An Apology Please
I have been convicted by the Holy Spirit of my childish behavior in calling people names, and using unkind words.
I beg all of you to pray for me, and I beg forgiveness from you!

I would invite all to check the posts on these blogs and see if you can identify the accuser of the brethren.
Monk Brendan, although I don't recall any childish behavior directed toward me, I admire your humility and also ask forgiveness for misspelling your name at times.
St. Brendan was a good soul.

Monk Brendan I hope you didn't misunderstand my reason for writing you,it wasn't to correct you but to help you. You see I am what I call a Pepper Pod inside,I could really get heated up at some people but instead I learned to hold my peace and speak softly when angry. That doesn't mean I have never slipped and let the Pepper Pod go,I have but mostly I don't. Words spoken in a controlled manner have more power than harsh words. Gentleness carries weight but ranting and name calling is like a bucket with the bottom out it goes in but runs out as soon as it does. Bible,building yourself up praying in the Spirit,that means pray in HG moved tongues. Exercise what God gave you. Pray,praise,and worship in tongues as the Holy Ghost gives utterance.

I truly hope my post was not misconstrued. It was meant as the greatest compliment. You did rightly, you did well.

OKAY FOLKS! I'll do it your way. I am a foul sinner plunged into the puddle of my sins. I was wrong. I'm sorry.

Monk Brendan I say this to you with all respect for you but if you don't do things you need to say you are sorry for then you will have a closer walk with God. We all have times when we don't feel well or have emotional trauma and slip with our words to others but that should not become a habit. A way to avoid popping off or being rude is pray about what you say and ask God to lead you and bridle your tongue. The Bible says a kind word turns away wrath. I'll pray for you and you please pray for me. May our words be lovely and guided by God.

"Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar and go, first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.
This is all I'm saying Monk. This is how the Lord says it should be done.

Kathr said, " So why are you continuing your childish behavior? Monk, it is far more humble to go to the person you have offended and apologize. That is your responsibility. To ask others to forgive you puts the responsibility on them, not you. Only God can forgive. So I would suggest you ask Gods forgivness, and then personally apologize to those you have offended. And then leave it up to them to forgive you."
If you don't know how to forgive, what will happen when you are sprawled on the floor, face down, asking God to forgive. Do unto others...

Gladly. But I don't remember you insulting me.
---Samuelbb7 on 6/19/16|
Thanks Monk, for being a good leader. It takes a STRONG GODLY Man to say he is sorry.
I myself would like to apologize to anyone I might have hurt via my posts.
I am sorry to everyone here on CN.
If you wish, you can tell me if I have harmed you.
I can handle it.

Moderator, the title of this blog was, AN APOLOGY. There was no need to add that, "Please."
I was making an apology to the group for my childish behavior. Leave it at that, and don't edit.

"I have been convicted by the Holy Spirit of my childish behavior in calling people names, and using unkind words." Monk Brendan bless you in your willingness to hear Father's voice. Bless you in your willingness to yield yourself to that voice. May we all reach that level of maturity, and remain constant in submission, and obedience, through the empowerment of His Spirit, and the inspiration He provides.

Though I have not personally affected, I greatly admire and respect your sincere humility. Blessings.
It's one thing to be convicted of wrong behavior, sit in the corner, mumble "I'm sorry, God, I'm sorry, God." all by yourself, while contemplating one's navel to get rid of guilt, then continue on one's merry way like nothing happened. This costs one nothing. Quite another to confront the offended party(ies), offer a sincere apology and do whatever one can to rectify the situation in a tangible way.
Being a bit sarcastic, here. Just making the point that this godly behavior among Christians is rare.
