Harold Camping: Unrepentant False Prophet Refuses to Stop Dragging Christ's Name Through the Mud

by James White

When someone has been given over for decades to false teaching and arrogant spiritual dictatorship over others, well...we shouldn't be surprised at what is happening as I type these words. I am listening live to Camping's rambling press conference. I cannot possibly express my deep disgust at this man's willingness to continue to drag the Christian faith and the Holy Bible through the mud. He is utterly unrepentant, and now is adding to his condemnation blatant lies. He just told the gathered press that no church today believes that every word of the Bible comes from God. Of course, it is Camping who thinks the words of the Bible are theological play-dough, all there to serve his whims and his next false prophecy. But, will the press differentiate? Will they speak to responsible Christian scholars, believing scholars? No, Camping is truly a plague upon us, not only here in the United States, but all around the world. God have mercy upon us.

"We had all of our dates correct. We had all our proofs correct." "May 21 was a spiritual coming...He has come, in the sense that He now has the world under judgment." Well, I pretty well called that one, sadly. I had a feeling we would be stuck with this foolishness until October 21, 2011. What an amazingly foolish thing: "Well, folks, we only have 153 days to go, but, hey, we aren't going to put up billboards and stuff, we are going to play music and do teaching about how to live as a good Christian." Brilliant. I can't wait to see the video of this.

Now Camping is lying about Greek verbs. I cannot possibly imagine what the press is going to do with this.

Well, folks, I don't know what else to say. The man is an inveterate heretic, unrepentant, and we call all of his followers to repent and abandon this man's wild delusions.

The End is Near? The False Teaching of Harold Camping

By Albert Mohler


The church is not to be arrogantly setting dates, but instead to be eagerly waiting for him. Of that we can be truly certain.

Harold Camping is now warning the world that the Day of Judgment will begin at about 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, 2011. The 89-year-old founder of Family Radio has made such pronouncements before, most recently in 1994. He now says that he simply miscalculated then, but he is absolutely certain that he has the right calculation now. You have been warned.

Ambassador Model-Knowledge

Since I'll be heading back out to the Ambassadors' Academy this summer, I thought this message from Greg Koukl was timely. He's got some good basic tips of being and effective ambassador for Christ.

Grieving, Rejoicing that Osama bin Laden Is Dead

by Christopher Morgan

Osama bin Laden is dead.

How do we as Christians respond?

As I watched the news reports, various passages came to mind–everything from Jesus’ teaching on loving and praying for enemies, to James’ forceful picture of a future slaughterhouse coming upon oppressors of God’s people. The more I reflect on it, the more I realize that my internal tension is similar to another one I have felt many times before–a tension related to the biblical doctrine of hell.
As strange as it seems, hell is depicted in the Bible both as tragedy and victory. Hell is tragic, as it is awful that people rebel against God and persistently spurn the Savior. God is “slow to anger,” “abounding in love and faithfulness” (Exod. 34:6-7), and does not take pleasure in the punishment of the wicked, just as he does not find pleasure in the existence of sin (Ezek. 18:23). Jesus likewise grieved and wept over human lostness, sin, and the impending judgment (Matt. 23:37; Luke 19:41; 23:34). The apostle Paul also shared this perspective, earnestly longing and praying for the conversion of his lost fellow-Jews, even to the point of being willing to undergo God’s wrath for them (Rom. 9:1-6; 10:1). That sinners go to hell is tragic and should break our hearts.
