JUSTICE EXPECTATIONS

Quote:

The early Christians reasonably hoped for big changes resulting from Jesus’ teachings and then Paul’s teachings but it didn’t work out that way. Christianity and Christendom became a political force exhibiting both benefit and adversity. Perhaps we may conclude that the real import of Jesus advent remains in obscurity awaiting appreciation and finding expression in individuals rather than in any identifiable system. Is God perhaps more concerned about outcomes than about morality? Do we expect too much? So is there another way, which due to our background we have missed? Perhaps justice is something we as individuals should practice rather than expect? Is this not an essential part of Jesus teachings and practice? Is there something in all this that we have not learnt? Personally I have been reviewing my EB upbringing. Justice and fairness were always high priority. Now that can be a good trait as a personal virtue but what about when one rigorously expects justice and fairness in others?

All moral evolution occurs, after being motivated through vocalization of human feelings of anguish ,of what are on public display

Consider the progress of moral change, in regard of acts of slavery? (happen through silence?).

No way

Or even past act of burning of people at the stake, when accused of heresy (do we really figure perhaps people didn’t very vocally publicly display their own feeling of anguish,to try and help bring forward change?).

No way (of course they would have been very outspoken against, the act)

Or even say, sex abuse ,within Catholic Church setting . And so on (once again anguish, on public display again too right?)

All these changes were motivated ,to occur, only after public display of feeling of anguish of what were caused through suffering

Only after !!

Had humans have, in stead, buried their feeling of anguish .Perhaps slavery and stake-burning ,or stoning children to death by stone

Might still continue to occur even still to this very day today?

Faith that God fixes problems , is faith

This is the real relevant lesson being learned here, by us all here today, through the ongoing suffering of what our own generation is right now publicly expressing today

Be silly to bother to pretend like the suffering isn’t a reality ?

Doing that, would only serve to help prolong the suffering ,and anguish ?

Specially so, when in fact , no God exist ?

Anguish shared publicly,is what in fact fires-up more motivation toward moral evolution

Religion, for now, often acts far more like the handbrake, of what thwarts progression

Sadly

Been happening in this very same way too, for many generations now already . Consider that past generation were forced to suffer and feel anguish when observing the act of their own children being stoned to death  (  Deuteronomy 21:18-21 ). Imagine the PTSD of what would have been caused unto parents , upon observing the barbaric act of their own children, being murdered with stones

Right?

Those parents (of those times long ago) might have voiced feelings of their own anguish, very publicly too .

Right?

Today our own generation is now finally benefiting from motivation for moral evolution ,of what was previously generated through public expression re anguish (IE Deuteronomy 21:18-21) . Anguish of what was caused through extreme suffering caused through immoral act caused via moral mistakes of what were made in times past

Morals evolve. Past generations may suffer ,within the process of a learning curve

That’s to be expected to happen (humans learn,sometimes, by mistakes made as well too)

Its moral evolution process happening .However then future generation, are generations of what benefit most of all ,from gains of moral evolution

Past suffering and anguish shared publicly ,then helps brings forth, future gain

Pretending like the feelings don’t exist. Burying the anguish. Would be to deny reality?. Which in turn then will serve to help prolong the suffering and anguish

And act of what might be foolish ?

Generally humanity is still going through the learning curve within the lesson, that a-God is not involved

That’s the biggest lesson being learned here

Presently, religion is still acting like a overbearing hand brake of what too often thwarts progression toward moral change 

That happens when people refuse to accept that its in fact human whom are at the helm

This is the ultimate collateral cost of this denial

 

 

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.
