Camping Countdown clock:
While driving back from North Carolina on Sunday, I listened to a lot of Family Radio. I know a lot of people simply love the music on Family Radio, and still listen, every day, despite Harold Camping. The broadcasting format as I listened in, appeared to be an hour or so of teaching or discussion followed by a half hour to an an hour of music.
One particular discussion I heard was simply interviews with Camping's followers, on how they converted to Family Radio (for lack of a better description), and how they're spreading the word about May 21, 2011. They were the emotional testimonies on how the Lord called them to Family Radio, complete with tears, new found purpose, certainty, and blessing. Of course, I also listened to a crackling AM radio signal of Catholic Answers for a bit, and heard sort of the same thing. I also listened to a plethora of other religious stations, and again heard a number of testimonies. I was reminded again of how much people love to talk about themselves. Well for Campings's folks, I guess they need to be encouraged to hang in there by hearing about other followers who are giving their all in these final weeks.
As far as I could tell, all the broadcasted discussion or teaching was fixated on May 21, 2011. But so is Family Radio music. We all know the hymn O Come O Come Emmanuel. Family Radio is now playing a version with different lyrics about judgment day. The familiar chorus has been altered in this way:
"Rejoice, Rejoice, Emmanuel" is now: "May twenty, first, two thousand eleven"
I searched all over the Internet to see if anyone has pulled this song off their airwaves. Apparently, only myself and a few others have heard it. For instance,
Anyone know where the song with "May 21" lyrics to "O Come Emmanuel" can be found? May Twenty One? Anyone know where I can find it to download? Or even who performed it? It has "May Twenty One" lyrics to the music from O Come Emmanuel...it sends chills! It pertains to Judgment Day in a few weeks! I want a copy to share with a friend, I heard it on the live familyradio audio feed but I'm not set up to record. I'm sure it will be a free song to have but it's just finding it!?!?!
I couldn't find it, so I wrote Family Radio about it. So far, no response. If anyone tracks it down, please let me know.
