Believer. I do believe you have touched a nerve getting us to think about the issues you have raised. So this may be part of the resistance you have experienced. Eric Hopper in the True Believer said “The opposite
of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who
cares not whether there is a god or not.”
A lot of us no longer care if there is a god or not.
My advice, which is worth what you are paying for it, is to place your trust in a few humanistic scriptures and concepts, the kind of things that are loving and embracing and move away from the mumbo jumbo. Use the Society as an example...... everything written and published since 1925 is gone, everything believed until 1975 is gone. All the teachings of Fred Franz are gone. Everything they thought they believed in 1990 is slipping away. Why follow that path? No religion has the truth no individual has the absolute truth maybe if one is lucky a slice of truth.
There is a saying that perfect is the enemy of good. The Society doesn't understand that, never has, which is why good is not respected as in you can never be good enough.
The way you respond to posters in a humanistic way is a rare thing. Maybe you'll be one of those special bridges that can help people get past their hurt and fear. Some will need to hold on to their basic most cherished beliefs but also need to be able to come out of the shadow of the WTBTS.
The goal now for most of us is to live a productive life, to do as much good as we can and leave this world a little better off for our being here.
The people who come here are being shown a variety of different paths, ideas and concepts they can select from so they can continue to move forward at their own pace.
