July 27, 2008

Considering the unconscionable disgrace of the PCUSA's so-called "war chest" targeting congregations which have separated to be faithful as opposed to those of us who are remaining to be faithful, I thought I'd forward on some of my rationale for remaining to be faithful, uh, faithfully.

As a dear friend barked out so precisely, I do not claim my rationale is perfect nor do I pretend Not One Penny is the only approach or even the best approach to ameliorating anything in the formerly faithful franchise.

But it is an approach.

It doesn't just sit there, wring hands, and sing, "Somewhere over the rainbow..."

It doesn't fall into Flounder's omission as noted by Otter: "Face it, Flounder! You @#$% up! You trusted us!"

It doesn't jibe with those employing the same old same old which is destined to produce the same old same old...

So I don't mind if you criticize what I've reasoned and prayed to be my rationale for remaining to be faithful faithfully and I don't think Jim Yearsley (who I helped a tad in the Not One Penny initiative) minds either.

But please don't bother to send those inane rationalizations for feeding the beast and its buddies who advocate, enable, and accommodate who and what are anathema to Biblical Christianity as upheld by our constitution so far yet so precariously to Jim or me.

Just remember what the great and late President of PTS and WARC said to some mush-brained seminarians on the 5th floor of Baltimore's Hilton Hotel in the mid 70s during a previous GA: "Do something for Christ's sake! I really don't care what you do; but do something for Christ's sake!"

Lord, have mercy on the PCUSA, those who separated to be faithful, and those remaining to be faithful.

Blessings and Love!
