Okay…I have to occasionally remind myself that the Tactics posts I am currently commenting on were written just about four years ago. So, this post, 007, was most likely an exciting one for Tactics to write, and probably was exciting for most Tactics’ followers to read. And while I am pretty sure that I read this one when it was first published, I definitely wasn’t writing my commentary yet.
Therefore, it’s difficult to remember my initial reaction, and I must admit, that reading it today in March 2018, I may or may not have a different take on 007 today over what I might have written then.
Regardless, let’s start with Dictionary.com’s definition of spy. I looked at several other dictionary sources, but this one seemed to be the most comprehensive. Be sure to take note of emphasized definitions in bold:
Noun, plural spies.
- a person employed by a government to obtain secret information or intelligence about another, usually hostile, country, especially with reference to military or naval affairs.
- a person who keeps close and secret watch on the actions and words of another or others.
- a person who seeks to obtain confidential information about the activities, plans, methods, etc., of an organization or person, especially one who is employed for this purpose by a competitor: an industrial spy.
- the act of spying.
Verb (used without object), spied, spying.
- to observe secretly or furtively with hostile intent (often followed by on or upon).
- to act as a spy; engage in espionage.
- to be on the lookout; keep watch.
- to search for or examine something closely or carefully.
Verb (used with object), spied, spying.
- to catch sight of suddenly; espy; descry: to spy a rare bird overhead.
- to discover or find out by observation or scrutiny (often followed by out).
- to observe (a person, place, enemy, etc.) secretively or furtively with hostile intent.
- to inspect or examine or to search or look for closely or carefully.
Now that you’ve read what the world has to say about spies, let’s take a peek at what the Bible has to say. There were spies in the Old and New Testaments. There were spies for the “good guys” and there were spies for the “bad guys.”
Good Guys: Moses sent spies out into the land, as did Joshua (remember Rahab?), Joseph, and David.
Bad Guys: The New Testament talks about the Pharisees spying on Jesus to entrap him.
But, I think that my choice to help expound on this commentary comes from one of my favorite books in the Bible, Galatians: “But it was because of the false brethren secretly brought in, who had sneaked in to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, in order to bring us into bondage.” (Galatians 2:4).
Why would this Scripture be pertinent to what Tactics and we ex-CTers are doing?
Tactics approaches his/her post purely from two sides:
- Bob Scott considers Tactics a spy within his cult, Calvary Temple.
- Tactics firmly believes (as do I) that if Bob Scott were a true man of God, even if there were spies in Calvarytempleland, it wouldn’t matter. Bob would be speaking of only Biblical matters; therefore, nothing or no one [should] would report anything negative about him or his “church” (cult).
Tactics says this about Wolf Bob Scott:
“If pastor has freedom in Christ (as the Bible teaches), he does not need to be concerned about a spy; unless, according to 1 Peter 2:16 pastor is using his liberty as a cloak for maliciousness (synonym of: abusiveness, cruelty, loathing, scorn, hatred, horror, distaste, enmity, repugnance, meanness, spite, revulsion, viciousness, etc.).”
This leads me to my point about the Galatians verse.
I believe that Tactics was once a very good Bobite, that is until the Holy Spirit opened his/her eyes and finally saw Bob Scott for what he is. If anyone is a spy, it’s Bob Scott! He is a “false brethren” who has stolen/taken the CT congregants “liberty in Christ and brought them back into bondage.”
Remember, Jesus came to set us free. Bob Scott and his perverted and twisted Scripture not only puts people back in chains, but this wolf also tramples the precious blood of Jesus under his feet. Bob Scott, because of his atrocious acts perpetrated over more than 40 years, is the spy that Galatians speaks of; that God warns us about all through that precious book.
Let’s bring this full circle. The title of this piece is “007”. Remember, there are good spies and bad spies.
Tactics is our “007” – one of the good guys.
Bob Scott? He is a bad, bad spy; a very bad man; a wolf in sheep’s clothing; someone to stay far away from, and stay out of his little, puny cult located in Sterling, VA.
To all, please, may I remind you that Calvary Temple members are under an active investigation by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) for child sexual abuse. CT has long been identified as a cult whose members, while seemingly nice, actively seek to recruit. And remember, Bob Scott cares nothing about you – he ONLY cares about himself, his riches and possessions, and his little kingdom.
Do. Not. Enter.
