Can you imagine the Catholic Church doing this to someone? There would be an International uproar.

Well no . This i agree

But lets still not overlook, that unlike the Exclusive Brethren. The Catholic church is also in fact a group that’s just far too widely well known, to even “be able” to continue to “fly under the radar” for as long as like what many other smaller religious groups are still able to

This is the big difference

For this reason, when problems have been uncovered (Like sex abuses that the Catholic church refused to address)then there has been an international uproar

Sadly this feeling, of caring, doesn’t seem to extend to harm being also caused by small cults and many other smaller abusive religious groups too. In that sense the caring is likely more connected to religious pride. After all, the Catholic church is also supposed to be almost like the grand crown jewel representing Christianity generally.

When troubles within the Catholic Church are uncovered.Then the widespread shame of it,even among Christian, is far too sorely felt.Raw to the eye.Cutting to the heart of the Christian movement. Therefore there is also far less option, available,for Christian folk to feel able to just brush it aside.To even feel able to declare it a case of a few wayward Christians having gone astray

This is the main difference

And yet these problems do run far deeper.These problems are actually common within far too many different religious groups.Not that so many Christians (in general) will ever care to really want to simply admit it.For if Christians were to need to admit such, is also for Christians to also need to accept, that their long held claim to have been “followers of Jesus”,is then publicly cast into some doubt as well too.Christians are then faced with the dreaded thought that perhaps this feeling of Christian superiority has been built far more on a foundation of pride, rather than any thoughtful carefully questioned ground of solid truth

Christian have helped spread the gospel to mankind ? .. pfttttt

If Christians had been honestly spreading the gospel among mankind.Then how the hell would these widespread acts of religious tyranny, ever even been able to find ground to take root ?

It wouldn’t have happen

Don’t forget.Jesus wasn’t someone to care to “bother” to beat around the bush, when faced with any sign that the temple was being turned into a den of robbers.Jesus had little interest in need of retaining respect of other human.More important was love and honesty of caring.Evidently he promptly acted to try and put a stop to religious tyranny and commercialism than stem from it. And then even ended up being crucified,perhaps mainly for daring to be too actively caring

Christians (in general) have not helped to spread the “gospel of freedom” like what Jesus was actively interested in championing

So perhaps, it’s about time Christian, in general, all stepped down off that high horse together?.

I feel.Christians, in general, have little right to claim to follow in Jesus footsteps

And these same people will look you in the eye and say their mission in life is to ‘spread the gospel to all mankind’.

end quote (my bold)

Well so many Christian can all easily look us in the eye and pretend like they really do care?.Claim to be helping to spread the gospel?. And yet, too often, peoples actions will still speak far louder than what their words ever do?

So why have we been forced to need watch while our generations lives be left to be ruined and whittled away and wasted by tyranny and commercialization within the Christian church?. If not for the fact that its also been something rather commonly widespread among groups of Christians

It’s a shambles

No good sense in anyone continually trying to deny it either?.Does  “honestly believe” that a few small religious groups, could  have (some how)been able to carry enough clout,  on their own, so as to ward-off demand for change ?

Let’s “get real” here. Lets not bother to beat around the bush

The larger Christian groups also haven’t seen it as being in their own interest,either, to want to actively step in and intervene.It wasn’t in their own interest to do so.And that’s because they also still actively enjoyed the commercialization aspects as well too within the Christian church?

 

I feel i need to ask why do so many people caught up within degree’s of religious tyranny,do us all a disservice ?. To dare to continue to deny it

I fail to understand that

Freedom should be made available for everyone of us?.Together we stand. Divided we may fail (as,for sure, some will be left-out?,and will be left behind.Unless we stand together and demand for our freedom) This will only happen, once we become willing to address the root of the problem

How many generations, now, have some Christians been staunchly continually refusing to accept this?

I “don’t understand”, how someone who has personally experienced the tyranny of exclusive brethren,themselves, can then also seem to be so-willing to want to turn a blind eye to how many “other groups” also suffer the same way, and how widespread the problem is

Don’t they care?

What else can it be? .Other than perhaps pride,that Christianity in general,cannot dare to ever be thought, to perhaps be partly at fault

I will not rest, until freedom and religious liberty is being more honestly upheld for all people (children included).I don’t even care if some people will despise me for this

Besides.What do i have to lose ?.True friends ?.Company of honestly caring folk?

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.
