They are all backstabbers, here—the GB, the COs, the elders, the MSs, the.....really, everybody but me.
But it doesn’t bother me. When I see them sneaking up behind my back to do this (which is always) I have learned to whirl around and take them out with a kick to the head like Chuck Norris.
If you drive a car on the road and you follow the road rules..... you do not encounter a problem and you do not feel as though you are under law.... BUT break the rules such as going over a solid white line ..... one stands a chance of killing your own family or another in an oncoming car..... or the police may catch you.... So you are only under law when you break the law. ..... When you keep/observe the law you are safe and free..... So there is only police control when you break the law or the law of disaster steps in because of risk behaviour.....
So the org has no control.... your own behaviour puts you at risk....... but irresponsible people with risk behaviour see it as encroachment on their freedom.
Yes, Anna. I found, how it is unreasonable, out of common sense, not to have normal conversation of two human, or at least, as minimum to say, Hallo. Sometimes it would depend on in what relations they were before, of course.
When you mentioned, Christians 24/7, i suppose how that would include to "love the enemy" as Jesus said. If some JW member want to "love his enemy" in Jesus' context of teaching, i guess how dfd or dis member are not consider to be worst than "the enemy, men from nation" ?! :)) Or is he/she?
If we go so far in conclusions about some bro/sis, perhaps it will be good to remind self how sort of "final judgement" for all of us will be in some future time, i guess, and not now. And process subject in that "judgement" will not be because we belonged or not belonged to particular religion, now, but because of some other issues.
Below is quote from WT publication what JW believes it is Judgmental Day.
(Judgment Day will be not only a time of instruction from God but also a time for those alive to apply what they learn and enjoy the blessings that result.) - https://www.jw.org/en/library/magazines/g201001/what-is-judgment-day/.
I did not know you have the professional qualification to determine my intelligence? ... as to your opinions..... they do tell a lot about you.
Now this is also a fallacy - so I do not think I will waste my time to correct your thinking about whom I worship. Think what you will. You have a right to a silly opinion.
I think even when we are baptized, the watchtower elders or CO has no power over anyone, the power they think they have is because we give them that power, is not like we have signed a contract or anything.
@Arauna And you have a blanket belief in your GB which you worship and the JW Org which you serve .
You are soooooooo blind to the real truth that you have to pretend to yourself that anything spoken against the GB and its Org, is because of hate. You are not intelligent enough to comprehend real truth.
You do not even reason with anyone. In case you forget what you have written :-
Quote "What I do NOT understand is the logic of the men who hate JWs. "
Then also quote :-
"They try to prove that we are impure and allow homeosexuality (when we clearly do not) "
Um, maybe try adding this bit to another topic on this forum which speaks about past GB members being Homosexual.
The GB NEED children to get baptised to try to keep them in the JW Org. Once baptised the threats start to kick in.
We know that lots of people are LEAVING the JW Org, so GB are trying to keep the numbers up.
A person can still be a 'publisher' on the ministry whilst not baptised, so why would anyone want to push their children into doing something that they are not able to comprehend ?
Obvious answer, it's because the threats kick in when baptised. The Org has control over a baptised person. The 'rules' can only be pushed on someone that is baptised. The Elders can be pushy about baptised ones doing more hours in the ministry. Pushy about the way a person dresses. Pushy about association with non believers. But the Elders have no say on what an unbaptised person does, even though they might try.
