Not sure where to put this, so I thought this section was where the 'action' happened. I have one clear failure as a Christian. I have a colossal ego. (Of course I can justify it...) Most of the time I can keep it under rein - or properly, God keeps it under rein for me - and sometimes it runs wild. Among other recent sins, I have dealt with John of Japan in a less than decent, and much less than Brotherly Christian manner. John pushed a couple of my buttons and wounded my ego. As I said, it's big and therefore a good sized target. I cannot say that John did this on purpose. Even IF (please note the IF) he did, his actions do not justify my unseemly conduct. Therefore - and mostly to fulfill my Lord's promptings - I offer an apology for my conduct. I am sorry for being a jerk (fill in your own word). I will make every attempt in the future to conduct my conversation with more decorum and Christian love. For any that need an excuse to stay mad at me, rejoice. I haven't changed my position on much of anything; other than a couple of matters I addressed in the appropriate threads. John. I'm sorry and am determined not to be antagonistic in the future.
