Family Radio’s Harold Camping Issues Statement of Apology for Failed Rapture Predictions
The well known founder of Family Radio of the Oakland Bay area station, Harold Camping is admitting that his predictions of the second coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ was wrong. Take a look at his issued statement.
Dear Family Radio Family,
In this time of confusion and turmoil, God’s Word remains the only truth in which we can trust. God has shown us again the truth that He alone is true. In Romans 3:4 God declares: “Let God be true but every man a liar.” Events within the last year have proven that no man can be fully trusted. Even the most sincere and zealous of us can be mistaken.

Camping’s wife, Shirley Camping, was very suspicious of Tauszik when he appeared at their doorstep, wanting to make sure he was not working for any newspaper or magazine.
