End May Be Near For Oakland’s Family Radio?

Judgment day may finally be at hand for a California evangelical radio network used by a preacher to predict—incorrectly—the apocalypse.

Oakland-based Family Radio has sold its three largest radio stations, and tax records show the nonprofit network saw its net assets drop to $29.2 million by the end of 2011, from a net worth of $135 million four years earlier.

The radio network is run by Harold Camping, who predicted the world would end on May 21, 2011, only to later concede he had no evidence of an impending apocalypse. The network spent millions of dollars—some of it from donations made by followers—putting up thousands of billboards plastered with the Judgment Day message. ...

Perhaps, Susan, I should have remembered another old adage, "Act in haste, repent in leisure!" First of all, you should listen to a sermon such as Principles of Bible Interpretation and apply those principles as you read your Bible. While there is one thing all Christians agree upon, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF), we really don't trounce Lutheranism as hard, For one reason read the Don Goertzen comments about Luther in Martin Luther--Diet of Worms. It appears this pdf file not only covers that but other topics as well, plus has a nifty chart or two in it!

Christians owe a lot to Luther, and a lot their theology is right on, e.g., Interpretation. But, one can only wish the Conservative Lutherans, would remove their sacrament of baptism, reject Consubstantiation, and have complete rejection of bigotry, q.v., Martin Luther Revisited.

Ah, Susan, sometimes old adages are true? "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Unfortunately while many of us like Lutherans, we do have trouble with Martin Luther's Sacramental Gospel. We wish the conservative Lutherans could get away from that!

But Camping made his bundle from the wool he fleeced from many sheep.

I used to listen to Family Radio on shortwave years ago and Harold Camping was predicting that the end of the world was going to be in 1994. He said back then the Bible says "No man knows the day or the hour" but it doesn't say the month or the year. I was starting to get mixed up by his teachings and wrote a letter to Pastor Norheim, formerly of the Lutheran Gospel Hour. He replied, "Stop listening to them. They are mixed up."

I feel sorry for all those people that were duped and spent money on this false prophet, which brought the Bible into disrepute. Many of them came on here, propagating their false message, and trying to convince believers of the non-eternal nature of God's Son. I can only imagine how they must feel now - disappointed, deceived, revealed to be gullible, in religious limbo-land, not knowing where to go now or who to trust.

Well, there were many people on these forums who tried to help at the time, with an offer to come back and discuss things when it all fizzled out and came to naught, and that offer still stands I am sure.

As for the Family Radio Network, it would not surprise me if it was bailed out by some bizarre charismatic group, so that they can further their own ridiculous message.

Whatever happened to real people getting onto real streets and preaching the real good news to real sinners in real time?

To be sure, Family Radio did have a lot of error, from hardness of heart, dull of hearing, etc. Anyone with any discernment realized right away that. In their defense, there was programming that I liked. Anyway you look at it, should they collapse, it will be a tragedy on different levels.

By "Billy S" do you mean Billy Sunday, the famous preacher?

My bad. The "bulls" were actually golden calves at Bethel--not Bashan--and Dan.

Thank God for computerized Bible word/phrase search programs that are so helpful to the modern Bible student to verify passages and their details.

Ah, S.F. John, perhaps it is even more true of institutions than it is of people--

Ecclesiastes 9
11 I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, and the battle is not to the warriors, and neither is bread to the wise, nor wealth to the discerning, nor favor to men of ability; for time and chance overtake them all.---NASB

"All's well that ends well," if I remember my Billy S., correctly, in this case, the converse is true, All's bad that ends badly!

Don't forget that God is the ultimate "multitasker".

In Job God proactively dealt with Job's latent spiritual pride even before it was manifest later in that book, convicted Job's 3 friends of prejudicial assumptions on how God disciplines/punishes people, and promoted/established the position/integrity of the young Elihu as a credible elder/witness. Oh, and He also put Satan in his place once again.

In Camping's case I think God was not only punishing/disciplining Camping's stubbornness but also the flippancy of many of his "followers" as well as "hardening" the hearts of many secularists eager to justify their condemning the whole (all Christianity) by justly condemning the part (Camping's faulty ministry). Hardening their own hearts as so many are wont to do.

Camping reminds me of that prophet who after successfully judging Jeroboam and Israel for erecting the bulls at Bashan and Dan still ended up getting killed by a lion for listening to what he thought was Godly prophecy and took food when he was initially told not to.

Camping also reminds me of David and his census, where Israel bore the brunt of his sin.

You don't lose your salvation by erroneously predicting the exact date that Jesus is returning.

THe End is In Sight--for this network, that is. Unfortunate news since I like much of their music.

FR used to be a very fine ministry before Camping outlived his fellow founders and board members, after which one could not help but notice that the ministry increasingly became more about him and his plans/projects (including--sadly--his obsession with predicting Christ's 2nd coming) than the helpful Christian outreach and service it was previously known for.

On October 20, 2011 the Family Radio web site had a message which included: "Sadly, as we have earnestly studied the Bible over these five months we have found verse after verse that supports and strengthens the
conclusion that the Lord is no longer saving sinners. He has finished
that glorious work."

They have never retracted or explained this statement, and it just disappeared from their web site. I saved the entire page if anyone wants it. No one ever held them accountable for this statement.
