I apologize for some comments I have made, especially about catholicism, that were unnecessarily abrasive. I am not changing my views on this subject, but I am apologizing for the way in which I stated my opinions. So, to anyone I have offended, I am sorry.
Brother,Thank you for sharing this. The Lord is always working on our hearts and it is wonderful to submit to His correction and guiding in our attitudes and intentions. It blessed me to read your note of apology and being sensitive to love and treat others better then yourself. Philippians 2 New International Version (NIV)Imitating Christ’s Humility2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:6 Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness.8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
