In 2009, the nonprofit reported in tax filings that it received USD 18.3 million in donations, and had assets of more than USD 104 million, including USD 34 million in stocks or other publicly traded securities.

Perhaps they have a different definition of 'non-profit' than I...

Another wolf in the flock! How many will now turn against Christ because of this terrible man?

What part of Matthew 24:36 was so difficult for this blasphemer to comprehend?

I pray that this man sincerely asks for forgiveness from Jesus, and that those he led astray can find the truth for themselves.

One last thought about this.

No one knew Scripture like Jesus Christ. As the Word He inspired and shaped it. Yet even He did not see the date of His return hidden within it. Unless you think he lied when He said:

"“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

So who does a human being think he is trying to go over Jesus' head to sneak a peek.

“I’m flabbergasted, I tell you!” as he headed for the bank, counting his money.

It made Christianity look very foolish when his goofy notion went viral.

Camping was at his Oakland home "somewhat bewildered" and "mystified" that the rapture did not happen

... but did he repent?

I understand Camping has a degree in engineering which is not a bachelor of arts type fake college degree. Which proves my point: being smart in one thing does not make you smart in an unrelated field. In Camping’s case end of the world forecasting.

Rosh Ha Shana is; the day and hour that no man knows. It is an idiom just like we use the phrase “turkey day”. I went to Campings web site, one of his biggest mistakes is he didn’t understand that G-d is jewish and teaches using jewish concepts. does anyone else on this blog know why RHS is know to be “the day that no man knows”?

The rapture was supposed to be on the 21st of May. The world is supposed to end on 21 October.

I am currently reading this book. A much different story than Camping's

BTW, this book was written in 1881; you wouldn't believe how accurate it is!

The End of the Present World
 
Reading this book was one of the greatest graces of my life!"
— St. Thérèse of Lisieux

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 life’s mean material affairs—and toward the next life’s 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 Arminjon’s conferences were later published in a book, many others were able to reap the same benefit—including 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:

  • The signs that will precede the world’s end
  • The coming of the Antichrist, and how to recognize him
  • The Judgment and where it may send us: heaven, hell, and purgatory
  • Biblical end-times prophecy: how to read it and not be deceived

    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 found—in this world or the next.
