I can only imagine that you are on staff or an elder at RLC as you wrote,
“But everyone needs to know that this has never been nor will it ever be the desire of Tony or the elders. Their desire is for everyone to fall in love with Christ and to become disciples of Him alone. Even the discipleship that takes place is to teach people to obey Christ’s commands, recognizing that people are only disciples of Christ (and not a man). [b:c81a157177][u:c81a157177]But, again, this has been abused by many with their own agendas.”[/u:c81a157177][/b:c81a157177]
(Those were your words)
Knowing that people were and have lead others astray with a personal agendas the leadership has keep silent. You have turned a blind eye and you have not exposed the false teachers for who they are. You have allowed the false teachings to continue to weave throughout the ministry at RLC. Sadly leadership is clinging so tightly to your [b:c81a157177]Covering [/b:c81a157177]dogma.. that sme how it will all get worked out.
You’re all keeping to the mission at hand. As long as there are new people coming into the fellowship it does not matter how many people may leave the church fellowship.
