Whenever we would remind the believer about the amounting harms whats
been being caused to people through religion . Much of what has also been “whitewashed over”, and also been able to have been fast forgotten about. Almost as if it “might never ever” have even happened in the first place
The reply will often be
“Oh yes well but then you’d need to look at the harm of what was caused by communism”
Its like the knee jerk reaction, whats taken by believers, so as to help them to avoid facing the issue of “religious abuse”
What difference does it make ,to matters, even if communism has help to cause people a whole lot of harm as well too
Isn’t that, still beside the point?
Does “two wrongs” then ever help to make these things right?
Lets say if a rapist can point out, the level of harm of like what the murder’s would cause to people. Then does that then mean that rapist’s can then avoid facing the harm they’d caused and just forget about facing justice, with regard to their own act of rape?
Why should it matter, that greatly, that communism has caused harm too
That’s beside the point
And like, at what point would Matthew 7:5 apply
Who would it apply to first?. The communists. Or the Christians
Would it apply to Christians first. Or would the-Christian be waiting around on the communist to make the first moves for the better, first of all, before the-Christian might then see “enough reason” for themselves to finally start fixing-up their own nest
Shouldn’t the Christian,(specially being as they’d been pretending to act as being like “moon beams” for Jesus), be still most concerned and “more interested” in facing up to their own past wrongs properly first and foremost, so as to then also in that way perhaps even be able to help to “change the future times” ahead of themselves as well too
Wouldn’t that be a far better approach
Rather than to create themselves “a side-track” so as to then avoid from facing the situation head on
I never did be able to see any “real sense” in the believers traditional ways of approach in regard to harms that their religions are involved in
The Brethren are “more or less also only just following along with the very same” traditional way of approach, too,in their own way of also avoiding facing the harm they’d caused, as well now
When will believer be ready to accept that its a widespread phenomena of like what they’d all allowed to become like normal practice
I’m not saying that its “the right way” of approach
I’m pointing out how its become “fairly traditional” practice within Christendom
To begin to “understand“ the reason for why the Brethren are so slow in their way of making proper amends. We would first of all have need to study the traditional ways of Christendom
These issues are directly connected
