Doomsday Prediction Failure shouldn't be an object of scorn

Proverbs 24:17
Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice (NIV)

Many people are in pain and suffering, because they don't know the Bible clearly.  They long to know God.  May we as Christians following the teachings of Jesus not criticize the failure of Harold Camping and his followers, but instead, have the heart of praying for them.  The failure of man is not the failure of God.  When sheep had gone astray, God does not abandon, but with his unchanging mercy, His wide heart embraces, and leads us towards repentance.
