Joan has left a new comment on your post "House of Lords 27/2/14":
Dear Anonymous 28 February 2014 18:07 - I think you may have misread what I wrote:
"I would very much like to inform the Chair of the Charity Commission, William Shawcross, and Bernard Jenkin MP, Chair of Parliament's Public Administration Select Committee, that this group of Exclusive Brethren is changing."
I was expressing the hope that I might [one day] be able to tell William Shawcross and Bernard Jenkin MP that this group is changing. In fact, all I could tell them today is that I'm unhappy about the way these Brethren are treating me at the moment. It doesn't in the least accord with their commitment in the variation of the Preston Down trust deed.
I'm getting the impression that the Brethren's belief that the Charity Commission matter has been resolved (I have that in writing from a member) has meant that they're no longer striving to represent themselves as people who act for others' benefit.
I've been astonished at the abusive way some of their supporters have written on this blog this year. As well, my individual attempts to establish positive relationships with various members are being ignored and I have even been smeared (in writing) as someone who has acted to undermine Christianity.
For the record, I am in touch with two senior members of the Brethren who are unfailingly courteous. I wish that all Brethren would take a leaf out of their book and understand that withdrawal from 'adikia' (= iniquity in the Brethren's charter verse 2 Timothy 2:19) simply means that they mustn't commit illegal or unjust acts.
The Brethren's main responsibility is to love God, love their neighbour as themselves and to love their enemy, and it would be great to be able report to Mr Shawcross and Mr Jenkin that that is happening.
But I'm repeating myself - please excuse me, readers of this blog!
