Re: Ford Johnson's book: "Confessions of a God Seeker"
- Hello, Ingrid!
I like your point of view--you have made excellent points! I think
that the HCS and TS BBs have been on a downward spiral for some time
now. Some of the best posters are long gone. Too bad, but perhaps
there is a chance for renewed invigorating growth. Time will tell
the tale! I have not liked the emphasis on conspiracy theories going
on over there. It seemed that no matter what anyone posted, someone
would always bring the discussion back to the same old talk about
these theories. Very boring for sure. It kind of reminded me of a
child who discovers that Santa Claus is a myth--he can't get over
the reality of Santa being a myth, so he goes out into the world to
inform everyone as though it is big news! Ha! The truth is most
people already knew it, except for the younger little kids who
hadn't learned the truth yet. : ) It's all rather juvenile I think
in terms of Spiritual enlightenment.
