the big response...Dear Brent, I appreciate you getting back with me. It sounds like you no longer need to address the areas you were interested in previously. I am not trying to change your beliefs in any way. I do respect your beliefs and am glad that it sounds like you have read some of the Basics. Should you change your mind in the future, you know what courses are available for your use.Regards,Lynn
...Hopefully this is the end of Scientology trying to get you back on lines. (fingers crossed)
Well that was a graceful way to admit defeat. At least she (or someone) read it.Hopefully this is the end of Scientology trying to get you back on lines. (fingers crossed)
The First Epistle of Brent to the Scientologians - this is true evangelism, expressing the Gospel in terms of the culture of those to whom it is spoken. "Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if necessary", said St. Francis of Assisi. You have done both in this situation. Will it have an impact on Lynn? Who knows? That is up to God in his own time yand not us; but you have planted a seed of doubt and shone a ray of light in the darkness.I recently exchanged messages with a Sea Org member who has become a new Christian. He is a second generation cultist. In the middle of a brutal sec check he prayed to God to deliver him, and God heard his prayer. God gave him to opportunity and courage to escape. He wrote me that thereafter God continued to lead. Strangers came into his life to feed him and offer him a place to stay until he got back on his feet.Nearly his entirely family is still in, and he continues to love them and hope for their salvation from the cult. His parents are aging and too scared to leave. He sends them money.Even though they have disconnected they have learned how to lie in sec checks and write to him for money from time to time when they really get desperate. To paraphrase St. Paul, "Brent planted the seed; Anonlover watered the plant, but it is God who gives the increase."
Do you know where this SO was posted? I am currently in COMM with a SO at BridgePub, working on her to try and help her out, however her husbands also SO, though I suspect she has not seen him in over a year based on the fact that she has avoided talking about him each time I asked.
Just a reminder that part 3 of my series Kingdom of Cults: Scientology will be broadcast live via the spreaker app and my website www.brentw.org. Tomorrows topics, KSW, Leah Remini, Shelly Miscavige, a special interview with my lovely wife who told the church to shove it, and much much more!!!
