This is a site that tracks how Harold Camping’s prediction of the Rapture did not come true. If you know where to look closely, you can find me.
It’s not surprising that the Rapture did not happen, because the Bible never teaches the Rapture. Camping’s predictions are cooked up out of his own head and a superficial and misleading reading of the Scriptures. It’s tragic when people don’t know what the Bible actually says, so they can protect themselves from false teachers like Camping, well-meaning or sincere as they may be. The really tragic thing is that out of this, some Christians will lose their faith and will turn their backs on everything the Bible says, just because of one man’s very public lies.
To the scoffers I say don’t scoff too loudly — Judgment Day is still coming, and even though there is no such thing as the Rapture, you will still be held accountable for your thoughts, words, and actions before God. “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (2 pe 3.3-7 kjv) Do not ridicule what you do not know. Confess your sins and find forgiveness in Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God sacrificed for your sins as well as mine. “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.” (john 14.6) Hopefully we can all learn something from this Rapture nonsense, and perhaps a few more people will be led to dig into the Scriptures for themselves and learn the truth.
