Ahhhh the "GET OVER IT!" mantra.
Next, it will be "You are just bitter!"
And then it will be "Can't you just move on?"
As I have learned these are the typical CFMisms that you have learned from Scribner and Mitchell to parrot back to those who have concerns about the church and it's direction.
You don't want to deal with the issues!
Can't you intelligently respond to the letter than attack me?
Or do you just want to keep your head in the sand and ignore the fact that Scribner is mixed up with a cultic group?
BTW, I wasn't even in the church at the time, but I do know quite a few people who were there and have shared with me the letters, emails, and even the tapes of Scribner's repugnant sermons during that time.
Open your eyes, lilmissxtian.
its been almost three years since this incident happened...
GET OVER IT!
Are you mad because you were one of the ones asked to leave?
A Truth Seeker
Frank, what are your thoughts about this "3 days to repent" correspondence that Rob Scribner and Harrison Sommer wrote to those who wanted nothing to do with Wayman Mitchell in their Foursquare church anymore?
Here is that letter again:
The Lighthouse Church
Our church has just been put through a very difficult and divisive time. The difficulty and division has been as a result of a few individuals who were in disagreement with and/or antagonistic to the vision of the church, its direction and its leadership. It became clear that the goal of these individuals was a complete disassociation with Christian Fellowship Ministries and/or the removal of Pastor Rob by the leadership of the Foursquare denomination. Public statements and criticisms were made by these individuals which, in many instances, did not reflect the truth or the motive, attitude or heart of the pastors.
It is our belief that these actions were wrong and were designed to divide with the ultimate purpose of taking the church in a different direction.
We believe that you were one of these individuals either by your statements or associations. * It is unclear as to whether or not you desire to continue to be a part of the Lighthouse Church. If you do, it is our position that you must recognize that your actions were wrong, that you repent of your wrons and that you can, with a pure heart, commit to the direction of The Lighthouse Church and submit to and support the pastoral leadership of Pastor Rob. Anything short of that would not be in keeping with sound biblical teaching.
This is not in the spirit of retaliation, but rather reconciliation, if that is possible.
If you are unable or unwilling to do what is set forth in this letter, then it is our position that you find another church where you will be able to fully support the pastor and direction of the church. We believe that this is the way that Jesus would have it and how He would conduct His church.
Unless you directly contact one of us to discuss your continuing association or membership at The Lighthouse within 3 days, we will understand that you either cannot or will not seek reconciliation and will no longer attend or have any association with The Lighthouse Church. In that case, we ask that you do not continue to speak against The Lighthouse or its' leadership as we believe that would be coming against a work of God. This would be of no benefit to anyone.
When Jesus prayed for His disciples, He prayed that they be one as He and The Father are one. Unless that unity is at the center of the church, we go against the Gospel and His will.
We stand firm on the essential of unity and hope that you can understand its' necessity and importance.
In His Grace,
Pastor Rob (Scribner) Pastor Harrison (Sommer)
* You are receiving this letter because you were at the meeting on June 3rd or if you did adopt the spirit of those that are spoken of in this letter then you too should acknowledge that it was wrong, repent and decide if you are going to stay at the Lighthouse in agreement with its current direction and Pastor Rob.
