NO DAYS LEFT! Why Harold Camping Should Return Everybody’s Money and Retire!

21 May

According to Harold Camping, octogenarian Family Radio station owner and self-taught Bible scholar, the 2nd Coming of the Lord Jesus should have happened by now. If you’re reading this, you’re either not one of the elect, or somehow Jesus overlooked you in the rapture, OR Harold Camping was wrong again!

I believe he was wrong again. And he should do at least three things before the day is out:

1.  He should apologize to the Christian family for embarrassing the name of Christ with his arrogant, gnostic, ridiculous calculation that, even though Jesus said we couldn’t know the exact date of His Second Coming, he was sure he knew.  Perhaps he needs to read up on failed predictions by our Seventh-Day Adventist friends, Edgar Whisenant in his Eighty-Eight Reasons Why Jesus Will Return in 1988, and one particularly troubling example from South Korea.  In 1992, Lee Jang Rim, the head of one of some 200 Protestant churches in that country, announced that the rapture would take place on October 28, 1992.  Based on a vision of a sixteen-year-old boy, twenty thousand Korean fundamentalists in South Korea, Los Angeles, and New York City took the prediction seriously.  Hundreds quit their jobs, many left their families, some women unfortunately even had abortions (presumably to make their own raptures easier).  Rim’s church bought costly ads in the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times.  They urged readers to get ready for the rapture and to refuse to have 666 imprinted in bar code on their foreheads or right hands.

On October 28, one researcher says, “Riot police, plainclothes officers, and reporters crowded outside Korean churches, flanked by fire engines, ambulances, and searchlights. Believers took the failure of the prophecy calmly, and there were no reported riots.  Only sadness. In December 1992 Rim was arrested and sentenced to two years in prison for having bilked $4.4 million from his flock. He had invested the money in bonds that didn’t mature until the following year!”

RECENT INTERVIEW ON CAMPING

2.  Camping needs to immediately retire from the ministry and put himself under the spiritual leadership of a local church and their leadership team.  This will be extremely difficult for him to do, especially in light of his cultic understanding that God has abandoned all local churches and that all Christians should disassociate themselves from local congregations.  But he should repent of his bizarre, unbiblical perspective on the local and universal Body of Christ (which He is presently building).  He should step down from radio ministry, turn the microphone and the good work that Family Radio stations do over to others, and humble himself before the family of God worldwide.

3.  He needs to do everything in his power to return every cent which believers have contributed to his ministry based on his wayward predictions of Christ’s Second Coming.  Here is his response to a caller who suggested he do exactly that on May 22nd, 2011:  RETURN MONEY?

He should spend some of his money to place billboards across the USA to undo some of the damage he has caused.  That billboard might look something like this:

Dr. James White HERE  accuses Camping of sliding further and further away from orthodoxy (apparently Camping advocates annihilationism as well as a kind of modalism, denying the deity of Jesus).

Discussion Questions:  How should we pray for Mr. Camping?  Is there any way that the wider Body of Christ can speak the truth in love to him and seek to bring him spiritual health before he leaves this vale of tears by way of death (or Christ’s Second Coming!)?

    MR. CAMPING DO THE RIGHT THING. SAY YOU ARE SORRY AND THEN RETIRE FROM FAMILY RADIO. ANYTHING YOU SAY NOW BASED ON WHAT YOU THINK THE BIBLE IS SAYING, CAN NO LONGER BE BELIEVED. YOU WERE WRONG ABOUT 1994 AND TODAY, MAY 21ST CAME AND WENT, SO YOU ARE WRONG ABOUT 2011. WE WILL FORGIVE YOU BUT ONLY IF YOU DO THE RIGHT THING. SO DO LEAVE FAMILY RADIO!

    I was broght up as a JW and when I became an adult I left because they are a cult and a false prophet. So when I heard Harold Camping and tested what he said with the scriptures I knew this man was nothing more than Balaam – a prophet for profit – leading people astray and causing those that followed him to be cursed. I knew he would be wrong on his prediction of the world coming to an end because of what the Bible says in Matthew chapter 24. He is a liar and if he ever had the truth it’s not in him any more. Repent Mr. Camping. Pay the people who believed you back their monies Mr. Camping. Retire Mr. Camping and never go back to a public venue ever again. Also, apologize for running ahead of God. I’ll be praying for you.

    why would he need money from people if he was sure it was all ending on may 21st? He like a lot of false prophets ,get rich at the expense of others. Hurts the real preachers ,followers,of christ.He should return all funds taken . probably should be arrested for milking the money from believers and for the stress and loss of their property . The end of the world will come for us all in time when we die.only question is which place will you go then. could be today ,or tommorrow.

    i have an important message for Mr. Harold Camping. As I can contest, he has not been wrong about the date of our Lord’s return. He is bang on in fact. I would like to speak privately with him if possible.
    Thanks for work in this area!
