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...
The man also holds a lot of strange beliefs.
Camping teaches that the work of the church is finished, and that those who remain in the church, during the time of the on-coming tribulation, will be destroyed. He thus bids the faithful to flee the church. He goes so far as to suggest that if one were to find a church where it appears that each and every doctrine they hold is faithful to the Word of God, it should be avoided if one hopes to escape the impending destruction.
Harold Camping teaches that the Holy Spirit is NO LONGER working in the church!
Harold Camping teaches that EVERY church in the world is apostate!
So, do you go to church ? If you do, according to Camping, you won't escape the impending destruction.
Camping also teaches that there will be no eternal damnation of the unsaved but they will simply be annihilated. Camping also teaches that Jesus, as the Christ, died before the foundation of the earth, and then BECAME the Son of God upon His resurrection: the cross then is just a "representation" of what He did in eternity past!
The cross does not pay for sin, as that was done prior to the Incarnation! This incredibly absurd belief, which overthrows every possible part of the Bible's teaching on the cross, the incarnation, atonement, etc., is just another example of the fact that once you are cut loose from the foundation of Scripture, there is no end of the silliness you can end up promoting.
OK...Sounds like a real wingnut...
