I’m not sure what it is I said in my last posting that has offended you.
I was just trying to encourage others who feel that God was the person that let them down, when it was people who done the damage.
Whatever type of Christian I am, hot cold, or lukewarm, I didn’t think other Christians could take offence at this. Why are you angry?
If you think I was patronising or condescending please accept my apologies. I was just trying to encourage.
12 months ago, if you had put your last 2 postings on, I would have been trying my level best to ‘smooth’ things over - for the sake of what I thought was the point of the thread, namely to publicise the real damage people suffered whilst in KCF, not to have a go at one another.
But that was then, this is now, I’ve moved on, The thread has I think done it’s job, so I don’t care about putting on a ‘united front‘.
If we stay in the same place, we will never get over the damage, we have to move on, for some it’s early days, for others like myself, it’s in the past. It doesn’t have a hold on me, it doesn’t distort my vision of the cross, it hasn’t, thank God, made me a bitter person, just someone who won’t get fooled again, as the song goes.
I hope, someday the people responsible for all this may say sorry for what they have done, and do you know, I will forgive them. If I know God can do this in me, why can’t I believe He can do this in KCF and turn their hearts? I am sure they look back over the years and wish they’d have done things differently. I’ve got to believe that they can change and that they are human and make mistakes. I am no longer going to believe they are without hope.
I don’t really know if I measure up to your description of what a Christian should be, probably not.
But I’m not worried, why should I be, wasn’t that the problem in KCF, you just couldn’t measure up to the mark? All I know is, if I try to please Him who matters and He knows my heart and the things I hold dear, then that’s the most I can hope.
My previous post was a sort of signing off note.
I thank everyone who has been on this site for or against it, we all have our say.
I hope everyone finds peace and happiness .
