hi. i was just wondering what constitutes as being brought up in the truth. my mom was baptized when i was 7 and my dad got dunked when i was 11. Right now i don't really consider myself as being fully raised in the truth because even though i've been going to meetings since i was 6 i just slept/doodled through them. my mom didn't study with us kids and my dad didn't start the family study until i was 12. i'm turning 20 in a few weeks..
I've known life before the truth and it was much bettter, everyone was soo much happier. although they secretly deny this.
My reason for this post is that my dad firmly states that i was raised in the truth and he doesn't understand why i won't get baptized. I however don't think i was really raised in the truth because i was brought into the truth as a result of them getting baptized.
On a side note..isn't this creepy..i was out on service unfortunately last week and i was working with my bookstudy overseer (mostly just a counsel session/why aren't you commenting/getting baptised/ university is bad for you). Anyways he's in his early 60's and he started talking to me about the immorality of the world and how satan makes it such an easy trap to fall into because it's so pleasurable..and he keeps going on about how fornication is at first soo enjoyable b/c god made us to enjoy sex and on and on about it..i think he thinks i've done somthing..but i havent!! i felt so sick and uneasy because who talks to a 19 year old girl like this??? alone in a car
the wholetime i was staring at the dashboard ready to run out of the car..
