Sorry, folks, I must do it…
Yesterday, I got hurt in my heart, and my stomach-ulcus' almost exploded, when I read as follows:
You Know wrote:
By far, though, the most spiritually dangerous type of apostate are those who lurk among Jehovah's Witnesses falsely posing as loyal brothers and sisters. There are many on this board who do just that. It is the lowest sort of slithering betrayal for such false brothers to associate with Jehovah's people, shaking hands and smiling, all the while hating everything about us and secretly plotting with our enemies against us. The apostle Paul made mention of the dangers of false brother and false apostles in his day.
Further YK wrote:
You have no back-up from the WTBTS to do this, so why?
Sure I do. They have issued numerous warnings about apostates on the Internet posing as brothers.
YK: What type of "falsely posing JW's on this board" did you mean ??
There are only 2% JW's in this forum who are neither df'd nor da'd nor INACTIVE JW's. I have got the feeling to belong to this very small group.
So, when I read that stuff, I felt concerned thereof. You do consider me to be an apostate of the lowest sort. A Judas Iscariot, a betrayer. That's no question at all. Because I'm almost the only one in this forum who has enough courage - as an active JW - to brand all failures and weaknesses which happens in our organization.
Since a depressed brother (and friend of mine) died through suicide long time ago, me and my wife are doing our best in our congregation to help brothers and sisters suffering under deep depressions. Of course, me and my wife don't write down many preaching hours. You cannot take care for the welfare of your brother, and write down simultaneously many preaching hours. That's quite impossible.
I exactly know what sickness a depressive person is feeling. Many elders in congregations do not feel this pain - at least - not yet. Me and my wife began to suffer 15 years ago, and after many, many backstrikes, we feel better now. Do you allow me to tell the actual base for deep depressions and suicides within the congos?
The reason are people like YOU KNOW. Elders and higher functionaries in the organization having the same characters and attitudes as YOU KNOW. With fundamentalistic claims on themselves. They feel that they have found the ABSOLUTE wisdom and the ABSOLUTE truth. They feel that they were given the ABSOLUTE knowledge about bible's prophecy. They feel that they were given ABSOLUTE permission to proclaim what is ABSOLUTELY the right; and they that they were given the ABSOLUTE correct standard of true belief and the ABSOLUTE and ultimate facts about the world-situation. YOU KNOW: Read your own statements and predictions and bets you made about worldly proceedings, and then you will see how screwed your own opinions are - as well as regarding that, what the bible tells us about the "end of system"; and as well as regarding that, what happens in reality day by day...
I can imagine the mode how you do a talk in your congo; and how you are going to speak unconsidered words (as quoted above) to young and sensitive brothers or sisters. Many inexperienced brothers and sisters become discouraged and despaired. They do not know anything. They are going to ask themselves: "Is this me, whom he has just meant ? Or is this the brother sitting next to me? Or is it the brother who is not present at the meeting today? Is this brother, who is not present today, sick or even weak? Or - oh shock! - did he possibly get df'd meanwhile since his last presence one month ago? Questions, questions...
That type of treating young brothers and sisters with anxiety is not what Jesus Christ would have been preferring long time ago. I am sure: NO, NEVER !!!! This type of hidden talking to an " presumed invisible opponent" is unfair and cowardly. Such a sort of talking has been invented during Hitler, Stalin, or Mao Tse Tung, to accuse "invisible" opponents via radio. Such a type of RF-talking has been invented to the purpose that they are feeling themselves insecurely, guilty and impeached, uninterrupted, all the time, during all days and nights. Mostly they had not the mental strength to stand the pressure and mobbing, and finally, they ended in psychiatric clinics or suicide. In such a manner there was no need to deliver them into a prison anymore...
No, YOU KNOW, such a sort of New Order that you obviously proclaim to come, is not that type of world system I desire. Sorry. I am not happy with the vision to live billions of years in a system, which is obviously installed by SATAN, and NOT by the almighty and righteous God YHVH/JHWH and his son Jesus Christ....
Nevertheless, I hope for the self-cleaning-ability of our organization. This will done by the will of the Almighty God. But until this cleaning-process get finished, you have no right to accuse anyone of the forum-members in being an "apostate". Further, nobody has the right to allege that the Internet is "Satans instrument to accuse Jehovahs organization". No. Please read the bible carefully. As long as there are suicides, or terrible occurrences (see "scully" or "flower" or "mommy dark" etc.), you rather should consider the JW-pages as "lovely provision of Jehovah" to "put the things right".
