CN Morning Rundown: Pastors Extend Open Apologies and More

Pastor Loren Sandford's Open Apology: How and Why We Got It Wrong

Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:

I promised long ago that if I got it wrong regarding the outcome of the presidential election and my prophecy that Trump would be reelected, I would publish an open apology. Since then, I have waited for procedures and challenges to run their course.

Last night, the Congress counted the votes, and the election went to Biden. The president has apparently conceded, promising a smooth transition. So, now is the time.

I want to tell you how I got it wrong. This is a confession and an explanation, not an excuse or justification.

3 Takeaways From Historic 'Stop the Steal' Event in Washington, DC

We are witnessing history.

The events of the past 24 hours will reverberate throughout the corridors of time. Their significance cannot be overstated. Because I lived 24 years in the Washington, D.C., area and 11 in Atlanta, Georgia, they have deep meaning for me personally.

First, what was described as the most consequential non-presidential election in our nation's history, two leftist-leaning Democrats won Senate seats, enabling the Democratic party to seize control of our nation's governance. Their radical socialist agenda will now be implemented with blazing speed catching scores of naïve citizens off guard, wondering how this all could have happened in the "land of the free and the brave." It is indeed a dark day in the United States of America.

Jeremiah Johnson: My Public Apology and Process

I have submitted this letter to senior, respected national leaders in the body who have now given their approval to publicly release it. I am also currently in relationship with local church elders where I reside, who I greatly value and believe are essential for accountability in my life, marriage and ministry.

We have dialogued and prayed, and I continue to receive their instructions and corrections. I have learned some very hard and valuable lessons throughout this process, and I intend to be as transparent as possible in the following remarks. The prophetic ministry is simply one of the gifts that God has given His body, and we should always be actively seeking relationship and accountability, first at the local level and then nationally if that is where God's calling leads us.

My aim in this public apology is twofold. First, I would like to repent for inaccurately prophesying that Donald Trump would win a second term as the president of the United States. I refuse to blame the saints and say, "It didn't come to pass because they did not pray enough." Nor will I proclaim, "Donald Trump actually won, so I was right, but now it has been stolen from him." I believe the first statement seeks to alleviate the prophetic messenger from the responsibility of what he prophesied, and the second statement is filled with potential pride and an unwillingness to humble himself and admit he was wrong.
