so....i’m going to rewind for a second.
one of my brother-in-laws came over one evening late in 2016, november i think, just to hang out.
we hadn’t seen him in a while and this is before we told anyone in his family we were out.

another mind-numbing edition with instructions on how adult jw's should be conducting themselves as "christians.
i did like this paragraph though - after some reading between the lines:.
page 11, par.

the department for work and pensions has acknowledged that some universal credit claimants struggle to pay for the amount of ink which their printers use when completing lengthy dwp forms.. as such, these claimants can now apply for ink capacity benefit!

have begun to update my will.. for some who have very severe divisions in family it would be a good idea to avoid orgs or undesirable relatives claiming part of your estate and more to the point making sure it goes to what or who you wish it too.. live long and prosper in wisdom..

i was talking to a friend who is an elder in a congregation near belfast city over in northern ireland.
he was telling me that several of the sisters wanted to put fresh flowers in the hall on a weekly basis just to pretty the place up.
he said "sure, why not, it's a great idea, and the congregation will reimburse the costs as long as they aren't too expensive.

The Cosmos an orderly created universe by a God ? or is it a chaotic universe without order or arrangement by any God ?by smiddy3 in
or is the universe just following the natural laws of physics etc,etc.. i remember when i was "in" talks and books by the society highlighted the order of the universe went like clockwork ,sun ,moon and stars all in their relative positions and not one out of their place .. however the advancement in science of the universe / astronomy shows a much more different picture that demonstrates a more chaotic realism of what actually goes on out their in this vast universe .. black holes , which can merge together , galaxies colliding and merging together , large meteors ,some of which have crashed here on earth ,supernovas ,stars being born and stars in their death throes .. just some of the things off the top of my head ,apparently their are many more.. i look forward to comments and some good book to read on the subject..

we all know about the variation in the "cult persona vs the "real persona" of those in high control groups such as jws.. it struck me this becomes even more pronounced and apparent when jws actually put on their physical meeting or service attire, or are engaged in jw activities.
they become more robotic as their responses and actions - yes their opinions and discussions- are stripped of humanity and thought, and they become turned into some sort of regurgitating jw orator.. when they literally put on a suit or tie, the level of judgement, arrogance and black and white thinking takes on a whole new level.
take that clothing off, and put them in casual attire to attend some sort of enjoyable activity (eg sports watching or the like) and they become far more relaxed, and "normal".. i have noticed this particularly with my father.

in the december 2018 jw broadcasting episode, jehovah's witnesses are told to put faith in the faithful and discreet slave(once again), have admiration for angels, expect a gradual future resurrection, consider jesus in his preexisting life and how he learned from god to exercise love.
