-Camping Now Says The End Is Coming on October 21

May 21 came and went without any announcement by Harold Camping. We are still here but now he is claiming that the real date was October 21 all along and May21 was just the beginning of the end:

“We’ve always said October 21 was the day. The only thing we didn’t understand was the spirituality of May 21. We’re seeing this as a spiritual thing happening rather than a physical thing happening. The timing, the structure, the proofs, none of that has changed at all.”

Camping introduced the new date on his radio show on Monday claiming that God decided to be merciful and not bring physical destruction over the next 5 months but that it would be all over on October 21, 2011.

In spite of the obvious May 21 failure, Camping accepted no responsibility nor admitted any wrong:

“I don’t have any responsibility. I’m only teaching the Bible. I’m telling … this is what the Bible says. I don’t have spiritual rule over anybody … except my wife as the head of the household.”

He also indicted that his organization would not be spending any more $money on billboards and ads promoting the new date which he now says was the  real date all along:

“We’re not going to be passing out tracts. We’re not going to put up any more billboards. We’re not going to be advertising in any way. The world has been warned. We did our little share and the media picked it up. But now the world has been told, it’s under judgment.”

Response: I can’t believe the arrogance of this guy. Definitely not a humble servant like Jesus taught his followers to be. He is completely unable to admit that he was wrong.

First he writes a book and claims that it is all coming down in 1994. Then when that one doesn’t work he claims that the real date was May 21, 2011. Now he is saying that he knew it was October 21 all along? Amazing!

He has been wrong twice now but twists the truth instead?:

“We’ve always said October 21 was the day”

No he didn’t!

Worse yet he defames the Bible. By saying “this is what the Bible says” he is actually blaming his failures on the Word of God. Search the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation and you will never find May21 or October 21 or any other date for the end of the world.

Hundreds of followers find their lives in disarray without even so much as an apology or a simple ‘sorry’ from Camping. His latest pronouncement shows that he is delusional at best or just another false teacher taking advantage of folks at worst.

I would bet on ‘delusional’ except now he plans to keep the money he has taken from his contributors and not waste it on the new October 21 date. That tells me that he doesn’t even completely believe it himself. Otherwise he would ‘put (the rest of) his money where his mouth is’. Therefore he is false teacher and this is the last time that he will get any attention or publicity here.          *Top
