-It is Over Today for the Dangerous Mr. Camping (Hundreds Died Last Time)

Today is the real ‘probably’ definite day it all comes down according to false teacher Harold Camping. May 21 was just a ‘spiritual’ warm up:

“A lot of things we didn’t have quite right will probably be finished out on Oct. 21.

“It wont be spiritual on October 21st, the world is going to be destroyed all together, but it will be very quick.”

Hopefully it will be all over for Camping’s dangerous ‘ministry’ at the end of the day. Hundreds actually died last time on May 21 thanks to Harold Camping’s false prediction. Hopefully no one loses their lives this time around.

You probably didn’t hear about the hundreds that died in May since the main stream media in America ignored the story. While the majority of Americans were making fun of Camping’s doomsday message, half a world away in Vietnam, thousands of Hmong Christians gathered on a mountain top in northern Vietnam to wait out the end after hearing Camping’s teaching on short wave radio. Unfortunately they were attacked by government forces since it was deemed to be an illegal gathering. Here’s one report of the incident:

After listening to a translation of Camping’s prediction 7,000 of these people (known in the West as Montagnards) gathered on a mountain praising God their suffering at the hands of the communist regime was about to end because Jesus was returning that day in May to establish a new kingdom,.

The police and military police slaughtered many of them at gunpoint – beheading two pastors. Others were arrested. I am told by Hmong pastors that so many were shot dead that they were buried in mass graves bulldozed over in an episode that I read about in Britain but did not understand the magnitude of until I got here.

Response: Camping’s predictions were laughable to most of us, but as a direct result of his false teaching, hundreds were slaughtered in Vietnam.

We look upon Harold Camping as a joke but over short wave radio his message was gladly received by a people hoping to finally be free from communist rule. Few Christian programs reach into that mountainous region of Vietnam, so Camping’s program received far more attention than it should have. Missionaries in the area tried to tell the Hmong pastors that the teaching was false but it was far too appealing to ignore plus the message gained authority coming over the short wave radio like it did.

For us, Camping is just a humorous false teacher, but the results of his false teaching are anything but funny. Hopefully we will finally be done with the dangerous Harold Camping and his ministry when the clock strikes midnight and bring us in a new day- October 22, in the year of our Lord 2011.            *Top

    20But any prophet who falsely claims to speak in my name or who speaks in the name of another god must die.’

    21“But you may wonder, ‘How will we know whether or not a prophecy is from the Lord?’ 22If the prophet speaks in the Lord’s name but his prediction does not happen or come true, you will know that the Lord did not give that message. That prophet has spoken without my authority and need not be feared.

    Deuteronomy 18: 20-22
    New Living Translation

    Put another way, the Bible says that if an individual is a prophet of the Lord, his prophecies will be 100% accurate. Otherwise, he as ‘spoken without authority and need not be feared.’

    Thanks Brian,
    Worst of all, Camping arrogantly ignores the clear teaching of Jesus:

    “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” – Matthew 24:36.
