And I do not mean that in any way that can misconstrued as a compliment. He has broken his silence after his failed prediction of the end of the world on May 21st. What does he say? Basically what I said he would when I wrote:
The problem is, he will resort to his old tactics of spiritualizing what was to take place on Saturday. Once again, many will be duped.
I wrote that back on May 20th. This is Camping’s pattern. Make a prediction that the world will definitely end on a certain date at a certain time. Then when it doesn’t occur, spiritualize the event saying that only the faithful can fully understand what took place. He will then go on to say that we should only follow teachers that understand these deep
truths lies. While he knows of no other teachers than himself that teach these truths lies, he is at least open that there could be someone like him.
Here is the latest from Camping:
Camping offered no sincere apology when he spoke publicly Monday for the first time since his failed May 21 Judgment Day prediction. He insisted that his predictions have been right all along, only that his interpretation was more literal when it should have been spiritual.
Judgment Day on May 21 did come, said Camping. However, he clarified that the Judgment Day arrived in a spiritual sense rather than manifesting physically.
“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. 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,” he proclaimed. (Emphasis added).
Please, if you are follower of Camping, quit now! Follow Christ and the Bible instead. Also please note: I am far more accurate in my predictions about how Camping will respond when he is wrong than he is in the return of Christ, arrival of Judgment Day, end of the world, the rapture, etc.

But he who heeds counsel is wise.
