Dear brother Bot, I read your FWD: e-mail and thank you for letting me know about the joint report of bros. Bert and Lordy on their recent preaching trip in southern part of Mindanao. I admired their courage and strong determination on how they REBUKED and EXPOSED the ungodly activities and shameful situation in our area to our U.S. brethren half the world away!

I am glad that you received the forwarded e-mail message. Courageous!? Who are courageous? Are you sure they have the courage to confront the GenSAn preachers after what they had done?

I attest to (since I am living here in General Santos City) that the said anomalies they mentioned were widely known here. In fact, I made some measures to minimize it (in a Biblical way) if not totally eradicate the ungodly activities in the brotherhood.

Bot here:

Well, you are credible witness since you are residing in that place and I believe you. And I would like to commend you for your effort to correct their ungodly conduct. But these two has no business there since they are not living in that area. Who gave them the authority to be the watchdogs of the GenSAn people? Do you allow them to be your "Popes?" Do you believe that a preacher from a remote area can be an OVERSEER of the people in your place? Or do you believe that your congregation should have its own OVERSEERS? The bible said the overseer should be someone "among you."

You wrote:

Anyway, I agree with you that their EXPOSE become FAIR ENOUGH if they sent copies (cc) to all concerned (since they named names already) so that their RIGHTS will no be deprived and be given TIME and OPPORTUNITIES to DEFEND and SPEAK of THEMSELVES.

Bot here:

From his exchanges with Brother Gerry Ca-a, he [Editor's Note: "he" refers to Bert Enostcion] repeatedly admitted that he LIED and even deceived some people. He also admitted that he has a limited time to investigate and just trusted the information that that was supplied to him. If these two self appointed overseers were fair enough they will abide with Matthew 18: 15-18.

For me, Brother Bert is more AUTHORITIVE in REBUKING and EXPOSING...

Bot here:

What authority does he have? Who gave him such authority? Why should a liar and a self confess deceiver be an authority for the conduct of the GenSAn people?

You wrote:

...if it is true that he had a past record of the same offences that he is now (exposing) accusing but he is already forgiven. It's a lesson by experienced!

Bot here:

Are you sure? Have you talked to the people whom Bert had committed sins?

You wrote:

Brother Ron said: God will forgive our sins ONLY if we REPENT and BRING FORTH FRUITS MEET FOR REPENTANCE (Acts 8:22; Acts 26:20; 2 Cor. 7:10-11). Worldly, carnal sorrow experiences self-pity because of the hardships and heartaches resulting from ungodly attitudes and conduct. Godly sorrow seeks forgiveness from God and results in CHANGES of attitude and conduct."

Bot here:

Have you heard Bert repented of his sins? Is lying a fruit of repentance? Is deceiving a fruit of repentance? Is "not abiding with the agreement" a fruit of repentance?

May God bless you and keep you.
