After numerous failed doomsday predictions, Family Radio founder Harold Camping this month issued an apology to listeners, admitting he was wrong, and announced that he had no plans to ever again predict the end of the world, the Christian Post 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!" says a statement on Family Radio'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. ... We now realize that those people who were calling our attention to the Bible's statement that 'of that day and hour knoweth no man' (Matthew 24:36 and Mark 13:32) were right in their understanding of those verses and Family Radio was wrong." Camping went on to say their "bold" insistence that the Bible guaranteed Christ's return first on May 21, 2011, then Oct. 21, 2011, was both "incorrect" and "sinful. ... We humbly ask Him for forgiveness."
