Re: 'Man of God'-'Our Beloved'-'Taipan' perhaps?? Maybe not.

My only hope is brethren still entrapped in the cult will read these accounts of other cults and recognise themselves... Not surprisingly,many of these same features were found in the brethren under JTjr( 'Our Beloved') ...a true servent of the Lord will never allow this,much less initiate it ....No...

Re: Why hast thou forsaken me.

I have talked to many ex EB over the years, some have kept their faith and gone on to find Christian fellowship in real churchs while others have totally walked away from 'religeon' saying 'if that's Christianity,I wasn't nothing to do with it' (can't blame them,it wasn't Christianity and I want not...

Re: Trump Administration embraces separation

One Republican publicly stated ' we voted for Trump but we sure didn't vote for this '....In the past EB allegedly claimed to be 'in touch with the president' ,but I haven't heard whether they are in communication with Trump or not

Re: Bloody Hypocrites

One might be forgiven for concluding the EB's guiding guiding principle was to 'put one over' on any local government in order to make as much money as possible...afterall, they're only 'Eyptians ' anyway and therefor fair game...( see,we're smart and they're stupid so we have a right to do whatever...

Re: Cult? Or not cult?

I was watching another episode on cults that A&E has been putting on( sure wish they would do one on the EB) Tonights episode the 'Children of God ' ..one thing that comes through loud and clear on all of these episodes on cults is while some closely parallel our own experience,others are not . A co...

Re: A Plymouth Brethren follower has been convicted rather than take a good behaviour bond for religious reasons at Armi

Looks like the brethren have just defined what a 'valued' loved and active' member is( of course,that could mean his ability to make money...) and just what sort of 'good behavour' you can expect from them,where even the 'world' has to put them on a good behaviours bond?......I remember the pre 60 d...

Re: Cult? Or not cult?

If you follow the scriptural model as set out in Paul's ministry,( not just claim you do) leadership is ALWAYS plural,qualified and works with equally qualified elders...local autonomy is the essential 'firewall'to contain damage to that one locality if the leadership does run amok...EB have no prot...

Re: Here's the brilliant way the Rapid Relief Team thanked NHS staff at Yeovil District Hospital

Hate to be cynical, but a couple of things come to mind (1) none of these 'good works' even happened before their charitable status was questioned( I well remember we said 'let the world look after their own') (2) never mind this 'Do your alms( charity) in secret'-they trumpet them from the roof top...

Re: Cult? Or not cult?

Not exactly preoccupied with ' bringing in new members' ..but they have a variation of it by banning birth control and breeding their own large familes ( women of breeding age could expect a visit from a 'priest' if they failed to become pregnant regularly ,and that interference in personal lives is...
