Family Radio Is Wrong! The teaching of Harold Camping is a Heresy

Harold Camping has claimed that the era of the Church age has come to an end. He has begun a campaign to tell people to leave their Churches no matter how faithful to the gospel their Church may be. This teaching is false!

Harold Camping is president of Family Stations Incorporated or Family Radio for short. These articles and this site are meant to show that the teaching of Harold Camping is wrong! And it  must be stopped. Without an outcry from the programs, listeners and all that care for the corporate church and the Bride of Christ, many will fall under this false teaching.

This is a report on God's sovereign grace and mercy and providence during the ongoing outreach to bring the reformed gospel throughout the 32 States and 141 cities of Mexico. During the days of 4/30 to 5/17 we visited 7 States in Mexico with the precious gospel of salvation.. The states visited were: Morelos, Mexico, Puebla, Queretaro, Veracruz, Tlaxcala and Guanajuato.

                      FROM THE MAIL BAG 

Comments = The news of 'The End Of The Church Age' was more of a shock to me than the September 11th WTC crisis, and I continue to be amazed by after shocks within the Christian community.
I notice a distinct division (even rudeness) among otherwise warm and forgiving brothers and sisters.
Before everyone could meet, enjoy great food and fellowship. Now there's a hovering cloud of hostility that continues to smolder as much as the burning ashes of the World Trade Center.
I see people taking sides and in some cases contending for a new doctrine, instead of the Faith of our Fathers.
The Church and the Bible has been replaced with the promotion of a Radio Station and Teacher with 'New' dogmatic view-points, and the cold notion that' anyone who disagrees is fired!'
My thinking on the 'Depart Out' teachings are that they hinge dangerously on 'Private interpretation'
Still there's lessons to be learned in this crisis - in the way God's people respond. This in itself is showing me the true character of those who for years have gathered under a 'safe Christian Haven' of (not necessarily the Bible) but Family Radio itself, knowledgeable /untouchable / infallible
I now see the need for serious self-examination. Have I been too content with my spiritual walk just because I listen constantly to Family Radio?
It takes real Christian guts to 'contend for the faith' and just stand, especially when that means standing from within against the powerhouse that Family Radio has become.
I also notice that not everyone (at Family Radio) is so eager to quit although they may (secretly) not agree with the current teachings. The verse 'They loved the praise of men more than the praise of God,' comes to mind.
But the Lord doesn't need Family Radio to replace the Church any more than he needed a wooden ramp to walk on water.

Comments = Family Radio was a great ministry. It is sad to see what has happened but Mr. Camping has fallen for exactly what he preaches against; as we all can see; yes it seems that the "Emperor has no clothes" We must pray for the restoration of Mr. Camping and pray that his soul is indeed saved. God's will will be done today Mr. Camping is being used by Satan. Please pray.


Comments = While listening, reluctantly, to Camping last night (too lazy to get out of bed and shut the radio off) I thought of a little couplet I learned as a young man:  "Wonderful things in the Bible I see, things that were put there by you and by me."

The fearful thing is to ponder where it could all end, as Camping gets "further light" on passages of Scripture.  Now we have King Agrippa representing Christ, the wicked and cruel Pontius Pilate representing God---where will his perverted mind take him next?

"Lord, deliver us from this wicked teacher!"


 was OPC
Comments = OPC was just the 4th church we were forced out of because we didn't believe in free will salvation, and a 1000 year reign of Christ on earth. What church do we go to?  If you can find us one that uses the Bible alone and in its entirety as its authority, let me know.
Suzanne, Welcome to the world! We personally had to MOVE about an hour away to find a faithful church. It can be done but it must be your number one priority. If you move to Akron Ohio I can show you 1.

John Calvin in his commentary on 1 Corithinian 1:2 particularly where God through Paul says about the church at Corinth,  "Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints...."  Calvin writes,  "It is a dangerous temptation to think that there is no church at all where perfect purity is not seen" and as Calvin went on to say - "the man that is possessed with this notion, must necessarily in the end withdraw from all others, and look upon himself as the only saint in the world, or set up a peculiar sect in company w/a few hypocrites".

When should a person leave a church?


Leaving a church is not something that should be done lightly. Too many people abandon churches for petty reasons. Disagreements over simple matters of preference are never a good reason to withdraw from a sound, Bible-believing church. Christians are commanded to respect, honor, and obey those whom God has placed in positions of leadership in the church (Heb.13:7, 17).

However, there are times when it becomes necessary to leave a church for the sake of one's own conscience, or out of a duty to obey God rather than men. Such circumstances would include:

If heresy on some fundamental truth is being taught from the pulpit  (Arminism, speaking in tongues), (Gal. 1:7-9).

If the leaders of the church tolerate seriously errant doctrine from any who are given teaching authority in the fellowship (Rom. 16:17).

If the church is characterized by a wanton disregard for Scripture, such as a refusal to discipline members who are sinning blatantly (1 Cor. 5:1-7).

If unholy living is tolerated in the church (1 Cor. 5:9-11).

If the church is seriously out of step with the biblical pattern for the church (2 Thess. 3:6, 14).

If the church is marked by gross hypocrisy, giving lip service to biblical Christianity but refusing to acknowledge its true power (2 Tim. 3:5).

This is not to suggest that these are the only circumstances under which people are permitted to leave a church. There is certainly nothing wrong with moving one's membership just because another church offers better teaching or more opportunities for growth and service. But those who transfer their membership for such reasons ought to take extreme care not to sow discord or division in the church they are leaving. And such moves ought to be made sparingly. Membership in a church is a commitment that ought to be taken seriously.



The "DEPART OUT" heresy has infiltrated every aspects of FAMILY RADIO'S operation. The short wave department is responsible for sending people into sin. The print department has aided Mr. Camping in teaching thousands that Satan is the HEAD in every church throughout the world. The Internet department has sent the teaching into the homes of many where they can learn how to follow the sin into its many facets. The programming department bends over backwards denying preachers their titles as the Bible defines them and program day and night the heresy for thousands to hear. The t.v department is now on the same playing field as Benny Hinn and his network guru's. The people who answer the phone and stuff envelopes have the blood of many on their hands as they put the "Depart Out" tract into the envelopes.

Employees of FAMILY RADIO should join the ranks of Mickey Ventura, Pastor Otero and many others and leave the station. Even I had to stay in a False Gospel church for a while till I had done all I could then I left

Many should cut back on the hours they listen to FAMILY RADIO, as the teaching is almost on as much as anything else.

GALATIONS 1:6 ¶ I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
