Proselytizing Among Ex-Members

When you look at the search engines for information about Armstrongism it quickly becomes clear that many are only in this field to proselytize for more members to their own church organizations.

This blog is DIFFERENT from all of that.

I don't want to prescribe what is right or what is wrong for you. I prefer inspiring you to think for yourself, and I strongly believe that independent thinking is the best protection against future cult involvement.

You NEED to be able to stand on your own two feet to be able to withstand temptations to "get back under" yet another (spiritual) parent. You MUST realize that there is no intermediary between you and God. YOU CAN THINK FOR YOURSELF, IF YOU'RE READY TO BECOME TRULY INDEPENDENT.

So today's inspiration is to THINK for yourself, and feel welcome to make comments to articles if you wish. Feedback is one of the best ways to understand what is good and what can be improved when I write.

Thanks very much beforehand for your comments.

Is this pro or against proselytizing among ex-members. To think for yourself is to agree with you? That, my friend, is circular reasoning. You can substitute for Mr. Armstrong? You haven't even explained your calling by God as he did. Are you calling people to be anti-religion also? Or, do you claim to have some other talent that will cause people to flock to you. As I think - so i am. The Word of God changes all that into 'as God thinks - so I think.' Is that cultish?

No, you're quite wrong on that. Qualified disagreement is just as welcome as long as it happens decently and in order.

I presume no calling - as some have done. I share what I know with those willing to listen and learn.

I hope that helps people. :-)
