15431Re: On going events
- Mar 4, 2007Bob,
I wish not to get into a public debate with you on this matter. You
can say the following with confidence: "I am sure enough of a
hullabaloo can be made within the RPNA(GM) by the elders themselves,
if not their sycophantic followers, to persuade, if not hoodwink, the
gullible and immature in Christ into buying the argument that the
"sins" of these "conspiratorial" brethren are more than enough to
outweigh and overwhelm the shoddy scholarship, logical butcherwork and
fallacious arguments of the PPSA which preceded said "conspiracy."",
but I have not seen all the documents you have seen. I was never
invited to participate in this group, even though some of the members
recommended to me that I need to study the documents. I understand it
was only a study group for members in our church, and the first time I
ever heard about this group was from Shawn's published agology. There
were several people who were critical of me personally that I was
basically ignorant and blind to the truth, but yet nobody invited me
(or others I've asked) to be part of this group.
You can spin this any way you like, as I know on this web site you
have a lot of supporters, but I have not seen these documents, nor was
I ever invited to participate in your study group. Some have called
it a secret society you formed, others called it a study group that
was within our church. I never heard about either until recently.
Thus, don't start slamming me personally on this site, nor make any
statements that are offensive. Since this started when I was in
Africa I have read a substantial amount of materials on these issues,
and had many discussions with both the Elders as well as those who
have testified against the Elders. Unfortunately, half of what I read
from your comments I do not understand so any claims you make I take
with a grain of salt. I'm sure you don't understand me either, and
take what I say with even less authority, and would put me into the,
as you say, "sycophantic followers, to persuade, if not hoodwink, the
gullible and immature in Christ".
Whatever the case may be, I do not need to draw all these other people
into a public argument between myself, Cheryl, yourself and others who
support your cause. I'm going to wait until I see the documents from
the your private study group, and make my own decisions on the merits.
My decision is already made on the excommunications, and I support the
elders in their decisions. Obviously, we lost a lot of people in our
church, but thinking that those who stayed are a bunch of blind,
ignorant and "sycophantic followers" if not "hoodwink, the guilible
and immature in Christ" is foolish.
I think some of us who stayed are quite the opposite even in the face
of those supporters who would agree with you. Surely you don't agree,
but if you wish to keep bad mouthing us publically, I will leave this
forum immediately. I don't have any desire to offend you.
If this post gets through, I again ask you to leave it on this forum
and not post it to your site. Thank you.
