For at least two months before their visits, it's pure panic and politics, eg - who's going to take them to lunch and how much tax-free cash you'll want to stuff in their pockets.

The cash, et al, are like bribes to get brownie points.

I was always jealous of them too. I didnt want tog ive up my whole life and live out of my car and have to show up and work day and night like they do and travel miles and miles every week and always be helping other people, but i did want the attention they got and the gifts people gave them. I never gave them anything though did you?

“The conversations may be different, so you have to be flexible with what you talk about,” she said.

They probably will be receiving a letter from the mother ship telling them exactly what to say when someone asks them about the civil suit that the publishing company just lost.

Jehovah's people are the happiest people on earth, despite all the problems that Satan is causing them to endure until the end.

We know that Satan and his dupes are busy trying to separate the witnesses, he can only separate those who are not loyal and faithful to Almighty God Jehovah and his visible earthly organization.

The faithful and loyal witness knows that Satan is effective, thousands are disfellowshiped every year for conduct unbecoming a true Christian.

Those who leave on their own, do so because they cannot continue in God's service without his holy spirit, and if you lose Jehovah's holy spirit you cannot think spiritually anymore, you only think according to the flesh.

That means that you disfellowship yourself and you think thoughts influenced by Satan and not by influence of God's holy spirit.

Ran into one this morning that said the Law was abolished.

I said, "Show it to me."

They refused to open their Bible. Just said they wouldn't argue and had to respect other people's religions.

Who loves them??
I found them to be the biggest hypocrites with huge egos who expected people to bow and kiss their rings when they entered a room.

Just like the Popes and Cardinals Jehovah's Witness envy so much.

I`m not being a wise guy, witness of Jehovah God, just asking a honest question. How is everlasting punishment that Jesus spoke of simply not knowing anything. That doesn`t seem like punishment since as far as I know we didn`t know anything for eternity before we were born?Thanks.
