Hi Terry, I read what you wrote on "My Life in Jehovah's Service"
I feel for you. You seem like a good person that went through a lot of bad stuff. All I can tell you is, remember Judas? He was one of the 12 apostels of Jesus. Like Jesus apostels, the watchtower may have a few judasis in there. What you did was for Jehovah,and Jehovah has not forgotten what you did in service all those years. You have learned your lesson not to put your trust in men "watchtower society", but put your trust in Jehovah, if you believe he exists. There are many Judasis in the Watchtower, but that is no reason to abandon God. Nobody knows when the end will come, not even Jesus! How can the Watchtower predict such things? You have a choice. The watchtower is there to help us understand the bible better and that's it. Anything else they say does not come from Jehovah! Who can be compared to Jehovah? Jehovah is love, Jehovah does not wish anyone to die, many who are not Jehovahs witnesses will survive the end and many who are Jehovahs witneeses will not because they are wicked in their hearts. Goodbye Terri, and remember, the choice is yours.
Hi There Mikel,
Thanks for taking the time to write to me. I appreciate your point of view and that it is deeply felt.
I'd only say this to you. The whole point in Jesus returning to rule over his own hand-picked righteous government is to demonstrate the superiority of God's rule over man's. Does it make sense that Jesus would have people running his earthly government (as faithful and discreet choices) who constantly run ahead of the messege and heap shame upon his father's name by holding him up to ridicule?
(Prophecy that doesn't happen and doctrinal confusions)
The brothers and sisters who remained in the Kingdom Halls since 1975 have seen how the organization has tightened up CONTROL. They are in a defenseive control mode and a crackdown has continued because of the internet's ability to expose all the shameful lies, errors, misrepresentations and backpeddling that have been wrought in the name of Jehovah.
Jesus could easily set matters straight IF he were dealing with THIS group (JW's) of human representatives. But, it is obvious that the mismanagement of the Watchtower philosophy just drags on and on and on without end. These people choke on the chicken bone of their own errors. (Jesus has nothing to do with them.)
There is little difference between the kind of stranglehold the administration of the Watchtower Society has and that of the Catholic Church. They even handle the issue of lawsuits over blood and child molestation the same with with a bunker mentality and counter-attacks.
This organization does not represent the best Jesus can do and certainly is a laughing stock when it comes to showing the world what Jehovah's character or plan or administration is all about.
You'd do well to detach your loyalty from people who have constantly demonstrated their ideology of error and self-defenseive propaganda and become aware that you do not serve god by defending them.
Thanks for you concern,
