IS MR. CAMPING A BROTHER IN CHRIST?
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Cor. 11:13-15.
“Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not” Matt. 24:23-26.
Some who have written to me have suggested that Mr. Camping is a brother in Christ and that we should overlook his teachings and false prophecies. But I cannot and will not. The damage he has done to the cause of Christ is irreparable.
There are thousands around the world who believed him because he claimed what he believed is taught in the Bible. He has made a laughing stock of Christianity. Those who may have had some interest in Spiritual matters will conclude the Bible is not true.

Mr. Camping should shut up, close his Bible up, fold his ministry up, and give up all the money he has extorted from others. I expect Mr. Camping to adjust his teaching again to continue his ministry of deception. Some of us know a wolf when we see one, and we know demonic teaching when we hear it. In my opinion, Mr. Camping is both.
My advice is to stop interpreting the Bible from world events, or people who profess to have special insight into the Bible. We need to interpret world events from a correct division and understanding of the Scriptures. You must study it for yourself and learn how to rightly divide it. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15. You are commanded to do this… “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;” Ephesians 4:14.
No, we will not cut Mr. Camping any slack. He has brought reproach on my Bible, my Savior, my church, and my brothers in Christ. Also, many souls will be lost because of his twisted false teachings.
