Making Amends

Background

There is an area of life that is difficult to measure.

And, that is how to accept people asking for forgiveness.

 

Personally

Personally I think that personal change should be part of that journey.

Has the behavior changed ?

Is the person-hood that led one down that path changing ?

If the person is not changing, the behavior will be repeating.

Public Life

There are a couple of public figures that come to mind.

And, I will go a bit back; to the 90s to the precise.

House Democrats

While the younger legislatures may be more opportunistic, the seasoned ones are not so.  At least in public.

They understand the journey the country went through with Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

Bill Gates

In the late nineties, everyone faulted Bill Gates for over competitiveness.

The journey went through the courts and he was faced with the prospect of his company being broken up.

His company’s leadership group persuaded him to take a less public face.  He relinquished the Day to Day running of the organization and became Chairman of the Board.

Japan

The Japanese flooded the company with cheaper and competitive automobiles and electronics.  Likely vilified, as well.

With time the attention shifted.

The Chinese should likely seek and see solace in that journey.

Summary

In summary one should ask him or her self, which areas are you withholding forgiveness.

And, why :-

  1. Is the fault personal or group?
    • Was the fault directed at the person directly or at a group?
  2. What has the offending partner done to change the situation and perception
    • Has there been confession?
      • And, sometimes confession is personal and sometimes it is public
    • Has he or she sought forgiveness
    • What has been done in the private and public place to amend
  3. Have you had the opportunity to see those changes
    • If you have not, then the scope of the problem is likely lesser than one thinks it is
    • One is holding on to old grudges or at least expecting a fuller recompense than is likely due

Transcripts

The South Carolina megachurch pastor who drew criticism when he bought his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini as an anniversary present in December, admitted the couple almost got a divorce.

John Gray, whose Relentless Church is based out of Greenville, said he failed his wife, Aventer, before giving her the expensive car, a video on YouTube shows.

“For the last two years we weren’t even sure if we were going to make it. This is what the people saw,” said Gray, who smiled along with his wife as she stood at his side during a church service. “This is what the people saw, but they didn’t see the tears at night, they didn’t see the times when one of us was sleeping on the couch.”

Gray said he was “failing as a husband,” but he and Aventer continued to smile in public even though “nobody knew that we were getting ready to get a divorce,” the video shows.

In the video, Gray said the couple contemplated divorce because he “started listening to the wrong voices, and let some people get too close. And she found out, and she set it off, just like a good wife should.”

At that point in the service, video shows Aventer taking the microphone and offering her perspective on the marital problems. She said somebody preyed on Gray’s insecurities, whispering to the “16-year-old who couldn’t get a date.”

“The devil is alive. I’m standing with my husband and you can go back to the pits of Hell where you came from,” Aventer exclaimed in the video. “Was I upset? Yes. Was I heartbroken? Yes, but you better learn how to get into there for, what’s the vows? For better and worse. When the worse shows up you don’t run away.”

Aventer then claimed the devil was challenging the Grays in an effort to undermine their congregation, according to the video.

“I see you devil, but you don’t want it with me,” Aventer said in the video before shifting her focus to the person who threatened her marriage. “I put scripture on that strange woman. I put scripture on that strange woman. She don’t want it with me.”

In another service on Dec. 30, Gray said he contemplated ending more than his marriage. He admitting to being suicidal, a video posted to YouTube shows.

“I literally thought about how I could end my life and still get to heaven and somehow my kids would not be scarred, but there was no way I could figure out how to do it,” Gray said in the video, later adding “2018 was the worst year of my life.”

Another YouTube video shows Gray attending a service led by Bishop TD Jakes, who put his hands on Gray’s head and called out “the spirit of suicide (which) hangs around your house.” Gray laid on the ground until Jakes ordered him back on to his feet.

In the Dec. 30 service, Gray told his congregation he was wearing his “funeral outfit” because “2018 tried to kill me.” In that video he goes on to say that he takes responsibility for some of his actions. He also said he was targeted by “a supernatural demonic attack.”

Again, he said one of the things that made 2018 so difficult was the possibility of divorce.

I was “talking to my wife, saying I don’t think it’s going to work out. I think we need to go our separate ways,” Gray said in the video. “For the haters watching online, hoping that it was the end, we’re still together.”

Not only is the couple still married, they are going to host a relationship conference. It is for anyone regardless if they are “single, married, divorced or something in between,” according to an Instagram post.

They will be joined by other speakers, including four couples, during the conference Feb. 7-9.

Gray previously was a pastor at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Texas, WSPA reported. He also is the star of a reality TV show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network, according to its website.

In addition to being criticized for giving his wife a Lamborghini, Gray also had to defend himself for attending a White House meeting of black religious leaders where he sat next to President Donald Trump, The State reported.

      • We had hoped that this whole affair could have been resolved in private months ago but Moriel’s continued attack against David Nathan, discrediting him as a liar, hypocrite and heretic have forced us to expose the real spirit behind Jacob Prasch and Moriel Ministries in the hope that a genuine repentance will be forthcoming and we can begin to work towards reconciliation despite the dreadful damage that has been done. This video was independently made by Catalyst Counselling who have been ministering to folk who have been devastated by Jacob’s spiritual abuse.
