No More Salvation?

By Dr. Ken Matto

Luke 19:13 (KJV) And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

Well here we go again. I thought that once the Camping cult became defrocked May 22, 2011 because their prophecy of the end of the world did not materialize, that they would recede to a cave somewhere and repent of their evil teachings. Some did repent and some even went back to church and guess what, they didn’t lose their salvation, nor did the wrath of God strike them. There is one major arm of the Campingites which have now morphed into a new cult which is headed by a man named Chris McCann of Pennsylvania. They continue to propagate two new heresies through their E-Bible Fellowship website.

The first heresy is that they have set a new date for the return of Christ. They have set, Wednesday October 7, 2015, as their new date. They still insist on building their date setting on Harold Camping’s false and flawed biblical calendar which has been proven wrong many times over and the fact that we are still here makes it obvious that the whole thing was one complete error, from Dan to Beersheba.

This new group was so steeped in the teachings of Harold Camping that now they find it impossible to repent of his heresy and go back to real Bible study. Chris McCann stood before many people as some type of authority and his minions banked on every word that the Lord was returning May 21, 2011. So instead of repenting of evil date setting and all these heretical teachings, Chris has decided that he cannot go back to being a regular guy. He has a psychological need to be a “somebody.” The sad fact is that the “somebody” he made himself is as heretical as Harold Camping was, if not worse which leads me into the second major and serious lie that they are teaching.

The second heresy and their major teaching is that there is no more salvation. They claim that all the elect of God were saved by May 21, 2011 and as a result, there is no more salvation. Simultaneously they also teach that Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011 and that we are living in the day of Judgment now.

John 3:18 (KJV) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:36 (KJV) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Living in a day of Judgment is nothing new. In both John 3:18 and 36, we read that those who do not believe are both condemned and have the wrath of God abiding on them. So all unbelievers are in a state of condemnation right now. If an unbeliever dies, they will then face the Judgment Seat of Christ on the last day. They will be judged and cast into eternal hell. (By the way the McCann cult teaches annihilation because Camping taught it)

John 5:24 (KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Those who are the Elect of God and have already been saved, are living in a state of grace and as soon as their physical body dies, they go to be with the Lord. So the unbelievers live under eternal death and the believer lives under eternal life. So these things are not strange teachings but the question remains is Judgment day a day or is it a long period of time?

John 5:28-29 (KJV) Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, {29} And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

John 5:28-29 teaches that there will be one general resurrection and both believers and unbelievers will be raised simultaneously. John 6:40 (KJV) And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. Notice that John 6:40 states openly that these things will happen on one day. The word “day” in the Greek is “hemera” which speaks of either sun up till sun down or a 24 hour day, but never a long period of time in the singular form. So if Judgment Day happened on May 21, 2011, it was sure quiet and nobody on this earth knew that it took place.

The idea that there is a long time period for Judgment Day can be traced back to the Seventh Day Adventists from which Camping drew his Judgment day material from. When the day of Judgment did not happen on October 20, 1844, the Seventh Day Adventists claimed that it was a not a final Judgment but Jesus just went into a different chamber and started judging the churches. What they did was try to save face by redefining the Judgment Day that it was spiritual and not physical.

Enter the Camping cult via Family Radio. When May 21, 2011 rolled around and nothing happened, some woman handed Camping a note that the judgment was not physical but spiritual. Camping did the same thing the Seventh Day Adventists did, to save face, he claimed it was not a physical judgment but a spiritual judgment. For 10 years Camping taught the end of the world and in 5 minutes changed his entire belief system based on a note some woman passed to him. However, the Bible does not teach a spiritual judgment on the last day. When Judgment Day comes, all the world will know because every eye will see Him coming on the clouds of glory.

Revelation 1:7 (KJV) Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

How much plainer can this verse be that when the Lord returns, every eye will see Him and all those who are unsaved shall wail because the end has finally come. In the first part of this verse we are given another view of the second coming of Christ. Daniel was given this picture in his night vision. (Dan 7:13 KJV) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. When the Lord Jesus Christ returns, He is going to return on the clouds of glory. This may have allusion to the Shekinah glory cloud which followed the Israelites in the desert wanderings. Some even believe that when the Lord returns, He will be returning with clouds of believers. Revelation 19 shows us that when the Lord returns that the army of believers will be following Him. We are assured in this verse that when He does return, that the entire world is going to see it. Since the world is round and there are 24 time zones, this second coming is going to be a miracle so everyone in the world is going to behold it.

