No, you are guessing wrong, but I am guessing that you are a theocratic warrior working for the organization trying to discredit all of the people exposing your misguided cult with ad hominem attacks.

Prove me wrong if you can.
*more ad hominem attacks prove nothing and just make you look more ridiculous than you already appear to be.

It isn't about hate. If you took the time to read and digest what I have had to say in the over 11,000 posts that I have posted here on topix you would see it is all about the GOD that the historical Jesus taught is unconditional LOVE.

This is in direct conflict with the teachings of the antisemitic organization of Jehovah's Witnesses who actually reject the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel at the core of the teachings of the historical Jesus for this primitive anthropological god instead:

http://www.seanet.com/~raines/jehovah.html

Your religion, the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses has done a lot of damage to a lot of people. It's insane and is not even remotely Christian.

I am concerned for those trapped inside this cult just as any decent human being would be concerned for those trapped inside a burning building.

When you yell "Flee for your lives to those in a burning building you don't hate the people trapped inside the building, you just want to warn them so that they may escape the fire.

Your bloodbath theology is an insult to the ONE TRUE GOD and a very real danger to the real spiritual growth of those poor unfortunate souls that are trapped inside of this hateful cult!

Wake up and stop being a part of the problem and start participating in being a part of the solution!

Cut the bullshit, grandpa, I saw your claim to have been a JW before you hid your profile comments.

You are obviously a fanatic who hates their group. Why spend so much time ranting about them? Life is short, dude. Have you ever considered taking OCD meds to help you move on and not obsess so much?

That is only what you think, the truth is hidden from you, as well as every other person not open to the light of truth today. Only the meek people on this earth will see how that Scripture shows going door to door is the work Jesus gave his disciples to do, and only the true Christians today go door to door using only the Holy Bible.

Question for Karen

What's wrong with going into a bar and reading a bible?.

Strange as that may look...To me that would be courageous.

Why do automatically infer that people who frequent bars are of people of poor moral character?.

Below you will find it is wrong to even be at drinking parties. One must stay away from places which will tempt him to do evil things. Just being at these places tryng to live right and correct those living evil lives enrages those doing evil to the point they will turn on you speaking evil of you. Be careful where you go and who you hang around with (1Cor15:33).

33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

(1Peter 4:2,3)-2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

(1Peter 4:4)
wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them into the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

Ye run not with them ... Perhaps here is the source of a common expression, running with" this or that social set, or with certain friends or associates.

Excess of riot ... The tendency of all riot, lust, violence, etc., is for the indulgence to increase, being multiplied geometrically beyond all consideration or reason. Those who indulge are like an engine with no governor and subject to unlimited acceleration until it is destroyed.

They think it strange ... speaking evil of you ... No one is any more unpopular at a drinking party than a teetotaler; and the same is true of all abstainers from popular sins.

Is every bar a drinking party with outrageously loud music and bad people?.

Not to sound offensive. But, you must have not ever got out much.

One can physically put themselves in the most innocent looking of situations and have bad intentions.

But, i do know what you mean and i appreciate your post.

Let me explain it this way. Would you take Jesus into a bar? If you were walking into a bar, and some of your co workers seen you do this, how do you think they would perceive you? The way our world is today, bars are not good places for a Christian to be. We know that most people, and I did not way all, get drunk, get involved in relationships with someone other than their mate, they get into fights. In some bars they have woman dancing half naked, and in some cases naked in front of people. Do you think that your coworkers would see you as being a good Christian if they seen you going into a bar, or do you think they would see you as the type of person who went there for all those other things? It is on us as Christians to set a good example for those around us, we would not go into a bar to read the bible in the first place, and we would want to stay away from places that would put a bad name on the Lord, or us as a Christian.
I do know there are those who go to bars to help those who are in trouble and this is their ministry, but I would think that people would probably know that this is why they are going there.

It is amazing how we can almost write word for word some of the things they say. I also remember saying these words to others while defending the "truth".

So you are saying Jesus was lying when he was praying to his heavenly Father, Almighty God Jehovah, when he said that God hides the truth from people who think they are wise and know everything.

That is why only the meek and humble before Jehovah God are the ones that Jesus will accept as his subjects today.
The light of truth is the same today as it was when the early Christians had to accept Jesus as the only way to everlasting life.

Do not think you are safe and have salvation already, no one is saved until you survive the end of this world ruled by Satan the Devil.... you are either the children of Jehovah God or Satan in this world. 1John 3:10-12

Unlike you and the other theocratic warriors defending the organization, nanoanomaly, I take the two most important commandments in the bible seriously.

Of course the unconditional LOVE taught by the historical Jesus conflicts with your judgmental bloodbath theology of conditional love making your hateful behavior understandable.

I am doing what I was trained to do from the time I was born until I was cast out of the organization at the age of 28. The only difference is that now I really do have the TRUTH to share with humanity.

This is why I have been using this tagline that sums up the TRUTH that the historical Jesus tried to share to close my posts with most of the time here on topix:

"GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!"

The problem is that you have been taught to worship a graven image instead of the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel that is at the heart of the message of the historical Jesus.

The OMNIPRESENT GOD you and your earthly masters reject is LOVE:

1 John 4:8 (King James Version)

"8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."

This is why you and your fellow theocratic warriors are so mean and hateful here on topix. you have turned away from the TRUE GOD to follow Judge Rutherford and his god of conditional love derived from the pages of the occult novel, Angels and women.

And, nanoanomaly, the only reason I hid my profile comments is because of JW trolls that follow me to find information to use in later ad hominem attacks, like the LSD experience I was disfellowshiped for over 40 years ago that you JWs keep throwing up in a dishonest attempt to discredit my posts.

Now you wouldn't do something that despicable, nanoanomaly, would you ?

And another thing, nanoanomaly, Jesus taught us to LOVE our enemies.

You and your fellow followers on the other hand though are taught to hate your enemies.

The proof is in the many hateful posts that have been made attacking those who disagree with you and your fellow warriors.

This is why you are so fixated on the absurd idea that I hate the people in the organization. Your masters have taught you to hate so that all that you see is this hate reflected all around you.

Only someone consumed with the fear of a psychotic god can hate their neighbors as much as you do.

I'll go with Jesus and LOVE.

Have a good evening.

Were you drunk when Christians were teaching the ways to Christ?

And you call yourself a Christian?

I'm not defending them, just pointing out your lack of a "live and let live" attitude.

FYI, I don't follow any church's doctrine. I've been in several different churches as a visitor since I was a little kid and none have appealed to me enough to become a member. Attending church is not my cuppa, but I respect the right of everybody who wants to do it to be able to do it without being taunted by some loon.

BTW, the religion forum on Topix is a fairly obscure place to be preaching either for OR against any doctrine. There are very few people who ever visit this forum, much less this particular thread, so just who the fk do you think you are swaying with your rants?

Holy crappoley, I couldn't care less what freaky drug you took in your misspent youth, grandpa.

You appear to give too much of a shyt what the members of a group you no longer hang with think about you. Life is short, let it go and move on. Those JWs you used to "fellowship" with likely never give you a second thought anymore. Why let something that happened so long ago eat at you like this? BTW, you don't sound like you've yet to be all that filled with Jesus's love that you mentioned. Didn't Jesus say to forgive, forgive, forgive.....

You're only hurting yourself with all this hate talk.
