  • The End of the World According to Harold Camping (Part 2)

    from W. Robert Godfrey Apr 20, 2011 Category: Articles

    Camping’s reading of the Bible led him to a curiously self-contradictory method which is at some times excessively literal and at other times wildly allegorical. As an engineer he has had a particular interest in the numbers in the Bible. It is this interest that has led him to reach conclusions about the date of the end of the world. His first date was 1994 and he wrote a book showing the method by which he reached this date and to show how certain it was.

He mentioned, almost in passing, this notion that rocked my world. 'Some scholars,' he said (and by the way he said it I had a strong suspicion that he was one of those scholars), 'believe that the ‘man’ Joshua met outside the wall of Jericho was a pre-incarnate manifestation of the second person of the Trinity, a christophany.'"

    If you were to drive the freeways of southern California, you would see from time to time billboards proclaiming the Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 and declaring that the Bible guarantees it. Presumably these billboards may be seen in many other parts of the country as well. Who is responsible for these signs and what do they really mean theologically? Keep Reading
