MY CONTACT WITH FAMILY
Once I heard this
teaching on Family Radio, I decided to call them and ask them if our church
could take over the network since Jesus was coming back shortly and Harold
Camping would not be around. Since Harold could not take any money with him to
heaven, I told them they should really give the entire network to us free of
charge. The person answering the phone became very uneasy and told me that she
did not really believe what Camping was teaching, but could not do anything
about it. Harold was planning all along to keep the network which told me that
he didn’t even believe in his own insane teaching. In the meantime, Harold
Camping directed his staff to keep on soliciting funds and doing their monthly
fundraising. Camping is like all other false prophets and charlatans, there is
no shame, just greed to get more money, making the ministry bigger and bigger,
and make a name for him self. Here are two statements from people inside Family
“I am a Family Radio employee. You probably
already know that some of us who disagree with Mr. Camping are staying on at
Family Radio (for now) in the hopes that there will soon be some pieces to pick
up and rebuild what has arguably been the premier radio outlet for the gospel
message in much of the United States. We do our jobs as well as we can under the
circumstances, not hiding our disagreement, but bearing up under the pressure to
conform to a blasphemous heresy. It is our hope for the future that keeps us
here, not cowardice and not agreement with Camping. There are many ways to work
toward the goal of restoring the orthodox gospel message to Family Radio, and
some of us have chosen to remain for now. Rest assured that if the time comes
when it is clear that there is no hope of the true gospel being restored to
Family Radio, I will leave, not looking back.”
“I know quite a lot about this subject, since
I've been an employee of Family Radio for 18 years. You don't know the pain
we've been going through. The 1994? debacle was bad. I've personally been
verbally assaulted by people in the church who assume I agree with Harold
Camping, because I work for Family Radio. I calmly try to tell them that, no, I
do *not* agree with him. But now it's worse. Now Family Radio employees are
hearing things like "Hey man, you work for a cult. Why don't you quit?” The
answer is: most of the people that work for F.R feel that Mr. Camping is just
plain wrong, or has gone delusional in his advanced age. We are praying that the
board of directors will do something about the situation. In the meantime, we
are holding on - waiting for the situation to be resolved so we can rebuild
Family Radio to the faithful ministry it used to be. We aren't quitting in
droves because we feel that Family Radio is still doing a lot of good, and still
deserves to be supported. Yes, in the future if things get worse (and believe
me, they can) then the decision to leave will become more attractive. That is a
personal decision. But the point here is that the attention so far has been on
how Mr. Camping's teaching has degenerated, and not on the faithful employees
who are trying to do God's will under bad circumstances.”
WILL HAROLD CAMPING DIE AS
A FALSE PROPHET?
Radio is pushing Camping’s latest pamphlet called, “Has the Era of the Church
Age Come to an End?” There are probably some one million Christians listening to
the Family Radio network and most of them are conservative and Bible anchored.
These are the people who cherish moral family values; they are tithing members
of churches and active in Sunday school and other evangelical outreach programs.
In other words, the stalwart of the Christian church, the very backbone, is
being destroyed by Camping. I want to share a letter with you, which was written
to the Board of Directors of Family Radio:
“Greetings in Christ Jesus our Lord. I have been
a supporter of the network since shortly after my conversion in 1988. 90% of
your programming is excellent. I hope Family Radio can be salvaged.
“Harold Camping’s book 1994? prompted me
to then write a lengthy review denouncing the work, and now I am hearing and
reading things equally absurd and untrue. Mr. Camping asserts that all the
churches are dead and are to be abandoned. Not merely the ‘liberal churches,’
but all churches. This is unbiblical and destructively divisive. To put a point
on it: This teaching is satanic. Those who support and/or promote this teaching
are partakers of his evil doctrine. Notice the contradictions between the quotes
below and those in the postscript of this letter.
“According to Camping, the two witnesses of
Revelation 11:3ff are the church, and they (she) are now dead: the church is
turned over to Satan, and he rules therein. A few faithful groups remain (Family
Radio is the only one he ever mentions), but just as Israel was in captivity in
Babylon, so the church today is under Satan’s complete sway. To wit: the
sacraments are ineffectual and not to be observed just as the animal sacrifices
and circumcision were not done in captivity.”
“His ‘good news’ appears to be: The temple is
destroyed, the gates of hell have prevailed, and the church is dead, never to
rise again. So send your money to faithful Family Radio!”
“He writes: ‘No longer are you to be under the
spiritual rulership of the church. This command is given because God is finished
with the era of churches being used of God to evangelize.’”
"We must remove ourselves [sic] from the church.”
