Did You Ever Think The Demons Were Bothering You?

    When I was younger I used to have terrible convulsions and hear "voices". My mom was convinced that it must be "the demons". The congregation prayed over me and eventually I went to a doctor that was able to figure out why I was so sickly and presto: everyone's prayers were answered.

    Were the poor demons blamed for something that they obviously had nothin' to do with???

    Yes. Scared to death usually the night following a study about them. Stupid parents!

    Speaking for the demons, it must really bother them to be blamed for so much of the world's problems that people do. Poor little demons!

    My beliefs are if there are demons, then they're has to be a counter- force for such a thing. If there's demons, then there's angels. My mom told me I had a "guardian angel". I like that thought!

    Yes they bothered me but, I realized they were the elders and not demons!

    At some point pretty early on in my JW life, I decided that if I worshipped a god who was incapable of protecting me from ol' Satan and his bad boys, then he wasn't worth worshipping, and from that point on I never worried about demons as a JW.

    And guess what? They never bothered me either!

    And now that I no longer believe in either gods or demons - ALL of 'em leave me alone!

    G'd afternoon Min.

    They never bothered me before.

    Now they look out for me.

    Poor guys are so misunderstood.

    Uh-huh. I bought into the theory that if you weren't bothered by demons, you evidently weren't doing something right.

    Now that I have renewed my acquaintance with Jesus of Nazareth, I don't think about them anymore.



    Not me, but boy......the JW's sure no how to make ya paranoid and think the worse about everything and everyone. Scared and suspicious besides.
