As I said before, purposely withholding information from someone that you know would have a huge impact on their testimony is deceit, regardless of your reason for doing so. Do you not agree?
Meh. You are still looking at this from an earthly aspect. God will be our Judge. Vengeance belongs to God, as well. You have purposely avoided addressing the points in my comments in order to hold onto your agenda. Thus, you are doing the same thing as what you accuse the Church of doing. I don't have a problem with this; I merely point it out for demonstration purposes. This will wind up doing you no good; and it will not do good for any whose faith can be destroyed by your agenda. Anyone who purposefully leads another astray, OR who purposely seeks to destroy another's faith in God by tearing away at their belief system, will be held accountable.
Even though the Pharisees were teaching as doctrine the commandments of men, the people's faithfulness to what they believed was counted as righteousness to them. It didn't matter that what they believed was correct or incorrect.
Jesus taught His Apostles that whoever is not against us is on our part. It appears that your agenda has a very high likelihood of turning people away from their faith in God. In this way, you are against Jesus.
We are supposed to keep the two great commandments. There is much wisdom in them. By trying to ensnare the Church in any deceitful practices, even if they ARE guilty, you have also ensnared yourself. It happens that I do think they have used poor choices--but my faith in God is not affected by this knowledge. However, since others ARE affected in a very negative way, I no longer seek to harp upon the weaknesses of men in leadership positions of ANY religion with the intent of causing someone else to give up their belief system, because this can lead to the destruction of another person's faith in God.
We all need to be aware of which camp we are standing in; either in God's camp, or in the adversary's camp.
