May 21, 2011 Deception

            If some Christians only knew how many souls they drive to hell because they misrepresent the Word of God. Family Radio, led by Harold Camping, claims that one week from today the World is Coming to an End. When that day comes and passes without event, I wonder how many more people will be driven even further away from ever becoming a Christian. Even if the Father had considered that May 21st was the day, He would change it so that Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man” could be fulfilled. This is one of the cases where Scripture is literal and crystal clear. Man’s misinterpretation of it can become quite twisted.

            Harold Camping claims that he now knows the Day of  Christ’s Return for absolute certain. He claims that because of his tireless study of the Bible, God has called him to be a prophet.  Because of the end times we live in, God has opened up to him the wisdom to declare that May 21, 2011 is for certain Judgment Day. This wisdom was not available to mankind before this because it was sealed.

            I could write a very lengthy paper refuting Harold Camping and Family Radio, but I do not feel that is necessary. There is something so much better than that. The occurrence of May 22, 2011 will come about and when it does, Harold Camping and family radio will be scrambling to make up excuses again. This is not the first time Camping has made a bold prediction about Judgment Day. On Sept. 6, 1994, dozens of Camping’s believers gathered inside Alameda’s Veterans Memorial Building to await the return of Christ, an event Camping had promised for two years. Followers dressed children in their Sunday best and held Bibles open-faced toward heaven. But the world did not end. The only thing that occurred the next day was excuses about the slight miscalculation that was made because he overlooked one last factor. With this last factor added, he believes it is for absolute certain it is correct this time. But the Bible has something to say about this. Deuteronomy 18:20-22 says clearly, “But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’ — when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.”

            Dear reader, please do not allow Harold Camping or Family Radio to interfere with a true relationship you can have with Jesus Christ. As you can see from Deuteronomy 18:20-22, Harold Camping and Family Radio do not have anything to do with Jesus Christ. Jesus warns us twice in Matthew 24 verses 11 and 24 that many false prophets will arise in the end times. He tells us to beware, but He also assures us that He is definitely coming back and to be ready. Are you ready? The signs of His Second Coming are all around us. We live in an upside down world groaning for His return. Jesus assures us that if we truly put our trust in Him, He will not let us down like man will, for John 8:32 says, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

  1. I think you are somewhat right but are missing a very important point, The Bible teaches that Satan can bring in false brethern from the outside into a fellowship. It is a mistake to assume that all false teaching comes from sincere Christians. A certain amount is from people who are serving Satan and are deliberately trying to weaken the church. Obviously only God knows Harold Campings heart.

      I am not sure why you wrote what you did. I never stated that all false teaching comes from sincere Christians. I also never judged Harold Camping’s intent. I simply wrote what I did to help encourage those who have been turned away from coming to know Jesus because of false prophecy. I only pointed out what the Bible truly teaches. Please re-read the last paragraph in my blog entry and you will see that this particular one is written for non-believers and for those who have been damaged by the faith.
      God bless and may you win many more souls for the Lord! 

  2. I think you summed it up wonderfully.
