Default Re: Can I be candid?

KNB, the LSM/lc is steeped in the Asian culture, values, & thinking of its progenitors Nee & Lee. Individuals must subsume to the collective. And some individuals, like blacks & women, even moreso. Anyone with talent or distinction must hide in order not to challenge leadership. Don't want to draw attention.

Of course, there's plenty of room for ambition. Just be a Maximum Cheerleader for the Maximum Brother. How do you think EM, BP, RK, MC, RG et al got where they are? Duh.

I left the LSM/lc & went into a group that made the LSM/lc look pale. Women couldn't speak in church - Paul said so. No instruments - not any in the NT. Etc. Eventually I left that & gave up on religion, and God.

God wasn't paying attention to me; why should I pay attention to God? I got tired of trying to talk to a silent God.

Eventually, I began to re-engage with the notion, simply because a universe with no conceptual center wasn't very appealing to me. I really wanted some place to hang my proverbial hat. But it was my journey. I took ownership ( or at least began to try). And that made all the difference. It's my journey.

Thanks for writing, here.
