Yeah i agree . Humans have need to get real
Here below is a quote of the original post of face book among ex eb. Quote:
This is really hard to say as we come from the same cult.
However, I will bite the bullet.
Some of the content on here is despondent, navel gazing and retrograde and makes me wonder why some left, seriously!
It is NOT cathartic it’s recreating your own cell.
Not moving forward.
Life is on hold because you can’t let go.
There IS no explanation that will resonate.
I don’t think “venting” is a good reason to be on here unless you want to be a negative force.
Do you REALLY want to analyse the teachings to prove why they’re wrong?
Spend a long time delving when you should BE LIVING.
Take that massive positive from the biggest thing you ever did in your life and move away.
Make 2020 better and further away from ANY influence.
Know your own mind and then you WILL find peace.
Bless you all.
Notice that the above comment never care to take note of the ongoing situation of cults
As far Simon would seem to be concerned. Its about him. Or all about the lives of the ex cult members
Never mind how many “numbers of others” there are all around the world, who still remain captive of cults
Never mind them
Simon wants for life to seem “on face value” ,as if ,so long as the ex member can find a way so to move on themselves, and to find happiness for themselves, then this is about all that should ever have need to really matter
Nothing other than that … “matters”
As if. As if thats all that should matter … to people
Take care of yourself. dont worry about anyone else
I left the cult back in 1976. I pretty much already moved on “myself” too. Generally had forgotten about brethren. It wasn’t until the failed Brethren “review” arrived. That i was then re-introduced to the ongoing harm that had still remained a concern of day to day lives, of those whom had “still remained” captive within cult life
If Simon believes in God. Then Simon has need to consider that this God perhaps doesn’t seem to want for the ex eb members , to ever get to the stage in life,where by they’d be tempted to simply find a way in which to just move on
Chances are, that the only reason that these cult problem haven’t been attended to properly already
Is mainly due
To the “numbers” of believers, who VERY similarly to Simon are also ALL able to simply find a way in which to walk away and move on
Why do Christian commonly seem so intent on silencing “feeling of outrage”
Why try to silence feeling of outrage
Perhaps because the outrage, causes Christian to then also HAVE NEED to begin to feel UNCOMFORTABLE too
Christian don’t enjoy to feel uncomfortable
They far prefer to find themselves a place to feel “quite comfortable” with status quo the way it stands
Even the cult-member type Christian will also act exactly likewise as well too
All these believer
All of them
They all, feel most comfortable, when they can find a way in which to just move on ,themselves, and to therefore more or less forget about a situation of what still has yet to be remedied and attended to
This fact, is also the “best explanation”
For reason for why cult harm is been able to continue
Cult harm continues
Due to indifference
Due to complacency of “well meaning” people very much just like Simon Bennett
Think about it
All around the world today, there are million and million of numbers of Christians, who can all find themselves a way in which to simply move on
And to feel comfortable within themselves to forget about the situation of the ongoing cult problem
This is been their common “answer” to the problem
Isn’t it ?
Therefore ,this will also help to explain,reason for why they’ll feel uncomfortable
Whenever they note, how there are some other people, about, who haven’t
Its like this
Once they become aware of how some people have remained “uncomfortable”
With the ongoing cult situation
This then has the affect of forcing the Christian,to have need to step out of their cozy we comfort zone , themselves
Where they’ll therefore be forced to question their own complacency
That feeling is rather uncomfortable to the believer
Generally speaking, it wouldn’t be wrong to declare
It feels foreign to believer, to have need to question validity of cults
Highly “unsettling” feeling ?
Not something what many of them ever generally bother to do
The decent way to “bless” people
Is to take action
And perhaps even to “get angry” if need be
2020 , the word “bless you” or “bless you” that , blah blah blah
Simply doesn’t even actually cut it anymore
Time is over for these platitudes
“Lets be real”
Imagine that the photo above, were to “represent” the ongoing cult-situation
We would have million upon million of numbers of Christian, worldwide, who’d all feel uncomfortable themselves, to ever need to see or hear of, anyone-else acting as if they “still felt actively outraged” about the ongoing situation with cults
They’d be trying to convince more people to try and find their own way,as well, to just be able to walk on by, and to act as if they’d found a way in which to feel peaceful about it
That’s the sad thing about religion. Jesus DIED at the cross. The spirit of Jesus has pretty ceased to exist anymore in world today
Even a atheist,like me, can sense that its happened
Who knows, maybe its “the atheist” ,who’ll have a better chance to sense that its whats happened
Its the “true spirit of” Jesus what Died and passed away ,at the cross
An atheist has no need, to need to believe that Jesus body would have need to be resurrected at the cross
The spirit of Jesus was always what “had counted” most
Sadly this spirit of Jesus has been overrun by religion. By people whom have chosen to focus on upholding religion
Even if this focus, might need to also mean, that folks would need to find ways in which to simply walk on by, and cease to feel outraged, about ongoing injustice
That= religion 101
