Prophecy: Who Cares? Part 3

Is there anyone who cares about the pathetic predictions of prophecy pundits? There has been a wide range of responses to the latest Harold Camping episode: ridicule, embarrassment, mockery and dismissal. While we all knew that his date setting would be a failure, it still has a certain degree of impact on how Christianity and the Scriptures are viewed by unbelievers.

Most Christians dismissed him as a fringe wacko. He has been marginalized in the minds of most Christians. He has small influence within the Christian community. However, there are those who are a little more subtle in their predictions and flexible date setting, that still have tremendous influence within the broader Christian community that we should be aware of.

The Hal Lindsey's, Tim LaHaye's and Jack Van Impe's of the world have trotted out their endless parade of missed prophetic predictions. This also occurs among Apostolics as well. How wrong do you have to be, and for how long, before people quit taking you seriously?

Don't let the pathetic prophetic destroy your confidence in the Second Coming of Christ!

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Matthew 24:36 KJV
