Talk about a mea culpa: Harold Camping didn’t just say that his end-of-the-world predictions in 2011 was wrong—it was “incorrect and sinful.”

RNS reports:

“We have learned the very painful lesson that all of creation is in God’s hands and he will end time in his time, not ours!” reads the statement signed by Camping and his staff and posted on his ministry’s website.

“We humbly recognize that God may not tell his people the date when Christ will return, any more than he tells anyone the date they will die physically.”

The letter goes on to say that “though many dates are circulating,” Camping and Family Radio won’t be making any more predictions. Not after striking out twice last year.
