Real Churches dont build Empires

Some Ex exclusive brethren are able to find a sense of solace and comfort within this thought.

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) .

Common sense-equation

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 ?

Right?

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.

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.

      Hello VeeJay.Lovely to hear from you. I only found out too, the other day more about church groups financial dealings when i went to look. I had previously seen something said years before now, about Catholic church wealth connections. But then the other day i wondered about other groups.

      Im thoroughly enjoying reading your blog too.Feel its great to see people be themselves,and feel free to speak their mind, be able to talk about experiences as they experienced it happen.
