It is kind of religion that two of my friends joined this year, which named 精舍 but they just call it a “sharing”. One of them have joined it for about half year and invited another with her last month. Recently, they continuously and eagerly persuaded me to go with them. However, what I found was something different about them, no matter the talking style or the way they think. It is indeed weird since they just entered the team for such a short time and have such a big change. Thus, I tried to search as many information as possible from what they told me through the internet. One thing I have to say is, they said that it is merely a “sharing” instead of a religion. But what I found is, it is indeed a religion, which really shocked me.
The religion mentioned above has something do with money according to some forums. However, I was shocked for my friends seemed conceal too much information on purpose when I asked them what the group they are in. I felt being cheated but wanted to know the reason why they changed. Besides, I strongly believe it is the group that influenced them. Hence, I took some actions as follow.
First, I did not accept their invitation since I really do not want to join a religion. Second, I tried to tell them what I feel about the group they go since they tried to persuade me every week. Third, I tried to grasp more about the group from two of my friends and tried to know what they really are doing.
I had told my parents about the group and they also said it is the last place I should go to. Therefore, I gradually think it is really where we should not go and it is time I ask them to leave. But then, the thought “Everyone has their freedom to choose what they believe” came up. So, I will still show consideration for them as usual and wait and see. Hope they would not do anything they will regret.
