The third time was not the charm for doomsday predictor Harold Camping. Following his most recent failed prediction of the rapture, the radio evangelist has issued an apology and announced his retirement …
From The Huffington Post:
In an audio message posted on Camping’s Family Radio website, the 90-year-old broadcaster told his listeners that the Rapture did not occur October 21 because it was ultimately God’s will. "He could have stopped everything if He had wanted to," he said.
In addition, he admits that his calculations were wrong and tells his followers that "we should be very patient about this matter. At least in a minimal way we are learning to walk more and more humble before God."
Camping also apologized for a controversial comment saying that God had stopped saving people who did not believe in his May 21 spiritual judgment day predictions. Camping points out that believers must continue studying the Bible, praying, and remembering that God is in charge.
