    I’ve also been listening to Harold Comping for some time on radio in the greater New York market. I find him to be arrogant and dismissive. It takes some audacity to cry “fire!” in a crouded theater as he does with his claims of the end coming next year. It’s interesting that there is no accounting of the growing damage his message is having on the culture at large. American history as well as other world histories have suffered from these prophets of the end times w.r.t. the bible. There is always an undercurrent of malaise surrounding these proclimations. Even though we don’t like to admit it, there are times when ‘free speach’ needs to be quashed. If camping feels the way he does about his calculations about the ‘end times’ why doesn’t he just push a book or preach to his true believers instead of contaminating the airwaves as he does now?

    He continues to assert that since the Bible descends from the mouth of GOD everything in it is perfect and to be interpreted literally, except for the times he states that some biblical assertions cannot be interpreted or are alagorical. He waivers in and out of these interpretations at will in order to make whatever point he wants to at the time.

    Since it is simply an article of ‘faith’ that the bible descends from the mouth of GOD (obviously it was written by man, no one saw GOD writing it!)then any iterpretation of the bible bust simply be accepted as an article of ‘faith’ and nothing more. Where Camping is mistaken and dangerous, is he is taking the subjective ‘truth’ of the bible and biblical predictions and trying to bring them in the objective truth of the real world. It is after all a subjective ‘truth’ that if you fall off a cliff god will sweep you into heaven. It is an objective truth that you will likely die and wind up in a pine box.

    I will be so happy when the scourge of ‘Family Radio’ and it’s attendant prophacies are destroyed by events in the real world.

    Good comments policy…however, it will weed out about 90% of my participation 😉

    I would love to have the words to a song Don Norman used to sing called “Do Right”
    Do right, do right, because it’s right to do. Do right, do right, the Lord is watching you……
