Well another year has started.
Feb already - time waits for no man !
mmm I rarely think about the CAI these days, but do so every so often.
I suppose many of us do.
So, what will happen in 2013.
Will Andrew Vidler and others awaken and realise the errors of their ways?
Will Scott be brought again before court ?
- will he miraculously be healed... (but that would mean he'd have to go to court).
- importantly will he repent and voluntarily confess/admit to the abuses (psychological/financial or otherwise).
Will there be another exodus of members from the ranks of the CAI?
So, a message to you folks at CAI, (because it's not as if you don't monitor the cult forum!)...
I like your website (it's looking good), you 've spent a lot of effort re-spinning your message and moderating your image.
And yes, well done standing up and being proud of yourselves - nothing to hide have you
It's very commendable you post so, but I still can't help comparing to Arian/German propaganda of the 1930's... it's less obvious than our HV videos from the 90's.
Well folks, we know you are very dedicated to the Lord, but you don't have a monopoly on His Blessings. I reckon that He 'll use you where he can, but you are very-special needs in his church. May be quarantining Scott at PHQ is the Lords way of damage-limitation ! :-)
You are also extremely hardworking as well - this is to be admired (genuine praise here) but Grace saves you - not works, so try not to be too hard on the members when they fail, they are long suffering as it is. My hope is, you 'll see this year, that, unfortunately you're misguided.
It's an appalling truth ... sorry
The most important point really is, will 2013 be the big year for the CAI ?
Will this be the year you folks realise that, well you've got some fundemental errors with your doctrines.
....Hey(!) didn't Scott in the 1990's (semi-prophecise) that the year you compromise the doctrines, that's when you'll experience massive revival ??.... why not lads.... give it a go.
but you'll need to get your house in order as well.
- your founder Scott, who we all believed and trusted, and was the Whitest-of-the-White, even more white than Gandalf the White wizard (!), and who also was bestest mate's with Aslan no less (!), how come he was/is? involved in some serious accusations 2011-12 in Australian courts.... haven't you boys sorted this mess out?
So make sure you let us know when scott is healed and is health is in order, (now that you're real open and stuff) and may be encourage him voluntarily come forward. You know the world is a lot more liberal, and may be it's time you had an openly gay pastor. Really lads (!) if you really loved him (spirtually) why would you let him in a mens night ... a room of semi-naked men writhing and massaging one-another while watching films. Aren't you tempting fate (and flesh)?
Even you Andrew, I honestly believe you can change.
- we Ex-ers have taken pleasure in (but sometimes genuinely from a place of pain) cast you as the Big Meany
- you caused a lot of damage to peoples souls over the years.
- you hurt a lot of people
- personally I can now forgive you.
- I do still hope you can dig deep inside and look at your soul, like some of your (old) friends have done and change.
It'll likely be hard, VERY VERY HARD, but it gets better.
- you know you're doctrines are wrong.
- it's time to sort it out.
- hopefully you'll have the courage to do so.
- may be you can help some of the others also to A) Change B)if not, leave
may be this could be your year !
.... Andrew Schindler of the CAI !!! --- leading people to truth and out of CAI-error, what a vision :-)
- have faith
- you're our man for the job.
Best of luck
... Really. I mean it,
It"s never too late to leave. Even if yon"ve been in the Assembly a long time.
