LOS ANGELES (CBS) — This Saturday, May 21, is Judgment Day.
That is, according to the Oakland-based Family Radio Worldwide and host Harold Camping.
It’s called “the Rapture,” and his devout followers are prepared to get to Heaven with Jesus leading the way.
Camping, 89, has followers from California to China, his show is translated into 48 different languages on 150 different radio stations.
Camping believes the Rapture will take place Saturday, when true believers make it to Heaven. He also says the world will end on October 21, 2011.
In 1994, Camping also told followers that Christ would return on Sept. 6 of that year…he says now he made a mathematical error.
As Juan Fernandez reported on the KCAL9 News at 10 p.m. Friday, Camping’s latest predictions are causing many to reflect —and drawing fire from many prominent Christians, as well.
