As a former worker and friendly, this concept was very much implied and quite frankly I totally bought into it as well. Revelation of newbies was satisfactory to the workers when this was part of it. And if people were drawn to the meetings but came already saved, we rejected them. When I stopped going to meetings, I was then considered lost. I do understand where people are coming from when they no longer consider me saved, because I was there once. It is part of what truly bothers me. I think Al articulated it very well in saying that this way is a system and there are specific reactions to certain actions. It is to be expected. My single goal when stopping my meeting attendance was to see if I could start over again and expunge all the old ideas and mental responses from my mind, as well as all the things I had been taught and try to see the new testament with fresh eyes and understanding. If it leads me back to meetings then I would try to go, but if not I would want to see it does lead.
Nique - thanks for sharing. May God bless you on your journey.
