Mike Randolph, 17, joins his fellow members of the Calvary Bible Church in Milpitas, as they hold signs outside the headquarters of Family Radio in Oakland on Saturday.
(05-21) Oakland -- We're still here.

Followers of an Oakland radio minister who predicted that Saturday would mark the start of the world's last days waited in vain for a religious homecoming that never happened. (Full Article)



Tongue Gotta love the play on words in the article title. "believers downcast". Muahahaha
Camping hasn't updated his website. Maybe he's hoping people will think he was Raptured. [Image: DEODy.gif] Not that that would be a bad thing. No more Camping Campaigns in the future then.

What, the rapture didn't happen yesterday? Could've sworn it did...

Camping's followers just are having a tough time coming to grip that they weren't selected for the Jesus air show...

The unfortunate truth was that as most Christians thought, not every sect of Christianity was selected. The rapture did happen, but only to those who successfully unlocked the mystery. Believing in Jesus incorrectly is worse than not believing in him =p

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

I get a kick out of all my Christian friends that say Mr. Camping is crazy and his prediction was lame. The insinuation is that they don't have a crazy belief system. I try to explain that they believe pretty much 99% of the same crap he does, only they choose to wait until they die for the grand prize. this way no one gets to laugh at them when there wrong.

I've never heard that before. I know that the Rapture is suppose to rise up the "saints" in Christ. I.E. The true believers. Who will then return with Christ after the 7 years of Tribulation that follow the Rapture, and rule with Christ over the earth for 1000 years.

John 10:28 and John 6:40 & 44 , are thought to declare eternal life and inclusion in the Rapture for all that hold faith in Jesus.

What verses are you referring to?

I'm more quoting apologetics, in the idea that Christianity is only truly attained through a proper reading of the scripture and that the general Christian public is deceived in the way they believe. My statement was about the fact that many Protestants will look down at Catholics et all. The different sects do tend to devalue each other. More a hit on their views in day to day life being carried over to the rapture.

Now i'm curious, what's supposed to happen after 1000 years of heave on earth? Does he just leave again and say, i'll be back in X number of years with the same rules from before? Does nothing change? Do people then have a better idea of what to do? lol

Pretty much. Just as many Fundy's will argue in defense of their beliefs using circular logic,so too is the pending post-Ratpure events circular. Only Satan is on earth then, as in present in the sorta flesh.

Matthew 25:32-46 Describes the 1000 year reign of Christ, after the Tribulation of 7 years.
And then, Satan get's his turn again to make things the same again. Revelation 20:7-10
Because now that the earth is populated by only the saints, the true believers of Christ who proved themselves more than a millennium ago, once again they are then challenged with a choice. To follow Jesus or to succumb to his antithesis, Satan. Because those who are new in Christ, as if there's going to be childbirth among the Saints during those 1000 years, the newborns grew up never knowing anything but Christ. Makes one wonder if they're born sinners too. But in any event, they get to make a choice again, and can either remain in Christ's grace or succumb to the Satan god not only let live when he first rebelled in Heaven, which makes Adam and Eve's one unforgivable mistake pale in affront to god comparisons, and god let's him live so as to tempt his creation away from god rather than serve as emissary between the two which is what caused Satan to refuse and then rebel, but after being chained he was let lose to now tempt those who were blessed by Jesus to rule on earth for the millennium. All of course orchestrated in the OT.Deuteronomy 30:19

What a whacked story line. God can't forgive Adam and Eve for being ignorant and succumbing to the temptation he set up and knew they would succumb to, so he damns the rest of the humans he let's be born to sin, unless they find him in Jesus form and ask to be forgiven for being born sinners by his will. And yet for some reason he's impotent when it comes to getting rid of the adversary, Satan, that makes that whole dynamic possible.
Bad story line, created by writers with extraordinarily limited imaginations.

And to think, innumerable people have martyred themselves to it.
Those are the dumb apes, Darwin's evolution must have been talking about. Wink You know, survival of the fittest.
