Apology Forthcoming

Once again, my overactive mouth (or in this case, keyboard) has gotten me in trouble.
A rather
unpleasant affair occurred at Evangelical Underground.
When time permits, I
will be publishing an apology to all involved. I will also be apologizing for snide
comments I made in my
Marty Minto post
. My sincere hope is that valuable lessons have been learned
by the participants and that those lessons can be passed on to our readers.

    AR,
    You probably don’t remember me, but I’ve posted here a couple of times in the past. I’ve read the EV Underground link and simply want to encourage you to keep close to Him. If someone lies about you, the pharisees lied about Our Lord. If they assasinate your character, they assasinated Him quite literally and assasinated His character. If they hurt you, He has been hurt even deeper. You are in good company, my friend. Just stay close to Him. Turn the other cheek. I am somewhat ashamed that some fellow protestants would rather sow dissention and disunity than uplift and encourage. Be strong in Him.

    BTW, I wonder how much of this unfortunate exchange would have played out in a less instantaneous medium? Comments would have certainly been more considered were more time give to organizing ones thoughts and evaluating one intentions. Blogs are so quick and dirty (one of the things that makes them so much fun), that I can readily see how an aggravated spleen can be vented wihtout much thought as to the consequences.

    Eric: I also urge you to keep close to him (Eric R.). I respect both of your guys’ work, and I hate to see any kind of enmity between you. I’m not taking sides at all on who ought to apologize to whom, but your Thursday post about an upcoming apology sounds like a very good idea. Both of you Erics, I really think, want to glorify God. Peace. Milton

    Eric: Now I want to apologize for being behind the curve on this. I just now read your apology to Eric R. at his site. I should have either said something sooner or stayed out of the debate. Peace. M

    I feel bad that I haven’t written and posted an apology yet. I want to take the time to thoroughly think it through as I write it. It’s one thing to churn out a few quick comments (like I’ve done), but it’s another thing entirely to write a thoughtful, honest, and (for lack of a better word) effective apology post.

    Thanks for the support, Milton. God bless.

    Thank you for your support also, sibert. I do remember you. I just don’t remember where you commented and on what side the issue(s). 😉 Welcome back. Don’t be a stranger. :)

    […] As stated in an earlier post, I owe some people an apology. Before I make good on my promise, I must apologize for taking so long. I probably could have whipped up something quick, but I thought it better to put time and consideration into my words. It would have been a shame if in my haste I inadvertently offended again. […]
