Some Ex exclusive brethren are able to find a sense of solace and comfort within this thought.
One comment is
Ah, it’s a shame that others have only seen bad things in other churches, so they can only take the piss….. It’s not been my experience with other churches, just cults as above, and there is a big difference. I hope your friend enjoys his new job in such a beautiful country! A big change after France!
end quote (my bold)
Only cults are the Christian groups active in playing the rip off game ?
Big difference ?
Christianity, in general, has been active in abusing the charity status . And then having abused the charity status, has even then gone on to have used the amassed wealth, to discriminate against other groups of people, who were not connected with Christianity. Like for instance, how they discriminated against atheists, by pointing out how atheist had been involved in building less hospital or schools than what Christians did (Note: being as atheist were denied right to claim charity status, common sense follows, from that, that the atheist would then therefore also be less likely to be able to build hospital or school,either) .
Exclusive brethren group might use this same tactic “against” ex brethren ,today too .To gain the upper hand over ex brethren. Being that Exclusive Brethren, as a Christian group are eligible to claim charity status , to then use to purchase hay, which then can be used to gain community-kudos , for gain of their own Brethren groups superiority over ex exclusive brethren (Note: ex exclusive brethren, as a non religious group, therefore also will have no right to claim charity status, meaning ex exclusive brethren ,also will be less likely to be able to participate either in any Charity-like act of providing hay relief for farmer, or RRT for sausage sizzle for firemen)
Common sense-equation (again)
This is a widespread Christian tactic
Its been a widespread scam?
Its a scam that allows religious groups the right, to gain the upper hand, and then use this upper hand, to then discriminate against other people
Although perhaps many sheeple people are still really slow to begin to see through it?.Faith can render a human-being blind. Those folk remain stubbornly intent on still trying to create a “silk purse” out of a “sows ear” ?.
I have doubt, that these blind sheep would help make Jesus pleased or comfortable?. Considering the immense amount of pain and suffering that has constantly been caused by this faithful Christian-idolism ever since the death of Jesus (IE:Jesus name, has been commandeered and misused like some product-logo ,of what really helps brings in the customers ,and sells big time)
Little doubt that these well meaning sheep are faithfully believing that their action of Christian-idolism are good for humanity. Trouble is, it seems like they may fail to do
much any research ?
It doesn’t require one to become any rocket scientist, to find evidence to suggest that Christian idolism is rife with financial abuse
Even a dumb idiot like myself, who never even passed school certificate, is able to track down enough evidence, within a matter of minutes
Perhaps the difference is, i care to bother to go looking? (IE im not faithful in idolizing Christianity)
Exclusive brethren, likewise , might also soon find enough evidence themselves as well too, to lead them to find-out that Brethrenism is in fact been evilly involved in ruining many lives. If only they cared ,to put their faith aside, and actually go looking
But they don’t bother ?
Perhaps because, it might shatter the comfortable feeling of their inner sense of peaceful bliss
Christian idolism is foundered on this uncharitable, uncompassionate nature ,of not caring to bother
Meanwhile the evil continue to ruin mega amounts of lives
As an atheist, i don’t believe in judgment day. But when i consider the measure of immense amount of harm caused by faithfully blind sheep , sometimes i begin to wish like i might believe in judgment day
Well meaning people can help cause more harm than they even realize (IE: well-meaning people ,were complacent ,and indifferent ,as to ongoing suffering of slaves, sexism that harmed women, and even in regard of immense amount of suffering caused by sex abuses, even with regard of involvement a large religious group like the Catholic Church)
It’s the complacent indifference, of all of these well-meaning citizen ,universally worldwide, of what in fact helps to seal the fate, of all whom are left to continue to suffer
Things might have changed more quickly… But for the evil of this complacent indifference ?
And yet, as i don’t have luxury of believing in judgement day. I realise the only hope for justice, is to continue to actively rally for change
Catholic Church in Australia is far wealthier than it claimed
An investigation, published this week, reveals that the Catholic Church in Australia concealed its massive wealth when it gave evidence at major inquiries into child sexual abuse.
In reality, according to this report, the church is worth tens of billions of dollars, making it one of the country’s biggest non-government property owners. At the same time is receives billions in government subsidies, and is exempt from almost all forms of taxation.
