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?
Forgive me, in re-reading my post I definitely did not state this as clearly as I could have. I was not trying to imply that lack of action, or rejection of action by the denomination, was what brought the tone of bitterness or gossip. I think the "he said, she said" portions of this thread just rub me the wrong way.
Your personal testimony is powerful, and helped me put my finger on many things I had been feeling for years (as have those of others). Hearsay lacks the credibility of personal testimony. Reading posts of “Jane Doe says that…” Made me feel like a middle-aged house-wife reading The Enquirer in the supermarket – trying to get the dirt, but not necessarily having the credible source.
In short: I think we can agree that the Four Square is going to do nothing. Others will find this site and add their personal testimony, thus 2+2=”4” - or in this case “cult”. As such, I personally believe that our efforts are better spent in prayer for those still there, and in building/maintaining personal relationships with those still there, and God willing seeing them free of The Lighthouse Church.
