    ...Resulting in many WCG folk voting with their feet, a bad result for them and the church. There's a strong need for humans, ministers included, to understand how gullible, imperfect, sinful and SELF DELUDED we tend to be and are!

    This sermon is another"blast from the past" all the way back to the church of the apostles actually. Truly there's "nothing new under the sun," especially where human nature is concerned! This sermon replicates many fromthe then WCG and will be repeated in various styles till Christ returns I expect! It's a sobering, reality therapy sermon, necessary because despite the illusions some may have. Christians are flesh and blood humans, subject to human nature, as was the apostle who thirty or more years into his calling. Stated he was still sinning; his honesty and grasp of reality is an example for Christians, ministry included, self righteousness didn't then seem to be a sin of his! Ray Smith, Ministers had and have that "problem," it existed in WCG and resulted in many dis fellowships, voluntary exits, sadness and schisms in WCG. That "problem"isn't solely applicable to the ministry however, it's a sin that often blinds it's victim.So they/ we/ whoever: often don't know they're so inflicted.

    Well, I don't know you, but I assume you know a little about the cloak and dagger that existed in WCG (Armstrong), I tend to believe that ministers don't care if they reconcile or not, they get their salary, so agape Love may not be a driving force in their lives.

    I believe the real problem in reconciliation is self - rightous attitudes of ministers who accuse rather than having an attitude of reconciliation, I know I have experienced it several years ago. But I continue to surrender to Gods instructions and depend on HIs Mercy and Grace. I pray for ministers who have that problem.

    What happens when a minister and brethren get in disagreements, words are said, because of lack of empathy, sympathy, caused by stubbornness, arrogance, self righteousness, etc., that causes the brethren to quit attending cause the minister doesn't understand(or want to), the circumstances of a brother who has been blackballed)? What is the reconciliation process? Can communication and reconciliation be possible? How does God look at that? It is not good for fellow brethren to put stumbling blocks in front of brethren striving to obey Gods Laws, precepts and statutes. We all strive to please God and to live in accordance with Gods instructions in the bible. IT is important that the brethren (and Ministers), seek Gods help, and our opinions should reflect Gods Opinions.
