I apologize. - February 18th 2010, 06:08 AM

This is probably my second open apology and I owe a few more personal ones.

I am going to refrain from posting anymore and perhaps coming to TeenHelp altogether. I have begun to realize through talking to someone else about his struggles that I have been an idolater.

I have been putting doctrine above all and glorifying it rather than Christ. Though my motives may have been at some points used to glorify Christ, I feel as if through recent debates that I was forcing more glory on myself and doctrinally being correct. Though I've studied doctrine, I've been avoiding listening to the Spirit.

Now, there is nothing wrong with this in being that good doctrine reveals the true glory of Christ rather than perverting it. The issue is that I have not responded with the most gentle attitude that we are commanded to give in scripture.

This being said, I would like to apologize for my behavior.

At any rate, I have decided I need to leave these forums. My last apology I went on a "break" but I am considering leaving permanently. The reason for this is that I have been struggling with my faith and am in no position to preach to others or teach at this point. I need to get my faith on track so that I am not a blind guide leading the blind as scripture puts it. There has been unrepentant sin in my life that I need to take care of and I need to get my relationship with Christ back on track where it was once before.

I've enjoyed the conversations and certain debates here, but I care more for my Savior and the eternal destiny of my soul. I wish everyone well and if anyone has questions you can AIM me: sickonsubstance or E-Mail me mike@thedennisons.org

I will try to help where I can but I do not wish to teach so much right now in order that I do not bring a bigger judgment upon myself.

I apologize for my anger and repulsive attitudes towards certain people.

I wish everyone well.

"He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."

Mike,
You have nothing to apologize for; everyone is entitle to their own opinions and to express themselves. I do enjoy reading some of your posts you always have good points in them, but then again no one can make you stay here if you do feel like leaving is the best for you , than leave. You have to care for yourself first, I do wish you good and hope that in the near future you decide to come back, if you do not best of luck in your life and in your relationship with Jesus.
“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”- Matthew 17:20.


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

Michael;

You'll be dearly missed by myself and a lot of others, I'm sure. I've found your posts to be helpful and guiding and I can really see that although your own faith may be low, you've helped a lot of fellow believers find within themselves the way, the truth and the life. I hope that you don't feel too upset about this, because, really you don't need to be apologising. At times you may have seemed rude to others, but especially in recent threads I've seen that at first it was you was attacked on a different level to that of the discussion.

If you feel it best to leave, then do so. But just know that I've found you to entirely good, helpful and kindhearted. It's been good to speak to you, even if just once or twice.

If you're ever just passing through or change your mind, send me a pm or something.

Alex.

Michael, do not feel bad! You should definitely stay, you contribute way too much to the religion section to leave.

Hope you stay

You'll be missed.
Hope you decide to come back eventually, we'll be here! :]



I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons.
And maybe weíll never know most of them.
But even if we donít have the power to choose where we come from,
we can still choose where we go from there.
We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

Michael,
No need to apologize. Everyone makes mistakes and it's ok. Because we learn from our mistakes. Hang in there Michael and don't forget to stop by every once and a while. We'll miss you lots and hope things work out for the better. You know where to find me if you ever need anything. Hope to see ya around again soon.
Take care,
Alessa


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Re: I apologize. - February 19th 2010, 11:01 PM

Michael,

I've never seen you as an offensive person. You're entitled to believe what you believe. Those beliefs might not always settle well with others, but that doesn't mean you should feel guilty for them. Religion is always a touchy subject, so keep in mind that sometimes there's no right way to word things without people being offended. That's not your fault at all, and I'm sorry that you feel you have to leave because of this.

While I argued with you a lot, I've always thought you seemed like a caring and kind person. It's too bad I couldn't have gotten to know you a bit better. I hope you decide to come back one day. Take care, and God Bless.
