Harold Camping, Reader's Digest, and Free Materials
In the back of the March 2006 edition of Reader's Digest (p. 207), there is an ad by Family Radio (not to be confused with Focus on the Family). What does it say?

God's law book, the Bible, gives us many wonderful and awesome truths. However, it also commands us to freely give these truths to others. In obedience to that command, Family Radio (Family Stations, Inc.) is making available, FREE, all of the literature that it has developed, through very careful studies of the Bible.

Some have been available at bookstores and on the Internet commercially, but are now offered without cost or obligation to anyone who wishes to know more about the important truths God teaches us in the Holy Book.

So, Family Radio is now distributing without charge the unorthodox teachings of Harold Camping. In this ad, they include free offers for The End of the Church Age ... And After, Wheat and Tares, and Time Has an End. Many of their books are also available in multiple languages. With the wide circulation of Reader's Digest, this is indeed a dangerous problem.

If you run into anybody who is listening to or reading Harold Camping, then I suggest you help them see the serious errors he preaches. Two good resources are:

1) James R. White, Dangerous Airwaves
2) J. Ligon Duncan, Should We Leave Our Churches?

God's law book, the Bible, gives us many wonderful and awesome truths. You're to stupid to not see in the bible that the world is going to end in 1994 so you need Harold Camping to tell you what the bible says.

The way I read this is they are having trouble selling books about the world ending in 1994.

This could be some indication that Camping's health is deteriorating or he started thinking about his mortality and wanted to get his materials out.

Judgement Day is indeed here...!
