The Madness of Harold Camping (The founder of FAMILY RADIO keep setting dates for Christ's return)
Exposing Darkness ^ | July 2009 | Robert Gianserra

2 Peter 3:16 “There are some things in them (the letters of Paul in the NT) that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.”

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Harold Camping is the president and heretic in chief at Family Radio International. For those of you who have the privilege of getting Family Radio broadcast in your area,you probably have mixed feelings. While driving your car, or working on some project, it may be hard to find a station to listen to that is spiritually edifying. Then comes Family Radio. Hymns, Bible reading, prayer, etc. It seems like an oasis of spiritual refreshment in the middle of an airwaves desert. Then comes Harold Camping in a bible study hour. Then his Open Forum. And what do you hear? The world is coming to an end May 21, 2011. According to an advertisement on Family Radio, Harold Camping has figured out the time of the Lord’s coming with “great accuracy” to the day, year, and hour. Sound crazy? It is.

Harold Camping is mad (out of his mind). Not only is he mad, but he a false prophet, and guilty of twisting the word of God. This is nothing new for him either. It all started back in the early 90’s when he believed the world would end in 1994, and made a prediction for the second coming of Jesus. As expected 1994 came and went and Jesus did not return. After being humiliated most people thought he would repent and admit he was wrong. But instead, Harry had a new plan. In his own words, he got, “new information from the bible” revealing to him that what really happened in 1994 was that the church age had come to an end. The corporate church was no longer to exist. The ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper were to cease, pastors to resign, and churches to fold. According to Camping, God had pronounced judgment on the church for infidelity and therefore any true Christian must heed the warning to “flee the church or come under the wrath of God.” All of this is backed up by a hermeneutic that is based on an allegorical interpretation to all of scripture. As a result, Camping can essentially make the bible say what ever he wants. All of his interpretation of scripture now was pointing to the end of the church age. It gets worse.

In the last year or so, Camping has went out on a limb and declared that this time he got it right. Jesus is coming back on May 21, 2011. On that day true Christian will be raptured and everyone else will come under the judgment of Christ for a period of five months, ending on October 21, 2011. Once this one got some traction he went even further. According to more “new information” he is getting from the bible, the doctrine of Hell is a false doctrine. It was devised by man for the purpose of intimidating people. According to Camping, when an unbeliever dies, he will face God on judgment day and then be annihilated (or cease to exist).

Harold Camping has made some audacious and bold claims. While most Evangelicals do not take him seriously, there are enough who do. Sadly Harold Camping has “upset the faith of some”( 2 Tim. 2:18) back in 1994 by misleading people to believe that Christ was returning. He has continued to do this by misleading people to leave the local church which is “The pillar and buttress of truth” 1 Tim. 3:15, and is again misleading people to think the end of the world is coming in 2011.

Consequently I felt led to post a few articles exposing Camping for who he is. He is not a brother, nor a teacher of the word. He is a false teacher and is guilty of misleading many of God’s people. The bible tells us in Matt 18:6 “whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” Today is just an introduction to the madness and insanity of Harold Camping. I do pray and hope that he will repent before he dies as he is an old man. And to be fair he was a sound teacher for many years before he went down this road. Nonetheless he will be accountable to God for twisting scriptures and will face judgment unless he repents.

Ah, Reverend Ike, who blatantly said, “I don’t like the kind of money that makes noise when you put it in the plate.”

God will end the age when he sees fit not when someone claiming to be a prophet says. God works in his own timeline and not the timeline of the supposed prophets.

I think at this point Camping just wants to die and he doesn’t care who he takes with him.

So wait along with Harold Camping these two people Allison and Mike Warden have also recieved special knowledge from God that Jesus is coming back May 21st 2011. Um okay so apparently we have 3 people that don’t adhear to the whole No Man Knows the Day or the Hour of my coming not even the angels in heaven nor the son but only the father rule in the Bible.

It’s interesting that these people who did this interview said that the Bible must have final authority in everything but yet they are predicting Christ’s return. Isn’t there something wrong with that.

Something tells me that neither Camping or the We Can Know people have any special hidden knowledge from God and their making things up.

Also i like how Allison in the interview says that Christian’s should read their bibles. Um Allison what your predicting isn’t in the Bible it is something that is made up so telling them to read their bibles doesn’t help your case.

So what happens if Camping were to die somehow before his predicted Doomsday/Rapture date of May 21st 2011.
