A friend received it in an email from another JW who borrowed it from here, edited it and sent it to all the JW's (he thought LOL) in his address book:

Not so smart at al

A true witness of Jehovah would say

[1] Kingdom of God is my college

[2]Sacred service is our ministry

[3] Born of spirit and water is our entry

[4]Jehovah's word is our counselor.

[5] Holy Spirit leads us into all truth

[6] Angels minister to us

[7]Scriptures are our inspired syllabus

[8]Temptations and persecutions are our training programs

[9] Overcoming the world is our FAITH..Satan has already been defeated.

[10] Preaching Gods word is an assignment

[11] Salvation is the end of our faith

[12]Public declaration of Christ is for salvation...

Thanks Unchained, for the opportunity to set the matter straight ..Glory to God on high and Peace among men of good-will

Enjoyed these posts but let's get real now. Most Jwswhen talking about their educationalbackground would say, "Because the end is so near I almost finished high school. eventually got me a GED."

Yup, and I have a dead end job with no chances of advancement.
My total lack of "secular" education, make the propaganda of the Watchtower, written at a 3rd grade reading level, seem stimulating

I agree with you, little lamb.

I am very interested in knowing about your ideas regarding Sacred Service.

Can you please explain what a christian does for Sacred Service.

Thank you.

We don't sit around during lunch in the break room making this stuff up.

A bona fide Jehovah's Witness who is in good standing sent out the email.

There ain't no way former JW's could have dreamed that up.

Most of us have have been away from the kingdom hall so long that the JW mindset is totally foreign to our way of thinking.

In two of our most recent awakes. We have the experiences of a robot scientist who came into the truth, as well as a researcher. Both happen to be from Italy.

I suspect that the society will continue to post these experiences.

People come from ALL walks of life to serve Jehovah.

Sadly, unchained's post ismore applicable to those raised as JW's.

People who already have life experience and are educated may become JW's, but it's rare for a born in or raised JW to go that far in secular education. They are raised to believe there is more need to preach than get a life of their own.

INTERVIEW | MASSIMO TISTARELLI

A Designer of Robots Explains His Faith

February 2013 AWKE!

Page 11

In 1990, I spent a few months in Dublin, Ireland, doing research at Trinity College. As I was traveling home with my wife, Barbara, we considered the future of our children. We also decided to visit my sister who was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. My sister gave me a copy of the book Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation? published by the Witnesses.

The careful research that had gone into this work impressed me.

``````````

Would you expect him to say anything critical about Watchtower publications?
__________

Watchtower Society Interviewer:

"Has your study of science weakened your faith?"

Professor TISTARELLI:

"On the contrary, science has strengthened my faith."

``````````

Does this mean that the Governing Body will begin encouraging JW youths to go to universities and study science?

Are you really this slow?

We are not talking about folks who become a JW AFTER THEY EARN THEIR DOCTORATE-

we are talking about the warped mindset that prevents some of your brightest and most talented youth from EVER BECOMING DOCTORS

folks is this guy really this slow?????

Bingo

the poor guy missed the who point of the thread - at least his lack of critical thinking skills and comprehension is on display for all to see

here we are talking about the fact that jw lack education due to running behind the end is too short to go to college and yet at the first chance they want to brag about someone who has an education

only in the last few years have jw youth been going to college in record numbers

as the CO told our BOE, once the society came out and said you could go to college if its to pioneer, everyone started to use that EXCUSE

then after a few years the wt clamped back down

it is amazing to read the wt and actually see how they had a noose around jw families and then LOOSEN IT AND JW WENT RUNNING FOR FREEDOM IN THE area of education and then the wt locked it back down

even now removing elders that that are DEEMED AS TOO PRO EDUCATION

folks when my wife and is speak before groups especially African AMerican groups

they are like WHAT, YOU ARE KIDDING- THEY PUNISH men who responsible roles for encouraging college among their youth

such a concept is foreign to many persons OUTSIDE OF WT
but for jw its business as usual

I found both of their stories to be impressive.(I'm sure so do many others. That is why the society put them there.)

They have both seen and lived. Yet, they both still made the truth their own. I think that is a beautiful thing.

Enjoy your day.

You would be slow too, if your wife just dumped you for another man, a man who can provide for the children, NOT LIKE SSSSTUPID JOSE/TPMP who cleans Toilets and cant hold a job on his own, his INLAWS have to employ him, thats how sorry and Pathetic he is..

Soon he will have to get off his dead a$$ and find his own Job to pay the child support, the poor "SLOB" is so uneducated he cant even provide food for his own children...What a Total soory excuse for a father..

The kids soon will call this new guy "DADDY"....
