Amills say the darnedest things.
You're not shouting at me, and raving about the nephelim. That's good.
Is this “Family Radio” the shortwave station from Scituate, Massachusetts and Lake Okeechobee, Florida?
They have stations worldwide.
See here :
Yep, that’s the one. WYFR. They and HCJB (”The Voice of the Andes”) in Quito, Ecuador were the two main Fundamentalist Protestant shortwave stations back when I used to listen and collect QSL cards. I think the Internet has now sort of made shortwave obsolete.
Sure, why not...
I don't know anything about this guy but on this particular topic, I can not see where believing Jesus will return on one day as opposed to another will have even the least bit to do with the salvation of that believer...
I mean it's not like this guy is telling people they have a place in heaven because someone dripped some water on them and they ate a cracker named God...
You and me both, friend. You and me both.
(In your deepest rumbling, tumbling, graveliest voice)”. . . and thank you for sharing.”
OK...Sounds like a real wingnut...
the cross then is just a "representation" of what He did in eternity past!
Hmmm. That sounds like....
No one can determine the end of time other than the Lord himself. He knows when and according to the bible, we will know that it is time when it actually gets here. This is repeated a number of times in the New Testament.
He is a rude and obnoxious man who needs to be taken off the air for immoral and outrageous behavior. How could a religious program like this continue to have him on the air. They need to find someone who is morally and ethically correct to take over and make it worth listening to.
The problem with Harold Camping is he is at this point in time, UNTEACHABLE.
Years after his first debacle ( he predicted Christ would return in 1994 and wrote a book about it ), pastors, teachers and elders have all tried to reach out to him to stop this madness. They’ve tried to counsel him, advise him, warn him at first privately, then publicly, to no avail.
One of them is Dr. James White, who actually challenged him to a public debate. You can hear portions of the debate here :
He not only refused to listen, he also continued to add strange doctrines to his teachings, chief among them is that the churches have ALL become apostate and it is useless to attend ANY of them at all.
It’s sad really as his radio station still airs some very good programs ( except his own teachings ). It is one of the very few stations in the country that still plays good old fashion traditional hymns as opposed to the Christian Contemporary Music we hear in a lot of stations.
Man I think he really has gone crazy. I listened to him in 1989-1991 and he was nothing like this. I actually learned stuff from him.
harold campinbg is a senile old fool! i wouldnt beleive him if h said the sun came up in the morning peopel ahve nothing to do with him and do not supporet him
What you say is very true. Here is the confirmation for the scenario you stated very well. Paul to Titus Chpt. 3:8-11
8The saying is sure I desire that you insist on these things, so that those who have come to believe in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works; these things are excellent and profitable to everyone. 9But avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. 10After a first and second admonition, have nothing more to do with anyone who causes divisions, 11 since you know that such a person is perverted and sinful, being self-condemned.
I wonder what will become of his ministry when May 21,2011 ( the exact date he predicts Christ will return ) comes and goes away and nothing happens.
Will the true believers in his ministry still stay ?
I bet he will have a large falling away except for the weirdos and extremely deluded malcontents.
Also someone needs to share with old Howold II Peter 2 where St. Peter takes to task false teachers where old Howold is because he knows what the true gospel message is and has departed from the faith into cultism.
I heard Harold again yesterday afternoon.
He’s convinced the Rapture will occur 21May, but this time he simply leaves off the year. In his mind everybody will only be thinking about death and misery after 21 May.
I think he is on the wrong track, but it would be interesting to see his take on verses such as nobody shall know the day or the hour.
