Harold Camping’s Doomsday predictions made me angry. And rightly so. This man seriously harms people in the name of God, insisting that the Bible says something it does not say. But anger can bring up other issues. Sometimes we can be right, but still wrong.
As anger tends to do, my anger overflowed. It spilled first to Camping himself, then onto other false prophets and cult leaders. Then onto all those who use the Bible to treat others badly. Then all hypocrites in the church. Those awful hypocrites. Look at how prideful and unkind they are. I want nothing to do with them. I’m better than that.
And, just that quickly, I became guilty of the same sins I detest.
“If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.” (1 Corinthians 13:2)
Without love, I am nothing. God help me.