It is also told us that those who pierced Him would see Him, along with all the kindreds of the earth shall wail. The word “kindreds” carries with it the meaning of “peoples or nations.” The second part of this verse has language similar to Zechariah 12:10 which speaks about the nation mourning for Christ. (Zec 12:10 KJV) And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. However, in the Revelation passage, all the nations of the earth are wailing because of Him. The reason they are wailing is because the day of Judgment has arrived and Him, who the unbelievers have scorned, realize that they must now stand for Judgment. When Christ opens the sixth seal in Revelation 6:12, the people of the earth are looking for the rocks to hide them but that will be to no avail. This is why the world is wailing or lamenting, because they know the end has come.

So there is no question in our minds that when Judgment Day happens, it is going to be quite noisy and not a spiritual judgment but a physical Judgment.

Now to the question of is there salvation still happening? The answer is an unequivocal YES.

Matthew 24:14 (KJV) And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Mark 13:10 (KJV) And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

The question we must ask is when will the preaching of the Gospel be completed? Matthew 24:14 above gives us the plain answer. Before the end comes, the Gospel must be preached in all the world, unto all nations. Mark 13:10 confirms that the Gospel must go to the entire world and then comes the end.

Isaiah 62:11 (KJV) Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

God had confirmed this all the way back in Isaiah 62:11 that the Lord will proclaim the Gospel unto the end of the world. 750 years before Christ was born, God gave information that the Gospel will be preached till the end of the world. If no one is being saved, then what would be the purpose of preaching the Gospel? Romans 10:17 (KJV) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 states that faith, or in other words, salvation comes through the preaching of the Word. The words “hearing” in this verse is the Greek word “akuow” which means “hearing with understanding.” This means that the word, when preached, will save the Elect of God.

1 Corinthians 15:24 (KJV) Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

In 1 Corinthians 15:24, we have the ultimate end of all things. Judgment day is in the past and now the Lord Jesus Christ delivers the completed eternal church to God the Father and with this signals the end. This did not happen on May 21, 2011, neither was the completion of the preaching of the Gospel to all nations, even though we are close because by means of the Internet, the Gospel is in every country in the world at present and we do not know how many more Elect need to be saved but they must be saved through the proclaiming of the Word of God as we read in Romans 10:17. I asked one of the minions who follow this cult if he has ever spoken to missionaries or even contacted some ministries to find out if people are still being saved. As a good mindless cult adherent, he never responded but I can offer a reason. Just like the Campingites from 2001-2011 were not allowed to talk to any church people or any saved people in general because that would mean going outside from under the authority of Camping. The same is true with this group, if they were to venture out and actually think for themselves, they would find out that God is still saving and then they could leave that cult and dedicate the rest of their lives to sending forth the Gospel. My, to check out if salvation is still taking place could be done by one simple e-mail to Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago. People are getting saved there every day and that would be enough to reject the heresy that God is no longer saving.

BUT I can just hear the cult members say something to this effect, “They are not saved but they think they are saved.”

It’s also amazing that the previous verse, in Revelation 3:9, God speaks of those from "the synagogue of Satan," and synagogues said in John 16:2 are spiritually synagogues of Satan, administered by men who have never been saved, but who thought they were saved.

The sorry thing is that those in cults always think that they are saved and that everybody else is unsaved. During the Camping cult years of 2001-2011, I was accused of being unsaved many times and as you can see with the Chris McCann/E-Bible Fellowship cult, they have adopted the same mindset and are too blinded to see they are heading down a pathway of eternal destruction.

1. No one knows when the Lord is returning.
2. Salvation will continue till the last day and then the end comes, not before.
3. Judgment Day is going to be a day, not a long period of time.
4. The Gospel will be preached to every nation on earth and then comes the end.
