I see where people have searched whether or not Camping was ever in the military. No, he was not. During WW2 he was in college at Berkley. After leaving college, he worked in a few fields, including construction, then somehow got into broadcasting.
It is interesting to note that Camping was a member of a Christian church, at one time. I do not see how his teachings, on Family Radio, can be considered Christian, or even Camping being considered one, due to the content of his message and his methods. He uses numerology, to make his end time prophecies, for starters, and that is certainly a non-Christian practice.
Just a quick update. More to follow!
