I love you brother. I know that the grace of God is sufficient for you.
I’m disappointed, hurt, and if I’m honest… a bit disenchanted. I’m frustrated that you commented on the Ashley Madison hack when you knew your name was on that list, and I’m disappointed that it appears that you did not confess this to your presbytery and leadership at Ligonier Ministries until it appeared that your sin might come to light.
However, as I’ve reflected on today’s news, and had conversations with others, I’m reminded of David.
My prayer for you today is this:
Have mercy on RC, O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercy
blot out his transgressions.
Wash him thoroughly from his iniquity,
and cleanse him from his sin!
For he knows his transgressions,
and his sin is ever before him.
Against you, you only, has he sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you may be justified in your words
and blameless in your judgment.
Behold, he was brought forth in iniquity,
and in sin did his mother conceive him.
Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being,
and you teach him wisdom in the secret heart.
Purge him with hyssop, and he shall be clean;
wash him, and he shall be whiter than snow.
Let him hear joy and gladness;
let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
Hide your face from his sins,
and blot out all his iniquities.
Create in him a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within him.
Cast him not away from his presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from him.
Restore to him the joy of your salvation,
and uphold him with a willing spirit.
