Some ex eb’s are discussing the idea, that Brethren would be the place people should want to be, should the rapture arrive
I’ve read with interest comments about the way the rapture is used as a lever in the EB.
Last year I had a letter from a peeb very close to the top of the Hales hierarchy. He appealed to me to come back, speaking of how close we now are to the rapture. I’m not naming him as the letter was also very kind and genuine! Referring to how I’d raised my beloved family and the privilage I’d had of caring for brethren less fortunate. A very different letter from the usual!!
This particular peeb, as is now the norm, has certainly “pulled down his barns and built greater” – Luke 12 v18 – having moved his business to huge new premises on an arterial road. The actions of the HEB are in such contrast to their words – and to JSH’s ministry 😳.
So they’re soon going to leave all the ostentatious, lavish new mansions, the bigger and bigger businesses, the greater and greater barns BEHIND , really? 😂.
Bruce says he’s Joseph storing up vast quantities of not corn, but MONEY MONEY MONEY for ‘the needs of the testimoney before the rapture’. Interesting how it’s all controlled by him 🥴 ….. Will he be able to leave it 🤔 !!! It’s funny, but it’s also so sad, and involves such cruelty, heartbreak and loss.
Cheers, Craig Stewart.

The question is, why would anyone of us ex eb’s, have any reason to want to go back to be counted again-among people who have stood by in silence, within a cult, of what had been so immensely destructive to lives of so-many human
Who would be so stupid to even think of doing it ?
Did brethren ever bother to stop and consider that question?
Brethren, being Brethren, possibly wont even be conscious of the full extent of the harm of what they’ve all happily been associates of
Most, possibly wont even stop, for a second, to give any of it, “another thought” at all either
Similar to same way like, gang members, or Taliban associate,also don’t care to bother to even stop and reconsider the full extent of the harm they’d agree to associate themselves with.
They’ve become so completely accustomed to their ways
Their conscience will have long been buried as deep as possible . Set aside , somewhere out of sight and mind, so as to not ever allow it to cause them any dreaded “sense of cognitive dissonance”
Most of these people, will have need to follow “their leaders” instructions, to never ever dare to even allow themselves to read “alternative view” of anyone else
So they’ll have submit to confining their whole lives within this bubble of information
Information defined entirely by bias view
Because, or-otherwise they’ll begin to experience the sense of cognitive dissonance creeping in
So this is the reason for why their-leaders, will HAVE NEED to demand that they’ll remain confined within this bubble of bias-information
So as to
keep any sense of cognitive dissonance in check
Cognitive dissonance, Quote:
Cognitive dissonance is a psychological term describing the uncomfortable tension that may result from having two conflicting thoughts at the same time, or from engaging in behavior that conflicts with one’s beliefs, or from experiencing apparently conflicting phenomena.
In simple terms, it can be the filtering of information that conflicts with what you already believe, in an effort to ignore that information and reinforce your beliefs.
In detailed terms, it is the perception of incompatibility between two cognitions, where “cognition” is defined as any element of knowledge, including attitude, emotion, belief, or behavior.
The theory of cognitive dissonance states that contradicting cognitions serve as a driving force that compels the mind to acquire or invent new thoughts or beliefs, or to modify existing beliefs, so as to reduce the amount of dissonance (conflict) between cognitions.

Im so happy, that i can allow myself the freedom, to face cognitive dissonance, of differing view
That’s what true religious “liberty” should require
The right to allow oneself, to be faced by alternative views
To come away, knowing that decision may have been based on information (rather than bias based within a-information-bubble)
Brethren cannot afford to allow themselves to read alternative info
The poor things
This has been what has caused Brethren to remain-backward
Even gone so far as to cause Brethren to devolve (as compared to evolve)
Brethren minds can EASILY be unsettled, extremely quickly, being that their own info, has always been constantly flavored by bias-view, for more than a WHOLE GENERATION , already
Real easy to unsettle the Brethren (this explain reason for why they’ll never dare to allow themselves to venture outside their info-bubble, to enter into discussion, among outsiders
They cannot afford to do so?
