Despite Harold Camping’s insistence that the world would come to an end on Oct. 21, it
has been business as usual for his Family Radio network, with employees working, programming remaining unchanged and donations still being requested.
The lack of changes comes as a surprise since the president and founder of the radio network told the world’s residents that they would be quietly raptured to heaven or annihilated, depending on their standing with God, on Friday. Camping’s Oct. 21 prediction came just five months after his second wrong end of the world prediction, which the radio evangelist had claimed was the start of a “spiritual” judgment, a prelude to the “physical” judgment he predicted would come, now three days overdue.
An unidentified host on Family Radio mentioned the lack of an apocalypse the day after Camping’s failed doomsday date, telling listeners on Oct. 22 who might have been saddened at not having been raptured, not to lose hope.
“I know that many of us are deeply disappointed that Christ did not come. And I said something like this back in May,” the host said, as previously reported by The Christian Post. “But please try to keep in mind that all of us who are believers, all of us who are Christians, are to live in such a way that we are to pray with the apostle John: ‘Come quickly Lord Jesus.’ ”
The radio network also released a statement to address what believers should do since the world has been going on as usual.
“Thy command is still to occupy until he comes,” Family Radio reminded supporters. “We are still to go teach and tell. We are to share his word by reading it, teaching it, and singing it. We still have a unique tool and that tool is radio on which we can bring comfort and encouragement. Every day we, who are Christians, live in attention. We are to live so that we are ready for the return of Christ, and even pray for it. But we also rejoice in every new day, that we’ve been given another day to occupy and serve our Lord.”
Family Radio, which was reported to have collected approximately $100 million in donations leading up to the May 21 “judgment day” and spent most of it on doomsday warning advertising, has asked listeners to keep up their financial support while getting ready for the end of the world, whenever that will be.
