Feeling let down that you weren't caught up in the Rapture last Saturday (or that the people on your "Rapture List" weren't)? Have no fear, because according the
According Camp, the Rapture did take place Saturday, but only in the spiritual sense (hmmmm, like many religious scholars say such things (i.e most of Revelations) are intended to be interpreted? I'm just sayin!).
"The whole world is under Judgment Day and it will continue right up until Oct. 21, 2011 and by that time the whole world will be destroyed," said Camping. Not only did he delay the date of Doomsday, Camping did not admit to his mistake about the May 21 date. He claimed that Rapture did happen, but only in a spiritual sense.
"On May 21, this last weekend, this is where the spiritual aspect of it really comes through. God again brought judgment on the world. We didn’t see any difference but God brought Judgment Day to bear upon the whole world."
And what encouraging, empathetic words did Camping have to say to all the would be Raptured? You know, the ones who spent the life savings and quit their jobs and such, including a woman who is pregnant with their second child?
“They should have relied on God and not me,” Camping said. "Family Radio is not in the business of financial advice....They should turn to God and pray."
Damned if you do and damned (to hell) if you don't. Fools like Camping demand total blind obedience from their followers, and when they comply and things don't work out (as they always do with these charismatic types) blame is cast on them. Read the rest of the article here.
