Ex eb are the type of people who STILL remain so worried, about thought of being someone who’ll perhaps maybe end up upsetting someone else
Here is one ex ebs recent comment
it seems the word I used hit a raw nerve with some. Maybe I should’ve worded a different way.
Relax yourself about it
There’s no reason for you to apologize. You did nothing wrong. Just feel you can “be yourself” (so it doesn’t always feel like “tip toeing” around, over broken glass)
Human will get upset due to certain things what trigger them anyway
Its normal emotional reaction
But yet, that cannot always be totally avoided either?
Its still important, to not let these things be able to totally wipe away option for freedom of speech and ongoing discussion
Or otherwise we cannot make progress
For instance. Had the Brethren group not also been , TOO BUSY , with being also focused with trying to not ever dare to upset anyone-else
Things might have even been able to come-out way differently than they did?. Even @ Aberdeen ?
Human need to get over the ridged “black and white” way of thinking.To let go of their fears of what can work to also stifle human ability to make change
God (a decent kind loving one anyway) certainly would want it to be that way?
Even Jesus was seen as being a bit of a miss fit, who’d happily even dare to have spoke out of turn? (in the eyes of “some others” ,they’d obviously felt like he were GUILTY of doing so, anyway)
Nobody should really need to be exactly right?
To still be feeling loved ?
Like, if Jesus were to say something similar to this here
my god, my god, why have you forsaken me
Acting as if he might even have been busily wondering, where a-God actually is. After he’s been left suffering , and suffering, so bad.
Then surely, any decent kind person, should still at least forgive the man for feeling that way
Accept the thought, of how much faith is actually required, so as to believe
We were not upset at what Peter had said
We have more concern about caution . Cautioning people about what we could be dealing with, perhaps
We ex member should even need to remain cautious toward so-called softening of cult regulation ?
Or have we simply forgotten all about the MANIPULATIVE goings on WHAT HAPPEN within the so called-review?
Be wary of softening of regulation of what don’t happen right across the ex eb
Perhaps you are being used, by Brethren, like how a pawn is often used like as well too?
Perhaps consider, they’d like to try and cosy-up to a certain select few
Just so as to help lesson the heat overall
The ones now allowed to be back in touch with brethren family
Might choose to still ask themselves this question
Are the Brethren family you meet, displaying honest open concern for all the other MANY people who have yet to rekindle family relationships ?
If there is such a thing as a devil
Don’t bother to think the crafty bastard wont still be cunning-as a sly fox
Lets also remember
Its also the evil of feeling of indifference toward others
Of what has even ORIGINALLY allowed FOR this whole sad situation, to evolve ,EVEN in the first place
Brethren MAY BE KEEN, that any family they purposely choose to rekindle relationships with, might then also EVEN SOON begin to BECOME PREPARED to again–forget about others, who have not yet done so
Using them similar way to how pawns also-are cunningly used too, a chess game
And possibly they STILL wont like the general idea of this idea below
“One for all and all for one”
Perhaps as, this STILL isn’t their own ideal idea, of a real brotherhood
