I am new here. I was just reading some of these advice posts to Martini's Problem. And Someone said that, "Field Service, Pioneering and the Meetings is what the faith has been reduced to" If thats really the case, explain how. How was it better before.
I am a Bible Student, and I do attend the meetings regularly and I enjoy them and have always felt inspired. Someone said something about someone giving a talk about "cultivating a love and personal relationship with Jehovah" I agree, not much of the type of content in the talks, but I find with the lady I am studying with and all the other friends I have made in my congregation, this is where I am getting my encouragement to cultivate a love for Jehovah, and develope a relationship with him. I get all that outside of the meetings. But I agree, it is long due for a talk about that.
So with that said I have a question for everyone. What do you all think about, doing this here? Communicating online, I mean I understand that you have to be careful of apostasy when you go online, but I don't think its wrong to make friends online, or to even date online as long as your careful, or maybe thats just the worldly part of me reasoning this, all I am saying is, although I am reading stuff on here pertaining to personal issues, I don't beleive its "apostasy" or "going against the organization" I think it is wonderful to have something like this to come together and upbuild on another.
I know that is I mentioned this site to anyone, they would likely say, it is not an official site promoted by Jehovah's Witness's. Has anyone been on jwmatch.com? I am told it is also not an officail dating site for JW, because the organization does not promote dating that way.
Anyways, I digress, I am completly changing topic here, I am just excited and can't wait to make some new friends.
