I listened to Family Radio years ago and really liked it. It had nice music when I felt like traditional hymns, it seemed to have great teaching, I liked the open forums, and had even enrolled in a correspondence course with them. But, it seemed like Harold Camping started going beyond a strict adherence to scripture, to almost an extreme interpretation. I'd let this all leave my mind until I was reminded of it all the other day. Well, I'd met a new friend and we met on a non-Christian pretense and were excited to discover we were both believers. In discussion though, I discovered he left his church at the urging of Harold Camping, although he had another initial reason for wanting to leave. I was totally amazed that this guy is actually urging (commanding?) his listeners to leave churches. In addition, Baptists are among some of his specific denominations he specifically targets due to "free will". So I started thinking about this. At first I thought "well, they are gathering in groups on Sunday to listen to the radio which includes singing hymns, and hearing preaching." But, something hit me... if they leave a Church, they are no longer tithing or offering gifts, where do these money and resources go? Do you starting tithing to Family Radio? The more I think about this situation, the more uneasy I feel that Camping is getting so powerful and progressing past teaching. It's almost like an assault on the Church, with a specific campaign against certain denominations. Does anyone have anymore insight/feelings on this situation?