They’ll be so-easily shown-up ,to be backward, in knowledge…. Even bible knowledge as well too
So see those poor Brethren, they really don’t like to need to feel that tension
Just cant handle the jandle
Because, of reason how it QUICKLY feels “so uncomfortable”
They can easily feel uncomfortable, because, even although they’ve found a way so as to all allow themselves, to bury their conscience away out of site and out of mind
I still require so very little, thought, before the conscience gets quickly resurrected real-fast-as AGAIN
Truth can SO-EASILY have that affect on human
And therefore the gang leaders, or the Taliban leader,or Cults leaders, or even leaders of any high-control dictatorship regime
They all understand this too
They also sense that the-truth is a danger unto their own grasp on power
They can sense that
Brethren cult leader,are absolutely no different either
They cant help but fear the truth
Well simply because of reason how its actually so blatantly obvious, to sense the way that Brethren cult has been constantly acting alongside immense amount of evil
For well over a whole generation now already
All those Brethren member. They all also secretly still understand how they have ALL remain as a associated part of it too
Secretly, deep down, where their conscience lays buried away, they’ll all know-it. Sense its so (even all the while they’ll be pretending like as if they don’t)
They’ve all decided to stick to the easy road
That’s been the problem
They didn’t bother to “separate themselves from” the cults ongoing evil manner. Did they?. They never bothered to take that tough road of what in turn might likely required them to have need to experience “hardship of being separated” from member of their families . Did they?
Those folk preferred to bury their conscience
To pretend like as if like “they hadn’t EVER been any the wiser” as to what kind of immense evil they’d ALL allowed themselves to remain ASSOCIATED with
So therefore when a person has buried their conscience , this deeply
Then little wonder ?
Then very little wonder then.That when old Brucie review wrecker Hales , become overcome by EXTREME GREED, uses the Brethren bullshit review, as a way to create a CUNNING Public relation scam, a scam to the level of which i can attest had very nearly even gone to the extent to cause ANOTHER SUICIDE. A bullshit facade of a Brethren review, of the kind of like what would BE BOUND TO leave even way more extensive great sense-of sadness and despair , in it’s wake
Then how the Brethren react ?
Mostly, in the main part they didn’t actually even care at all about that happening
Absolutely no sense of remorse
Yeah nah .. They STILL didn’t bother to care
Not even after this situation, of what should have served to help make it become blatantly CLEAR, to Brethren member, that the group of whom they choose to remain ASSOCIATED
Is nothing short of a COLD HEARTED CULT
The poor poor Brethren
Poor of heart. So poor of heart
Due to being overcome by THEIR insatiable GREED for MONEY
“Greed from money”, can overcome any possibility, for a “sense of remorse” ,to exist among Brethren
GREED for money is become “like-God” among Brethren
The Brethren, they’ve sold their souls , for money
In return, they’ve ALL became IMMENSELY POOR OF HEART
Makes me wonder
What place for the EXTREMELY POOR “OF HEART” people, will Brethren ASSOCIATE expect they’ll find within the resurrection?
WHAT real USE, would Jesus have, for the “immensely POOR OF HEART”, types of people
What reason would Jesus have need to be including them for ?
Where in the hell are the backward bogan Brethren heads at ?
They must be stupid
What in the hell role would Jesus ever have any use for a group of these nasty cult-people all of whom have freely accepted their role as being the-GREEDY MONEY HUNGRY people whom are also IMMENSELY POOR of heart
What kind of rapture , is it, of what these brain dead cult associate envisage ?
HOW can they remain so blind
The poor things
1.NO conscience (its long been well and truly buried,out of sight and out of mind)
2. No real honest compassion (basically become so poor of heart, they wont even shed a tear even in times when its their own family members, who’d suffer extremely)
3. No true empathy (Brethren empathy, only exist as a measure to try and help secure charity status= IE: its a complete sham set-up which is designed to secure MORE-MONEY)
And yet, there is many Brethren ,who still have faith, that they’ll be offered a place , “in a rapture”
Where are these peoples heads at ?
What use would Jesus ever have for the hard hearted GREEDY bunch of MONEY HUNGRY “brethren associate”
What “use would there be” for those kind of people
I have a strong feeling, that i can sense that the very last place, that anyone of us human , would ever want to be found to be, should there ever come a time , when a rapture would arrive
Would be, to dare to be associated with Brethren
Jesus was not really that interested in the hard hearted people
I cant see that he were
Most certainly didn’t have much time for the money changers anyway. The GREEDY money HUNGRY fools, who’d ALL been FAR more interest in “maintaining TRADITION”
Rather than maintaining a good sense of kindheartedness
Those muppet yo yo’s who’d all REMAINED so COLD HEARTED fundamentalist, that they’d therefore also still remained staunchly adamant , that TRADITION should alway’s have need to remain-strong “first and foremost” above all else .
