Camping’s Last Stand

When his earlier prediction about the end of the world failed to materialize last May 21st, Harold Camping, President of Family Radio, recalculated and said that the Rapture (whisking away of the Church) would take place on Oct. 21.  Thankfully, there has not been much publicity for the new date, but some news outlets are reminding the public of this ill-advised date-setting.

 In the online “Who’s Who in Biblical Prophecy,” Camping is called a “bad apple,” because of previous failed predictions that Christ would return on September 6, 1994, and then again last May.

 Responsible prophecy teachers agree that we can not set a date for the Lord’s return.  He taught us that himself! 

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” – Matthew 24:36 (read verses 32-44).

 At this time Family Radio’s home page is totally devoted to Camping’s online book, We Are Almost There!

 Right after his failed prediction in May, Camping suffered a stroke, and he is now bed-ridden. Hopefully, after the 21st of this month, we will not hear from him again.

One Response to Camping’s Last Stand

  1. William Thompson says:

    Mr. Camping suffers from an acute case of bible scholar hubris like those who only see the bible as a book of knowledge and not a love letter from Our Precious Lord and Savior. His arrogance demanded that he demonstrate his superior knowledge of the bible. Instead he showed us that he really doesn’t have a clue. Micah 6:8 says to simply “…walk humbly with thy God” . Pride and arrogance and bible scholarship for it’s own sake seem to go hand in hand. Jesus , said “Unless you become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of God”. Also we read that “knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.” We can only pray that would-be date setters will be made wise by the foolishness of Mr. Camping.
