Isn't it odd that people like that don't realize at some point in their lives, how abrasive and unloving they appear to everyone around them and know how their behavior can so negatively affect others? They never seem to reflect a drop of human compassion or true caring for anyone else, EVER.

in observation.. I think.. that people like that. have a low self esteem .. and an ego problem.. Kind of like ( the man of small stature ) Trying to use his words to bring others down to his level.. OR the little dog. with the big bark.
In one case ..the person grows up and has no friends, and in the others.. the dog goes to the pound.

you are so wronggggg. I know who I am in realtionship with Christ and what He did on the cross for us His creations so we could be His children....keep open mind and seek His promises

Jehovah's witnesses are people who are suppose to represent Almighty God Jehovah, we are suppose to imitate Jesus and his attitude toward our fellow man. That means we are suppose to show personal goodness and love toward others, no matter who they are. Jehovah God has standards that his people have always had to obey, the ancient nation of Israel, the first century Christians and those who want to serve him today. He doesn't change his standards for anyones preferences, he is worthy of obedience as Jesus obeyed him. His standard of excellence for his people is difficult to live up to, but those who try to conform to his requirements are blessed spiritually. Those who don't or are too lazy to make the needed adjustments are not honest, humble or hungry for righteousness, some people are not the sort that God wants to serve him, we have to change, not God.
Its not about wworks its about surrender love forgiveness grace and mercy. Jesus is the model for all this....

What's sad is ..people like yourself ..keep telling your self ..that your happy... And are constantly being fed the same message by the WTS.. In reality.. your life is no more happy them the billions of other people.. who live on this earth.. All striving to keep a roof over their head and their familys fed.
Basically , you have a warring in your head.. One that says.. If I'm so dog gone happy ..why am I depressed. And the reason is.. you live in a fantasy world.. You go thorough life devoting the vast majority of your life to a Church.. who main purpose in life is to get you to go through life devoting the majority of your life to ..( IT ). woo hoo. Not quite what GOD had in mind.

This could certainly be one very sensible explanation!

You are correct!

Even from the first sentence where you brought out how JWs must keep reminding themselves they are "happy", do you recall how many times the WTS WRITERS would remind us of the same thing.....just in case we might FORGET how jubilant we were to BE JWs?

I watched my family shatter, tatter and dissolve over a period of 30 years.....arrows of sadness aimed at my heart all those years....because of the WATCHTOWER'S policies and MY compliance with these hateful policies....not to mention my condescending attitude that the WTS taught me to carry in my heart towards ANY who did not obey the GB or worship in the same way as I did.

My heart soars with appreciation of following the instructions of the Golden Rule and the Two Laws that CHRIST teaches, now having left the faulty "spiritual leaders" of the WTS.

With all the rules and regulations over the years.. The Laws left by Christ. have been lost in the recreating of a set of laws.. not unlike those that Christ fullfilled and did away with.. As the bible says. Gal.5:14..

And THAT is "the Watchtower Society" in a nutshell.

yup! and surprizingly.. the followers don't see it.. The hue and cry is ... we need organization..they don't see what that statement got for those that fell out of God's favor ... because they chose to follow man.. rather then put they're total faith in God..
Even after Christ came and took away the Law.. And left the footprints for us to follow.
