Admit It . . . Or Not!!

Excuses

Happy Hump Daaaaay!!!

It is Wednesday already, right?! It seems the week is going by smoothly … so far!!! How’s your week moving along? I hope each of you are well … and blessed today.

How often do people just “come clean” and say what they did without the song and the dance? Can people just admit they were wrong, repent or apologize, make the necessary changes … and move on? Most humans in the lime light today find it hard to first admit that they were wrong, accept it themselves and then make those necessary changes. Some of you may remember that in Monday’s post, the ego was mentioned as often being the “blocking element” to true forgiveness. We all know how forgiveness works … and most of us want no part of it!!! It really is an ego thing . . . “Me? Wrong? How could that be? Well, let me tell you what happened . . . ” And the story, and the saga … and oftentimes the lies roll on!!

The newly appointed Republican Congressman, Vance McAllister of Louisiana, was caught on video!! So, how much can you say when the evidence is on film? Can he now say, “Well, I lied when I said I was running on a Christian family based platform for my constituents. I had no intentions of upholding any family values, let alone those that were Christian!” He’ll never admit that. Only, “I made a big mistake . . . and I am sorry. I promise to uphold my duties and maintain responsible behavior from here on out!” NOW . . . do you believe him? Ask the husband of McAllister’s political aid who was in the video kissing Congressman Vance!! He said, “You don’t know the real Vance McAllister! He is no good. He can apologize all he wants, I don’t care! He just thinks he’s untouchable!!!”

Yet, I still have a lump in my throat about whatever “immoral act” was committed by former Pastor Bob Coy of Calvary Chapel, Ft. Lauderdale. He, too, simply apologized via a letter read by the “new” pastor. But, he stepped down!!! Do you think some of these politicians when caught on camera need to simply step down, too? Or do we leave them in office, no treatment, families broken (as Mr. Peacock wants a divorce from his wife after he saw the video of them kissing) and a fresh opportunity to begin misbehaving, looking for excuses, repeating the same thing and lying about again? I mean, this, too, is the taxpayer’s monies!!! Here is a lesson in “Know Thyself” and how to avoid being caught up in a tangled web! Some of us humans like to blow this “I am so pure!” horn and everything I do is perfect! Are they trying to convince someone other than themselves that they are “pure and perfect?” There is nothing wrong with being wrong … just admit it, stop lying, get some help . . . and step down! That’s when the ego gets bruised and requires a transformation, which most purported “big whigs” are not willing to do!! Again, I ask, “What about me and you?”

Have a great Hump Day, and . . . to thine own self . . . be true!

Peace,

John I. Cook, Director

    By the way, KC. He wasn’t accused of anything. He simply stated that he needed to resign because he had engaged in an “immoral act.” He left a letter which was read at the services on Sunday. No details yet . . .
