I'm glad you asked, and glad for the ping to get me to respond. I do have some informed input I hope you find helpful.

Here's the brief version: Family Radio is mostly terrific, and you should listen; Harold Camping is a terrible nutcase, and you should avoid him.

In more detail:

Family Radio plays great classic hymns, and sacred concerts, and good edifying Christian programs. They sometimes play really wonderful, Christ-exalting preachers in the "Conference Echoes." I don't personally care for the fellow who reads the Bible so sepulchrally (and pronounces "Israel" as "Izhrel"), but I like that they read the Bible, Bible, Bible. It's a great station.

Harold Camping is a layman with an over-inflated opinion of himself who, rather than being a teacher, is in need of the yoke of discipleship. He may be the first date-setting amillennialist in history. He's extremely idiomatic, lacks the dues-paying and judgment to be a good Bible guide.

If you have a Salem radio station near you (I don't know where Otumwa or whatever is, sorry! < g >), listen for folks like Chuck Swindoll, John MacArthur, J. Vernon McGee, R. C. Sproule, Chuck Colson, J. Montgomery Boyce (if they still play him), and others I could mention.

But I really would encourage you to steer clear of Camping.

LOL..Dan tell us how you really feel *grin*

You were a "little "blunter" than I was..but that man is a really poor representive of the church of Jesus Christ..I used to have him on when I drove home from school...I just couldnt take it..I now listen to cd's..

I had never looked at it as a need for some accountibility...but that sounds right..and whiteteeth that is true for all of us..if you are not in a good church you need to be :>)

Mc Arthur and McGee get my vote too..I also like the Hank Hentargraf (sp)...

Good post. When I was first saved, I went to a very charismatic church. The Lord steered me from that aspect of Christianity, and I started going to a Presbyterian Church (in America), and found Family Radio. Family Radio is a great, conservative radio station with wonderful programs and music.

Unfortunately, it also has Harold Camping! That man did more to get me tangled up in legalism than anything. Of course, I ultimately blame myself for not being more discerning, but I was a new Christian, and he was so authortative and convincing.

My advice would be to enjoy Family Radio, and turn it off whenever Camping comes one.
