Dr. James White had this to say in response to Harold Camping’s public statements on his failed prophecy
05/23/2011 – James White
When someone has been given over for decades to false teaching and arrogant spiritual dictatorship over others, well…we shouldn’t be surprised at what is happening as I type these words. I am listening live to Camping’s rambling press conference. I cannot possibly express my deep disgust at this man’s willingness to continue to drag the Christian faith and the Holy Bible through the mud. He is utterly unrepentant, and now is adding to his condemnation blatant lies. He just told the gathered press that no church today believes that every word of the Bible comes from God. Of course, it is Camping who thinks the words of the Bible are theological play-dough, all there to serve his whims and his next false prophecy. But, will the press differentiate? Will they speak to responsible Christian scholars, believing scholars? No, Camping is truly a plague upon us, not only here in the United States, but all around the world. God have mercy upon us.
“We had all of our dates correct. We had all our proofs correct.” “May 21 was a spiritual coming…He has come, in the sense that He now has the world under judgment.” Well, I pretty well called that one, sadly. I had a feeling we would be stuck with this foolishness until October 21, 2011. What an amazingly foolish thing: “Well, folks, we only have 153 days to go, but, hey, we aren’t going to put up billboards and stuff, we are going to play music and do teaching about how to live as a good Christian.” Brilliant. I can’t wait to see the video of this.
Now Camping is lying about Greek verbs. I cannot possibly imagine what the press is going to do with this.
Well, folks, I don’t know what else to say. The man is an inveterate heretic, unrepentant, and we call all of his followers to repent and abandon this man’s wild delusions.
