May 16, 2011

One of our staff members called Family Radio on May 13th to ask why they were still asking for money when there are only eight days left before Jesus comes back. The receptionist listened to the question and stated that she would get someone to answer the question. Another lady came on the line and said they needed money for postage. She then stated that she could not give any more information and that we could call the Open Forum and speak to Mr. Camping about it.

If Harold Camping and his devotees truly believe that Jesus is coming back on May 21st, why bother mailing out material? There won’t be anyone to receive it and no one can get saved after May 21st according to Camping. This was another lie from a staff member of Family Radio.

Family RadioI listened to the Open Forum on Friday night as a caller asked a similar question. Mr. Camping emphatically stated that Family Radio is a business, stations had been sold, and the profits from these sales were was put in a reserve fund. The large billboard campaign across the United States was paid from that fund, and according to other sources, the cost of this media blitz was 3 million dollars. Only Harold Camping knows how much is left in the reserve fund.

Now, once Camping had strongly stated that Family Radio is a business, he went into a discussion that none of the reserve fund money was paid to any person at Family Radio. “We are a non-profit organization,” he stated, “and no person can get money for themselves. We are a ministry which is trying to reach people for Christ. I am the president of Family Radio and also the General Manager but I get no salary for this. I am a volunteer.”

The caller then asked a direct question, “What if you are wrong about May 21st being the coming of Jesus?” Camping answered that he was not wrong, the Bible was clear that this was the date of the coming of Jesus and the beginning of the judgment day. Then he went into a tirade about how he had found this hidden truth in the Bible and after a few minutes he lost himself in what he was trying to say, thanked the caller for having called and quickly said, “Let us now go to our next caller.” This is a favorite trick of Camping to go to the next caller when he cannot defend himself intelligently.

It should now be clear that Harold Camping is two faced. He emphatically states that Family Radio is a business, but Family Radio is a ministry when asking for donations. It is highly ironic that the server used to receive donations for Family Radio was down last week and the webmaster apologized for the inconvenience and told people to call the toll free number because operators were standing by and ready to take their donations.

CHILDREN’S PROGRAMMING

Family Radio has children’s programming every Saturday morning, and as I listened to it on May 14th, I shook my head in disbelief when an adult trying to sound like a teenager told the children that May 21, 2011 is the last day for the Christians on the earth and that Jesus is going to come and take them to heaven. The earth is going to experience a great earthquake and there will be judgment for the unsaved people. No person can get saved after May 21st. The man acted like he was calling his mother and told her he was traveling to Florida to tell all his relatives about Jesus and May 21st. It must have made a great impact on children listening when he them it was important to travel and tell all family members about Jesus and May 21st. The program ended with the children actors on the program saying goodbye for the last time since it was the last program they would do on the earth.

This is as low as Harold Camping and his devotees can get when they deceive little children and they should pay attention to the words of Jesus:

“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6)

Harold Camping is preying upon children and leading them to believe a lie which will destroy their faith in God when May 22nd rolls around. They will see that Jesus did not return nor was there a judgment. What are they going to tell the children on the following Saturday? I have lost all respect for Craig Hulsebos and the staff at Family Radio because I cannot understand how these men and women who speak so great about Christ on the radio, can lower themselves to such a depravity that they would defile the children’s programming with the lies of Harold Camping.

LIFE AFTER MAY 21, 2011

Will Craig Hulsebos and the staff at Family Radio finally break loose from Camping this week and confess the great hoax? If not, shame on them for propagating a lie and allowing a false prophet to continue deceiving people.

It is obvious that Camping has geared up for life after May 21st as he is repeatedly speaking on the Open Forum of how God spared Nineveh when the people repented. He is doing a mild form of mind control by planting this thought in their heads and preparing his listeners so they won’t be surprised when they wake up on May 22nd and hear him saying that God has extended the grace period and now people can be saved for another short grace period because so many people repented from their sins.

To utilize this grace period, I predict that Harold Camping will ask people to sacrificially give more money to Family Radio in order to be part of a final harvest. After all, Camping has spent more than $3,000,000 of Family Radio’s reserve fund, and with that depleted, more money must be given. Don’t be surprised to hear Camping state that is he working hard to calculate how long this grace period will last because he is a master of deception and knows how to play the emotions of people and shake loose their money.

NEWS FROM NEW YORK

In scanning the news on the Internet on May 14th, I found an article from Fox News about a man from New York, who is one of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children who have been deceived by Camping and will have a rude awakening on May 22nd. Only God knows how many will lose their faith and walk away from Christ in disgust over Camping and his lies.


New York Man Spends Life Savings Ahead of May 21 Doomsday

A New York man spent his entire $140,000 life savings advertising his prediction that the world will end May 21, the New York Post reported Friday.

Robert Fitzpatrick, Judgement DayRobert Fitzpatrick, a 60-year-old Staten Island resident, said he spent at least that sum on 1,000 subway-car placards and ads on bus kiosks and subway cars.

They say, “Global Earthquake: The Greatest Ever! Judgment Day May 21, 2011.”

In a self-published book, “The Doomsday Code,” Fitzpatrick said the Bible offers “proof that cannot be dismissed.”

“Judgment Day will surprise people. We will not be ready for it,” Fitzpatrick said in an interview with the newspaper. “A giant earthquake will render the earth uninhabitable.”

If you want to set an alarm clock, the quake will happen just before 6:00pm local time, he said.

“God’s people will be resurrected. It is also the day that God stops saving anyone,” he said.

Fitzpatrick hopes that he is one of the chosen ones, but he could not be really certain.

“There’s just a little doubt,” he said. “Most churches teach that if you just believe, you will be saved. It is not our choice. It is God’s choice.”
