Christmas, why not something to raise our blood pressure? It looks like Harold Camping is at it again. Specifically, Harold is once again date-setting for the return of Christ, despite the clear teaching of Scripture that no one will know the date or the hour.

Harold muffed the date back in the 1990s. Edgar Whisenant muffed it back in the 80s. Edgar did the same thing Harold did this time. Edgar predicted in a book "88 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Be in 1988." The day came and went, and Edgar said his mathematics was off a year. Well, 1989 came and went too. Edgar justly lost any credibility and faded away into the woodwork.

Unfortunately, Harold has a broadcast network and people still send him money.
