    That's priceless, Mrs. J.

    I got away with smoking and drinking. Even if dragged to the back room over something else, I never told them about that. I had to do something to keep my sanity.

    let's see: playing touchy feely before marriage with my wife. in fact, we were only a few days from the wedding day when it got really good. before playing touchy feely with wife, had a few long baths since i had no one to play touchy feely with. smoked a cigar at a wedding for a non jw friend. more to drink that should have many times. there are a few other things but i cant give away all my secrets. yet.

    My best friend fooled around, everything but intercourse, a few days before the wedding. They never told, as far as I know. He became an elder and has suffered from mental problems for yeads, sad to say.

    if i didnt get to fool around before the wedding day, i would have suffered more than mental problems for years.

    So it matters whether humans know but not that God who sees all things and has the power of life and death?..........typical jws (and others)

    Of course.......smoked, went to bars drank, X rated movies...hanky-panky with dates...would say I was a typical double life jw...

  • M*A*S*H

    Yes... I used to "think" about one particular elder's wife during many a long dull meeting.

    I 'think' that counts.

    i felt regret for some of the things i did. most of the things i did. but i never felt it needed to be said between me and others. the stuff before i was married with my wife i prayed about and asked god for forgiveness and felt it was all that was needed. i never felt regret for the cigar incident. the drinking too much, i figured i suffered physically and that in turn was my punishment.

    Hah. I never trusted an elder enough to confess a sin. If I sinned, it was between me and my "god."
