As Ex JWs are we "All or Nothing"?

    As Ex Jehovahs Witnesses, do you think we apply the "all or nothing" rule to non-jw things? Do you remember the Scriptures cited in Revelation regarding being "luke-warm" and being "spewed out of"..Jehovahs mouth? I realised recently that I do actually view things as "all or nothing". If its not 100% "worth it" - whatever that means - then I'm not *that* committed. What do you think? Sirona

    Maybe. In some ways.

    Religiously---I'm pooped out. No interest in anything.

    Is a blank post "All or Nothing"? Could be all. Could be nothing. Could be both....Most profound

    I will wait for elaboration before responding to the title question, however.

    Hi, Sirona!


  • xjwms

    I'm with minimus on this one

    Religiously.....well done.

    And there it is, all filled in...just like magic.

    Hmmm...I'm not sure. All or nothing in some areas, I suppose. Not so much in others.

    I've been an all or nothing person all my life, long before I ever was a JW. It has not been a good thing in my life. How do you change something like that?

    I was 100% for the wts when I was a jw, and look where it got me.

    I am a little more cautious about some things I consider getting involved in now, but if they stand up to careful examination, I still give them my best shot.

    Well if i was God (and i'm not, can i just clarify that along with the Eclipse revelation from the WBT) the thing that would make me sick the most is the WBT. They just twist everything in the book and add lies.

    Lukewarm? These are crawling with bacteria.

    I'm definitely lukewarm about almost everything. It's just my personality.
