Click here to read this insightful online dialogue with 2 followers of Ephraim, and 2 who do not. This exchange gives good insights as to the methodologies of arguing from followers of Ephraim. Routine emotion is one typical response. Labeling and dismissiveness is another. Both of which have a concluding statement of “please forgive me” as if to make it more palpable. We do believe that these people are genuinely good. But they have had their good and naive nature exploited by the fact that they had a good experience at the Monastery. The are not all aware of all the facts. But for some reason, they do not wish to even consider that it is okay to investigate questions that are raised by people throughout the United States and Canada. Their emotions unfortunately seem to compromise their objectivity. Reading this dialogue takes the “heat of the moment” emotion out of the equation and leaves the reader a clearer understanding of the issues.
