Are Jehovah's witnesses a Happy People?

At least you didn't have to knocking on doors and attending 5 boring meetings every week...  (6 hrs ago | post #9)

Are Jehovah's witnesses a Happy People?

I recall my JW momma banging her fists on the table yelling I am happy when I said that being a JW doesn't bring happiness. Shortly before she died at age 88 she said that she hadn't expected to still be here at her age.  (Yesterday | post #4)

Oh sure, they can switch on those ghastly fake Kingdom smiles for the benefit of onlookers. But see them when they think they're unobserved and they're as miserable as sin. Because they're not happy at all.  (Yesterday | post #1)

You're obviously very finicky. There is virtually no food that I dislike, probably because in my childhood all food was rationed, it being the early 50's and the war barely over.  (Sunday Jul 24 | post #125)

Maybe not..anyway you can't beat dipping your black pudding into a runny egg. Especially with Marmite on toast.  (Sunday Jul 17 | post #76)

I would only cook it if it was guaranteed to be accompanied by HP sauce.  (Sunday Jul 17 | post #74)

UK's new PM

Theresa May confirmed as the UK's next Prime Minister. She takes over as from this Wednesday. She's also confirmed that the win for the Brexit contingent is a done deal and that there's no going back. We're leaving the EU. It's done and that's that. https://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=4x_H 43GOPzI  (Monday Jul 11 | post #1)

Brexit voted out of EU, Globalist Must Crease Control of ...

We had a Brexit because the government didn't listen to the concerns of the people. Or if they had listened at all, they'd done little to solve the problems. Whether those concerns were valid or not was not the issue. Those concerns were never dealt with, other than a glib PM paying lip service occasionally. People felt that they were being micromanaged by the EU in too many sections of their lives. They also felt that the country's infrastructure was breaking down because of the surge in population due to it's open borders. They felt too that their national identity was being eroded, although that wasn't such a big deal to the younger voters. They didn't feel that their concerns were being taken seriously and could see no end in sight. So finally they lost patience and walked. Maybe they were right to walk. Maybe, if they'd been genuinely listened to and reassured, they might have stayed. Or just maybe the EU has become so intractable and beaurocratic that there really was no other choice.

Which leads us to the obvious conclusion that same-sex marriage isn't marriage at all, it's just a legalising of a relationship.  (Jun 6, 2016 | post #3024)

Is The EU Referendum verboten for JW's?

Same-sex marriage has already been legalised in the UK. Cynics believe that this occurred only to garner the pink vote, the Civil Partnership act had already given same-sex couples legal status many years before.  (Jun 4, 2016 | post #13)

Is The EU Referendum verboten for JW's?

Simple. We regain our sovereignty and control our own borders. Then we trade with the rest of the world and not as the EU dictates.  (Jun 3, 2016 | post #7)

Is The EU Referendum verboten for JW's?

Will JW's be allowed to partake in the EU referendum on June 23rd? It's not voting for a person or a political party - just expressing a preference for whether or not the UK should secede from the Union.  (Jun 2, 2016 | post #1)

Good Afternoon Jehovah

WT 15 March, 86: >>When individuals have the opportunity to speak to kings or rulers of this world, they usually do so respectfully and with dignity, highly appreciating the privilege. Should we be less respectful and appreciative when speaking to "the living God and the King to time indefinite"? (Jeremiah 10:10) Of course not. Thus, such expressions as, "Good afternoon, Jehovah" or, "We want to talk to you, Jehovah" are out of place in prayer, as are conversational remarks such as, "How are you today?" "Give our love to Jesus," or, "Have a nice day."¬óCompare Ecclesiastes 5:1, 2. << But then, the WT of June 1, 85 had previously stated: in their Questions From Readers: ¬∑ >>Are there things that we should avoid saying when we pray to Jehovah? Yes, there are. We should avoid saying things in our prayers that sound overly familiar and suggest to others (in public prayers) that we are being disrespectful. Such expressions as "Good afternoon, Jehovah" and "Give our love to Jesus" are not fitting, nor are humorous comments or even jokes in our prayers.<< (hi Jehovah, did you hear the one about......) Even back in 1980, the WT had begun it's campaign of avoiding too much familiarity with Jehovah: >>How thoughtlessly inappropriate to begin a prayer with an expression such as, "Good afternoon, Jehovah!" We can come with freeness of speech because of our faith and confidence in His willingness to hear and because of our being integrity-keepers. But we should do so with deep respect, with reverence.<< I just thought that you might find this of some interest. I shall now look up Good night, Jehovah, Good morning, Jehovah and hasta la vista Jehovah.  (May 30, 2016 | post #1)
