Harold Camping, the Family Radio minister who inaccurately predicted that the world would experience Judgment Day last May 21, has suffered a stroke.
Camping, the 89-year-old head of the Oakland-based evangelical media company, suffered a stroke on Thursday night after a radio broadcast and was taken to a local hospital, according to a message posted on a Family Radio-oriented Yahoo group by Charlie Menut, station manager of Family Radio affiliate WFME.
Harold Camping doomsday prediction record: 0-2 Harold Camping "flabbergasted" by non-Rapture Apocalypse ... uhm, when?
A neighbor of Camping told the Oakland Tribune that the Alameda minister was taken by ambulance from his house Thursday night.
The unnamed neighbor said she had spoken with Camping's wife Shirley on Friday and was told the radio evangelist is doing "OK," although his speech is "a little bit slurred."
Family Radio is expected to give an update on Camping's condition on Monday.
The fundamentalist minister had led his Christian followers to believe Saturday, May 21, 2011, marked the Rapture and the countdown to Judgment Day.
I’m still waiting for 21 October 2011 to arrive!
God will not be mocked.
Looking at that photo and I can’t help thinking about a wingnut.
May 21 may have been some kind of “inflection point” in his own life, not in that of the entire world.
The man is 89 years old. I don’t wish him ill at all, but I believe he stressed himself out doing this global warning.
He should have retired 10 years ago.
Maybe it’s G-d’s way of telling him to just shut up.
Just don’t mix up you eschatology with scatology, and you’ll be okay...............
There were articles posted here since before the week-end that said he had a stroke, then the next day another article was posted, then the next day another was posted, then the next day still another article and now, after the week-end, we read he had another stroke.
A stroke a day for about 5 days will eventually take it's toll.
Or, posters could do searches before posting the same article over and over and over and over and over...
I mean, how can the world possibly exist without this guy 'splainin' everything to all us "sheep"?
He was not mocking God IMHO. However, God’s word does say that man will not know the hour. We must be ready though.
“I dont wish him ill at all, but I believe he stressed himself out doing this global WARMING.
He should have retired 10 years ago.”
Yeah, I say that about Algore all the time....
This is pretty interesting. Slightly as obvious as the situations that befell various leaders of Israel who sought to divide Jerusalem.
God said, “Okay pal. You want a Rapture? How about — to paraphrase the US Army slogan — ‘A Rapture Of One’?”
Bet he didn’t see that one coming.
Maybe it was a rupture!
Camping is into MACRO predictions, not MICRO ones.
This turn of events should really force him to step down the helm of Family Radio once and for all.
Hopefully, someone more reasonable can take over.
It used to be such a great ministry (one of the few, and perhaps the only radio station in the country that still plays the old hymns of faith ).
I still listen to their music but quickly change the station when Camping comes on.
Misguided though he is, prayers for his recovery and return to God’s true way, and that he witness accordingly.
From rapture to rupture!
Amen. I hope Family Radio survives. They have the best Christian music on the airwaves.
I used to listen to him on the radio, he does have an amazing grasp of Gods word. Now we all know one shouldn’t go around picking dates. But his recollection and understanding of the bible was quite astounding as I remember it. I was brought to the true saving faith in Christ because of him (after hearing him on the radio preach that Salvation wasn’t works based but rather an act of Grace). So, I am grateful he was there and wish him healing.
