Harold Camping Admits He Was Wrong

The Christian Post reports:
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.

The headline of the article actually reads that "Harold Camping Repents..." Quite honestly, in reading the entire article, I didn't see any actual repentance, only admission of being wrong. Nevertheless, for a man entrenched in false prophecies and teachings, we ought to praise God for this small step and continue to pray for this aged, deceived man.


  1. I'm curious about a claim he made that not a lot of people have talked about. Camping stated, pre-May non-Rapture, that it was not possible for a true Christian to not believe that the Rapture was absolutely coming that day and, further, that this was the test of a true Christian.

    So what does he say now, that apparently his standard of being a true Christian is the inability to not be wrong?

  2. Amen,

    I agree we need to continue praying for Pastor Camping and his followers as well. This is a great start and really it, in my opinion, seems to have come from his heart. Maybe he has finally come to his senses on setting dates. Let's pray for that and more. Frankly, my heart goes out to him because he was/is so decieved. Hopefully the light has come on for him and now prayfully the Holy Spirit will lead him to the full truth. That's my prayer for him as I'd really like to think he'll be in Heaven. Same for his followers, that's my prayer for them as well. That they all will see God's Truth and be saved from wrath. Not to mention more embarassment for them.
