...I heard him use Gods name, Jehovah, many times on his programs (I'm not sure on his books...I havent read any of them).
IMO- I think he's one of the best preachers out there...
If you dont know him , check him out on www.intouch.org
After I parted ways with the JW's, I considered "replacing" them with another form of religion. The only TV preacher that even came close to impressing me favorably was Charles Stanley. I liked the general positiveness of his message. From what I remember, it didn't seem like he adhered to the prosperity theology which is thinly veiled greed.
However I heard Stanley say one day that you've got to follow this certain way, or else there would be a price to pay. It caused a clenching feeling and made me realize that all organized religions have a man (or a group of people) who tell you what their idea of God is, how he should be served, and "you'd better listen or else", etc. I decided that during my first 39 years of life (as a JW) I'd been preached to, and preached to others, much more than a person should have in one lifetime.
I used to like listening to him. He was on a christian radio station in plattsburg.
I think he's pretty good. He interviewed some ex JW's on his show about a year or two ago.
Brymichmom: I did see an interview one time that an ex-jw was on his program. She was channel surfing one night and decided to watch him speak & heard him say "Jehovah" during one of his talks....and right there then she started picking up her bible again.
I made that woman a Jehovahs Witness when she was 18 years old
Her hubby was a JW who committed suicide.
Yes Charles Stanley was telling folks how to be born again.
She said the prayer & is now a Wonderful Christian speaking in Many Churches
Thanks Charlie for rescuing a sheep that I lead astray
I'm glad she still able to preach and talk about God in many churches while she went through all that.
"Thanks Charlie for rescuing a sheep that I lead astray "
Mouthy - Dont put yourself down. Back then you thought it was the "truth". Forgive yourself! May God bless you!
May God bless you!
Thanks Mr Monday....To forgive myself is very hard..
I was a Mother that was hard on my kids ,no sports at school,
No Christmas, Birthdays, Valentines ,you know. Melanie is DEAD!!!
Annmarie is still a JW!!! My Alan is DEAD!!! He was Not a JW & I made
life very hard for him, nagging him to be one...
I do believe Christ forgives BUT!!! I think of how hard I was now I am alone
I was mean to my hubby also, telling him daily how he HAD to become a JEHOVAHS
Witness It was on his death bed he wanted to be one..I was just beginning to doubt then
about 1914....& the fact that I wasnt getting to the hall( looking after my dying hubby)&
nobody was coming to visit ......Where was the love????
Some of his talks are on UCB radio over here.
I like listening to him when I get chance.
I used to watch him in the 90's and read his magazine.
If you choose to be a Christian, he seems to be a good preacher.
