The Difference Between a Bible Obsession and a CHRISTIAN
Harold Camping is a Bible Obsessed man but he is NOT a Christian. People are often fooled to believe that a person who studies the Bible is a follower of Christ. This is one of the main ways cults hook victims. The Bible is the “tool” but that does not mean that the person teaching is a Christian!
Harold Camping is “Bible obsessed” and I am going to show you how a Bible Obsession can be unhealthy
Here is Camping's quotes about himself
“ I decided to make the Bible my university. I decided I would dedicate my life to the constant study of this book. I have spent 54 years of my life in the study of the Bible”
Do not mistake his "Bible obsession" for a love of God and others. He does not say he loves Christ. His Obsession is the End of the World.
What you will notice on Harold Camping's program is the after 54 years of studying the Bible the word “love” is missing from his program and his followers.
Harold Camping is not a minister, theologian, pastor or priest
He is a man with a Bible obsession and this can be deadly to the follower in a cult. A Christian is a follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Harold Camping does not follow the teachings of Jesus Christ; he “Searches for Bible messages”
He supply his own weird Bible answers(which appear GODLY) on his TV show
Camping does not speak of the love God, he speaks of ONLY Judgment and hatred of Churches. This is his Bible obsession!
THE MIND CONSUMED WITH “ONLY” THE BIBLE IS A DANGEROUS THING
Let's enter the mind of the Bible obsessed person
Let's go back a few years, 2 young guys (20 years old...one is me) were gladly serving God and visiting sick people in the hospital. We met a great patient(let's call him Tom) who had a great personality. Tom said he was a Christian and was in the hospital for anxiety( he stated that the doctors would not release him)
He was a Bible lover and we had great visits with him over 4 weeks
WE DEMAND TOM”S RELEASE!
Tom was very upset that the doctors would not release him and we had enough, we spoke to the psychiatrist and demanded Tom's release. The doctor very boldly told us we would be asked to leave the hospital if we made more demands on patient releases
Here is how the scene played out
Christians: Why are you holding this man against his will, he is obviously fine!
Doctor: Are you 2 doctors?
Christians: We feel he is being held because he reads his Bible all day!
Doctor: The Bible is THE problem...HE HAS A BIBLE obsession ! LIKE MANY IN THE PSYCH WARD!
Later we learned that many mentally ill people have a bible obsession
Harold Camping is obsessed with numbers. In Camping's mind
7= completion 23= Judgment..etc (The Bible says no such thing)
Harold Camping mixes numbers meaning with the Bible and it attracts the unstable

3 WEEKS LATER WE MEET JESUS?
We ran into Tom 3 weeks later and had a great lunch with him. But He was sad to tell us that he was dying soon
Tom: I just came to say good bye to you guys. You are really nice guys and I could not tell you in the hospital but...
"I am Jesus and I will be 33 next month so I must die"
Over the years I have discovered that Tom is a Schizophrenic. Often these people have an unhealthy Bible Obsession
Harold Camping is not a Christian,he has a Bible Obsession and his own radio and television program to promote his agenda
The Bible is the word of God but not everyone reading or interpreting it is a follower of the Jesus
HOW MANY JESUS'?
A Bible Obsessed man from the 1960's. You will probably call him crazy today but he was a “normal” Bible Obsessed person who influenced many. He was seldom seen without a Bible and was obsessed with the End of the world (like Harold Camping)
Here is how he ended up many years later
The danger of Harold Camping is that he is playing with the mentally ill who follow his show. There are may unstable and mentally ill people who will be drawn to this end of the world message of May 21. They are obsessed with Camping's smooth voice. I consider Harold Camping the worst of the cult leaders. I truly believe he does not care one bit that he will be wrong on Saturday. His followers (of which many are mentally ill) will be confused when they do not disappear Saturday
lets pray that they will not do anything scary. After Saturday I am sure they still will not abandon Harold Camping
I believe Harold Camping has an obsession with the "End of the World" His madness is not that he believes in God but with his "obsession with Judgment day"
Camping states that it took him 54 years to "figure out" Judgment day. Does that sound like Christianity or the words of Jesus?
To the Harold Camping followers you will never hear this on Open Forum but here is the Command of Jesus
John 13:34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another
