Please don’t compare Amill nor Premill believers with the heretical views of such as Harold Camping and his company, which is more as the cults of the JWs and Mormonism while all 3 views of the end-times (Pre, Amill, and Post-Millennialism) are acceptable within the true beliefs of the Christian Church while heretics such as Camping are not. I happen to be an Amillennialist myself but am also a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ whereas Harold Camping has gone off the “deep end” and doesn’t believe in anything or anybody other then himself. I used to be in a similar church that Harold started out in, the Christian Reformed Church, but they were about to kick him out of it when he left anyway (it’s really too bad that I heard that he took some 60 people with him when he left) and it’s been downhill for him since that time he left the church to start his own cultic group. It is kind of ironic that now he doesn’t believe in hell either because if he doesn’t repent and believe in the true gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, then he will most-likely end up there! But, anyway, please don’t confuse us true Reformed Christians (Calvinists) with this heretic because we really believe in the Scriptures as God’s Word while Harold may have started out that way (though this has always been kind of doubtful in my mind), he is best described by John in his first Epistle as one of the many antichrists in this world: “Therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for it they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.” (1 John 2:19 ESV). In other words, Harold and his followers may have at one time been part of the Reformed Christian church, but he went out on his own and showed that in reality, he was and is one of the many antichrists in the world today. But don’t compare all Calvinistic Christians to him ever! Thanks.

This thread's an oldie.
Backtrack. There is no such intent. Sane dispensationalist BibChr commented on my snide tagline ("Dispensationalists say the darndest things!"). My reply (and a clarifying personal email) indicated that I did not include him among the fringe loonies haunting InterWebz conspiracy webboards, poring over the Books of Enoch and Jasher, and seeing recrudescent nephelim under every bush.

I spent a decade and a half in the CRC, and remember it fondly. And, am distressed at what I hear is going on there now.