"But as judgment comes on the church the true
believer is to stay outside the church bringing the Gospel to the world.”
"Because the church era has come to an end the
churches have become dead as the church of Sardis long ago became dead.
(Rev 3:1). The churches of today have had their candlestick removed even as the
church of Ephesus of Rev. 2 was warned
that God would remove their candlestick if they did not return to their first
love. The church has ceased to be an institution or divine organism to serve God
as His appointed representative on earth.
"The elders and deacons are being guided by their
own minds rather than by the Holy Spirit."
WHAT TO DO ACCORDING TO HAROLD CAMPING
"If the individual or family are simply attending
a church and are not members they can stop attending that church but continue to
fellowship outside of the church with individuals of like mind.
"If a congregation decides to be obedient to this
command they can reorganize their congregation from a church congregation, to
become a fellowship of believers. The elders will no longer be elders. The
deacons will no longer be deacons. The Pastor will no longer be pastor. In other
words no individuals will have spiritual rule over the congregation. Those
members of this congregation who disagree with this decision to disband would
have to find membership in another congregation."
The above quotes are from Camping’s article, "The
End of the External Church." 3
His hyper-Amillenialism has gone beyond
pessimism. Is there any recourse to pull the plug on him? I call on the faithful
involved in Family Radio’s management to stop airing Harold Camping’s latter-day
teachings. Family Radio is too wonderful a ministry to let go to pot. But Mr.
Camping appears to be in his dotage, and it is dangerous when God’s word is
being so wrongly divided. To whom can I look for help in this matter? Any help
you can be is appreciated. Thank you.
Yours in Christ,
P.S. Ironically and contradictorily Mr. Camping
is also quoted as saying:
What do you say to those who suspect you of trying to get a following - of
starting a new movement or a new church?
"I don’t want anyone to follow me. I am not asking anyone to follow Family
Radio, because at our best all we can do is teach God’s Word and be an example
of the fact that we all need to go back to the Word of God alone for our
answers. Oh, if only pastors could see that we are not their enemy. We are not
opposed to them, we are not trying to put them down, and we are not trying to
come with controversial or contentious doctrine. Actually, God’s marching orders
in Matthew 28:19 and 20 are two fold: the Church is to teach and to baptize. We
are not a church. We do not baptize. In fact, we urge those who listen, to go to
a Bible-teaching church, be baptized and submit to the discipline and fellowship
of the believers there. We can never become a church...we are only a network of
radio stations - a voice speaking out clearly - teaching the Bible by spoken
word, by song (as mentioned in Ephesians 5:19) and giving opportunity to those
who want to challenge, question, even debate what God is saying to all of us in
His Word. I feel badly that there are those who misunderstand why I teach as
clearly as I do. I don’t claim to be infallible. I want no personal following.
No one has to agree with my teaching to be a member of the Family Radio FAMILY.
Even our staff is not required to agree with my teaching. They are, of course,
required to be students of the Word themselves and to live exemplary lives."
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE
Most members in
The Gideons are conservative strong Bible believing Christians, and since Family
Radio from the beginning had a wonderful programming of majestic Christian music
and Bible teaching programs from a variety of conservative Christian pastors and
teachers, thousands of Gideons have been Family Radio listeners over the years.
For those of you who might not know anything about The Gideons, it is an
organization dating back more than 100 years, who has been placing Bibles in
hotels, motels and giving out New Testaments to nurses, military recruits and
students in high school and colleges, etc. Each member must be a businessman or
a professional, like a doctor, lawyer, etc and must be in good standing in his
home church. Gideons are organized in chapters in most cities and counties in
the United States and in many foreign countries. They go to churches, where they
speak and raise money to buy Bibles, which are then placed above mentioned
places free of charge. Millions of Bibles have been placed and thousands upon
thousands of people have been saved over the years. When Harold Camping declares
that the age of the church is over, with only a few spoken words, he is trying
to destroy an organization which God raised up. Has Harold really thought
through how much destruction he has done and is continuing to do? Most likely
not! The religious demonic spirit that possesses Harold Camping sits with a
smirk on his face as Harold “drools” out his garbage on the air waves. Unless a
person is strongly anchored in the Bible and has the discernment of the Holy
Spirit, he will be swayed by the “smooth talking” of Harold as he sits a
self-proclaimed prophet in the little kingdom he has stolen, known as Family
Radio. What a tragedy!
CAMPING IS REPEATING THE
SAME LIES OF THE LATTER DAY RAIN PEOPLE
time 1940-1955, there was a revival movement sweeping through Canada and the
northern states of the U.S., which became known as the Latter Day Rain.
