What do "they" say about the rediscovery of the round Tabernacle and the body of Project 314 publications and research, and should it matter what "they" say?
While most people realize that individual opinion matters—and should always be weighed and considered on merit and truth that is contained therein, the unfortunate reality is that people are often highly motivated by peer pressure; and as such, people often give a disproportionate measure credibility to opinions shared by a majority.
For better and for worse, consensus goes a long way in academic environments and in shaping public opinion. In fact, this "truth in numbers" principle even has Biblical merit, whereby facts in a court of law are to
be established by two or three witnesses (Deuteronomy 19:15). However, other Biblical mandates also warn about blindly following the multitude into doing evil (Exodus 23:2). So in the event that there is a multitude
of witnesses speaking in agreement, but only two or three voices speaking in opposition to the majority, what is an impartial observer to do? Should the larger number of people automatically be considered to be
correct, just because they are in the majority?
In the advertising world, product testimonials usually come from hand-picked feedback that is exclusively positive and endorsing. However, as an audience living in the real world, we know that life isn't always peaches
and cream, or if you prefer, sunshine and lollipops. Some things are good and some things are bad; and just as some things are beautiful, some things are ugly. There's no sense in living in denial and pretending
that bad and ugly things don't exist; however, it's also shameful to label things that are good and beautiful as bad and ugly.
As indicated in the Hebrew Proverbs, justice demands that both sides of an argument are considered before rendering a verdict (Proverbs 18:17). Given this principle, this Tabernacle Testimonies page will allow users to post comments about the Tabernacle projects from differing points of view, whether they be good, bad, or even ugly.
Did this Tabernacle revelation in some way inspire you or cause you to understand some other profound truth? Have you come to see the Scriptures in a different light given this Tabernacle revelation?
Does this project allow you to see God as a competent designer, or perhaps the Scriptures as making sense where they did not before? If so, please take a moment and share your story.
As for "good" comments, this page isn't intended for the accumulation of flattering remarks, as flattery is inherently destructive (Proverbs 29:5-6). While it is nice to be encouraged, please remember that testimonies are primarily intended for public consideration. Remember, voices of two or three witnesses tend to get stifled in the midst of two or three hundred witnesses. Thus, the intention here is to get more witnesses—perhaps two or three thousand witness—to help counter the multitude of voices speaking in ignorance or opposition.
As indicated above, if you passionately hold a traditional view of the Tabernacle that is contrary to Project 314, you care encouraged to offer your testimony on this page. In fact, if you are convicted
that the Round Hebrew Tabernacle is evil to the core, you have some measure of public duty to speak against it. That being said, so long as contrary views are presented objectively and on-topic, criticism
against the project or research materials will not be construed as offensive.
However, please bear in mind that whatever you post in opposition may be used in a way that is contrary to your intentions, and in a way that is useful for Project 314 purposes. Most negative criticism, even of the ill-mannered variety, that has been received to date has been construed as useful in developing or fortifying counter-arguments, which ultimately leads to further engagement in Bible text details. Regardless,, if you think you have the silver bullet to take down this giant round Tabernacle notion, take your best shot.
If you've come here with the intention of saying things that are ugly, that's your prerogative. You can try and your ugly comments may even be posted. Just remember that if the essence of your post your
personal attacks, chances are, it will leave you looking like a fool. After all, criticism that is rooted in off-topic and personal attacks does nothing more than demonstrates a lack of tact and discretion,
as well as an inherent inability to formulate an intelligent argument.
So please, try to be polite and articulate in your criticism.; otherwise it's bound to be identified for what it is and will end up being be added to the comedy category...
