Okay, this is a true story, I know I joke around a lot but this is true.
When I first moved to Seattle (I know longer live there but did for a long time) I was searching for what radio station I would listen to (wasn’t a Christian at the time) when I came upon an AM station with a deep voiced pastor preaching, I was astounded because I did not know the gospel of grace (was raised catholic but didn’t know Christ) and I listened and listened day after day. I finally came home one day and told my wife all about it, she was shocked, we both eventually came to Christ. His preaching was scary, I will admit that, I was so afraid because at the time I knew I wasn’t saved, he was sure the world was going to end on a certain day and as I listed I thought for sure he was right. Well, that day came and went, the world never ended, however, I came to Christ and have been a Christian ever since.
That pastor was Harold Camping, strange but true, I was lead to Christ by a man praching the end of the world, he was wrong on that, but right on what brings Salvation. If I didn’t have to type this all in I could say more, there’s so much more to the story.
Too bad Gene Scott isn't still around. He was always on TV going on about something, and many times in some kind of costume.
Now that he’s unmasked himself as a fraud, if anyone needs any more reason not to listen to what he says, I don’t know what that would be.
I am certain he should be avoided. Anyone who puts a date on Christ’s return like this has just proven they are not to be listened to.
Harold Camping has made a number of predictions as to when the world will end and Jesus’ second coming. If I remember correctly there was a time in 1994 that this was to occur. I hope after 2011, he will understand he cannot comprehend what the Lord God Almighty knows and plans.
“Can you educate us as to where in the Bible it says so ?”
A careful study of the old Jewish wedding ceremony will get you started. I wouldnt have the space here to do it justice.
Pretty good jibber jabber here.
I will tell you though, he only squared (atonement x completeness x heaven). There’s his problem.
There are three heavens. There are also three heads in the Godhead. There are three steps in man’s journey back to God: Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification. You are born, you live, you die. We are beings that have length, width and height.
All this evidence shows he should have cubed (atonement x completeness x heaven), not squared it.
Oh yeah, - SARC. The guy is a total nutjob.
I was just disguising my opinion some. It’s the best analysis if you look at the evidence...
This nut job’s 15 minutes were over decades ago. Hope that when his failed prophecy is revealed, people will dump him once and for all.
“Christian radio host Harold Camping says Jesus is coming back in nine months: May 21, 2011. Then the world will end, according to his calculations, on October 21, 2011.”
Wow, when was the temple in Jerusalem rebuilt? Those muslims sure seemed to take the removal of the “dome of the rock” in stride.
wait a minute....
Nah, those started weeks ago.
Gee, I was raised on exactly that and I think this guy is a moron for date-setting ...
You couldn’t be more wrong in your opinion.
Well, you know, it’s so...cryptic.
Praise God ... He can even use false prophets and teachers to execute His will.
No one but God knows when the Second Coming of Christ will be.
I know you don’t believe in date-setting, nor do those at the “dispensationalist” schools...and that’s precisely why none have ever set a date, like Camping.
But, most assuredly, if there were no Biblical admonition that “no one knows the hour”, Scofield, Ironside, Walvoord, LaHaye, DeHaan, Lindsey, maybe even Moody himself, would have been scrambling to fix a date.
In fact, some of those early “dispos” did set a date and were discredited.
But can you believe Scofield went through all that intricate date-setting without being tempted to at least guess???? It is to his credit that he didn’t do it.
However, if you were around in 1948, believe me, there were plenty of Moody/Dallas type people who were itching to name a time.
Well in Camping’s case as i pointed out in another thread he claims that rule only applies to the people in the Church and not to people not in the Church that read the Bible. Apparently i missed that verse in the Bible.
Hey guys check ot this video.
I rhink the link is correct if not someone can fix it for me.
