From the Addendum to Marching to Zion:  http://gcxweb.org/Misc/LarryPile-03-11-2006.aspx


... These two communications are evidence that Great Commission has not been very forthright with its members about the abusive teachings and practices of its past. Not that every church with a problemed past needs to dwell on that. But it should acknowledge it, describe how it has learned and grown from (and away from) it, and emphasize its desire to glorify God by building healthy disciples of Christ. The past can, and should, be a source of learning. As George Santayana said: Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.

You continue to promote false stories amongst yourselves, yet you are unwilling to face Him publishing about these things?  What does that mean? Are you actually under the opinion that your constant slander and gossip is righteous?  If you want to be on the podcast you can prove yourself and your accusations once and for all!  When will you do the right thing on behalf of the many you have poisoned and been postponed by?  PROVE your accusations.  Jim is available.  Why are you hesitant?  If there's anyone actually still reading this stuff, don't you think these people should oppose Jim face to face?

Jim is not available.  You want us  to go to him - it is he who should come to us.

A long time ago, I heard an interview with the author of a book simply titled Power. (It may have been the book by Michael Korda, but I don't remember for sure.) According to this author, one important way to assert power was, "Don't go to them. Make them come to you."

By the way, the person quoted above, Vince Capobianco, was asked repeatedly to show even one lie about McCotter on this forum. He never did.
