The more I listen the more I see that you still speaking all the same things.Jace wrote:
***I would make the point that while the preaching work is important as we BRING NEW ONES IN THRU THE FRONT DOOR TO SERVE JW, never do we want to fail to see our brother or sister sitting right BESIDE US IS FALLING OUT THE BACK DOOR
we can become so concern about founding new ones, we fail to help the ones who are already here trying to serve God
man do you know i had two jackass elders ask me after the talk ARE YOU ADVOCATING NOT PREACHING-
I was like YOU FOOL!!!!!!! DIDN'T you hear what i said, we have to balance the ministry with helpiing our own bro in the faith
but the wt is so Geared towards SELL MORE SELL MORE, sorta like the car dealer who sells cars with all kinds of Fancey ads , bells and whistles------but has a Piss Poor Service dept when you need to get your car fixed***
Perhaps this explanation will help those who sneer at the older ones who have been IN the WTS 30 or more years and look down their noses saying what took you so long to figure it out?
I have seen a lot of that haughty attitude here, like "you must be really stupid if it took you so many years to decide to walk away" but what they DON'T REALIZE is that we ignored all the obvious red flags and buried all the hurtful things we saw and experienced while we were being pushed aside for the healthier and more USEFUL FOR THE WTS SERVICES.
Between being around long enough to see how many doctrinal changes had been made and extra added "requirements" that Jehovah wanted placed on our shoulders... no matter how much we tried to pretend these things were not happening....they were.
How many decades of mistakes and how many years of doctrinal changes does it take for one to KNOW the WTS is not the "truth" and never was?
You have Bible which is good example of what not to do but still everything stay the same. Same one story when you were JW, same story when you are not.
That's mean you never have a spiritual life, you don't see picture clean and you waist your time before and after.
In Jesus time people were spiritual blind, now most are also insane.
May I ask you a question - do you preach a good new ? Or did you stop ? You dedicated yourself to Jehovah and if you stop then it is mean you never preach it. You just been part of religion society which make you disappointed. You've been doing things just because you've been told to do not something that you believe. Jesus was doing Jehovah's will even alone.
Because if your believes based on Holly Spirit, personal relationship with Almighty one nobody could take it from you.
It is like parents when you grow up and learn to do more things you not idolizing your parents anymore. You just gratful for some right knowledge and experience that's it.
Because all you personal words,preaching work,connection with brothers & sisters - it is all lie.
You full of lie and now you even could think - did you ever beeing a christians.
So now you blame society - but you never read and meditate over the scriptures personaly. But it should be your personal decision, nobody could love God but you. You can't buy grace of God or borrow it from somebody else
