The Countdown to Harold Camping’s End-of-the-World is underway. After wrongly predicting the end on May 21, the Family Radio founder brought forth another doomsday prognostication by now saying that Oct. 21 will be the final day.
Camping has issued a reprieve to non-believers, though, at least in terms of pain. He says there won’t be any, and that the end will come quietly for them.
Camping also took his own liberties with the Bible saying that those who have professed Jesus Christ since May 21 are not actually saved, and that some people may not know they had been saved when they actually were.
The Oct. 21 forecast comes without the media blitz of his Spring prediction on billboards, TV ads, and other forecasts of earthquakes and erupting volcanoes.
Camping has predicted the end numerous times now, and as a result many of his followers sold everything they owned in preparation for the end.
