    Yes, there are positives, for example: improved speaking ability, becoming a better reader, discipline, morality and general bible education. Respectfully, The Wanderer

    You have many good friends as long as you stay in and obey.

    It helped me develop my sense of humour and an imagination during those endless, droning convention talks.

    The Witnesses put me in door to door sales training classes when I was 7 years old. Do I know how to sell? Oh yeah! Do I like cold calling? . . . Nope!

    There was one point where I hated it that I was good at selling.

    There is always people around.

    Is that good or bad?



    Wanderer,JW`s are some of the most undicipined,immoral people I have ever met..They really have very little understanding of the bible or the historical times of the bible..Any understanding they do have,has been spoon fed to them by one of the most corrupt organizations on earth,the WBT$..How do I know?..I was raised in that god forsaken cult..You`ve got to set your sights a little higher...OUTLAW

    Ok, that's a fair question. I'm not too proud to say there are benefits. I suppose the biggest benefit I' ve been given from the watchtower is that I probably never would have realized the true nature of God. I used to go to church and was mildly interested. Now it's the only home I've ever known. I have a personal relationship with Jesus and at least I know I'm doing the right thing, and most of all, I know who the enemy is...

    Just so there's no confusion, I've never been a witness, it's my mom who's the dub.

    By the way, last week, after those at the KH heard we are having financal problems, my mom found a 100 dollar bill in her bible with a card from a very generous sister. My mom was so shocked that she couldn't remember who the woman was, even though she had left a name. Now, I will never condem or ridicule her generousioty, but it seems to me, if she were really being Christian, wouldn't she leave the gift anonymously? I don't know her, but didn't Jesus say not to give charity out of pride?

    Did anything like this happen to anybody when they were still a witness? Or did they give a similar gift? Am I totally wrong, or does this seem to have a motive behind it? I welcome any answers, I would really like to know.



    Anitar..People do help one another,from time to time..This one did`nt seem to understand polite ediquete..I would`nt discount the gift or the intentions,unless the giver is making a public display of the gift...OUTLAW
