Former Family Radio affiliate station calls Harold Camping a false prophet.

Hudson Valley’s WFSO, Olivebridge NY issues “a humble appeal to followers of Harold Camping” and says something startling – “Now is the time to repent and turn to Christ.” No doubt Camping (who’s not a minister) would find that strange, since he believes he’s helped save many people around the world. But the failure of Camping’s May 21 end-of-the-world prophecy, in the eyes of WFSO, means it’s time to talk plainly.

It says “From now on, do not lend your ears to anything from Harold Camping” – and Redeemer Broadcasting Network claims that perhaps 80% to 90% of Family Radio’s own employees disagree with their boss. The Christian Post reports this story, and says Redeemer split with Family Radio in 2002 when Camping told listeners to quit attending and supporting their local churches.

From the Christian post article, linked above: >>"There is hope and forgiveness," Reedemer Broadcasting Network, which owns WFSO in Olivebridge, N.Y., told followers of Camping. The May 25-dated letter was addressed to those who were "deeply affected by this false date," noting that some have sold their possessions, run into trouble with their marriage because they were a Camping follower, or killed their pets. >>"From now on, do not lend your ears to anything from Harold Camping." (snip) Redeemer Broadcasting said his predications are a lie.

"The latest assertion coming out of Oakland via Mr. Camping as of May 23rd, is that there is no possibility of being saved anymore. That's right, Harold Camping has on his own accord, CANCELLED the Great Commission and there is to be no evangelical outreach. This is obviously a lie from the pit of Hell itself," responded the radio ministry.

"May 21, 2011 was NOT judgment day. Salvation IS still possible. There were no massive earthquakes, the graves did not open, and it was pretty much like every other day. Except for one aspect: some people's life savings were now ruined, some families were broken apart, and more people left their churches. "

WFSO started out as a Family Radio affiliate in 1996 but after Camping made a statement in 2002 urging listeners to abandon their local churches, the station made the move to disassociate with the Oakland, Calif.-based Family Radio. Camping is president of Family Radio and his teachings are regularly broadcast on the network.

On its website, Redeemer Broadcasting also addressed Family Radio employees, many of whom don't believe in Camping's teachings, and urged them to seek employment elsewhere.

According to Redeemer, over 80-90 percent of staff at Family Radio disagree with Camping.

"We know many of you personally, and empathize with you. You have been forced to produce programming for a man who no longer walks in the precepts of the Historic Christian faith. You are terribly frustrated, your hands are tied, and there is little to do but wait it out. There is a light at the end of the tunnel – please call us, and we can provide some encouragement."

I wish more Pastors and churches would come out and say the same thing.

Too many of them have this knee-jerk protective reaction if anyone who calls themselves a Christian is criticized.
