Someone called me who is aware of our situation and asked if a friend could call me. The friend has apparently been semi-studying with jw's. I guess some women come about once a month or so but this last meeting has made this person very uncomfortable. I have no idea why or what specifically is the point of disturbance within the 'study'. I only know this person socially through the years and not on a really personal basis. She always seemed somewhat liberal (for US standards) and is an honest, say what you mean kind of person. Honesty is something I remember of her, very to the point. So my question is, should I use the dishonesty in how the wt quotes scholars and others to begin with? or what? I want to tread carefully and thoughtfully. I know there have been many threads on this but this one also involves a marriage with a mate who wants nothing to do with jw's. What would have been the recent 'studies' do you think?
Yeah, I know some of you may be thinking my hardass line on the wt, I shouldn't even be talking to her, however, I am capable in person of being very level headed and not a raving lunatic about the wt. Hard to believe I know. In person it's different, I can rant here and most know this is a place you can vent and someone will understand the reason behind it. In person I usually don't or can't say what I say here.
I was thinking that I might also bring up the fact that Jesus is not the mediator for the r&f, as my husband still does not seem to understand that concept. To me that is one of the most damning things within the jw society and yet my jw doesn't seem to even understand that.
thanks for your thoughts and keeping me from being a raving a lunatic in person. carla
