Elders arranged a sort of informal visit by a more capable Elder accompanied by another brother who is more qualified than me from academic background. Their purpose was to reason with me as a last resort to avoid a JC.
During the two-hour discussion, I could make my point clear to them: “I don’t think any one particular religion has the whole truth. It may be existing as bits and piece in all religions and schools of thought. For example, look at the Bible. Its very first phrase “In the beginning” itself is wrong because there is always something preceding to something which means there cannot be a beginning for anything. Yet the Bible has got some obvious truths too such as Mathew 25:31-46 which clearly says everyone is judged on the basis of his/her humanitarian act, not on the basis of their religious acts.”
‘This is a sign of apostasy,’ they responded.
