Harold Camping, Family Radio, and a Troubling Legacy

Harold Camping, Founder and President of Family Radio, passed away on Sunday, December 15, 2013.  A statement from Family Radio reads as follows: Harold Camping – Home with the Lord! “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.” Psalm 116:15 Yesterday, Sunday, December 15th, at around 5:30 p.m., Harold Camping […]

Family Radio’s Harold Camping Embarrassed, Does Not Repent

I had heard that perhaps Harold Camping repented and that he is no longer teaching at Family Radio. I took the latter part as possibly the exercise of discipline in response to Camping’s errors.

Harold Camping’s May 21 Judgment Day Tragedy


Predictably, Harold Camping’s judgment day prophesy has now become something of a national joke. But it isn’t funny. All along I have had a two-fold fear about this: First, that the Christian religion would once again be the subject of scorn, and, second, that at least some of the followers of Harold Camping would be […]
