The Crisis in Confidence in The Church

Not so surprising really is it .

Quote : Today’s a good day to realistically assess how much trust and confidence your community has in your leadership and in that of your ministry

Why would there be much good reason for any real confidence in Christianity ?.

They stand by while abusive churches run riot hurting people left right and centre , and then they do nothing better than throwing around a few words calling the abusive churches out as being the ones who are unchristian .

Pot calling kettle black.

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.

    What is up? That picture of the “Big Butter Jesus” or “giant touchdown Jesus” is about 15 minutes from my house. We pass it all the time. The first time I saw it I thought it was hilarious. I was with my Pastor and his wife the first time she saw it, it was at night and it was all lit up. That girl didn’t stop laughing for about 30 minutes. I do like it and am glad it was there, I guess they might build a bigger, better “Big Butter Jesus”. That’s what we all call it around here.

    I’ve never been to church there. My Nephew went there for awhile. Then he ended up at my church.

    My wife just walked in and I must go visit. I haven’t seen her all day.

    Peace G, feeno

      Hey Feen yeah i do like sculptures even ones supposed to be of Jesus . I just thought well isnt that kind of appropriate in some ways . Because to me it seems faith is about ready to disintegrate . With the help of the faithful who stand by and doing nothing much to try and stop it .

      Hey Feen hope you having a great weekend.

      Later !
