Having only been exposed to the wt thinking for a short time, the more I read and learn the more shocked I am that people can follow this stuff blindly. I can not wait to read the Franz books. Thanks all for your information and support!!
'I could easily kill someone' said the P.O.
Thanks for all the posts people....some truly AMAZING experiences, really.
I showed my never-was-a-dub wife a JW children's book. In particular, I showed her the picture of children being destroyed in the big 'A'.
I'll never forget her response: "Is that where you learn to kill your families?"
There's an anger with these people. There is a self-righteousness to go along with it.
I posted the following a few months back...
You all may be shocked thinking this is a disgusting portrayal of good, innocent people meeting dire ends, but you are thinking worldly thoughts. You have to see it from a theocratic point of view. What this is is actually an accurate portrayal of not-so-innocent worldlings receiving their just reward for a lifetime of wickedness. This is perfectly biblical and perfectly fair. Jehovah is just and when the time comes for the vindication of his name, he will act of prosecutor-judge-executioner for all those who choose not to save themselves by becoming identified with His Organization. So let me show you why these people are really not so innocent and are really getting what they deserve:
This is Gladys. She works as a maid and lives in Topeka, Kansas. She is actually in the city to take part in a Maidworkers Union conference (thus she is wearing her worker uniform). There are so many things wrong with this I don't know where to start. First of all, she cleans houses FULL TIME. She doesn't clean houses AND pioneer like God expects all people to be doing. What is worse, she decided to go to the Maidworkers Union conference the very same weekend that all God's people were holding their Divine Vengeance District Convention. If she had only gone to the godly convention and worshipped Jehovah, she would have been fine. But she does not worship Jehovah. She is a worldling. She is only interested in supporting a Union that cares only about money and selfish things like eeking out a living. So it is so obvious that she cannot use up Jehovah's precious oxygen any longer!
This is Larry. He lives in the Big City. He also is not a worshipper of Jehovah, tho he received many chances. One time, a lovely pair of pioneering sisters came to his door while he was running late for work. He did not even have a second to hear about Jehovah's loving warning to him. Another time he did spend about 15 seconds to hear about Jehovah's grand promises. But he said he wasn't interested in "Beets -- The Wonder Vegetable" and articles on "What Should I Do if My Period is Late?" Because he did not heed the warning, he continued his filthy habits. He smokes a pack of Camels a day and for that reason alone, he does not deserve to live. True, by being a heavy cigarette smoker, he already takes up less oxygen than the average person. But by burning those noxious fumes and polluting his own "temple", he is truly someone that is "destroying the earth". And we all know what God will do to those destroying the earth!
This is Diane. Everyone thinks she is a good, hard-working woman. But Jehovah is not pleased with her because she is a Career Woman. She does not put kingdom interests first. She deceives herself by saying that she needs to work so hard for worldly things because she has a son to support and she is a single parent. First of all, she should have never divorced her ex for all that abuse he was giving her. It does not please Jehovah to break his holy union of marriage for something as trivial as that. She should have known that Ricky would not pay child support anyway, but now it is too late and she cannot make up for her mistake. Well, actually she can because Ricky keeps asking her really nicely and sweetly to come back to him, but she is obstinate and refuses. Jehovah does not like obstinate people. So instead of seeking God's kingdom and pioneering full time while letting Ricky pay the bills, she now must fend for herself and work selfishly for her own wants and needs. For that, she has condemned herself.
This is Jane. She is an Apostate. She was misled by her own distorted thinking, her own lies and blasphemies, that caused her to turn her back on Jehovah and his organization. She somehow convinced herself that God does not have an organization and that Armageddon is only a fantasy. Well, that fantasy is now real and she is reaping what she has sown. By letting Satan blind her mind to the salvation that God provides, she has only herself to blame for being shut out of the Ark Organization when God's fury is unleashed on the earth. She is the worst of them all because Apostates try to cause others to fall and become lost. In this case, she has cost the life of her own daughter. By becoming an Apostate, she decided to start giving her daughter birthday parties, Christmas, she let her go out trick and treating, and even let her take part in a school play!!! For such Babylonish practices, not only is Jane guilty as charged, but she has even allowed her own daughter to turn her back on Jehovah as well. For being such a horrible mom, she will be justly punished! And as for her nameless daughter, God does not like children who celebrate birthdays and engage in Satanic trick or treating!
This is Friskie, Jane's cat. Yes, even pets of the Executed will perish as well. In this case, Friskie failed to regularly observe God's law on blood. Each time Friskie caught a rat, lizard, or cockroach, she forgot to pour the blood out to the ground before consuming the flesh. Bad kitty!! Jehovah does not like bad kitties!!
If Osama hijacked the watchtower and took over leadership in brroklin, the liders sure will follow the orders.
The P.O. when asked : who like to go and kill some unbelievers, and we have assingment to cover, to fly a jet into some grredy apartment dwelers, who don't want to listen to us, he will be like the izajah: HERE I am Osama ! SEND ME !
I waited all my life to take my part in armagedon!
