I've given 2 "Sermons," and I don't have a degree, I'm just Mormon.


I think this counts as a win, for me.


P.S. Rob: Everyone hates me still Smile

I'd rather have two sermons under my belt than a degree.

I like the movie Labyrinth, does that count?


Also, my sermons were really just 20 minute religious talks... It's not like I was the only speaker for an hour or anything.

Ahhh. My sermon was 53 minutes long. I was soooo nervous at first.

Most of the people I have known since childhood, though, so I relaxed within 15 minutes or so.

Yeah, it's not so bad. I get up once a month to talk for 1-5 minutes.

We don't have clergy assigned to speak regularly. People in the church get asked to speak for 5-25 minutes (sometimes only days in advance.) So, pretty much everyone gives a talk at some point.

I quite like it, but wish I got to more.

That's pretty cool, actually. The church I attend has homegroup at one's house on Wednesdays and we do the same thing.

The infant church operated closer to the way you speak of, from house to house (although it's anyone's guess as to how long one spoke).

I must admit, it's weird being referred to as Nova.

How did it happen? My conquering cowardice? Laughing Out Loud

I think I remember Nick mentioning an apology. To be honest, I didn't believe it, lol.

Had I been in anyone else's shoes who knew me I wouldn't have believed it, either!

Oh dear. The prodigal son has returned hasn't he.

Quote by R. Lawson:
Thank you for showing grace.


Grace? You once bragged about conning the sick, the weak, the destitute.

Grace should be granted to an avowed, braggart sociopath why?

Quote:
Remember the mean kid in Butterfly Effect? And remember how in one timeline he was really nice?

That's me now.


Never seen that movie.

Quote:
In essence, X -- and I am not shifting blame here -- I had been hooked on opiates since 1997. In 2004 I kicked the habit because of Sandi, God rest her soul, and then I pretty much went bonkers. Everything I did was of my own free will, of course. Please understand that I take full responsibility for my despicable actions.

I was a complacent, arrogant fool.


I've made jokes about her death too, guess what. I didn't cross the sick, sick fucking line you apparently did.

Quote:
I went to seminary, obtained my Master's in Religious Studies, and preached my first sermon on April 27. (Don't worry, I'm not here to proselytize -- I earnestly came here to apologize to everyone.)

I appreciate your forgiveness, X. Everyone else's, too.

Robb (yeah, with two B's now). Wink


Sickening. What I've heard you've done should preclude you from ever standing in front of a congregation of any church. Scamming the elderly? THATS what they let pastors do? Whatever denomination you're involved with, you're doing a disservice to.

We haven't met. Everyone on here calls me Sharpy or Sharpie. Terribly sorry, you've been gone a while and here I am calling you out.

Furthermore, I'd never even heard of you..many of us haven't. If you're truly sorry then fine. But make a thread, apologize for the terrible, terrible things you've supposedly done.

Gentlemen accept their transgressions and apologize.

Next thing is Blaze coming back, though.


And I'm not ready for that.

Ever.

Please, I can't do anything worse than I've already done, lol.

Grace is undeserved favor. I did not expect to be shown grace, yet I have. In fact, I did not think I would come back and reply, for I had it set in my mind that I would merely be mocked. That's fine, so long as I apologized.

St. Paul did many, terrible things, too, but it did not disqualify him from service. King David murdered many by joining forces with the Philistines and going on raiding parties, yet he was still called "a man after God's own heart." I've learned from my mistakes. Oh, and I grew up.

Moreover, I'm not a pastor. Not yet, anyway. I'm non-denominational with Charismatic/Free Grace beliefs.

Well, yeah. That's what I did. The thread's name was changed (by someone else) from "An apology" to the title it is now.
