Questions about the Harold Camping story
Jul 15, 2011
On 7/14 I posted an article about Vietnamese Christians being killed after believing Harold Camping's prophecy of the Rapture that was supposed to come May 21, 2011. This account apparently originated with James Jacob Prasch of Moriel Ministries:
This was also reported on MSNBC on May 18, 2011:
"In Vietnam, the prophecy has led to unrest involving thousands of members of the Hmong ethnic minority who gathered near the border with Laos earlier this month to await the May 21 event. The government, which has a long history of mistrust with ethnic hilltribe groups like the Hmong, arrested an unidentified number of "extremists" and dispersed a crowd of about 5,000."
Some have checked this out and have contacted me to say that the story is not true. I tried to check out the links that they provided, but was unable to connect to them. I just got a "Navigation error." If anyone can find solid proof one way or the other, please let me know. I'm not out to bash anyone, not even Camping, though I do not share his views on the Rapture.
