    Do any of you remember or have heard recently the illustration, "imagine yourself working in the sun on a hot day, you're parched, thirsty, you need a drink. Would you drink a glass full of water if it had a drop of poison in it? No matter how thirsty you are, would you? No! That is how the world today is, it may look appealing, it may look clean, but inside of it is death." Well, I'm sure there is some variation to that illustration, but I think you get the point of it or it may ring a bell.

    My point? Well, don't you think that the WBTS is like that glass full of poisoned water? The words, the delivery of their interpretations, everything found in their publications is filled with poison. They turn you into someone not yourself, not human, you're taught to shun family members, elders hide pedophiles in the congregation, teach you to be holier than thou, self-righteous, they even go as far as idolatry of the GB. I mean they basicly tell you to follow our instructions that we've made up or you're disfellowshipped.

    Just a thought I've been having lately that has been bugging me. The talk given this past Sunday made me want to jump up and down and scream BULLSHIT! The WBTS has more than a drop of poison in their kool-aid me thinks.

    Your thoughts on this illustration?

    I like your analogy better than WT's.

    Not all poisons would be lethal with only one drop in a 8 ounce glass of water.

    True Blondie, I guess I meant to say that the glass of water that the WBTS is giving out is filled with poison with a drop of water.


    The WBT$ is full of Crap..

    Would you drink a glass of water,with only a little bit of WBT$ Poop in it?..

    I think it's foreshadowing. WTBCS likes to poison the well, rhetorically speaking.
