Harold Camping "embarrassed" about failed prophecy: says prophecy is difficult to predict

Harold Camping apologized about his failed October 21st prophecy, saying "O Lord, you have the truth, we don't have it," on his radio broadcast entitled "Message from Mr. Camping."    He also said that God will reveal truth when it is time to do it. We don't have to have a feeling of calamity…we are still learning.  We are learning how God brings his messages to mankind."

Local station KBOI adds:

Camping also apologizes for saying last May that people who didn't believe his prophecy that Christians would be taken up to heaven in the rapture on May 21 probably were not saved.

Camping says, "We're ready to cry out and weep before God: `Oh Lord, you have the truth, we don't have it."'

Some listeners who believed Camping sold their belongings to help pay for thousands of billboards to spread his doomsday message.
