Hi there bro AJ,
Why are there wars George with all of this? I would think that anyone involved with Monjoronson or Michael would be happy to find common ground, keep their egos in check, and not look to fight over things?
There are basically two camps at a human level... those that are largely "churches" and those that are largely "progress". With us, 11:11 Progress, you are looking at the first visible Urantia-Book-text-based group.
"Churches" includes those that are basically the "anchor" of the Correcting Time Movement. "Progress" by its very nature pushes the boundaries... and... you might even say that we are into "a body count" as some "churches" guys put it. Bringing people together -- International Outreach, as Machiventa puts it.
Many "churches" guys and gals are also on our lists, and a flood of complaints will hit this list-op if we push too far. That is the reason for us being a one-way list -- no one can destroy it. As well, after working with some of the 1,111 since I was seven years old, having written 5 books together with them, and dropping into Alpha for most of my day, I can usually "get" whatever may be too dicey to go out to 1250 subscribers... possibly some 4000 present-day readers with pass-on lists and web site readers thrown in. Forget the millions of our great-great-great grandkids for now.
We can "tone things down" if need be, as Bzutu, Simone, or Mathew and I go over the transmits as they come in, especially where a progress receiver may have pushed too far.
However, the Teaching Mission does not have those "checks and balances", and debates between themselves, their often breaking up, even over our
But even at an angelic level are there disputes between "churches" and "progress" tho there are those with a final say. Not so at the human level. We need to learn to give and take... and we don't, depending on open or closed minds.
I was with a dear receiver friend in the US, when one of Monjoronson's Paradise Helpers came through. We had a great time with this Paradise Son, as He insisted on getting His own chair, and (this was a scream) insisted on being addressed as "George".
Info that came through (known only to me) convinced me this was real, and I since chatted with Monjoronson, but some "churches" guys are not open to this new M. development, and I must stay out of the line of fire... never again start a two-way list, just stick to my deal, hide the receivers, so they don't get badgered.
It's complex, all care taken, thin ice territory at times, but we cannot overlook "churches" important (somewhat fundamentalist) task of disallowing the whole Correcting Time Movement to go overboard. Unchecked, Progress would go overboard. We learned that lesson the hard way.
Our subscribers are pussycats AND tigers, mixed up. Finding balance in transcripts going out is the task, and, true, I have some of my own transmits here that would never go to the lists in case they blew a few fuses.
Hope this helps....
