Doomsday believer donates entire inheritance to Family Radio

KJV BibleImage by knowhimonline via FlickrAs depressing as this is. It only goes to show that if people who want to claim to be Christian and Love Christ with all their hearts, only makes sense to actually read the Bibles we are supposed to be reading. Stuff like this would not happen.  I find so many people who take a sentence here and there and only listen to a man telling them what to believe. Herald Camping does not know what he is talking about. He is what Jesus himself talked about being a false prophet. Many will come claiming that they know. Many will even say they are Christ. For those that want to believe. Please take the time and read your Bibles. Do not turn out like these people did.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- When the world didn't end on May 21, many people who had given up their earthly possessions were left with nothing.
But one believer never lived to see the day. She left nearly her entire estate -- around $300,000 -- to the group behind the failed prediction, leaving some family members out in the cold.
Eileen Heuwetter was shocked to find out that her aunt left the majority of her estate to Family Radio, the group responsible for the doomsday warnings that the world would end on May 21. She and her sister were each left $25,000 from their aunt's estate. The rest is going to Family Radio.
The network of Christian radio stations based in Oakland, Ca., is almost entirely funded by donations. According to IRS filings, the group brought in $18 million in contributions in 2009 alone.
Heuwetter, the executor of the will, knew how much her aunt loved the radio station and admired its leader, Harold Camping, who is viewed as a prophet by many of his followers.
While other family members insisted it was crazy to let her aunt give all that money to a radio station, Heuwetter didn't initially contest the conditions of the will. She knew little about the Christian radio station, but knew her aunt, Doris Schmitt, found comfort in it.
Schmitt had lived a tough life, struggling with alcoholism and losing her two children to drug addictions before dying alone at 78 on May 2, 2010 in her small home in Queens, New York.
"This was not a woman who had anything. She literally had Family Radio on day and night -- she went to bed with it and woke up to it," said Heuwetter. "That was all she had."
