Stetzer ought to join Camping in repenting. In Stetzer’s case it ought to be for smuggling “Emergent Church” theology into the SBC.
It doesn’t take a lot of courage to wait around until after the Rapture didn’t happen, and then attack Camping. Maybe he should have spoken out earlier.
If I was Camping, I’d tell them that I’ll apologize after Algore apologizes first. The only difference between the two is that Algore makes a hell of a lot more money with his “end of the world” fearmongering.
He’s gotta repent, says this Revvie, because I have my own perdiction!
Someone needs to do some digging and see if Cult Leader Harold Camping is a Democrat like Cult Leader Fred Phelps. If so, it would be proof that he did this to undermine the true Church.
Why would anyone want an apology from a lunatic?
Esther said some of her co-workers who believe in Campings prediction had bought expensive cars
So, one of the final acts of some were to essentially steal from their fellow man?
If the Rapture had happened, somebody would have had some explaining to do.
Repent because he got the date wrong, wrong in the fact that “like a thief in the night” rarely has a published schedule, or wrong by being ingrained is such hubris that he knows more than God himself?
Only the Father knows the day and the hour. Anybody who claims to know when this is going to happen, is misleading folks.
Maybe we are just in overtime!
Is everyone still here? Well, what do you know! We all could have told you that!
BTW, this book was written in 1881; you wouldn't believe how accurate it is!
In the late nineteenth century, Father Charles Arminjon, a priest from the mountains of southeastern France, assembled his flock in the town cathedral to preach a series of conferences to help them turn their thoughts away from this lifes mean material affairsand toward the next lifes glorious spiritual reward. His wise and uncompromising words deepened in them the spirit of recollection that all Christians must have: the abiding conviction that heavenly aims, not temporal enthusiasms, must guide everything we think, say, and do.
When Father Arminjons conferences were later published in a book, many others were able to reap the same benefitincluding fourteen-year-old Thérèse Martin, then on the cusp of entering the Carmelite convent in Lisieux. Reading it, she says, plunged my soul into a happiness not of this earth. Young Thérèse, filled with a sense of what God reserves for those who love him, and seeing that the eternal rewards had no proportion to the light sacrifices of life, copied out numerous passages and memorized them, repeating unceasingly the words of love burning in my heart.
Now the very book that so inspired the Little Flower is available for the first time in English.
Let the pages of The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life fill you with the same burning words of love, with the same ardent desire to know God above all created things, that St. Thérèse gained from them. Let them also enrich your understanding of certain teachings of the Faith that can often seem so mysterious, even frightening:
Jesus commands us to be ever-watchful for his return, and ever-mindful that we have no lasting city on earth. The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life is an invaluable aid to inculcating in your spirit that heavenly orientation, without which true human happiness cannot be foundin this world or the next.
Family Radio is really a very traditional evangelical station. It always had nice music and I enjoyed it.
When Camping started this nonsense many years ago I seem to remember many at the station being quite upset with it. It must be really hard working there knowing the boss is going nuts.
Another Camping follower, 27-year-old Adrienne Martinez, was planning to go to medical school but decided not to after listening to Family Radio.
I, for one, am glad that Camping "saved" me from the chance of being seen by "Dr. Martinez".
