  • The End of the World According to Harold Camping (Part 5)

    from W. Robert Godfrey Apr 26, 2011 Category: Articles

    Harold Camping has not only deserted the church, he seems also to have deserted Christ and his Gospel. In his online book The End of the Church…and After, he began to reject a number of teachings on salvation common in Reformed churches.

  • Young Women, Idolatry & the Powerful Gospel

    from Tim Challies Apr 26, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    We are all inveterate worshipers — it’s just something we do without thinking about it. Worshiping is part of our nature because God created us to worship Him, and, by doing so, we bring both Him and ourselves deep pleasure (Pss. 16:11; 149:4). The world is full of worshipers, and some of them actually worship God. But the truth is that most of us worship idols. Keep Reading

  • Why was Jesus raised from the dead?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Apr 24, 2011 Category: Articles

    It is a good thing to enter into the pathos of the disciples during those dark days between the crucifixion and the resurrection.  It is easy for us to forget that they haven’t read the rest of the story. We live on this side of the resurrection, and its explication in Scripture. We have Truth revealed. They had only anguish and uncertainty.  They had lost their Lord. Their trouble, however, was not ultimately that they missed Jesus. Their heartache was rooted in something more substantial than personal sadness. Keep Reading
  • The End of the World According to Harold Camping (Part 4)

    from W. Robert Godfrey Apr 23, 2011 Category: Articles

    Camping’s calculations and allegorical readings eventually led him to a truly heretical conclusion: that the age of the church was over and that all Christians were required to separate themselves from all churches. I had rather admired him over the years for not making himself a minister without proper education. I had never dreamed that he would instead abolish the pastoral office and the church. Keep Reading

    Camping’s knowledge of Bible verses and confidence led many to follow him as their only leader and teacher. He had become their guru. It is interesting how often people seek someone to follow unquestioningly. This reality has been called the Fuehrerprinzip or the leader principle. Whether a false prophet or a political leader or an intellectual authority, many people want someone whom they can follow simply and blindly. For some listeners to Family Radio, Camping became their leader or guru. Keep Reading