From this movement we have buzz words like “Joel’s Army, Manifest Sons of God,
Better Covenant, The True Sons of David, Over Comers, The Joseph Company,
Qualified Christians, True Sons, Remnant Sons, etc.” Before we take a look at
the Latter Day Rain People, here is a truth I would like to share with you:
SEEKING SIGNS INSTEAD OF
The downfall of so
many Christian pastors, evangelists and other leaders in the United States has
been THEIR HUNGER FOR THE SUPERNATURAL, FOR HEALINGS, SIGNS AND WONDERS!
Instead of seeking the Healer, Jesus Christ, they cried, prayed and fasted for
miracles and instead of hearing from God, demon spirits came to them, disguised
as angels sent from God. When miracles began to manifest in their meetings, the
focus was on the gifts. Most Christians do not know the Bible very well, they
have a shallow prayer life, and they are not walking in the holiness of God.
Many Christians came to Christ because they did not want to go to hell, but they
are not interested in walking with God and serving Him on this earth.
They reject the
food laws of given by God as found in Leviticus chapter 11 and choose to eat
junk food and drink lots of sodas. As a result, their bodies are breaking down
and sickness is setting in. The two World Wars in the last century lowered the
moral values in the United States, sexual promiscuity became rampant, and movies
from Hollywood have had the terrible impact of promoting pornography.
denominations offered no relief from sickness and the Baptist churches rejected
the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, when a healer arrived on the
scene, people flocked by the thousands to get relief. Now understand this
statement: The focus in the miracle services was not on repentance from sins,
salvation, a call to change the lifestyle and live a holy life! The focus was
primarily for the sick person to get a healing so he could go back home and
resume his normal lifestyle!
The apostle Paul
gave a strong warning to the church in Corinth:
such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the
apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an
angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be
transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
Jesus warned about focusing on
the power and rejoicing in the power itself. Here is what Jesus said:
seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto
us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall
from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but
rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
The Bible speaks about
seducing spirits and doctrines of devils:
Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the
faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies
in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
1 Timothy 4:1-2
there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false
teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying
the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many
shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be
evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make
merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their
damnation slumbereth not. 2 Peter 2:1-3
healers became wealthy men and lived a lavish lifestyle; others became snared in
doctrines and teachings from the occult and led many people astray. Some began
to see themselves like “gods,” and instead of being servants, they became lord
and master over their followers.
WHO LAID THE FOUNDATION FOR
Nelson Darby (1800-1882) was the man following Miller to prepare the way for the
Devil to take control over the Christians. He was born in London, England to a
prominent Anglo-Irish family and received his early education at Westminster
School in London. At the age of 15, his parents moved to Ireland and took up
residence in an ancestral castle. John continued his education, attending
Trinity College in Dublin and graduated in 1819. He continued his education with
the study of law, and in 1822, he was admitted to the Irish Chancery Bar. Darby
During his secular
studies, he had also been a student of the Bible, and proclaimed himself to be a
Christian. Whether he was born again or not is impossible for us to know today.
He felt compelled to minister to the poor Catholics of Ireland. Consequently, he
gave up his law business, and in 1825, he was ordained as a Deacon in the Church
of Ireland. The following year he was promoted to priest and served in this
capacity until 1827 when he resigned. Darby stated that the reason for his
resignation was that he felt that the church should not be controlled by the
state and that ministry came from the Holy Spirit, who gave the gifts with which
prophecy meetings at this time held in the mansion of Viscountess Powerscourt
near Bray. It was at these meetings Darby was introduced to John Bellett,
Anthony Groves and John Parnell. There were a number of other men, all having
the same feeling that organized churches were in error and that something new
had to be birthed. From these discontented men came a movement, known first as,
“The Brethren,” and later known as, “The Plymouth Brethren”. The movement dates
its birth back to 1828 in a larger meeting in Dublin.
In 1828, Darby
wrote a pamphlet entitled, “The Nature and Unity of the Church of Christ.” In it
he laid out the doctrine of this new movement. In 1830, Francis W. Neuman
persuaded Darby to visit Oxford (the university town in England) where he
introduced him to Benjamin W. Newton from Plymouth. That year Darby made his
first visit to France. This is important because there was great political
upheaval in France at this time, as it had not yet recovered from the
Revolution, Napoleon and his wars. It had reverted back to a type of monarchy
under an iron grip of the Illuminati and its banking was in the hands of the
Rothschild banking empire. In order for Darby to travel to France, there had to
be people working behind the scenes, providing protection so that he could
freely travel within France. I will give further details about upon this
protection later on.
