    Thanks Darthweef,,same old same old obviously.

    side note::: also, I see they do baptisms at SADs and CAs,,just wondering why on a news report, the article states that baptisms opportunity is 'twice a year' versus 3xs a yr? http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/news/2012/jul/07/jehovahs-witness-convention-held-in-duluth/ Designed for the entire family, the weekend is devoted to spiritual teachings and is one of only two opportunities a year for congregants to be baptised. ???

    Wow. They're not even TRYING to hide it.

    Do they pass the kool aid out before or after the last song?

    Aren`t these programs based on material that was presented in assemblys/ conventions 50 years ago ?

    Where's Jesus in all this? It's always the same...always about the organisation and strengthening your membership in it.

    SMIDDY/3RDGEN - so you think this is a rehash of 50-year-old material? I was kind of stunned how culty/mind controll-y it was - seems pretty desperate.

    Unless I'm just way wore sensitive than I used to be. . .

    On a mind-control level from 1-10, 10 being the highest, I place both programs at 11.

    Do you get any sense that even one act of worship is likely to take place on any one these 3 days?

    Going against nature, as usual. No wonder it is so hard to remain on this path.

    I would rather feed at the Table of Demons. No going against human nature there. No having to make drastic changes. No having to waste my life preaching to others door to door, or having tons of stupid rules. In fact, stupidity is just about the only sin at the Table of Demons. Stupidity is the only thing allowed at the table of Jehovah, and I would rather have stupidity (the deliberate kind, where you disregard research or things you reasonably should know) be banned rather than human nature.

    Insight on the News - Trendy Sermonizing

    What about today? “The sermons now seem to give people what they want instead of giving them what they ought to be saying,” Wentz says. Today’s sermons are short, averaging 10 to 20 minutes, are usually in the form of stories with “cutesy characters” and are meant to entertain. Most people want something to “titillate their feelings and emotions,” he adds.

    1. How can we avoid thinking ‘man’s thoughts’?

    Quit going to meetings

    circuit assemblies

    special assembly days

    district/international conventions

    field service

    Stop reading WTS publications

    Don't discuss "theocratic" topics with jws or anyone

    I like the title of this thread and think it would be great if one day they really had a talk entitled "Safeguard your Mind Control" lol

    It has been seven years since I last went to a CA, DA or SAD. I see I haven't missed out on anything good or useful. To the contrary, I've spared myself much mental and emotional abuse!

    mind and conscience?

    more about not stumbling others, and snitching on others.

    more about not thinking about the GB 24/7

    more about not walking without thinking about the GB!

    more more more more

    I think their mind is gonna short circuit

    "Clean from the blood of all men - how so?"

    like MANY of the JW literature titles, it can be read as a brainless question or an EDUCATED ACCUSATION.

    how so... this expression is a mind control trigger. this is the JDUB gears turning. you don't get to think or answer, the publication will answer the question for you.
