Timothy Gaines' strong message to Stryper

<<I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
1 Corinthians 1:10 >>

The situation between Stryper and Timothy Gaines reminds me of John Lennon when he married with Yoko Ono, from that moment on, things weren't the same in the Beattles. It also reminds me of some Mexican soap operas.
Timothy has alleged that he and his current wife have been repeatedly offended by the fans, but every time he tries to defend his position it sounds rude and hostile to his fellow band members.

Although the rest of the band hasn't said much about it through social networks, Timothy Gaines continues to make strong comments about this situation. This seems like a big contradiction, since it should be the band who should defend themselves against Tim's comments.

This time Tim has made strong comments by saying that Oz and Robert live a life of mediocrity, making mention of "stand up to that pathetic one and his conniving wife,"and that his departure from Stryper is because "he has testicles".

"My recent demise within the Stryper camp came about because I actually have testicles. I stood my ground when I was told to give up the woman I love, (who is now my wife) or get fired. I threatened to sue. I was "conveniently" fired 10 days after my marriage to Brandee, on the grounds that I made some posts threatening to sue the band for wrongful termination. They called it "threats." 

My recommendation to Oz and Bob? Grow some balls and stand up to that pathetic one and his conniving wife, or just continue to live a life of mediocrity. You both have been threatened with termination over the last several years. He has a million dollar home. You rent and drive 20 year old broken down cars. You both have NOTHING to show for your 35 years. Quit playing rock star and get a clue dumbshitz."

Hours later the post was deleted from your page, adding a new post saying:

No member of the band reacted to Timothy's comments, which proves the announcement made by the band weeks ago on its official Facebook

It's a pity that a situation like this is being presented in the most important Christian metal band in history, and in such a rude and unprofessional way. On the other hand, this shows that they are also people with problems and difficult situations. 

When Jesus was among us, he had many disciples, but there were twelve who chose for something even more special, that is very similar to what has happened with Stryper. Many rock and metal bands with Christian message were in the 70s and 80s, but it was Stryper the band that God chose to come to shine at the top with large non-Christian bands, something that no other Christian band of the time could achieve. And as I said before, that is no coincidence, it is the grace of God that was manifested in the four members of Stryper. 

Although Timothy Gaines's departure from Stryper is official, I have faith that in the not too distant future this can be resolved.

There's definitely more to this story than we know, and to be honest it's better this way. It had to have been like this from the beginning, and if any of you can read this, I can only tell you to stay in prayer and not to speak badly or offend each other, after all, you are still brothers in faith and music,  stop shouting for social networks and to say everything to God through your prayers.

I would like to be able to see Stryper in a few years making a great farewell tour with all their oiginal members, just like Motley Crue did.

All I have to do is tell everyone to pray for Stryper, for each of their members and families, so that God will take control of their lives and that their holy spirit will guide them on the right path.
