What Camping Missed

In all has searching of the Bible for numbers, codes and calculations of dates, Harold Camping seems to have missed something very important. In fact, he missed the center of the Bible's message - He's missed Jesus!

From Cranach: The Blog of Veith:
"...it is what a certain Mr. Harold Camping missed this weekend. I’m certain that you’ve heard of him. The media has paid an unusual amount of attention to him and his prediction that the end of the world was going to begin yesterday. I don’t want to go into the details of all that he said. But you know what he missed? Christ. Not that he’s not a Christian. I’m not saying that. I don’t know what’s in his heart. But in all his study of the Bible, he looked for numbers and clues and codes and all sorts of things . . . but he missed Christ. And that’s what the Scriptures are all about. They’re not about hidden clues, secret teachings, mysterious numbers, and being able to calculate days and times. They’re all about Jesus. About his death and resurrection. That dying and rising with Jesus is the truth, and the way to eternal life."

That's something important for all of us to remember:  If your thought and message are centered on anything other than Jesus, you've missed the point.
