Camping leaves the Prediction Camp

November 1, 2011 Leave a comment

I saw this article today- http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/harold-camping-quitting-prediction-business-145931855.html and my reaction was “Thank God.” It’s about time Mr. Camping  gave this up. I’ve written a couple of posts about FamilyRadio’s  former head (you can search my blog for “harold camping”).

In a 5 min. message on their website he admits that they need some more humility before the Lord and says that they have to be very careful not to dictate to God what He should do or when He should do it. He is God and He is in control. He said God will reveal truth to us in His time. He says “We are simply learning, and sometimes it’s painful to learn.” He mentioned that there was a level of embarrassment for Family Radio through their ordeal. He also admits in his message, “Oh Lord, I don’t know anything. Lord, You teach me.  And that’s the attitude that has to be a part of each one of us.” He also apologized for saying that people who did not believe that the rapture would occur on May 21 were not saved. “I should not have said that, and I apologize for that.”

Well, that’s a far different tune than previously stating over and over again that the rapture would occur on certain dates (possibly even 20, said one follower)  “beyond the shadow of a doubt.”

Is he really done predicting? I hope so. I still feel for those who gave up everything on this falsity. 80 million dollars could have gone to much better uses!
