“Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.” (James 3:2)
Transparent is probably one of the best things you can be as a public figure. Especially as a Christian leader. On a larger scale, it confirms mistakes, evokes judgement and condemning, but ultimately reveals the power of prayer and results of grace. James Fortune’s testimony is an example.
The award-winning singer took to Periscope to share an insightful look into domestic abuse with hopes to encourage viewers after revealing his enrollment in therapy and counseling over the past few months.
Back in March 2016, Fortune plead guilty to assaulting his wife. He was sentenced to five days in jail, five years of probation, 175 days of community service and a “batterer’s intervention” program.
His recent no-judgement-zone video session, however, is a reflection of his healing – a falling and getting up testimony he fully embraces and hopes people can learn from – and a learning experience to those who might only understand the surface of domestic abuse.
