There are indications that the demise Harold Camping’s Family Radio Network is imminent. Camping, a heretic of Christianity, is best known for his failed doomsday predictions.

Religious broadcaster Harold Camping says he and his Family Radio network are embarrassed that the world didn’t end on Oct. 21 as he predicted.
He also apologizes for saying that Christians who did not buy into his May 21st doomsday prophecy were not saved.
Once again, the world failed to end, despite a high-profile prediction from a radio preacher in California.
When the Rapture he predicted for May 21, 2011 did not occur, Harold Camping came up with a new date: October 21.
Family Radio preacher Harold Camping, who has a record of false doomsday prophecies, insist his new date of Oct. 21st is correct — probably.
A heretic himself, Camping has turned his formerly Christian radio network into, theologically, a cult of Christianity.
, the Doomsday radio preacher who sparked international media attention by predicting the end of the world last month, has been hospitalized after suffering a stroke at his Alameda home Thursday night.

— wrongly — that the end of the world would begin on May 21 revised his prophesy on Monday, saying now that the end is due in October.
He now believes that May 21 had been “an invisible judgment day,” of the spiritual variety.
The man who said the world was going to end on May 21, 2011 — and Christians were going to be raptured to heaven — appeared at his front door in Alameda, California a day later.
While refusing to give an interview Camping told a reporter that he’s got to live with the fact that his predictions failed.
Harold Camping’s prophesied doomsday has come and gone without any of his predictions coming true. Again.

According to cult leader Harold Camping earthquakes would today already have obliterated various locations at the international date line, with the destruction rolling east time zone by time zone.
None of that has happened. The false prophet had earlier scheduled the earth’s destruction in 1994.
If preacher Harold Camping
is right, Jesus will return on May 21, 2011 and the righteous will fly up to heaven, leaving behind only their clothes.

A previous date, Sept. 6, 1994, came and went without the Judgement Day Camping had announced.
Camping’s Family Radio station reaches listeners around the world.