So that even single mothers might still then be required to have need to spend their money, first-off, by buying animal to sacrifice ,”to serve-to-God”
Like as if God would be seen as some egotistical creep, who’d always require to have his butt-licked, even if it might then in affect also mean, that the single women’s children might then need to be left to be hungry for food, and have no decent clothes on their back
Rather than to first feed and clothe their own children
This is the outcome of Greed. The outcome of the nature of a cold heart outlook on life
God has been pictured as being some needy-being, who ego gets hurt, unless he’d have million upon million of human being, constantly pampering, and worshiping him, day and night, until the end of their living days on earth
As is , a-God …. A “good” and “a kind” God. An all powerful God
Would ever have any-need to ever be, this way
Little wonder today then, that almost the whole of Christendom is seen to be in such utter disgrace . Greed for money. And poor cold hearted nature
Is been able to have
become still remained rife within Christendom today
Hasn’t it ?
The hope for real change. The renewed hope. Was lost… After the time they’d nailed Jesus to cross
Why would Jesus be in any real hurry to return ?
Makes me wonder, why Christian would be inclined to still think Jesus might be in any real-hurry to return here
Imagine the extent of embarrassment , to face
Imagine the full extent of it of what has BEEN ALLOWED to develop
ALL OF WHAT so called “real Christian”, have stood by,in silence, and HAVE HELPED TO ALLOW to continue, unhindered
While still pretending that it might have anything so much to do with
“true honest religious liberty”
Christians often seem “far more worried and fearful about” pain and shame of what could perhaps need to be experience by Christendom
They’d seem to feel more anxious about the thought of that happening
This situation (IE: Christian sense of shame) seem to always matter, to sense of Christian pride, even way-above any THOUGHTS of the pain experienced by the people who’d actually experienced the sex abuse
Those people…. Yeah nah… Thought about them… gets relegated second place
In a real hurry?
“Pride of Church” ..matters far more than anything else ever does
I guess , partly because of how the sense of pride, would also still always retain an almost inseparable connection to their ability to still retain ongoing cash-flow (IE: greed)
MONEY’S BECOME like ….. THE-GOD-of-CHRISTENDOM
Hasn’t it ?
Brethren are no different?. Brethren seem worse. Because,they’ve believed themselves to be in a place-above , any of the other non exclusive Brethren, believers
Brethrenism is seen to be like “the Christianity-plus-movement”
(IE: Christian pride-plus movement)
Brethren pride has been about pride of the highest level
Brethren = wealthiest extreme state of pride to the maximum extent + extremely POOR OF HEART state
= Brethren 101
If i were still an associated among Brethren.
I’d certainly be inclined to be totally dreading the thought that a-rapture might ever arrive
And i feel blessed to have been intelligent enough, to choose to leave
If Brethren beliefs would indeed be correct. Then chances are that perhaps the following sound might even end up being sound of the Brethren congregation, of associate’s, all singing-together
But then at the end of the day, chances are that perhaps Bruce Hales wont even actually be “a believer, anyway .Will he?. More likely he’ll just be quietly playing-along-with the game. Like what so many “believers” will also do
He’s just busily milking the cash-cow for as much as it can offer
Can you imagine the RAPTURE ARRIVING … And then ole Brucie review wrecker Hales , blunders up the forefront of the congregation, as the sublime head honcho …. so called”divine” minister of the recovery serving to lead Brethren toward ….. THEIR SALVATION
Hands forth his credential,as head poo-bar morally just minister of the Brethren recovery (https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/australia/98220593/potential-witness-in-exclusive-brethren-sex-abuse-case-paid-to-remain-silent) . for the the lord Jesus Christ to study and contemplate
Make you wonder, why don’t more of the youth, today, decide to step up and tell the man “where to go”
Makes you wonder ?
Seems to me , that the Brethren might perhaps even still have some way in which to question the legality of the way that they’ve been fleeced
But they’d certainly have need to begin to do so … a.s.a.p
