Harold Camping has once again set a date for the end of the world. This time much closer to that of the Millerites of the 19th century, which was October 22, with Camping's choice now October 21.
Harold Camping Oct. 21 Rapture Prediction Now Quieter With Less Suffering
The Christian Post
Harold Camping has predicted that the rapture will take place on Oct. 21, following his May 21 prediction failed to come to pass. He explained this by saying May 21 was just the spiritual rapture, and the physical rapture would soon follow in October.
Harold Camping, president of Family Radio, speaks out for the first time since his failed prediction that the rapture and Judgment Day would happen on May 21. The address was broadcast live from the ministry's headquarters in Oakland, Calif., on May 23, 2011.
However, many Christians have expressed concern with the continued assertions by Camping concerning the return of Jesus Christ and the end of the world. Retired pastor and author Glenn Lee Hill of Meadowbrook Christian Church in Rocky Mountain N.C. previously told The Christian Post, "That is an erroneous prophecy, I don't believe the world is about to end. Jesus has provided the choice for people to live forever."
It is clear that there are many who fervently disagree with Camping's notion of the end of time, Still there has been a change in Camping’s declarations in the past few months, especially as it relates to the destructive nature of the last days. When describing the rapture prior to May 21, Camping spoke about a great earthquake "such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great."
