Re: Are we a Community or a Cult?
great speech, however i disagree with some of his points.
Like "don't go there, don't go here".
i think that we shud be more careful from who we get knowledge
and from who we take lessons.
When one starts to study Faith and the world his living in, he immediatly start to realize stuff that other's do not, and this other's can even be your very own family.
when we are born we are taken care by our family, and the family is taken care by such and such groups of people. and those groups of people are taken care by such and such traditions and cultural way of life.
this traditions an cultural way of life comes from such and such tribes/nations.
what im trying to say is...
how many of you were awake and more wiser before The Arrivals, or maybe before you had a kick inside and suddenly started to brainstorm about the system you were living in?
let's not lie to ourselves... we weren't awake and wise at all when we were growin, and taken care by our family...
and once you were awake and learned all kinds of stuff about the world, the system, Faith, whatever..
what was the first thing you did?
you tried to convince your family about these things didn't you?
what were their reactions?
not pretty cool eh... they didn't really believed you did they?
in my case, when i tried to convince my family, i became a stranger immediately.
even when i told things about Faith to my family, they were looking with doubtful eyes.
so let alone trying to explain the system.
in order to stay awake and aware of events and so that is going on, what do you need to do?
continue with your studies about these things don't you?
you can't be in this way and in the way of dunya at the same time..
if you choose the be with the community, you'll loose your view of the world and you'll start to follow everything blindly again.
if you go too much deep in the cult mode, you'll simply deceive yourself.
you have to stay in between... you need to find the way where you see and learn every truth wich is a little bit cult mode
but then you need to take that knowledge and spread it to whoever possible
well atleast giving it a try, if they'll listen...
this brother is going for the community mode.. it sounds cool and nice yes..
but it just won't work you know.. a clash of different idea's and sect's is what you will get...
we already have loads of differences, wich even made us enemy's to each other as whole groups
1 god 1 rule 1 system of life is what count's for me.
maybe i didn't explained it clearly
but i hope you understand what i mean
