Re: “Quit Your Church!

Here is one more news story where this author 'Katy"deliberately sensationalizes and downright changes the facts to gain reader interest. I don't know why I never get use to it, I just can't I guess, it makes me want to vomit even if they are against something I too am against. The end NEVER justifies the means in reporting what is supposed to be the honest truth. In this case it's not even deception toward some political goal or anything, these writers just pick and angle (in this case an attempt to destroy a man's reputation) and they go for it, no holds barred. If it were someone else an author of such low moral character might be on the losing end of a very costly lawsuit. Just to name but two of many outright untruths in this piece consider where the stations are alleged by her to belong to Harold Camping, and also where she alleges that folks gave every last dime they had including cashed in retirement holdings TO Harold Camping. This is such a lie! Harold Camping does not own the stations and he has NEVER EVER taken a single dime. Harold only donates to Family Radio himself, freely giving of his time without salary to the totally non profit radio network. How many 80 year olds can say that they completely forfeited ever having a retirement and instead just kept working FULL time FOR ZERO wages? Also she insinuates that Camping was thrown out of a congregation as a result of the "1994?" prediction in fact without otherwise knowing, someone would surely assume that she was referring to the very same congregation he had been with at the time of the 1994? prediction which is totally not the case. The fact is that YEARS prior to 1994 Camping had belonged to a Christian Reformed Church in Alameda whose elders changed the churches' rules about who could teach Sunday school. When the new rules stopped Camping from being eligible to teach, he was forced to leave the congregation he loved if he wanted to keep teaching. Since he was sure it was his calling to teach he felt he had no other choice. Many in his Sunday School classes also left that church and since there were no other churches dedicated to teaching the Bible ALONE and in it's entirety anywhere nearby they all simply formed a new congregation by necessity. This is the congregation that Camping belonged to in '94 and he did not upset the elders and deacons there and kept attending and teaching there despite what this article seems to imply. Sorry for my poor writing skills, If no one else was going to speak up about this I felt I at least should.
