Harking back to the Freedom Conference repentance message I gave in October of 2015, my tone was received by respected Christians as harsh. I am sorry for that. I would rather it have been given as a lament or an urgent appeal. I regret that the tone lacked gravitas, and there was not enough conveyance of the weightiness of the problem and of the solution in Christ. I have become aware over the years of how my tone can very well distract, irritate, convey pride, self-aggrandizement, or personal vindictiveness, and fail to convey humility, love, compassion, concern, reverence, and the fear of God. By the grace of God, I believe that I have corrected for this to some extent through prayer, personal confession, and a spirit of repentance before the Lord. I realize how these weaknesses and sinful, fleshly tendencies weaken my ability to minister, and I have asked the Lord to cleanse me from this and enable me to be more fruitful for Him in the future.