In 1832, there was
a gathering of Darby’s fellow believers, and the beginning of The Plymouth
Brethren came into being. The official publication of this new organization was
called, “The Christian Witness,” and Darby was one of the writers. Between the
years of 1836-79, Darby traveled extensively in Western Europe, North America,
Australia and New Zealand.
There are some
troublesome questions that surface when a person tries to investigate and track
the life of Darby. For example, travel was not that easy during that part of the
1800’s, yet Darby moved like a modern day “jet set” traveler. Traveling by train
was just in the early stages of development in 1830, there were no automobiles
and airplanes, and to move on the sea had to be done via sailing ships until
steamships came into use toward the latter part of the 1800’s. Traveling cost
money, so from what source did Darby get his money? During the years of 1837
through 1838, Darby spent much time in French speaking Switzerland. Darby spoke
and taught the Bible to Methodists, Anabaptists, and Robert Haldane’s reading
groups and other denominational churches.
Looking back from
a historical position it becomes clear that Darby had an agenda which was not
known to the groups to which he ministered at that time. He was a man with a
distinct mission, THE DESTRUCTION OF ORGANIZED CHURCHES AND A FOUNDATION FOR
THEIR OWN ORGANIZATION. Darby also taught that the church age was over and the
imminent return of Christ was at hand. He recommended that believers in Christ
should not be involved in politics, education and building communities, but
rather, they were to withdraw and just wait for the return of Christ. This
doctrine became known as “dispensationalist teaching.”
Darby taught that
the Church was in ruins; it had failed and could not be restored. All the
previous systems that God had set up for man had failed and the Church of Jesus
Christ was going in the same direction. The result was not slow in coming as
scores of Christians left their churches in Europe and joined the new group
called, “The Plymouth Brethren.” The result of this theology would not be felt
until the next century when Christians had withdrawn from all public life and
left politics and education to the unbelievers. Hence, there was little
resistance in Europe to the devastating policies which gave birth to World War I
EUROPEAN JEWISH LEADERSHIP
As I have
pointed out in previous articles in The Dove magazine, Jewish leaders in
Russia, the Baltic nations, Poland and other East European countries had been
working on a plan to retake the land of Palestine and establish a Jewish state.
It later became known as the Zionist movement. Moses Hess, Karl Marx and
Friedrich Engels (German Jews) developed the doctrine of what became known as
Communism. Zionism was birthed out of communism, and to this day, Israel is a
socialistic state, even if the kibbutz system is slowly fading away. Any
Christian reading a statement like these for the first time is going to be
shocked, but again, I would refer you to back issues of The Dove, which
are available upon request.
Illuminati (a Jewish led group) fomented the French Revolution in 1787, there
was no significant Christian church in France, since the French Protestants
known as “Huguenots” had either been killed or driven into exile and the last
persecution led by the Roman Catholic Church took place between 1745 to1754. The
leaders of the Illuminati knew that they had been successful in France, but
their attempt to foment a similar revolution in
England failed due to the strong
Christian influence when vast numbers of people in England were converted to
Christ under the preaching of John (above left) and Charles Wesley (right), and George Whitefield (below left). The Jewish leadership knew that
persecution could not be started in England and the United States but if they
could infiltrate and alter the doctrine of the Christian faith, it would help
them to obtain political power in these nations.
There is an old
cliché, “Follow the money trail and you will find the source.” Strange as it may
sound, both Darby and Cyrus Scofield received financing from Jewish sources,
which was not known at the time that it happened. Strong political or religious
ideas can sometimes make strange bed fellows. The road to the Golden Calf was
DARBY WAS A RUTHLESS LEADER
came back to Plymouth in 1845, he found that the group had increased numerically
under its local leader, Benjamin Newton. However, Benjamin had different views
on the doctrine of prophecy and church administration. Darby at once broke
fellowship with Newton and formed a new organization with people who were
following him. In 1847, some teaching notes by Newton were given to Darby, who
labeled them heresy. At this time, Newton admitted “mistakes” and published a
statement to correct his teaching, but this was not good enough for Darby who
excommunicated Newton and his followers from the Brethren movement. Darby’s
followers became known as Darbyites.
In 1848, the war
between Darby and Newton escalated. Both George Muller (1805-1898,
left), famous for his orphanage work, and Henry Craik were
Brethren leaders in the city of Bristol. They had received two members from
Newton’s group and allowed them to participate in communion. Darby became
furious and stated that his excommunication was not being upheld. Darby then
demanded that Muller and Craik publicly repudiate Newton’s teaching. When the
group in Bristol refused to comply with Darby’s request, he declared the
Brethren from Bristol “unclean” and refused fellowship with them. This caused a
schism in the entire Brethren movement and the two camps became known as “Open”
and “Exclusive.” Darby became the undisputed leader in the exclusive group.
