Harold Camping Oct 21 – Evangelist Harold Camping posted an audio recording on his Oakland radio ministry this week addressing why the world did not end Oct. 21.
He hinted at taking a few more cuts in the still unfolding future.
“Why didn’t Christ return on Oct. 21?” asks Camping, now 90 and recovering from a stroke.
“It seems embarrassing for Family Radio but God was in charge of everything.”
The Alameda resident has erroneously preached the world would end in 1994, and May 21 and Oct. 21 this year, citing mathematical formulas taken from the Bible.
Camping gained international attention in the months leading up to May 21, as Family Radio spent millions of dollars on billboards and RVs.
After the worldwide rolling earthquake failed to materialize May 21, his organization kept quiet leading up to Oct. 21.
His 5 minute, 45 second message on the Family Radio website hinted at predictions to come.
“I have been checking my own notes more closely than ever and I find there is other language in the Bible that we still have to take a look at very carefully,” he says.
The prognosticator also apologized for saying earlier this year that those who did not believe May 21 would be the Rapture could never be saved.
“I should not have said that.”
