Still absolutely No Authenticity Then?

Peter M Clarke

Seems there is a concerted effort to entice ex EB to ‘come back’. Now I think mending fences is welcome under any pretext, but the EB seem to actualy think they have something to offer …friend of mind ran into an old acquaintance he hadn’t talked to for nearly 50 years, but this time,rather than scuttling out of the way and pretending he hadn’t seen him,this time the EB came up, glad handed him and professed great delight in seeing him and told him ‘they missed him’..made the pitch to ‘come back’ to the assembly…freind asks, well that’s nice,what have you got to offer? ‘Big meeting-Lots of people’ ( maybe 150,when the interchange swells numbers) ‘Good business opportunities’ (freind says ‘got more business than I can handle now ,but it would have been nice a few years ago when I was struggling to raise a family ) ‘you can make a lot of money’ (thanks , got enough already ) friend says, ‘hey,thanks for the offer anyway, great to meet you again,why don’t we get together and have a beer at my place? Bring the wife and kids for a barbeque and we‘ll catch up’

‘oh,sorry-can’t do that…( little embarrassed laugh) ‘you know the rules’…

Friend says ‘yah,I do,why would I want to come back to that?you‘ve got nothing I need or want – got a good church we go to and we’re happy there,they preach the gospel and have good bible studies,my kids go on mission trips … nice seeing you though’ and the offer to drop over for a beer is good anytime

and that pretty well sums it up,the ‘lord may have turned another corner‘ but EB have nothing we need or want…business connections? ,join the local Chamber of Commerce,’ they don’t pretend to be a church ,no strings attached and you don’t have to ‘give a gift’….have a nice day!

Same old same old, “putting on an act” , and pretending to be genuine

Act of love bombing, with hope to fool people

The old compassion not REALLY in action “TRICKhttps://www.rapidreliefteam.org/who-we-are/

But is used, instead, as a tool for purpose to suck folk in so as to fool people  (which also explains why so called said “rapid Relief”, had only began after the charity commission “began questioning” how worthy Brethren actually were of charity status?).

See some info here https://www.theguardian.com/voluntary-sector-network/community-action-blog/2013/jan/03/christian-brethren-legal-appeal-charity-commission-status

Considering the long list of detrimental harm, what they’d continually caused, unto so many. Including all those, who’d not been able to cope with it anymore

Because charity will usually supposed to beginat home” among family and loved ones, correct?

It obviously isn’t TRUE love, OR COMPASSION ,when you despise people ENOUGH , (not in your religious-club), that you wont even AGREE to simply share a meal together with them. But instead … go so far as to “proudly” (in un-humble puffed-up horridly self-righteous attitude) turn down their freely forthcoming charitable offer , to share a meal together

Proverbs 3:7, KJV ,Isaiah 5:21, KJV , 1 Corinthians 3:18-19, 21, 1 Corinthians 4:6-7, KJV , 1 Corinthians 8:1b-2, KJV , 1 Timothy 1:6-7, KJV , 1 Timothy 6:3-5, KJV , Hebrews 5:12-14, KJV , Proverbs 16:18, KJV , Luke 14:11, KJV

So there you go

See so that’s also how we will be able to gauge the authenticity of claim of being-charitable people ?

Evidently God like the humble lowly, The friendly kind people who’ll happily offer to share a meal, even

That’s mighty attractive too ?

I find it easy, even as an atheist, to see how i still share some common ground with those people . I love them, this world need far more of them. Help to make OUR  world become a far better place. For indeed they still remain as a force for good in OUR world

We are being provide evidence (from a-God perhaps, who knows?) to help us gauge truth of matters

Because

If in fact Brethren were HONESTLY CHARITABLE  people. At heart. Then they also wouldn’t mind one bit, to publicly admit to their acts in causing a whole lot of people a whole load of extreme harm

Plus

They would NATURALLY also gladly accept outsider freely forthcoming , compassionate humble charitable offer … to share 

Correct?

As that’s what humble kind thoughtful people will happily do.

Bruce Hales Almighty Boo Boo , inwardly, will already know how he had in fact allowed his own GREED  for financial gain . To ruin ALL the Brethren’s review experience. For all the many eb and ex ebs who we ALL sucked-in and fooled into believing Brethren’s intention were pure and motivated by true remorse for all the immense amount of harm of what they already HAVE  caused to so many. For all the lives of what they helped to ruin

They went and “broke so many of us ex eb’s hearts (including my own heart), ONCE OVER AGAIN, within the time of that bullshit trumped up charade of a review, of what they put-on,to fool us ?

They broke our hearts

But only

Because, we still actually DO have a pure heart

That’s why (and we wont need to be apologizing, to anyone, for having a pure heart ?)

Surely not

No need to?

However, sadly

Chances are, we will never be able to break the heart of those lost-people, who would seem to have ceased to have A HEART?

Wont happen

Wont

Sadly seems they non longer have a heart (definitely not a pure heart anyway)

They lost any ability to have HONEST compassion and empathy,for others, outside of their Christian cult-club

Poor things?

Sad….. Terribly sad

A man can even have all the money in the whole wide world. And yet remain very POOR OF HEART

Correct?

This is a sad state to be

Where is any written and public acknowledgment to harm caused?

There is none . None what’s worthy of mentioning , so far as yet, anyway

As that would really require Brethren to act be humble?

 

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.
