You don't stand or fall to me but Christ alone.

Keep on keeping on.

Phil.3
[13] " I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before," (Paul)

We all sin. We all fail God. To recognise it and ask for forgiveness is another step along the rocky road.

To post an apology like that takes courage. To quote Eden, 'Be Blessed'.

Hi, Itty-Bitty Girl, this is Eden. I appreciate the interest you have taken in whether the method you were using to work the works that favor God was "catching fish for God, or not", and I appreciate your interest in whether "honey catches more flies than vinegar."

The book of Proverbs says, "A kind word turns away wrath; a harsh word stirs up anger."

Itty-Bitty Girl, even "as you were", you were still saved. But the LORD and the Lord and the Holy Spirit are Gentlemen, and they would not have said some of the things that your flesh said.

I don't think that the God I KNOW ever wants any of His adopted children to "practically KILL someone thinking they are doing God a favor." To THAT, Jesus would say, "You know not what kind of Spirit you are of", namely an Exceedingly Kind One.

Regarding Your Open Letter of Apology, Be blessed, Itty-Bitty Girl, I hope to meet you in the chorus of heaven.

Eden

Inside the will of God there is no failure. Outside the will of God there is no success.

I love your reply, Linda, but I don't like the name "Rose" though. I changed it to Glacialis.

I like "Glacialis" better, so can you please call me "Glacialis" instead from now on?

Apology accepted. In my posts that I made to you, I was truly trying to help, not mislead or belittle you. Im not going to beat you up for your mistakes. It takes a big person to admit they were wrong. I m not going to go back and re-read my posts but if I said anything to you to offend, hurt or make you angry, I apologize to you as well.

I knew your intentions were good. You were just approaching them the wrong way. Sometimes you have to back off of an argument over something you believe in and turn it over to God and let him handle it.

Now something good did come out of your posts. I wasnt a follower of JO but I did like listening to him and watching his broadcast. Some of the information that you provided, I hadnt heard. And to be honest, was saddened by it. JO is teaching alot of bad things. But if he would repent and get on the right path, it would be awesome. He could reach alot of lost people. All we can do is pray for him, his church, and his followers.

God Bless.

God teaches all to walk in grace in HIS time. I believe that your ability to see false teaching for what it is and your desire to have others also see it are GOD given. I do not believe that your methods were always GOD led or directed. We all have flesh, and learning not to walk in it is a day by day from glory to glory process that GOD must lead us through.

If I see anything in you Rose, it is a heart that truly desires to please GOD, and you need to remember that GOD is rewarder of those who seek HIM. As long as you truly desire HIM, he will continue to guide you and refine you. There will likely be lots of things that you will have to be corrected about, things that you will have to repent of, things that He will convict you of. This is good... it means that HE has dealt with you as a daughter. GOD does chasten HIS children and when we endure that chastening it means that we are HIS and HE has dealt with us as such! Thanks and GLory and Praise BE to GOD!!!

You are a blessing Rose. I am thankful to call you a sister. It is always a blessing when GOd allows us to see HIS work in our brethren, for this is to see HIM in our brethren.

I pray that your heart will always be open to HIS spirit's leading and you will continue to grow in HIM and in faith all your days. Remember we are clay and HE is molding us all, and HE is faithful to continue the good work that HE began. Sometimes it is painful to be molded.and stretched and formed, but one day we will be perfect vessels in HIS hands! GOD is GOOD!

So, here's to being clay! God bless you and keep you always! [Kiss]

I feel as if I owe a lot of people an apology for my behavior in the past. So, with that said, this is an open letter of apology to those whom I have offended from me to you:

"I see the truth now, I am no longer decieved. I see life as more of a spiritual battle rather than a physical one.

I understand that I was decieved, the least in part. Now I repent. I turn away from all of the wicked things that I have done against Joel Osteen here. That picture that I made of Joel Osteen was terrible. That was all me, that had nothing to do with God. I made that man look like he was the devil, and I feel terrible about that. I was so decieved and pride-filled that I did not even see that there was anything wrong with it.

I know I messed up. I also kept telling myself that I was concerned about the babes in Christ, but my actions did not show it. I don't even think that any babes in Christ would understand the truth because of the way that it was presented by me.

I had no love and no peace, I ruined it for myself. I realize that it is not Joel Osteen's fault that he is that way. It is NOT his fault. I no longer think evil of that man. He can change and repent and turn away from his sin just as I have done. It is not too late for him.

I see the evil that I have done, and I would like to tell everyone I have offended with my dreadful actions that I am "sorry" for misbehaving and for being such a meanie.

Sorry, everyone, I apologize for the evil that I have done to you all."
