Harold Camping Exclusive: Family Radio Founder Retires; Doomsday 'Prophet' No Longer Able to Work
By Luiza Oleszczuk | Christian Post Contributor

Harold Camping, who predicted Oct. 21 to be the day Christians would be caught up to heaven and that God would judge the world, said on Oct. 16 that he is no longer able to lead Family Radio Stations, Inc. or his ministry, and his wife has confirmed that the 90-year-old radio evangelist has retired, a documentarian close to Camping told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview.

Camping also said in a private conversation that day that nobody could know exactly when the time of the apocalypse would come, according to his interlocutor. That statement constitutes a radical change in his teachings, as Camping used to claim that the date of the end of the world is encoded in the Bible, and that he had found the way to read it through studying it closely for many years.

As you wander through the related stores on Christian Post's website, there is a call from Family Radio's announcer for funds to keep the operating budget in the black.

Camping reportedly spent $100 million on advertising to advance his predictions. They are cash poor and property rich. Maybe it is time to begin selling the stations to a Bible-teaching ministry who will point people back to Scripture.

Hos 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.


I wonder how soon he will sell the property and give the money back to those he duped.

That has been my prayer.

Richard Myers:
A Bible Answer is reporting that Family Stations Inc. employees manning the phones know nothing of Camping's "retirement".  In a conversation as late as this morning Camping and Family Radio have not informed employees that he is gone.
