Truth Seeker: Questions and comments:
Have you put together petitions, or had direct correspondence with the Four Square denomination? What was the result? I was thinking to myself “what is the point?” The obvious answer would be to keep Scribner from using the good name of the denomination to suck people into his world of manipulation… However if they (Four Square) do not have the heart to hear the truth, it leads me to my comments:
No, after much thought, discussing it with others and prayer I came to a similar conclusion, it was pointless to do a petition letter. However, I have some other ideas.
If you have taken a pro-active stance and your petition has fallen on deaf ears, aren’t all the updates on all the wrong doings in the church just more of the same that you dislike about the church? It reeks of bitterness and gossip…
The arguement you make, makes no sense. So if Foursquare does take action against Scribner because of the updates here on the web site, then I am not bitter or a gossiper?
Have you found a church that fulfills you spiritually? I find it far more effective to pray for my brothers and sisters who are still trapped in Scribner’s web. In more than one case I have had the opportunity to bring fellow LH members to my new church and show them how things are without the manipulative dictatorship.
I have decided to take a break from going to a "church" for spiritual fulfillment. I go to a few Bible studies and I just got back visiting a missionary friend this weekend. To me, that is fulfilling, serving others without any strings attached, all in the name of the Jesus. I am glad that you have reached out to the hurting LH people. They need all the encouragement they can get.
I don’t know you (though in reality I probably do), so I may be way off base, but you seems to be focusing on whatever hurt the LH has caused you rather than going forward and fulfilling whatever plan God has for you.
Actually, I have a very fulfilled life. The surf is great out here! I don't think about this all day long. Heck, I haven't read or posted here for over ten days. Do I care? Yes. I am passionate about exposing the manipulation and conning? Absolutely. Spiritual abuse is just like physical abuse, it leaves a lot of pain and scars. So I so say a few words here on a message board. Maybe somebody will listen and somebody will care enough to do what is right someday.
We know what the LH is guilty of, if there is ever a meeting with the denomination to consider the expulsion of its (LH) leadership I will be present. Until then I will continue to pray for those hurt by the LH and those still trapped in its web. The “Jane Doe said this”, and “Joe Blow said that”, however, makes us no better than them...
Well, don't hold your breath waiting for Foursquare. Keep praying though, God is bigger than them. Thanks for you comments.
