Harold Camping's End-of-the-World False Prophecy

Harold Camping, in no uncertain terms, predicted that Christ would return on May 21, 2011.  His prediction gained much attention in the secular news media and culture.  Now that Camping's prophecy has proved to be false, what lessons can we learn?  That was the subject of our adult Sunday school class on 5/29/2011.  Here are the notes.

I think Harold Camping's false prophecies give Christians a black eye as those around us who know little about Christianity are further inoculated against the true church. This points us back to the Gospel and how we need to be "in the world" preaching the truth and pointing out the false prophets before (and after) their false prophecies come to pass. When we stand on the truth of the Bible in confidence (Mat. 24:36-51 in this instance) and false prophets come and go perhaps God will soften the hearts of those around us who do not believe the Bible to be God's inerrant and infallible revelation to man. Perhaps people like Harold Camping doing what he does will end up leading others to Christ?
