When noted heretic Harold Camping led untold thousands into a fear-rooted frenzy with his ‘guarantee’ that the day of judgment was coming on May 21, 2011 he did the world a favor. He gave a date. A specific time that we could get to and get past. We can then look at some as simple as our calendar and say, he was wrong. Over and done. Move on, nothing to see here! He will now officially join the long list of others who have either birthed false religions (the Jehovah’s Witnesses for example) or lost all credibility. He has cost his followers their confidence in God, their money, their family relationships, and their reputations. In so doing he has been exposed for the huckster that he is to any reasonable person. Other false teachings are sadly more nebulous to many. The damage that they do to souls and to churches sometimes take decades to see. The denial of the Lordship of Christ, the subtle attacks on the sufficiency of scripture, the wedding of the Church with the world will not garner headlines and their leadership will not be so easily dismissed by discerning multitudes. But the time of their exposure will come and sadly it will be after the damage has long been done.
