so i am really convicted of this: i really should have gone to the church first before posting, truly, that was sin. so i confess this before you all. i'm sorry for it and hope to never repeat the error.
Public confession of sin is rare. It is rare because it takes guts and humility. We should never take away from that, mainly because we do not know a persons heart. If we violate our concience then we have sinned..........Frank
i just can't handle it that someone is going to curse God and think He lied to them if their bank account fails, all because this guy taught it at a high-profile church.
The tone Sunday wasn't particularly solemn. The Sunday morning "alter call" (Who will "go"? was the invitation) was interrupted by a baby dedication with smiling parents having photo ops with Carter Conlon.
um, krispy, please forgive me here, but i'm not the "go off" type...yikes! i just meant that i should go and ask politely and talk with them, should have clarified that. i came in here with tears, and that is because i feel that this is a real and open community where we can be however we feel. but it wasn't anger, and i don't really go off..i'm pretty mellow in my dealings with others, i strive for love and kindness. do i fail? yep. sure do. and that makes me sad. but praise God, He is kind to shape me to be sweet to people and realize i may not have all the facts. (and even if i ever did, i still am called to be kind and loving for the sake of the Name) plus i really take seriously my call to respect men in all circumstances, regardless of my agreement or non-agreement with them. sorry if i gave you or anyone else any impression otherwise.that was surprising to see you write, so i'm way sorry if i made it seem that way. that rebukes me which is a good thing, to really consider what impression i may give to others.i'm glad to learn from people here. it's really nice that everyone can chip in and help. or confuse me more (haha!). but mostly help. but i stand firm in my confession, it was sin for me. the pattern is laid out plainly in the Bible and i need to follow it. :-)
