Rev. Harold Camping became a national joke last year when he predicted that the world would end in May. Usually, when the nation finishes laughing at such people we never hear from them again. In this case, it is hearting to realize that Rev. Camping was humbled by the experience, and that his ministry has changed as a result. Much in the same way that Jim Bakker learned from his own humilation not to judge others, this story wasn’t over when the cameras were turned off. Whether one loves religion or hates it, we should all remember that there are real people underneath such stories as this. The lesson of these stories is not to make the same mistake these religious people made, by writing them off when they try to change.
