Keep Families Together

Keep Families Together

Thousands of Americans in all the major American cities marched in protest yesterday waving banners saying “Keep families together”.

No, they were not demonstrating against Exclusive Brethrenism, but they might well have been, because there have probably been more families torn apart by Jim Taylor’s rules than by Donald Trump’s rules.

The strength of the public’s emotional revulsion against the cruelty of separating family members is something that Excusive Brethren leaders might reflect on.

There is a lot in common with Donald Trump and the EB...they both seem to be convinced they are right and are not answerable to anyone.Make America( the commercial system) great again.Everything is the attack.Build walls. Lying ( Heavenly desception) is perfectly ok to protect the position.
The only thing that will bring either of them down is public outrage

Instead of bringing the Brethren down, a less traumatic alternative might be to convince them of the need to reform.

Ian, most of us has tried our best for many years to appeal reasonably to them without any discernible result. We are battle weary; (see my post today, The Cult). I for one would welcome any inspiration for an effective approach. Can you help?

When it came to religios people who harassed the poor and vulnerable,Jesus did not try to convince them of the need to reform,he openly taunted them, called them ‘offspring of vipers’ and kicked over their tables in the temple where they had set up shop.He wasn’t politically correct or misunderstood
