Greg, Could you please tell us why you have asked Frank to leave Sermon Index? I believe that this thing can be worked out if handled in the right way.

I'm sure I am clueless, but I am absolutely blown away by this...
SI has established rules for the benefit and saftey of all of us. Let me give an example:I have a Personal Conviction Similer to that of Bro Keith Daniels When it comes to the Translation issue.Now SI has rules in place that says I am not allowed to only post on that issue because than it would be considered an agenda or a platform. Every once in a while that issue will come up and I am righly allowed to defend my perspective even though it is not widly excepted on SI.Now Those rules protect me, Because it is real easy to get swept away on that type of an issue, believing all along that I am defending the truth, the message that God wants me to proclaim. And many many do, Most of the books that I have on the issue are an embarrassment. because they took a rightful conviction and turned it into an obsession.These rules protect us from being overtaken by obsessions.
This is what Frank wrote on his blog today publically I think it summarizes what he really feels:Hi sister. Thank you for your comment and I wanted you to know that you and a couple of others have been the only reason that I have continued to interact with Sermon Index which has long since lost the place. I think if you were to check out the devotional section you would see a barren wasteland of no replies. It is akin t a church with no prayer meeting. It is very sad to see it go in such a way but this is what comes when men are determined to be in control and God does not have the place. I will certainly keep in touch sister, we are kindred spirits because we have been baptized into the one Spirit with one heart that beats in love with Jesus our Lord who is preeminent in our lives. I have met so many saints over the years where there is an instant fellowship and love and friendship and loyalty. Now, with the religious man, there is none of that, quite the opposite. As Tozer said ” The once born man is always the deadliest enemy of the twice born man.” …………bro FrankWe are going to lock the thread as per the suggestion of brother Mark. I would encourage saints to please pray for the ministry of SermonIndex, the moderators and for all the people that interact on the forums. We have so many precious saints who are on the forums and to see division amongst radical believers is very sad, there is so much wrong in christianity and to start to divide amongst ourselves of who is really "in" is quite sad. May the Lord allow us to show love to each other and be willing to yield and humble ourselves to others and not think we need to be right.this thread is locked.
