one comment made by the speaker was " people think they are happy because they are satisfied. but look at a smoker, he is satisfied and yet noone would say they were happy as a smoker". i looked at him and asked why they would use an analogy that contained a deadly habit as a way to get you to visualize happiness? why not use a person who likes food,thier work, education, as the subject? wouldnt get the message i guess especially when directed to nonbelievers who would find those accomplishments satisfying and contribute to happiness.
it seems the slave is telling elders the flock may be content, satisfied, even a little lethargic but never happy! (straight from the school) Thought JWs were the happy people?
