    Here is an apostate elder's honest testimony.

  • Ding

    A very thoughtful man...

    My fear is that he's trying to go this alone.

    Sounds like a Crisis of Conscience.

  • Vanderhoven7

    Yes, and it seems like this elder has paid a heavy price for his crisis of conscience.

  • Kosonen

    Yes, the truth is more important than the unity in the end.

    You can overlook some errors for a while, but not too long.

    What's the point of pointing to other religion's false doctrines if you are not allowed to do the same to one's own religion?

    Romans 2:1 Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are, if you judge; for when you judge another, you condemn yourself, because you who judge practice the same things.

    19 and you are convinced that you are a guide of the blind, a light for those in darkness, 20 a corrector of the unreasonable ones, a teacher of young children, and having the framework of the knowledge and of the truth in the Law— 21 do you, however, the one teaching someone else, not teach yourself?

    It's the sin of presumptuousness, the thing that took down King Saul. He thought his actions would benefit the nation of Israel in the long run. To Saul Israel was more important than God. Do you worship an organization or God?

    Pointing out how wrong everybody else is whilst refusing to even acknowledge how wrong you might be (and threatening action if and when anyone else does it) is fundamentally dishonest and under-handed.

    The moment you use unethical methods in your efforts to claim the moral high ground, you forfeit the moral high ground.

    No matter who you are.
