Hi Mike,I've had a question brewing for a long time, which is now sparked off by your post in rbanks thread on Pagan Christianity. One snippet of your thoughts reads
This feeds into a large part of what was attempted in Procterandgambleites- Misrepresentation and those things that are lead out of them - Fear and fear mongering, tall tales - Poor research ... source material, etc. etc.
It's a mixed bag for sure, I recognize that as well ... Had posted this earlier here;[i]This whole running post is a large data dump - It's not all one grand agreement in so many nuances. It's not setup as a large apologetic or 'watch dog' though it contains those elements. Just another attempt to cause some thought, I guess yes, critical thinking - We being such tricksters of our own fallen minds.Pretty much had run through those things that I had found originally but certain words have again brought up more food for thought - Fear. Facts. Integrity, even the very cementing phrase you just used - love for truth - How often do we settle for those things that are not true, that fall short of 'true truth' and lapse into heeding so much soothsaying, speculative reasonings, 'prophecies' that with the insert of even a couple of months just fade into the abyss, as if they were never worth considering but cause all kinds of excitement and fear while they are in motion?Would love to see and hear others thoughts towards it all, additions, subtractions, what have you.[/i]Not sure if that helps answer the question.
