and still I forgive Chris Brown.
I the Lord will forgive whom I will forgive,
but of you it is required to forgive ALL men.”
Doctrine and Covenants 64:10
Once again, I go over my standard 2 minutes
because it is important for me to express ALL I need to say:
I forgive Chris Brown.
I’m quite sure Rihanna has publicly expressed that she has.
I in no way condone his past behavior as acceptable.
Abuse of any kind is unspeakably evil, ugly, and utterly unacceptable.
I can understand where Miranda Lambert (and others with similar viewpoints) are coming from.
I believe that the Atonement of Jesus Christ can redeem even people who make BIG mistakes.
I believe Mr. Brown when he has publicly expressed how sorry he is.
I expect Chris to be on his absolute best behavior from now on.
I sincerely hope I am not offending anyone who has ever experienced abuse.
And to begin to conclude this post, I wish to share the following LDS Conference Talk concerning this heartbreaking topic.
I pray that you, as one abused or one who has caused it, will act now to avail yourself of the healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I testify that your faith and obedience will assure that He will help you.
Thank you Elder Scott.
If any of you have experienced
or are currently experiencing abuse of any kind,
my heart and prayers are with you.
Remember that you are a child of God
and deserve to be treated as such.
❤, Katherine Anne
