So Harold Camping's predicted day of judgement has come and gone and we are still here. Nothing happened expect the let down for the Camping followers. So now what do all the Camping followers do now? Better yet how do we as Born Again bible believing Christians handle this and use this opportunity to glorify Christ?
Bible reading and believing Christians knew from the start that Camping was wrong and that his date setting would be a big fail and an opportunity for the media to poke fun at us "crazy Christians". We as Christians need to be proactive with this issues and use it to our advantage to disprove false Christianity and promote biblical Christianity to a world that is confused and lost.
While many are out poking fun at Camping and his followers and the media is out having a field day with this let us remember that there are real people who have been really mislead and hurt by this man and his teachings. We need to has bible believing Christians offer some compassion to those who have been hurt by this man. We need to teach those who are willing to listen the truth and show them the forgiveness of Christ.
I believe that many of these people may very well be saved brothers and sisters in the Lord. Yes, they where mislead but who here is so foolish to think that not one of us ever in our life time have been mislead or lead astray somewhere in our belief and by the glory of God He has corrected us and allowed a person to show us that correction in loving compassionate way.
I believe as well that some of his followers are not saved and need to hear the true Gospel not the gospel according to Camping. Remember the worst thing we can do is nothing. What I fear will happen is that many of his followers will be turned off to Christ and Christianity now because of Camping and all the fuss over his date setting. We must also remember that their are some that will continue to follow Camping to the end. These people I believe have received a judgement from God of a harden heart to the true Gospel and we must pray for their hearts to be softened to the truth. So really in the end as true Christians we came to conclusion about Camping long before May 21, 2011 that he was a fraud and his followers where mislead. So now God has laid an opportunity before each one of us to show someone the love of Christ that may have been affected by Camping or his followers. Let the really Gospel and love of Christ go forth and be shown to people not what the media has label this as "crazy Christians" . Lets show them biblical Christianity at its best.
