I have issued Chad with a RED STRIKE as per recommendation from Mary due to his postings in the below thread:
Before I go into writing the main part of the strike thread up, I would like to say that I am in agreement with the reasons why Mary has felt it appropriate that this course of disciplinary action is to be taken. With regards to the below, my own writing will be in the normal BLACK colour, Chad's posting is in BLUE whilst Mary's is in PURPLE/PINK to help you in understanding the flow of the information.
Mary stated the below to Chad:
I totally agree with this and felt the same thing. I feel when you yourself are intellectually aware of a certain injury that is currently within your own soul, but then go ahead and act in the sin of the behaviour knowing (or maybe not) that it will cause pain and suffering to yourself and others, I would question how moral and ethical these actions are (from a Natural Love perspective, never mind from God's perspective). I feel what Chad has displayed above is a clear demonstration of a lack of humility and insincerity and is a great example of the difference between how much more dominant the soul (emotional) is over the mind (intellect), as no matter how much Chad tries to excuse and "dress up" his responses to Lena using words and intellect, if you are sensitive, you can still feel some of the soul based emotions coming from him (compulsion to justify, cause argument) which drove his actions.You are argumentative, and insincere about actually communicating with others in a loving way. You knowingly ignore Jesus' previous feedback about your biggest block to growth and continue to act in it.
For example you state:
"If you're sure you would like to have this conversation...a word of warning/confession, when I met AJ in Philadelphia he was kind enough to share with me what he felt was my single biggest issue preventing me from growing in love. I don't remember exactly how he worded it, but the issue is that I have an ability to justify unloving behaviour to others and myself. He nailed it, I can justify just about anything"
So even though you know that you like to argument for argument's sake (and in an unloving way) you go ahead and do it anyway.
This demonstrates that you have not joined this forum with any sincerity to learn, grow or share and instead you are acting in your addictions in your posts (I don't have time at present to go into detail about the specific additions you are acting in, but this is not really even necessary, you are acting in addiction and you know it). This alone places you in breach of forum guidelines. You are purposefully sinning.
Mary responded to Chad by stating the below:
I would just like to add that I feel there is some arrogance from Chad here when stating what he feels the Law of Attraction is when it is quite some way off from the truth of how this law operates - Mary has corrected these statements. This is another example of the ways in which our current set of injuries affect our accurate soul based grasp (emotional) of Divine Truth principles."I would still put it out there that advertising is Law of Attraction since the advertisers are drawn by content & community and the actual acting on the advertisement is LoA."
"There's no question that advertising DOES exploit injuries of all kinds - but that's law of attraction. It's demented to capitalize on it, but the lessons are there."
Actually, using a person's injuries to manipulate others and to get things (monetary or otherwise) from them is NOT 'law of attraction'. It is taking a purposeful will based decision to act unlovingly and is exploitative.
A predator is a person who profits from the emotional injuries of others. You continue to justify these predatory actions within yourself and in your chosen job (whether or not you still do the job - you still emotionally justify it).
You are the kind of person who profits from the destruction of other people.
It shows how "off" anyone can be when they only have formulated an intellectual idea of Divine Truth principles whilst the emotional errors remain which cause this to occur. It is the same when people misinterpret some of the statements that Jesus had stated in the first century based on their own emotional condition at the time of reading it and then gone on to act in the damage of the emotional sin that is within them thinking that they are doing the "right thing."
Finally, another forum member drew my attention to the below thread where Chad discussed the areas in which he feels Jesus & Mary are wilfully sinning:
While I feel that I could provide a number of responses to a few of the points raised, I feel again that Chad is acting in his current addictions by desiring to post this information. He will feel that what he has posted is "valid" and has "innocent" intentions yet I cannot agree. There is a desire within him to intellectually find anything that does not sit well in his own understanding of Divine Truth as a way to justify to himself why he does not want to commit to the path at the moment - which is fine, it is his own prerogative to do this if he so wishes as we all have the gift of free will. However, I feel that by allowing him to post in this manner, it will have a negative impact on the sincere members here whom do want to progress sincerely before "proof" of the at-onement condition is displayed. Like I said at the start of this thread, he is currently out of harmony with my own intentions behind the reasons why I created the forum and I am exercising my own prerogative by deeming that his current actions do not have a place on this forum - I hope this makes sense to you Chad.
There is a compulsion driving this action and at this moment in time bearing in mind his current motivations and intentions, no matter what anybody would say in response to him, he would find a way to intellectually disprove (wrongly) what they are saying (to feed his addictions further) and dismiss any love & truth that may be shared with him.
Mary may write another post in this thread to provide more examples and considerations of what has gone on here in terms of "God's Way" that we can all learn from.
