According to popular wisdom, a good father is not afraid to own up to his mistakes.
Heavenly Father is kind of exempt from this fatherly behavior because the Dude is perfect. He makes no mistakes to own up to.
However, those who profess to speak for God are only human and are subject to making mistakes just like the rest of us. Oddly enough, they rarely, if ever, own up to them.
You might think a perfect God would ask his well-intentioned, mistake-making servants of choice to apologize from time to time.
