bruskoish Most often, although it is a sad fact, some people when presented with a story only look at one side instead at the whole picture. And from that small detail, they would build their own story. So let me share with you my, friends, the basic on what to do when you hear a story. We go back to educating one's mind and one's morals.

An excerpt from Come Before Winter and Share My Hope by Charles Swindoll.

Curiosity and Challenge are the healthy twins in the Discernment family. They are dressed alike until they grow up and become more refined and distinct.

  •   bruskoish But there is a difference between the expressions of discernment and raw suspicion. The difference may be veiled, but it is real. It lies in the realm of motive. Suspicion is the act of suspecting something wrong without proof or evidence. It is mistrust . . . doubt . . . skepticism . . . extreme or negative caution.

    Curiosity sees a cast on a leg and asks, "What happened?" Suspicion wonders if anything happened.

    Curiosity listens to a speaker and thinks, "How did he come up with that---what's his technique?" Suspicion doubts the validity of the statement or the motive of the speaker . . . or both. 3w
  •   bruskoish Curiosity observes an irregularity and challenges simply, "Why?" Suspicion entertains the immediate idea, "What's wrong here? Who's to blame---who's at fault?" Curiosity analyzes with neutral, unprejudiced wisdom while suspicion frowns and looks for deception and subterfuge. Curiosity listens to logic, common sense, and reason . . . suspicion looks for something hidden, something held back.

    Both curiosity and suspicion may be terribly persistent, but one stays with the facts while the other strays beyond the facts---and in so doing, develops without the facts. 3w
  •   bruskoish Curiosity and suspicion may look similar, but one leads to life and one leads to death. 3w
  •   bruskoish But even if you lack the curiosity to ask, it is not so hard to believe a story if you know what your values are. 3w

bruskoish I guess I'm guilty for wanting to be up in the club
I guess I'm guilty cause girls always want to show me love
I guess I'm guilty for living and having a little fun
Girl, I'm guilty for that, girl, I'm guilty.

bruskoish Part 2: The Danger of Denial (Avoiding the Dangers of Superficial Forgiveness, Ken Ellis)

4. Denial of Anger - Religious people often use this defense as a means of maintaining their own sense of moral superiority. "I'm not angry" is often a way to hide the vengeful rage that is harbored inside the person who is wronged. "You shouldn't be so angry!" is a not-so-subtle way of blaming the victim. Anger is a God-given emotion that can energize us to confront wrongdoers and seek justice. As creatures made in His image, we all have a reflection of His emotional character within us. This includes anger. Paul's admonition "Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath" (Rom. 12:19) assumes that we feel an urge to do just that. He later wrote, "In your anger do not sin" (Eph. 4:26). Although we can rightly be angry, it is not our job as believers to seek vengeance.

bruskoish Part 1: The Danger of Denial (Avoiding the Dangers of Superficial Forgiveness, Ken Ellis)

1. Denial of Reality - When a wrong has occurred, what actually happened? We should honestly and completely investigate the who, what, when, where, why and how. When children are confronted with a wrong, all too quickly they try to get away with excuses. Forgiveness and apologies are not about brushing away the truth and pretending something didn't happen. God's Word commands us to "put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor" (Ephesians 4:25). Even when it reveals our guilt, the beginning point to restoration is truthfully admitting what actually occurred.

2. Denial of Wrongdoing - Most, but certainly not all, acts that wound another physically, emotionally, or spiritually involve some attitude of the heart. Too often we are quick to say, "I did it because...", or "It wasn't so bad," when we don't want to admit we are guilty of violating an ethical or moral standard. Honesty demands that the wrongdoer admit he or she did wrong. The Bible tells us that Hod expects us to confess our sins to Him. So a true confession demands that we admit it was a choice to do wrong, not something that couldn't be helped. Personal responsibility is essential. Otherwise, continued repetition of the wrong is likely.

3. Denial of Pain - When a wrong has been done, both the wrongdoer and the person wronged may try to minimize the hurt. People are really good at denying their pain when they are children because they are often told by adults to stop crying and grow up. Physical damage can often heal fairly quickly, but people can be broken inside for a lifetime. In the end, one thing is clear -- the pain we are seeking to ignore is undeniably real.

bruskoish Continuation on Avoding the Dangers of Superficial Forgiveness (Ken Ellis). Surperficial Apologies and Forgiveness. In theological circles, the subject of confession and forgiveness have been studied for many years. But more recently, the secular world of counseling has awakened to the therapeutic use of forgiveness as a technique of treatment. Members of the mental-health community have been discovering the benefits of meaningful apology, forgiveness, and restoration. All too often, however, both secular and religious communities have made the same mistake of moving too quickly to the benefits of forgiveness.

In the past, many secular counselors viewed the spiritual practice of apology and forgiveness as a simplistic and overly religious ritual that should be avoided in the process of helping people to deal realistically with their problems. Such practitioners believed that the act of forgiving others was really a psychological defense to deny anger. Many counselors believed that this defense kept underlying rage from ever being fully expressed or resolved. In many ways, the secular community was right. The casual repentance and forgiveness that is often encouraged in religious circles is more likely to be a part of the problem than a part of the solution. What passes for forgiveness (or an apology) is too often marked by superficiality. INSTEAD OF HONESTLY DEALING WITH THE ROOTS OF THE PROBLEM AND THE RESULTING DAMAGE, the parties often use a shallow understanding of what the Bible says about forgiveness to smooth over conflict. #mostoutstandingearthling #goodread #blessed #grateful #thoughtstoponder #dontbedecieved #conflict #complacency #thinkcritically #thingsarentastheyseem #staystrong #hellostalker

bruskoish Early morning reading on "Avoiding the Dangers of Superficial Forgiveness" , obstacles to genuine restoration by Ken Ellis.
He says cover-up and denial do not make a problem go away. Problems that are swept under the rug only multiply the eventual damage. Avoidance or minimization of the facts only assures that when the problem does surface, more people will be hurt and disillusioned by behavior that has been allowed to go on without timely response. When spiritual leaders or members of their congregation are guilty of financial misconduct, marital unfaithfulness, dishonesty, or cover-up, they have an influence that goes far beyond themselves. When they fall, they bring others down with them. Those who have looked to them for guidance often stumble and lose their own way. They harm everyine in their circle of influence. They compromise the credibility of the mnistry they represent. And worst of all, they damage the reputation of Christ Himself.
