A good End cannot sanctify evil means

I see some theist busily still trying to make a good end sanctify evil means.This is too often been a Christian tradition.

Perhaps we could say, that the Catholic church, had merely tried to help cover up sex abuse, so to try and protect the Catholic church which would then in turn be for the glory of God (IE: doing so would help to maintain Church membership and Christian worship)

We could take this silly idea even further afield.Like we might say, it’s not so bad that the poor persons children had hijacked somebody’s car,as it had then meant that the poor people’s extended family, had then been able to have a car themselves to use over the week end for purpose of joy-riding .Which in turn, had then helped to bring so much more joy and happiness to the poor family involved, for one week end

 

Perhaps we might say.Its not so bad that some people are able to escape justice, as those people might also have children that need looking after at home, which the parent wont be able to do should they get caught and go to jail. And anyway, God is always still able to punish people for bad things they do,later on, on judgement day

Anyone see where this idea is headed?

Below is the theists comment which is in connection to this https://www.facebook.com/rapidreliefteam/photos/a.1396685893912100.1073741827.1377332042514152/2111073299140019/?type=3&theater&ifg=1

Farmers are not getting enough help….who believes mainstream media 😏…!

There have been way too many farmer suicides….they are so isolated in many cases….

I am aware of farmers and station families who do it tough continually.
Supermarket chains undercutting them, elitist governmental oppression.etc….etc……
Hooray to consideration and support now……grateful regardless of motive in light of the desperate need ….. & hope South African farmers can also receive ♡♡

The brethren slaughtered many of our hearts and souls…….I’ve chosen to forgive & love – I’m free to move on…..not any of us will escape God’s judgement on that great or terrible Day.

It is the brethren system that is evil….there are good people still in fellowship including members of our own families…..maybe good people in the rrt, which of course is such a typical front for darkness within…..tho, who ever remembers such overt community outreach from the eb-peebs in recent decades….?

If you were destitute and a pervert paedophile or similar sinner offered desperately needed assistance……hmmmm, your response is your own personal choice …… wouldn’t it..?

It is not the brethren system that’s most evil. It’s the evil of what allows this system.And stands by indifferently. That’s the root of this evil

I feel perhaps i’d have reason to feel ashamed of myself, if i were someone more than willing to gamble on justice in eternity?.

Because, if an eternity doesn’t exist, these well meaning Christian/people whom feel more than happy to gamble in this way, will then not ever even be held to account ,for this terrible unjust misdeed of their own, themselves either. Therefore all of the harm they’ve all helped to sanctify ,here on this earth, will then go unpunished .And  justice will be lost

That surely then would need to be the most highest evil of all time?

You cannot ever make a silk purse out of a sows ear.Why even bother to try?.

People have been warned about global warming.Yet few cared to take action to help prevent it. Someone somewhere need to step up and help lead the way.Its not good enough,either, for us to be saying something like,ohhhh well see how i’m only one person here,so therefore i just cannot help change the whole world

If we were all to end up thinking like that?.Then perhaps we might also,be free to sanctify ourselves, and feel the same kind of way about our children’s upbringing, crime,racism,sexism,marital rape and so much more?

What if the drought suffering is in fact a-part of hell of we have mindlessly helped create for all of ourselves, here on earth? (through our own stupidity and greed and so on)

What if heaven and eternity might in fact refer, to what our lives might have otherwise been able to still be more like now,here on this earth full of such beauty,of what humans have chosen to help destroy, if only we’d all cared to all learn to accept more responsibility ourselves ,way way long before now?

The person making the comment above seem to sanctify the saving of farmers lives what happen through suicide.But forgets that the Brethren group were causing suicide http://wikipeebia.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=14&sid=8b958824fe03eb9dce7c679984081816

 

 

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.
