Family Radio Founder Harold Camping Repents, Apologizes for False Teachings

With his speech sounding somewhat slurred and labored, Family Radio Stations Inc. founder and chairman Harold Camping sought to address in a recent message why Christ failed to return on Oct. 21 as the Bible teacher had predicted. Camping confessed, after decades of falsely misleading his followers, that he was wrong and regrets his misdeeds.

In addition to attempting to correct his erroneous teachings on the Rapture and God's day of final judgment on the world, Camping, 90, also confessed, "incidentally," that he was wrong to claim that God had stopped saving people after May 21 – the date which God's so-called "spiritual" judgment had begun.

This is undoubtedly a radical shift for Camping, who has staunchly claimed since 1992 that he had discovered a special numerical system in the Bible that allowed him to calculate the exact dates of certain events, such as the Great Flood, the Crucifixion ...

Excellent, Sasquatch, I would suggest that folks listen to the short sermon by Gil Rugh on the subject of Dispensations.

It is a pity that this heretic doesn't retire from his false ways. For a person who has said he has studied the Bible for seventy years, Biblical scholar's date for rapture: May 21, 2011, Satan must have blinded him all this time, since he isn't a Christian.

Harry is going to find he got his numbers wrong apparently only his number is up. Numerology --- Part One and Numerology—Part Two and this is all that Harry is doing with a slightly different twist. Oh, if anyone didn't notice the world didn't end last month either. Harold Camping says the World is About to End - Epic Fail

Camping did not repent, as verified by his own daughter as well.

"Espinoza addressed the issue in her email: "The article posted yesterday explains that he (Camping) 'repented' of being a false teacher. Thankfully you wrote his statement below, so anyone can read it and see that the article is bogus. Read his statement again carefully. We are to wait on God. That is our stance as Christians.""

It is rare that false teachers repent, it was said that the World Wide Church of God gave up its false teachings, Worldwide Church of God -- Christian or Cult?.

As with Armstrongism, you probably can't teach that type of an old dog new tricks.

SA Listener, it's amazing how many people will stick to The Teflon Evangelists, because the truth rolls right past them.

Just to remind everyone, Harold Camping and May 21st Judgment Day

This article is not very good. If you actually listen to the audio (posted on the Family Radio site), Camping did not repent. He apologized only for a statement he made.

Camping: (1) blamed God, as usual, saying God could have ended the world but chose not to, and this is what Camping has done since May 21; and (2) said we needed to study the Bible more and be humble, which is what he says after a failed prediction (but not before one). (Also, Camping has never questioned his method of Bible study, which has led him to four or five wrong predictions and ought to be called into question.)

Note that Camping's web site leading up to Oct 21 said: "Sadly, as we have earnestly studied the Bible over these five months we have found verse after verse that supports and strengthens the conclusion that the Lord is no longer
saving sinners. He has finished that glorious work." This was removed from the site without explanation after Oct 21, and Family Radio has never explained this. I will send their entire statement to anyone who wants it.

We can laugh about yet another failed end of the world prediction, but Camping was saying that the day of salvation is over, which is much more serious. I'm surprised no one has called him out on this.

"Camping confessed, after decades of falsely misleading his followers, that he was wrong and regrets his misdeeds."

I don't see any confession of decades of misdeeds.

Repents implies he will not date fix again. We will see.
