@ Steve 2,
I see your point. Sometimes I want justice so much I don't see the bigger pix. But you make good sense. I also like your "Another Point" I agree, I think they know but can't let on they know. Sometimes, & maybe it's my wishful thinking I think I recognize one or two on this site that I feel I go to the hall with, but can't tell, it's just that the stories line-up. They do try to act like they are not interested in the news, but I think they know more than they are letting on. I'm asking your view (only answer if you wish). I've commented on this site several time in the past & in the present. My take on the friends is that more than anything they feel chosen (God's organization), so maybe that's why they don't want to rock the boat. Sure they feel uneasy about things but to me what stands out in all of their comments is..."Well, this is the truth & this is God's org". Could that be the driving force in them sticking their heads in the sand ? I think that's why so many of them are sick....they know something isn't right but they much rather forsake their health than admit...maybe this isn't God's only org. This might just appeal to their elite'us (spelling ?) personality. They have a need to be part of something that makes them stand out & noticed. Their pride won't let them admit something isn't right. Steve, thanks so much for replying to me. Most here don't, but it doesn't matter, but at least I get to vent here. I thank all of you on this site, you have made me feel, I'm not alone in what I observe. I think we all have questioned our faith at one time or another & think to ourselves, maybe I'm crazy, maybe I don't read as well as I think I do. If it walks & talks like a duck..then that's what it is. Also, because many do believe it's God's org. they are too embarrassed to even admit because of all the folks they have shunned or disassociated with..that would be a lot of egg on their faces. They accuse other religions of being deceitful & they felt safe in the org....UNTIL NOW...I think too much is happening to ignore.
