Letter to the Editor
Tue, 09/28/2021 - 4:33pm admin
I wish to begin this letter by clarifying my motivation for writing it. My motivation for a similar letter in the past was called into question, greatly diminishing the letter itself. My motivation for writhing this letter is simple: In order to be faithful to Christ Jesus, I must seek reconciliation with those whom I have sinned against in my past.
Matthew 5:21-26 explains this better than I ever could. “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgement: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgement: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to they brother, and the come and offer thy gift. Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time thine adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt nby means come out thence, till thou hast pait the uttermost farthing.”
First and foremost, I want to obey and glorify Christ Jesus by seeking to be reconciled to any who have anything against me. Second, I will be eligible for parole in roughly three-and-a-half years. When I am allowed to go home, I do not want to have any person with anything against me. I simply want to live peacefully with all men. Reconciling with those whom I have sinned against is the only way to accomplish this.
With that being said, I ask that anybody who I have offended in my past to contact me so that we can reconcile our differences. Circumstances currently prohibit me from doing much in the way of restitrution, but the process of reconciliation can begin now. I fully intend to make full restitution wherever necessary upon my release from prison. To those reading this letter whom I have wronged, I want to personally confess that wrong, apologize and ask your forgiveness. You may contact me at the following address:
