Just a little clarification: I have pastored, yes, and do
work for ****** currently. But the project I am working
on is not a research project but rather a massive and multi-faceted
database and internet project. And, the name of ******
should be kept out of all these discussions entirely.
I have no problem with the need for confidentiality during
the process development phase. My only concern is that if it
does not go forward and resolution is not achieved on the various
issues, people have a right to know why, briefly if nothing else.
And given everything I've seen thus far, I'm not sure a mutually
agreed upon statement will do that.
I've been really concerned at all the negative insinuations
that have been made about ASI, Mark Finley, Elder Denslow, Garwin
McNeilus, and others, insinuations and accusations that can be
read by anyone in the world who wants to read them. I've personally
argued in one venue, successfully at times, that such evil surmising
is wrong unless there is solid evidence to back up such allegations.
What I am saying is that what we need in the end is to vindicate,
if at all possible, not just 3ABN. And I would hate to see a
situation in which ASI cannot come out of this smelling like
a rose simply because one party or another won't agree to an
honest, fairly stated statement that explains exactly who had
what concerns that kept the process from moving forward.
That's my concern. If this hinders me from being part of the
process, that might have to be the way it is.
Have a good Sabbath, God bless, and may God give all an extra
measure of His wisdom, humility, and compassion at this time.
