15430[Covenanted Reformation] Re: On going events
- Mar 4, 2007I never said anything about excommunication, nor implied it. Nor, did
anyone say anything about a paper coming out to defend any sort of
excommunications, nor imply it. Cheryl said, "The elders of the
pretended court were willing to excommunicate and discipline people on
the basis of documents that have *only recently* come to light!?!"
I'm assuming she got this from Bob's statements below, but certainly
did not get them from my statements.
Some asked about doing research to get both sides of the story, and I
suggested Bob's site was a good link, plus that recently additional
information has come to light that the Elders would address in a paper
or booklet. How anyone took my comments to mean that the Elders
excommunicated all these people based upon false information or
insufficient information is beyond me.
Again, if you want to read the basis upon which the excommunications
were completed, you will find almost all the documents posted on Bob's
website. The future paper will discuss the topic of secret societies
or hidden societies operating within a Church. It is my understanding
that it will not be written to support the excommunications, but I
have not asked this question of the Elders. My GUESS GUESSS GUESS is
that it will not be written to support the excommunications, because
it really has nothing to do with the excommunications. If you want to
know the basis for the excommunications, READ BOB'S WEBSITE!
As for the content of the further paper, I have no idea its content.
Bob, in closing, I would ask that you keep this message confidential
to this forum. I understand Gerry does allow these messages to be
posted over the internet, and they are not private, but I only wanted
to clarify that I had nothing with saying to anyone on this site what
Cheryl alleges above.
I never made that statement, nor did I imply it. She is entitled to
her own comments, but all it takes is someone to say to someone else
that I said that about this future paper, and it simply is not true.
Thank you for allowing me to clarify. Again, read Bob's site if you
want to see the history of the excommunications, and if you have
questions contact those excommunicated, and the Elders directly for
both sides of the story...should you so desire. If you don't want
your emails, comments or questions published on Bob's sites, I
recommend you specifically ask they be private otherwise they could
and will be published without your consent. This I know is possible.

is uncharitable to the extreme to discipline people on something that
was not clearly taught and for which supporting documentation was
found after the fact!

the other hand we are bold in Christ to say that some further Further
Remarks on the PPSA are now available, as in the first installment of
"A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste - Unless One is a Faithful Member
in Good Standing in the RPNA(GM) . " This addresses the instances
the PPSA tramples on and contradicts the light of natural reason, much
more reasonable arguments and as a consequence why the long running
United Negro College Fund slogan should apply to those who can swallow
the PPSA and the oath that supports it.
