    The "Friends"

    "Some of the friends are coming over later, for some upbuilding association."

  • CountryGuy

    I hate when they call other JWs "The Friends" for two reasons:
    1) Quakers were doing this way before JWs.
    2) It's just such a blatent mind control tactic. No one outside of the JWs can be your "friend," so you have to stay.

    "leave it in Jehovers hands" subterfuge whenever the flunkyhacks blunder and ruin another life

  • tetrapod.sapien

    "in the beginning"

    and i was thinking today, that the only time i was ever called "brother", outside of the formalism of meetings, was when either someone was trying to make me feel guilty for something, or they were hitting me up for a favor.

    oh, lets not forget "bad association"

    like us apostates, LOL

    "keep your eyes on the prize"

    "unbelieving mate"

    "great tribulation"

  • gaybeat

    We Must not Forsake the gathering blahblahblah.

    I got this alot, and then he would look to me everytime when he was on the platform saying this. Then a murderous thought came in my head.

    It was mentioned before but - "encouraging" is the one I hate. I have heard "that was so encourging" about 1 million times in my life. I can't remember after a meeting my mom every not saying something was encouraging, or somebody after I gave a talk or something tell me how encouraging it was. Oh God, that word fills my nightmares. hahahaha - Jonathan
