Forgiveness, reconciliation and apology
* * *
“I think Kathy had to get past the ‘yes, but.'”
* * *
“Very few people say they were wrong in a public way.”

“The hardest work was to keep peeling back these layers of defensiveness —
the comfort of not looking at what I had done.”
“…why don’t THEY have to?
And suddenly these words:
‘FORGIVE US our trespasses
AS WE FORGIVE those who trespass against us.’
And that was it —

Asbury Revival, 1970: “‘Dr. Kinlaw, I am a liar. Now what do I do?’ … Three days later, she came to me radiant, and she said, ‘Dr. Kinlaw, I’m free!’”
The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1 Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.
Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!
My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”

One thought on “[PBS video] Forgiveness: A Time to Love and a Time to Hate — Kathy Powers talks about living with the SHAME from running away and the FREEDOM from coming clean!”
She she she she she… it was all about her. Now she want’s forgiveness… it’s all about choices and the consequences of our choices. She does not want to ask and be turned down. If she waits long enough of course her kids will accept her… maybe. What is lost is the caring and sharing when she left… she did not participate in the lives and contribute to their lives. What is there to forgive, the fact she choose the needs and wants of herself over the needs and wants of a family. You have the right to leave you must accept the consequences.
