Camping's Campaign Continues

Harold Camping, the force behind Family Radio and the world-renowned Bible teacher, is now certain that the world will end on October 21, 2011. Camping became the subject of tremendous media attention when he falsely predicted that the rapture would occur on May 21, 2011 (after he had previously predicted that Jesus would return in 1994). After May 21 came and went without incident, Camping declared that a “spiritual judgment” took place on May 21 and that the visible end of all things will occur on October 21 of this year. In an audio message posted on Family Radio’s website, Camping now says, “We’ve learned that there is a lot of things that we didn’t have quite right,” yet he justifies his false prophecies by saying that should it have occurred, “We would not have been able to be used of [God] to bring about the tremendous event that occurred on May 21 of this year, which probably will be finished out on October 21 that’s coming very shortly.” He added, “That looks like it will be the final end of everything.” Camping went on to say that unbelievers will likely feel no pain or suffering during the rapture/judgment of God on October 21 because God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. For Christians, Camping said they will “quietly receive the new heaven and the new earth.” Time and time again Camping has proven himself to be a false prophet and should be regarded by such among the Christian community. His erroneous theology and order of events pertaining to the end times should in itself cause Christians to reject His ministry and refuse to support Family Radio.
