Daniel,

Please discontinue (permanently) feeding 'ROCK'-ON-LINE echo to

SOUND DOCTRINE BBS.

Several sysops have either called or sent netmail to me to

express their anguish about the attacks made to them and to

their users by users of Sound Doctrine.

As of late, Doug Moore of CfC #11 has been kind enough to remove

some of the more offensive messages before they are networked

further east.

In as much as I had hoped my messages to ALL and everyone elses

reminders about what the echo is about and what should/could be

discussed on it would have made things clear, users of Sound

Doctrine have repeatedly ignored all our requests and continued

writing whatever they want.

On the other hand, please CONTINUE to feed the echo to THE QUEST

BBS and any other interested BBS in your area who understands

the rules of my echo and want to enjoy the fellowship with us!

Thank you!

Diane Gambino

'ROCK'-ON-LINE echo moderator

P.S. Would appreciate if you would please acknowledge that you

have received this netmail message. Thanks again.

 

WHERE ARE THE FACTS?

 

[1] Ever since Diane Gambino asked us to stop posting

any messages that disagreed with her we have.

Those are the facts!

 

ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ"

SCRIPTURAL STEPS

ÈÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ

We demand that they respond to us in a Biblical manner.

And all SYSOPS should cancel their receiving of this echo

until such takes place. Otherwise why call yourself a

Christian echo.

Matthew 18:15-17

"If your brother sins against you,

go and show him his fault, just between the two of you.

If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.

But if he will not listen, take one or two others along,

so that `every matter may be established by the testimony

of two or three witnesses.' If he refuses to listen to them,

tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to

the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector."

[1] Scripture is clear that we should have received at least

two warnings.

[2] The second warning of course coming with two witnesses.

[3] The accusation that other Sysops have called her to

express their concern at our "attacks" must be proven!

Who are these men/women? What proof do they have? And

where is the love to give us a chance to repent? Where

is the grace to answer these individuals?

 

ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ"

DOUG MOORE & DIANO GAMBIO

ÈÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ

[4] Doug Moore has never taken the common love (that these

groups profess they have more of) to contact us about

the matter of repentance. What messages were unrespectful

and unloving? Where is the proof?

[5] Diano Gambio asks for our comments then kicks us off when

we discuss scripture. Two sample messages follow. The

complete file can be download from the Sound Doctrine BBS.

-----------------------------------------

You also "thanked" me for raising the question about Dion. Do

you remember? Now, since others are offended by a discussion

of scripture concerning CHRISTIAN MUSIC you want me to shut

up. So be it, I will post only positive songs and announcements.

(Hope you sent a personal message to those who discussed Sound

Doctrine on this board. Or are they allowed because they talk

negative about what you agree with too?)

 

-> (I am asking you the above questions not to light

You asked for the "FORUM" to start. By the way that is a very

biblical thing to want. You also wrote to me that "IT IS TIME

THESE PERTINENT MUSICAL

QUESTIONS AND IDEAS" are discussed. So we did. Then the fire

started to get too hot and you seem to want to please men

rather than God. And not only do that, but BLAME me for

causing the trouble!

Galatians 1:10 Am I now trying to win the approval of men,

or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying

to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.

Much grace to you,

Tim

John,

Did I identify with the "purpose" or not? Please read the

I was "THANKED" for my "IMPUT".

Sorry that so many are offended at the Word of God.

You may want to listen to the words in some of to Michael Cards

songs,

"A rock that makes men stumble...."

Tim

JOH 6:60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, "This is

a hard teaching. Who can accept it?" JOH 6:61 Aware that his

disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, "Does

this offend you? JOH 6:62 What if you see the Son of Man

ascend to where he was before! JOH 6:63 The Spirit gives

life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to

you are spirit and they are life.

------------> end of sample message <---------

She encouraged us and said there were good questions that needed

to be asked. It was only when others objected that the false

accusations came about. For proof see the message base file.

"Fear of man will prove to be a snare,

but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe."

-Proverbs 29:25

ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ"

ATTACKED SYSOPS?

ÈÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ

 

[6] Where is the proof of the Sysops we attacked?

Please provide names and messages where these

Sysops were attacked. Let us have a chance

to call them. Not to mention they should have

called us first.

[7] As one reads through the file it is extremely clear that

the message was not sent to "ALL". No one else

was chastised for the blatant slanderous attacks on us.

We discussed scripture in relationship to music and were

told to leave. They rip us apart and receive no message

from the moderator.

[8] Again, let it be repeated that we stopped posting

messages that went against Diane's opinion and agreed

to post only "positive" messages. Please demonstrate

how we (whoever "we" is) kept on attacking. We

answered questions some users had asked, but that was

the most. In fact, I haven't even been on the Rock-On

Line for almost 4 weeks. (This accusation is amazing)

Of course no messages were left to the users who

questioned the scriptures we left.

[9] In fact, we told others that kept asking us questions

that such questions were not allowed on this board.

It is not Sound Doctrine that should be kicked off but

those who continue to ask the questions and just enjoy

spreading false rumors about us. In fact we were so

maligned that when we said that we could not discuss

such issues on this message base we were accused of

"whining"!!

Subj: REPLY TO MSG# 6007 (Re: HAIR)

 

 

TW: "We are not permitted to discuss these things on Rock-On-

Line."

You're still whining, Tim.

SHOULD EXPECT LOVE AND THE BIBLE

 

As a SYSOP of a "Christian BBS" should we not expect the

Bible and love to be the foremost things present? Especially in

this matter of Christain music? For it is in this matter of

music that we are admonished to let the Word of God dwell in us

"richly".

Colossians 3:16 "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as

you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you

sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your

hearts to God."

All Christian Sysops should be highly concerned at the unbibical

nature of what is taking place here. They should voice their

concerns to the offending parties so that all can grow in

righteousness. If you remain silent and are more worried about

offending people then you are a source of the sin and

compromise. Again, I agreed to post only "positive" messages and

have held to it. There was no biblical reason for this action to

be taken. Show no favortism to any man and righteousness shall

once again be found in the church and on our BBSs. It is an

extremely sad situation when the discussion of scripture is no

longer allowed on "Christian" BBSs. We should all be extremely

alarmed at such quenching of the Spirit!

We regret deeply that this rebuke had to go public. But the sin

of others left us no choice.

Galatians 2:14

"When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of

the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all,..."

I will be awaiting a personal phone call (303) 690-0920 [call

collect if you wish] from Diane and Doug so that they can

present the facts of this case and give me (us) a chance to

repent.

For further files on this matter call the Sound Doctrine BBS at

(303) 680-7209.

 

In much love and grace,

 

Tim & Mike

 

Matthew 5:23-26 "Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the

altar and there remember that your brother has something against

you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and

be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.

"Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to

court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may

hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to

the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. I tell you the

truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.
