The New Religion: God is Dead

Alan Watts~The New Religion: God is Dead

at around about the 5:45min mark ,quote :

“for some reason or other, people who commit themselves to this kind of exclusive following of Jesus, become exceedingly obstreperous, because they will either damn other religions outright, or far more insidiously damn them with fake praise”

end quote

Generally speaking,overall Christianity is been rather like an “exclusive club”

That exclusive attitude, still wont cease, the moment that people would leave from within confine of certain Christian cult, like Brethren cult, either .

The attitude continues on

That “exclusive” attitude, wont cease, by simply leaving the membership-confine, of a-cult.Will it?. No it wont

Why not ?

Because its like leaving the sub-cult, of a larger base-cult

And because the roots of this exclusive type attitude, do in fact run way far deeper within the whole of Christendom generally

Its been thriving, there, within Christendom festering  for thousands of year

That exclusive (IE bigoted attitude), had ALREADY long existed among Christians, within Christendom, way long before any exclusive brethren group had even been heard of

You bet ya

The leaven, (of that “exclusive” attitude) had already long leavened the whole lump of Christendom, generally speaking, well before any exclusive brethren group would even finally form into a certain particular sub-group themselves

Way long before Exclusive Brethren had chosen to do even more damage , themselves, by simply amplifying the harmful effect of this pre-existing exclusive (IE:bigoted) attitude

Because amplifying a pre-existing problem . Is all they mainly help to do (and its only through the act of when this problem is been amplified that we will then also be able to become “more aware” of the problem as well too, ourselves.Its usually our own suffering, that then helps cause us to become more aware of a problem of what many other people will remain ignorant of)

Yet funnily enough, there are still some Christian ex eb, who’ll act as if they can see how a “few thousand feeble minded bogan cult members”, can some how be, the only ones who’s ever completely held to blame for the whole situation of all of what has developed

 

While they choose to continue to do this. They’ll also still continue to miss the mark of the root problem . Plus will also therefore act so as to help cause the problem to have need to go on perpetually, for x-amount of generation year to come ,due to root-problem not ever being able to be attended to properly, fast enough

Change will still happen (so,it’s not a matter as if it wont ever happen). In fact its already been slowly happening

But the problem that remain is, that it could have been attended to already long before now way faster . If only there had of been less Christian within Christendom , with active intent on passing the blame on

Like what happens, as soon as Christian are continually intent on bullshitting themselves with the idea of real and non-real Christian . (so as to try and protect their own dearly held image, of their sacred cow)

The exclusive Brethren group, are a extreme by-product of a more deeply ingrained pre-existing exclusive attitude 

 

 

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.
