Ok, maybe this has been approached in a less than efficient way up to now-
so let's try the kind of appeal that the magnificent Yehoshua himself offered when he addressed the 7 Churches in the book of Revelation.
'Dear one/Yosef; we know (of) your works, that you do spurn the ways of
the ones who have deceived, robbed and stolen from the 'poor' among you,
and that you have cried aloud and have spared not, against those who
would clean trod down into the bowels of the earth, those who cannot defend themselves.
We know that your good works spring from a good heart, and that your reward is virtually assured against the times to come'...
but this aught we have against you, dear one/Yosef; in that there have been a number of those, myself included, who have subtly suggested that collectively, we are not the least bit interested in any future association with such an entity as that which you refer to as the NPTB.
Wasn't the OPTB scurrilous and scandalous enough to last this planet thru the next 1000 Milennia? - yes, the next Thousand-Thousand years, without simpishly engaging yet another iteration of initially benevolent-but-inevitably-rakish, selfishly inclined tyrants...? Do you so thoroughly trust in the human nature(s) of your much vaunted NPTB that you are fully persuaded that they are totally willing to perpetually "do no harm"?
Maybe Yosef, you can help us understand the marketing psychology behind the persistant promotion of such an entity as an NPTB.
Personally, it makes my skin crawl everytime I see that acronym, and lately I'm finding myself skimming through your posts to prepare ahead of time to steel myself against being visually exposed to such an abominable concept as yet another NPTB (God help us, please, to awaken).
Finally however, this post is not intended to attempt to dissuade Yosef, nor any other being of free will, from their personal predilections. History does indeed bear witness to the remarkable phenomena of persons who were so enamored with their own enslavement, and such persons are fully entitled to engage in such as they choose.
My purpose in offering this is to simply remind All to remember how we got into this un-holy hell of a mess in the first place; and to not repeat the travesties of surrendering our personal, God given sovereignty as the direct offspring of the most Holy One to any other group of God-less, un-Anointed, un-Christed beings ever again...Not Ever Again!
It is in Love, and with Love, and because of Love that i implore All wthi this-
It is indeed our choice who Rules us - Either we rule ourselves as sovereigns
under God, or we continue to suffer as fools under garish tyrants.
Dear Ones - *Let's Now Choose Wisely*
No Fear Here
