The total self-absorbtion is a tip-off, too. If his self-importance is pricked in any way, he goes into search-and-destroy mode, and nobody gets even the tiniest bit of credit for anything. @Arauna is case-in-point and it pains me to see her so abused. She has her point of view, of course, like anyone. Still, Cesar was routinely upvoting her posts. Then she made the mistake of mildly contradicting him on an inconsequential point. Even though she clarified, mollified, partially backtracked,

Do you mean like the proverbs about where there is no fuel, the fire goes out? (Proverbs 20:26) There may be something to that.  Sometimes rage boils over into the actual world. You wouldn’t want to think you were a contributing factor to that. It may not be like how “experts” in the back pocket of video game makers assure us that online violence presents just a harmless substitute for the real thing.  It may be like how those “experts” would never dare say the same thing with reg

I keep trying to tell you; he is a troll

You people are making the Watchtower look more bad, than actual ex-witnesses. 

You forget that behaviour is a big part of our integrity. I merely stood up for someone you were railing against without understanding what it was about.... and I had to watch you go balistic..... Think about your own behaviour.....

People who don't enjoy the door to door and street witnessing are either doing it wrong, or have the wrong attitude.

You’d better be glad this fellow doesn’t do the door to door ministry. We’d be banned, not just in Russia, but in every country in the world.

And unlike in Russia, I would have to say: “Well, they have a pretty good point.”

:) There's a brother I used to do a lot of early morning work with. Let's call him Troy. Troy was quite outspoken, he was also pretty extreme. He was dropping acid and sky diving with a bunch of guys when one of them started to study. That guy eventually dropped, but Troy picked it up and ran with it. Anyway, that's his personality. So I'm taking him on this RV and the guy I'm calling on is a super-catholic and apparently wasn't too happy w/it's take on the church. So Troy butts in and starts trashing the catholic church really hard. The other guy mentioned some priest's name and Troy said "he's probably got some altar boy bent over backwards while we're talking!"

So we got kicked out. Unsurprisingly.

Then Troy looks at me, grins and says "Got any more calls you want to get rid of?"

So we both started saying "Who ya gonna call!" "Call Busters!"

Of course that's not an experience that's likely to be shared on an assembly, but anyway C reminds me of that (except he doesn't appear to have a sense of humor about himself which is always a big fat mistake)

I can read, you people's intention like a book

Only Jesus can read hearts. I agree with you, the company here is not pure but your behavior is also badly flawed in a different  way. you can learn from this,  or not - your choice.

I'm here for a reason, what's your excuse.

I have also exposed bad thinking on this forum but not with fire and brimstone.  I believe at times I was ashamed of my behavior because it came across has harsh or judgmental.  Even Jesus said to Satan...... "May Jehovah rebuke you".  He did not rebuke him himself.

While I agreed with most of what you said, I could not stand by without raising my voice to expose extremely bad behavior. You cannot justify that as an excuse...... sorry your excuses for  the 1 TTm 3: 1-5  behaviour is not christian.   Against the fruitages of the Spirit there is NO LAW.... Gal 5:22.... even when working with enemies. 

I leave now because I do not want to mix with ........... - and this includes you. Your excuses to be on this forum is a false flag.

While you rant about my behavior, you excuse TTH, JWI and everyone else including JTR.

I have not excused any of them BUT I only refer to one occasion when you are unfair and your ranting about it proves that your attitude is wrong. So  bye.

I am qualified to serve God in ANY way he chooses!!....

I will never say "no" to God

Oh no! Not yet another one with a special calling!! This has not so far been revealed. Unusual in real life, they are a dime a dozen online. Maybe that is why the Christian organization isn’t thrilled about going there.

As long as you have revealed yourself as a chosen one, I suggest a fine course might be to tell 4Jah that you are the True Anointed. I wouldn’t mind seeing that one play out. He will go batsh*t crazy. But then, he does anyway.

(sorry—I tried to find a less crude synonym for batsh*t crazy. But everything that popped up on the thesaurus was worse. Sigh...what’s a righteous man to do?)
