End Of The World For Harold Camping's Voice On Family Radio

Posted: 28 Sep 2018 06:42 AM PDT

Five years after his death, Family Stations Family Radio Christian network
is dropping the last remnants of founder Harold Camping as part of a
movement to reestablish connections with other churches and Christian

Camping, well known for his multiple end of the world proclamations, also
regularly preached that that the institutional churches of all
denominations had gone apostate meaning they had veered too far away from
their true principles and that the faithful should leave those churches.
Now as the network continues to resurrect itself in the wake of the failed
doomsday predictions that led to Family Radio selling off their big FM
signals in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore/Washington and Tampa.

Christian Post reports that Family Radio will drop all remaining airings of
Campings programs after October 7. Tom Evans, who succeeded Camping as
president, told the site that Rather than dwell in the past, its time for
us to move on and come into today. What can we do today as a ministry to
encourage the Body of Christ? And thats really what were focusing our
attention on. Were now turning from being critical of the church to now how
can we embrace and encourage the church of Jesus Christ here in this world.

the addition of these personalities to anchor our mornings, I’m confident
The Wake Up Show is going to shake things up.”
