“I am .. bewildered in the wake of Jonestown, why more time wasn’t spent .. in somebody, not out in the plains of Waco but maybe in a nice comfortable office in Washington didn’t immerse themselves in the religious tenets of this Branch Davidian group.”
I have expressed the very same in the opening post – if government will not take the time to learn the tenets of any religious group they are investigating, yet more tragedies may occur. Government agents will be treated and viewed by relifious groups as authoritative only if they are not opposing the group’s view of God’s law – and that is the instruction God provides in the Bible. So if government agents do not understand what a religious group’s view of God’s law is, they make themselves easy failures in any attempt to enforce the laws made by men upon any religious group.
That is why I included the big and most important tenet of 2x2ism - that of the 2x2 "goods news" (gospel) of Homeless preachers and meetings in homes.
In some places even in North America, religious gatherings in homes (meetings in homes) are a violation of law and or zoning by laws. And if government agents try to force 2x2s into compliance with those laws over God's law (their key Gospel message) those government agents will run smak up against the very same type of religious resistance from 2x2s who will keep God's law over man's laws every time.
