Just found out that at the recent one day assembly they are now REALLY discouraging people from getting married!!!!! Can you believe it????? They will lose young ones like crazy if they start telling them that they cannot get married...what are these sexually frusterated young people to do?? You cannot masterbate, you cannot have sex outside of marriage (not that I would encourage it either, but...), now you cannot even get married????? What the heck are they supposed to do??? As a parent to a almost 16 year old I feel so sorry for these kids!!!
They are still REALLY harpinmg on no education...saying, "We are SO........close to the end..."(What is new about that statement?? I was supposed to be a "new system" baby...now I am 43 years old!!) Then they used a elderly 70 year old man who said that when he was young he was discouraged from going to college because the end was SO CLOSE...they said..."if it was close then..IMAGINE how close it must be NOW?????"
Also..they are now saying NOT to record any of the talks from the assemblies!!! They went on and on about how if you want to listen to a talk from a convention you must go to the official JW website and download it from there!! They said that "Spiritual foodeeds to come from the PROPER PLACE!!"
I thought the food from the assemblies WAS food from the "proper place'???? OH BROTHER, what a stinkin JOKE!!!! Talk about damage control!!!! They are obviously having issues with ones recording and passing on comments in talks that are damaging to them..LOL!!! Gotta pull in the reigns somehow!!
Absolutley AMAZING!! I can only IMAGINE what kind of crap they are going to dish out at the District Assemblies this summer!! Anyone else been to the recent one dayer?? Did you glean any other new "spiritaul light??
but always Sincere,
