Re: Healthy Responses to Objections: The Learned Man Object

I was just agreeing with what SD mentioned earlier...i agree... it feels to me that when people generally use phases like "this is a problem in all churches, just not ours..." it comes across as a conversion and discussion stopper more than an attempt to get at the heart of the issue and problems.

Re: Healthy Responses to Objections: The Learned Man Object

Re: Teacher removed for teaching essay!

As much as the PR department says they’re trying to get the word out about the essays, they’re simply not. There’s no incentive to bring this knowledge to the faithful TBM’s.

Really great comments SD, as usual. Silentdawning wrote: I think there is a definite place for criticism. 1. There are times when you get REALLY BAD leaders, and it can affect people's health, self-esteem, inner peace, and activity. In those times, it helps to have a support group who can help you c...
