The teen actor at the center of the latest storm raining down on “Two and a Half Men” backtracked Tuesday from his wacky hellfire-and-brimstone condemnation of the show.

“I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed,” Angus T. Jones said in a statement published on TMZ. “I never intended that.”

He also expressed admiration for the people behind the show he blasted on Monday as “filth” and unworthy of viewers .

“I grew up around (the cast and crew) and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families,” Jones said. “I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.”

Jones took a different tone in a new video provided to the Daily News Tuesday (CLICK FOR VIDEO), in which he seeks to reconcile his religious fervor with his decision to sign on to the show for another $8 million, claiming God told him to do it.

“I am confident that I am there for a reason for one more year,” Jones says in the video from the Seventh-day Adventists church in Los Angeles where he worships. “I don’t think I would have been on the show if God hadn’t kind of pushed me into it. Because otherwise I genuinely didn’t want to do another year of the show.”

Jones, 19, who has played Jon Cryer’s son Jake on the racy CBS sitcom since 2003, is paid about $350,000 an episode. On the show, his character has joined the military and does not appear as frequently as he did in the past.

Officials at CBS and Warner Bros., the studio that produces the show, have declined to comment. But industry sources said Jones is free to speak his mind and remains under contract for the rest of the season.

He is not expected back on set until the new year, a source said.

Jones’ online rants come less than two years after hooker-happy Charlie Sheen was booted from “Two and a Half Men” for feuding with executive producer Chuck Lorre and reportedly smoking crack.

Jones has never caused any trouble on the set, but that didn’t keep Sheen from chiming in.

“With Angus’ Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed,” Sheen told People magazine.

Jones’ video was produced by controversial Seventh-day Adventist Christopher Hudson, who is famous for the fiery sermons he gives in YouTube videos — in which he’s compared President Obama to Hitler and claimed Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rihanna are “in league with Lucifer.”

“I’m not an extremist,” Hudson told The News. “I use colorful language to cement my ideas. I don’t think Obama is the new Hitler. I like Obama. I was talking about some of his policies and comparing them to the policies (of Hitler).”

Hudson said he was introduced to Jones for the first time last week by a couple who belong to the Los Angeles church and run their own ministry called the End Times Like These. He admitted to never watching an episode of “Men,” but like Jones, branded it “filth.”

“If I was in Angus’ shoes and had his spiritual awakening, I hope I would not continue on the program,” Hudson said. “But Angus is highly intelligent. Whatever decision he makes will be between him and the maker.”
