A Review of Should We Leave Our Churches? A Biblical Response to Harold Camping
God’s people must always be alert to threats from those opposed to Christianity as well as from professing believers. Family Radio Network’s cofounder and president Harold Camping has created a huge controversy in his call for Christians to leave their local churches. He believes that today’s institutional church is apostate and that Christians can be continually fed by listening to his radio network programming.
The authors set forth an overview of what Camping is teaching. This is followed by a brief examination of major errors in his teaching.
The final twenty pages are devoted to examining scriptural teaching on the church. The authors realize that God’s people are sinners and are in the process of sanctification, which will be complete at glorification. They also realize Scripture’s clear, repeated teaching that God builds His church and will never leave nor forsake His bride, the church.
This volume is important in our modern day when misunderstanding abounds concerning the church and its important place in the world. Here is help to those pondering Mr. Camping’s teachings. It is also a handy resource for Christians when counseling those influenced by errant thinking.
