WOW – AMEN
Luke 12 v 16 – 21 ” Then He ( Jesus ) spoke a parable to them , saying , the ground of a certain rich man yielded plenty-fully. And he thought within himself , saying , What shall I do , since I have no room to store my crops.? So he said , I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater , and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul , Soul , you have many goods laid up for many years ; take your ease ; eat drink and be merry. But God said to him , FOOL , this night your soul will be required of you ; then whose will those things be which you have provided .?
So is he who lays up treasure for himself , and is not rich toward God .”
When the final reckoning takes place before a thrice Holy God – where will you stand. Being a member of the Brethren cannot save , will not save , does not save – I am not saved by a ” Position ” , I am saved by a Person , the Lord Jesus Christ .
I am reminded of the Church at Laodicea – Christ said in Revelation 3 v 16 – 17 ” So then , because you are lukewarm , and neither cold nor hot , I will vomit you out of My mouth . Because you say , I am rich , have become wealthy , and have need of nothing – and do not know that you are wretched , miserable , poor , blind and naked.”
This , sadly , depicts what the Exclusive Brethren have become.
Bruce , you are taking your followers to HELL in the course you have chosen to pursue.
arfur chooses to lay his treasure up in a heaven he hopes for. A heaven he is also unable to prove even exists.
He will have already paid dearly with his own earthly life (while we likewise are also all forced to have our own live wagered with as well too, on the lottery of eternity ) whether this heaven exist or doesn’t exist. And this is a situation that in the mind of the brainwashed theist will still tend to seem entirely fair and just (In the mind of the theist, human earthly lives are devalued )
Theist have been happily wagering with human earthly lives for many thousands of years already now.They happily slaughtered people accused of heresy.They happily slaughtered people they accused of witchcraft too.Few will have lost much sleep over it. They don’t mind one bit, they don’t even care less about human earthly lives that have already been wasted away on aspect of faith belief. All that matters to the theist-mind is the slim possibility that they hope they might be somehow able to gain in the long run real big-time themselves
Arfur wont shed a tear for all the billions of people who’s earthly lives have already been wasted away on the whim of people’s hope of obtaining their own eternal life (for themselves). Hell no . These theist belief have long been traditional in this harsh and uncaring manner . And the collateral amount of earthly live lost in the process, is hardly worth even contemplating in any great depth (the motto being just keep your mind occupied on the end results that you would faithfully hope to be able to achieve for yourself)
Selfishness of the highest degree ?
Well lets face it the Brethren will do likewise too (few will ever even bother to contemplate the loss of earthly live that any ex brethren have lost out on due to Brethren faith belief) . As it’s a theist tradition world-wide. Existing right across the many different domination’s as well too
Meanwhile these theist have no conscience in regard to the amount of collateral damage that their own faith belief is in effect helping to cause.
There is widespread feeling of indifference existing in regard to this matter
They (the faithful) will die feeling morally wonderfully superior about themselves as well too ?
God is good evidently
In future time to come, when more people will finally begin to realize that these faiths were in fact fruitless wishful thinking. Folk that will be alive on earth by then , will very likely just merely shrug their shoulders and simply declare “man oh man those lot were a real bunch of silly idiots weren’t they then?”
But hey, There is always a “cost to somebody” when false faiths are being allowed to be promoted widely with such indifference in regards to who-else is also being hurt in the process. There is a cost to the bullshit lie of freedom of religion that’s been portrayed as a reality, when the truthful fact is it doesn’t honestly actually even exist (unless anybody seriously consider that such depth of lie wouldnt also be likely to be expected to need to cause real extreme harm to some folks)
No good sense in crying over spilled milk, is there? .Far more good sense to be sure to see that it doesn’t ever need to occur in the first place
It been a theist-tradition to care little about the lives of other folk they choose to wager with in hope of obtaining their own piece of eternity . Even the Aztec were also involved in sacrificing the live of other folk as well too, doing so with little conscience in regard to their own part in it themselves (for this is the value that people faith have traditionally bestowed on the earthly lives of some human)
Its long been a theist tradition. arthur like the brethren folk merely help to carry this torch on into the future
None of them will ever bother to care to lose much sleep over the amount of harm that their faith may have helped to cause to other people
Like any gambler. All that matters most in life, is what happen to help please the gambler themselves the most
No different in regard to the faith gamble
It never occur to these folk that Jesus was heard asking why God had failed him, while on the cross (perhaps God failed Jesus, simply because there is actually no such thing as a-God?. More than likely correct, but theist wont bother to ponder these question)
It never occur to these folk, that if Jesus was in fact God, then why wouldn’t Jesus have also already known exactly when he would also be likely to actually return ?
Brainwashed faithful folk wont bother to even ponder these kind of question anymore
The same way that the brainwashed brethren folk also wont even bother to ponder questions in regard to aspect of Aberdeen anymore either
Like two peas in a pod ? (similarity is blatant )
There is a cost to these faith belief. Somebody need to already pay the cost of these faith belief (here and now) that the faithful choose to follow, and somebody must still pay even if these faiths are to end up ultimately fruitless in the long run
