Quit Your Church! 

It was bad enough when evangelical broadcaster Harold Camping falsely predicted the apocalypse. But his latest crusade really has Christians fuming.

With Camping gone, the only reason to turn to Family Radio may be its music and, let's face it, most people who enjoy that era of smooth sterility already have one foot in the grave. But if Camping's Biblical interpretations -- painstakingly laid out in several of his thick, left-brained books like Adam When? and Feed My Sheep -- end up as guidebooks for future Campers, the Church of Camping may end up being more than a momentary frown on the face of his detractors.

As for the true followers, they aren't especially concerned about succession. To them, Camping has been an instrument of God all along, and if God wants Family Radio to continue, He will find someone else to lead. "God has put that ministry on [Camping's] shoulders, and he's the one who has brought it forth," Morrell says. "Now I'm not saying that he's done it with his skills and wisdom. I'm saying God has used him. God has filled him with His spirit."
