I just wanted (for the present) to make a short, general apology. I beg your pardon and God's for my truly reprehensible behavior during the last two weeks. Such things happen for a reason. With time and God's grace, I hope to profit from this lesson in the way He desires.
I will make a much more specific apology in the days ahead, after which I intend to retire from public discussion boards. I will not be dealing with (or even reading) the vast majority of recent comments. I will only be addressing my own comments/conduct, seeking no further controversy or animosity. Whatever may have been said to me or about me in recent days/weeks -- even IF any of it was remotely 'negative,' which I neither know nor presume is the case -- I am fully cognizant that my own behavior naturally elicited such responses. Still, knowing the caliber of CI members, I am sure most of you have only offered your advice/perspective out of a true desire for the common good and/or my welfare. Although I got angry with some of you and acted as I should not have, I assure you that such feelings are NOT part of my abiding disposition in your regard. I wish all of you well, now and always. Among the few posts I read earlier, I did see that Mr. John Lane is reopening his forum. I wish him and BF well. May the discussions at BF and CI be, and always remain, beneficial and edifying. If, over the years, I have said anything useful to anyone, God alone be praised.
Please pray for me, knowing that you will all be remembered in my own prayers. Godspeed.
