Once again “I will say” this board is about the “UHOP” and your “Daddies”. You can’t control the wrong doings of the UHOP, and you want to take the burdens of correcting what other religions are doing. You know nothing about them, other then what you read.Once again I have not heard any of you giving the same damnation to other religious orders. Many of the same things you critique the HOP for doing, happens elsewhere and it is many times worst. What church but the Catholic Church could have with stood the sex abuse scandal? And where is the true accounting in other churches. And a "financial statement" means nothing. Always remember Bernie Madoff gave out "financial statements" as well.
Your comments on music is a good point. But my mother and grandmother made sure that I was never caught up in to that. I was always asked "what did the preacher speak about and what did you get from it". Many pastors feel that a band draws people but I have pointed out that if that was true, Charlotte's houses would be overflowing with people. And Portsmouth would be the top house. It's not the music that is the problem but the thinking that you cannot have a good worship experience without it. I have told my own son that he has to learn to play the piano and until he gets great at that, no horn will be picked up. Give me 5 good piano players over 3 great bands any day of the week.
Damnation, this is how you see the knowledge we give to you. Just because other Churches do it, does it make it right. Re-read your first paragraph, you believe everything you read about other people religions, but won’t believe the truth we have supplied about the UHOP.
Is this a “Daddy Thing?”
What good is making your son learn the piano if the only places you are going to allow him too play is in the UHOP? A lot of people were able to remove them selves from the poverty level by using the talents God gave them. The UHOP made sure you all stayed on the same level of poverty by not allowing your talents to work for you.
By the way, it is the Music that draws you to the UHOP. Be it the sound of a horn or piano, you said it. Quote:“Give me 5 good piano players over 3 great bands any day of the week”. It’s all music, no matter what is used to play it.
