We have just witnessed a two-prong attack through the media. On May 14 Israel celebrated her 63 anniversary as a nation. Days after, the president gave them a surprise by asking them to go back to their 1967 borders (with a few adjustments). This has reversed our policy we had with Israel; certainly the word betrayal would be apropos.
A few days after this the news was abuzz about a proven false prophet that they used to represent the Christian church. Harold Camping of Family Radio had predicted a rapture and judgment on May 21, and kept his record consistent – nothing happen. Camping went from dumb in 1994 to dumber 2011. Camping had published the book, “1994?” and a sequel, “Are You Ready?” More than 80,000 copies of the two books are in print which stand as proof of him being a false prophet (see: Oops I did it again & The Pride of a false prophet ).
Camping considers himself a reformed amillennialist, but he promotes himself as a premillenialist. Family Radio is heard in more than 30 languages through international affiliates. In 2009, the nonprofit org. reported in its IRS filings that it received $18.3 million in donations, and had assets of more than $104 million, including $34 million in stocks or other publicly traded securities. Family Radio has spent millions of dollars, some from donations of followers on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 RV’s with their May 21, 2011 Judgment Day message.
One man personally spent $140,000 of his life savings on billboards in the Boston area. Will anyone see their money refunded by Family Radio for following the false advertisement of Camping’s calculation? Can he sue camping for false advertising and manipulation? If he had been taught the Bible in truth he would not have listened to the cultist Camping. He and others would not have entertained a date because the Bible has this much to say on the date______. NOTHING!
“The day after” The Oakland, California, headquarters of the network of 66 U.S. stations hung a sign in the door that read: “This Office is Closed. Sorry we missed you!” Maybe it should say we are sorry we missed the prediction!
Those who have contributed to – participated with the programming of Family Radio should be marked as associates of this inane, inept, juvenile old man who has promoted his mathematical delusions. This is why we stress sound Bible doctrine being taught from the pulpits. Essentially all false prophecies bring reproach to Christ and the church. However, this is more dangerous than when Kenneth Copeland says at a christening of a new church that a billion Muslims will be saved in the coming months and it fails. Click here to continue reading.
