He can only but repent. But as I understand it he's still got alot of heresy left in him

Man, even previously as a Protestant, I would have said that sort of thing is bad news. Protestants should be all over that "no one knows the day or hour" verse.

Ya, I always thought that for a self-professed Bible Christian, he really isn't doing a good job (not that any Protestant does a good job anyway, but still).

Repenting wasnt his only choice. He could have 'revealed' another date in the distant future. As it is we can be thankful he didnt. To me it sounds hopeful. Just maybe this will cause him to take another look at the rest of his beliefs. There has got to be a book targeted to people like him.

Right. So how do they explain it? Or do they just ignore it?

Good question, my quess is ignore it. I never did understand those folks who did the predictions. Never heard a good way to explain it away either.
