I am sick of being told this same crap after decades of suffering at the hands of wicked men and women, how many of you have had to fight these irrational expectations we are supposed to grin and smile when people are actively trying to screw with us and Elders say “
“Good it is that one should wait, even silently, for the salvation of Jehovah” (Lamentations 3:26; Titus 2:13)
My life in the Organization has not been entirely bad, there were many good people and plenty of jerks like you all experienced in this adventure we call life. Are there any posters here who have discredited the “You must wait upon Jehovah” or “Put this in Jehovah’s hand" as you endure evil coming from, not Satanic or worldly pressures but attacks, burning missiles from wicked ones in the Congregation. Which Bible scriptures can I use to demonstrate it's wrong to wait while evil is running rampant and they're not doing any good (I understand why many have left the Bible and religion after seeing all the hatred and hypocrisy in religion yet the only way to counter them is using the Bible in this particular case.). We all know the Witnesses will put JW.ORG and the Governing Body's words like the Mormons do when the BOM is found lacking, they discredit the Bible so their men are valid. Many of us are sick and can't continue to face these challenges thrown our way by bad men Peter wrote about who are causing us anxiety, depression stress, stomach problems and they get off by bringing us harm (2 Peter 2:1-5). I know the Elders use their positions and status to downplay our concerns and stress they throw upon us. How do we use the Bible to show it' wrong to wait upon Jehovah when Satan's using these Witnesses to bring pain to us?
2. Reading and watching Perry’s Video on getting through to Jehovah’s Witnesses was interesting, can you help me think of ways to counter arguments to fight that stupid line “Just wait on Jehovah and he will take care of this” because I’ve been dealing with problems from these men and women for decades, not months or years, decades of Jehovah’ People doing bad things to others too. As a kid I viewed the Elders with wrong thinking, I thought by being on the platform or having a title that meant God was using them and I was bad because I had negative thought or even might have committed the “unforgiveable sin” because I said one Elder was “Wicked" because his three stepdaughters accused him of groping them and they later recanted (in 1979 they eventually got put in foster care because the abuse was rampant and I was only 9 trying to get my mother to call the police which she did and she got reproved for doing this).
3. My dear mammy was reproved for not allowing the Elders and Jehovah’s Organization deal with the abuse of these girls and she was warned she would get charged with gossip if she did that sort of thing again. That was in 1979, very little knowledge and poor judgement calls dealig with Pedophiles was not uncommon, even now we see how inept many elders are when dealing with people like Fredrick Maclean, Brother Kendrick and many,many,many more coming through the system now. If Candace COntii waited upon their Jehovah she would be suffering and Kendrick probably would be harming innocent victims, you all were shocked by the response of his wife but that’s how the women of pedophiles often are. She knew he had sexually abused her grandbaby but stay’s for reasons not clear to us all. I think she might have little choice if Kendrick’s is the breadwinner of their family, often good women get stuck with bad men because of financial logistics. She might be waiting upon Jehovah to get her life together or something.
So how would you use the Bible to attack the “Waiting upon Jehovah” BS when wicked Elders are attacking your family’s name and trying to overtly do more? There are scriptures that say:
“6The person who is taught the word should share all his goods with his teacher. 7Stop being deceived; God is not to be ridiculed. A person harvests whatever he plants: 8The person who sows through human means will harvest decay from human means, but the person who sows in the Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit. 9Let’s not get tired of doing what is good, for at the right time we will reap a harvest—if we do not give up. 10So then, whenever we have the opportunity, let’s practice doing good to everyone, especially to the family of faith.
25Do not be afraid of sudden terror or of the destruction of wicked people when it comes.
26The LORD will be your confidence. He will keep your foot from getting caught.
27Do not hold back anything good from those who are entitled to it when you have the power to do so.
28When you have the good thing with you, do not tell your neighbor, "Go away! Come back tomorrow. I'll give you something then."
29Do not plan to do something wrong to your neighbor while he is sitting there with you and suspecting nothing.
30Do not quarrel with a person for no reason if he has not harmed you.
32The devious person is disgusting to the LORD. The LORD's intimate advice is with decent people.
