This special edition of Let The Bible Speak features the testimonies of former followers of Harold Camping's doctrine. Harold Camping predicted that the world would end back in September of 1994. The testimonies you hear are from those who were once deceived into thinking that we could predict the timing of the Lord's coming. The Bible is very clear in Matthew 24:36 and Mark 13:33 that we do not know the time of the Lord's coming, but we are to always be ready, watching and waiting. Those giving these testimonies have come to embrace this Truth, love the Lord and the Lord's people, and want to warn others now ensnared by Harold Camping's new prediction of the Lord's return on May 21, 2011. Not only has Mr. Camping set another date for the Lord's return, but is teaching other heretical doctrines, such as God's church being given over to Satan, and that the wicked are annihilated at the end of the world. It is the doctrine of Jesus Christ that men and woman, boys and girls need to follow, and not the doctrine of Harold Camping.
always off track! Camping was NEVER a sound Biblical teacher. His views were always off track. 25 years ago his church threw him out for teaching heresy, in 1988. Funny how that year coincides with the year he says that the "church age" ended. He has always been obsessed with dates and numbers and secret things no one else knows. At this point, I do believe it's taken him into dementia. Early on, however, it was a willful determination to follow vain knowledge and private interpretations by his pride. It is like unto Eve, as the serpent deceived her by telling her that her eyes would be opened and she would be like God, knowing (good and evil). "WE CAN KNOW". I feel horrible for his followers and the despondency and emptiness that will follow such foolishness.

Alternative to Family Radio There's a wonderful alternative to Family Radio that is available online:
Many of the great programs Family Radio has dropped are available.
Great Sermon! Believe it or not, there was a time when Harold Camping was a sound teacher. Even as recently as twenty years ago. When I hear Family Radio today, it brings tears to my eyes, remembering how it used to be. What an alternative and a solace it was from the silly, noisy, worldly, and undiscerning mainstream Christian media of the day. It used to be the jewel of sound teaching on the radio waves and Camping was no exception to that. It was under his teaching that I myself was converted. Was it pride? Old age? Misappropriation of Scripture? Whatever it was that derailed Harold Camping off the straight track, I'm praying that on May 22nd he will repent and publically recant of all these heretical teachings that he once did not teach. If there is anyone out there that can relate to this, won't you please also pray that Family Radio will return to being what it once was. Thank You.
