"I don't want to hear so you don't have to tell me / How you rewrite history a little every day / Till it's lies / That you don't have to tell me" - Tony Banks, from "The Border" (Bankstatement, 1989)
Family Radio and Harold Camping are engaged in rewriting history on a scale that would make George Orwell blush. Before both May 21 and Oct 24, 2011, the Family Radio web site had texts written by Camping and Family Radio about the upcoming events. After the events did not happen as predicted, the web site was sanitized by the removal of these documents, and Family Radio pretended like these documents never existed. Their message changed dramatically after the event. They have never explained in any meaningful way why these documents were removed, or that these documents were incorrect.
Well, I saved the documents. The link below is to a MegaUpload share where you can download a zip file with these documents.
Why am I doing this? Because my view is that Family Radio is still soliciting donations under false pretenses by pretending like these documents never were available, and that Family Radio never taught this material. Anyone who encounters this mininstry needs to know the truth. They are soliciting your money under false pretenses, claiming (on their current web site): "You too can take part in sending the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to your town and around the world through your financial support." They have not sent the gospel by any known Christian standard to the world in 2011.
We can laugh about a senile old man claiming the end of the world is coming, and being wrong, but this has gone far beyond humor. Family Radio publically stated on October 20, 2011 that "the Lord is no longer saving sinners" which is a strong statement that goes against the Christian religion, and then a few days later they removed this statement with no explanation.
The archive includes:
Book: "GOD GIVES ANOTHER INFALLIBLE PROOF THAT ASSURES THE RAPTURE WILL OCCUR MAY 21, 2011"
Book: "THE END OF THE CHURCH AGE...AND AFTER" (2 files, preface and rest of text)
Pamphlet: "THE END OF THE WORLD IS ALMOST HERE! HOLY GOD WILL BRING JUDGMENT DAY ON MAY 21, 2011"
Monograph: "NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR?"
Book: "We Are Almost There!"
HTML Text of: "SPECIAL MESSAGE 10/20/2011" which says: "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." (This was removed from Camping's web site after Oct 24 without explanation.)
