The fate of all false prophets
Time and time again, Harold Camping used his world-wide audience to deceive people and to speak lies in the name of God. He used his voice over the radio to make end times predictions that he said the bible guaranteed would come to pass, and they did not. Now, having suffered a stroke, he just may have lost his ability to ever again conduct his radio program. Coincidence? You decide.
“If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 13:1-3
The radio preacher who sparked an international media frenzy by predicting the end of the world last month has suffered a stroke. Harold Camping was rushed to hospital from his Alameda, California home on Thursday night.
The 89-year-old has survived the stroke – but there are fears that the gravelly, famous voice he used to make his predictions to millions around the world will never be the same.
The radio evangelist and president of the network of radio stations known as Family Radio, spent up to $100million over seven years predicting the Rapture. His followers put up billboards, with many spending thousands of their own money in passing his message on.
Camping was openly mocked by talk show hosts and comedians, and religious leaders blasted him as a false prophet. Non-believers and Christians alike made fun of his message and protests and demonstrations were held against his prediction – many of which turned into parties as the date approached. source – Daily Mail
