Don't understand a WT teaching? It's probably not important anyway:

    From August 1, 1980 WT:

    . Is some point we have trouble in understanding really important? Does it affect the truly important things we have learned with the help of the "slave" class? Is it worth stumbling ourselves and perhaps others? Does it prevent us from bearing Christian fruitage?

    I had a JW tell me that 1914 is just not that important.

    I fear that the poor bugger will never be stumbled.

    According to Dubs no. Here is they key I tried to share with a witness friend last week. She said How 'we dont serve men and that the light gets brighter.' I pointed out to her that since we dont serve men why do you put so much emphasis on following a man made group.

    As far as the light getting brighter thing, I said how can you go out and convert or try and persuade others to your belief, when there are still loopholes and discrepensies? She said she will look into them for herself but I doubt it.

    That is hilarious. Typical double-speak. If you don't understand it , don't worry about it, the society has it all figured out for you!!!

    Ok so that makes about as much sense as a husband saying to his wife.

    I know you don't understand why I cheated on you. But that isn't important. Just know that I love you.

    Great quote er70...

    Take the blood issue.. if someone you loved died from not taking blood or pre-2001 not accepting a previously prohibited blood fraction, then 'don't worry about it... What the slave has taught you is much more important than your silly little dead loved one...'

    Yeah, right...

    Something you don't agree with? Hang on - new light is on the way!

    "I don't care what I said - do what I say now!"

    How can anything they say be taken seriously? What credibility could they possibly have?

    Oh, yeah...the only thing to learn is to follow their authority...that's all you need.

    No thinking back there!

    I had the elders tell me that some of the issues I had doubts about were not important, and why would I let such minor issues spoil my service to Jehovah, yadda yadda...

    But if they would disfellowship me for disagreeing with the organization's teachings on these "minor" issues, that makes them matters of life and death, doesn't it?

    Don't sweat the petty stuff...and it's all petty stuff...
