How about, "I am a senile old crank, don't listen to me." That should work.

If he is sincere, I commend him. It takes a big and not proud man to admit he was so wrong and he didn’t understand what was being said.

Didn’t his ministry take in something like $18Million in donations? Wasn’t there one person who committed suicide on the May 21st date and another lady who killed her animals and tried to kill her kid due to this guy?

News: 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.

Camping: "Why didn't Christ return on Oct. 21? It seems embarrassing for Family Radio. But God was in charge of everything. We came to that conclusion after quite careful study of the Bible. He allowed everything to happen the way it did without correction. He could have stopped everything if He had wanted to....

....Incidentally, I have been told that I said back in May that people who did not believe that May 21 should not be the rapture date, probably had not been saved. I should not have said that, and I apologize for that.

I think the news is reading more into his speech than is really there....

Having read this statement it sounds to me like he is only apologizing for saying people wouldn’t be saved after his May rapture date. He doesn’t sound very apologetic about the rest of his predictions - only that he is still “learning”.

Camping is a loon. It is a mystery to me how so many people manage to be so gullible to believe in date-setters and other charlatans.

I wouldn’t call it careful study but rather a bizarre set of unfounded calculations. There are significant signs of the times but one cannot predict the day nor hour.

I really don’t see any apology in the statement, except the one where he said no one would be saved after May 21. I read no apology or repentance in it otherwise.

“But God was in charge of everything. We came to that conclusion after quite careful study of the Bible. He allowed everything to happen the way it did without correction. He could have stopped everything if He had wanted to. “

The headline said he was repenting, not doubling down and blaming God for his failures. This is one of the lamest excuses I’ve ever read.

Here’s the quick translation: Donations fell like a rock after the world failed to end on time, and the old bible thumper just hasn’t got it in him to try again.

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 25:13

We are to keep watch. He commands us to. So let’s encourage one another to keep awake and stay frosty. But any date setting is a recipe for disaster and is fraught with pride.

I the nineties I was listening to Him. He that night declared the knots in the net of the apostles had something to with theology. I was totally floored after that remark. I believe he is addicted to prescribed medicine. I once had a an unbelievable pain in the ear. The doctor gave me a Demerol derivative. Boy did that did a number on my perception of reality.

Just was crazy.

Imho there is a doctor who over prescribes meds behind his faults of judgement. We should just pray for him. Just look at the pictures. He looks like a drugged up person.