When Darby was
invited by D.L. Moody (1837-1899), the great American evangelist, to
present some Bible readings in Chicago, a conflict arose between Darby and Moody
over the issue of the free will in the Christian. The contention became so
heated, that in a public meeting Darby closed his Bible and left the meeting.
After this, Darby publicly condemned Moody’s work, saying that it would bring
worldliness into the church. Darby’s last visit to the United States took place
There is no doubt
in my mind that God protected Moody and used this incident to get Darby and his
teaching out from the revival meetings of Moody. As a result, Moody did not
embrace Darby’s teaching that the church age was over, but he was infected with
the spiritual disease of dispensationalism and the coming political state of
DARBY UNDER ATTACK FROM
Darby was attacked by close friends because he had developed certain views that
appeared similar in nature to what Newton years ago had retracted. Darby was now
an extreme dispensationalist and stated that the church was in a state of ruin
due to human error. The church could not be restored and had to be abandoned.
Believers were to meet in home groups and live a holy life while they waited for
the return of Christ. The Scriptures were to be the sole and sufficient guide
for a believers’ faith and conduct according to the interpretation of the Bible
written down by Darby.
THE FOUNDATION IS LAID
doctrines laid down by Darby were to be used by others for years to come.
American Jewish leaders would in the future finance preachers and evangelists
who would teach that Jews did not have to accept Jesus and be born again but
that God had a special plan for them and the formation of the State of Israel
was part of that plan.
By preaching a
hyped up message that Jesus’ return was imminent and Christians should therefore
abandon all involvement in civic duties, like voting, holding political office
and being active in public education, it was all handed over on a plate to
future organizations like the ACLU, etc.
The doctrine of
the failure of the Church of Jesus Christ was picked up by the Mormons and the
Jehovah’s witnesses and made it easier for them to pick off Christians and get
them into their clutches. It also gave life to the Latter Day Rain movement in
the 1940’s and its many offspring groups which are now infecting Christianity
from different angles. It has also become the cornerstone in Harold Camping’s
WHO WERE DARBY’S HANDLERS?
In the book
“The Incredible Scofield and His Book,” Joseph M. Canfield, shows that
Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (1843-1921) became the American minister who
would bring Darby’s teaching into the mainstream of Christianity in the United
States. In his book, Canfield brings out the connection between Darby and
Scofield, the finances of these men, and also the Jewish connection.
Using information from
Canfield’s book in my next newsletter, we are going to look at the “Secret Six,”
a group of prominent men from Boston, who not only fomented the opening salvo of
the American Civil War, but also worked behind the scenes in paving the way for
the teachings of Darby to be spread.
We are also going to look
at the people from Europe who were not part of the Brethren movement but
influenced Darby in his thinking.
Some people might
say, “Why are you detailing all these historical facts instead of just painting
a broad picture?” Well, right now in the year 2006, we are experiencing the
greatest deception and destruction in the Christian church since the first
century. It is imperative that today’s generation understands what is happening
and why they hold certain theological views. Unless the Church lines up with the
Bible, it will end up in the camp of the Antichrist.
WAS DARBY AWARE THAT HE WAS
BEING USED BY JEWS?
the writings Darby left behind, my belief is that he had his own agenda and did
not understand that he was manipulated by others who had a different agenda.
Karl Marx coined a phrase that would fit Darby – “Useful Idiot.”
Darby had a short temper, he could not tolerate others challenging his views;
he was egocentric and felt that he and only he had the whole truth from God.
These are the weaknesses used by Satan to take brilliant men and turning them
into false prophets and teachers. When men and women are insecure and filled
with inferiority, they tend to become bullish, loud, and stubborn while trying
to prove that only they know what is right.
Pride drove Darby
to make sure that his doctrine would survive his own death and spread as far as
possible on the earth for the ages to come. He did not know it then, but knows
it now, that he was possessed by a religious spirit from the Devil which led him
astray and has caused millions of people to end up in hell or are on their way
Was Darby ever
born again? It is possible that he was saved as a young man but we will not know
this until the judgment seat of Christ. If he shows up there, we will know he
was saved; but if he shows up at the Great White Throne judgment, then we will
know that he never knew Jesus, that he was an impostor just like Judas Iscariot.
The most important
thing for you to settle is, “Are born again and on your way to heaven?” If you
do not know for sure, stop everything you are doing and pray to God that He will
help you to be saved. Contact us and ask for help how to be born again. We have
