His speech slurred from a stroke, sounding every bit of his 90-years, founder and chairman of Family Radio Harold Camping apologized for leading his followers astray.
After Camping confessed for falsley prophesying his three failed predictions of the Rapture, he also said he was wrong to tell everyone that would listen that God had stopped saving people after his May 21st pronouncement — the date of God's so-called "spiritual" judgment.
Camping has been claiming since 1992 he had discovered a spiritual numerical system that allowed him to calculate the exact dates of events such as the Great Flood, the Crucifixion and the day of Jesus Christ's return to Earth.
Camping said the world would end on Sept. 6, 1994, then again on May 21, 2011, and finally on Oct. 21.
Family Radio removed his teachings from their web site after Oct. 21, when Camping's final doomsday predication failed to come to pass. He stepped down from his leadership role, The Christian Post reported Oct. 24, 2011.
The Christian Post reported in an exclusive interview with a member of Camping's Bible ministry that the Alameda, Calif., Bible teacher was no longer able to lead Family Radio or his ministry.
