Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
I watched “Jonestown: Paradise Lost” documentary two weeks ago. This movie told about religious organization, which called “Peoples Temple”. 918 members of the organization, including 276 children, suicided or were killed in 18 Nov 1978. I was shocked by this movie. I’d like to share my point of view about this.
There weren’t intrinsic evil in the organization. On the contrary, the organization helped poor, homeless people and wanted to build better live. Unfortunately, isolation, not only distance isolation, but cognitive isolation, suppression of other-minded people and concentration of power lead to such devastating consequences.
I think, this is vital to have other-minded people and give some power to them.
