    ...I'm listening to a talk by a GB member and I'm steaming angry!!!

    I want to run to New York and punch this guy! UGH!

    The way the audience is laughing at the way the brother is saying that everyone is going to fry like hot dogs on a stick is truly disgusting.

    You are right, you do need to stop listening to that crap.

  • Joliette

    Well...yeah. I've been listening cause I'm trying to confirm some things.

    ...and trust me, I'm officially living in apostate land.

    I just get into debates with my parents, and I'm trying to listen to confirm some things that I knew I heard.

  • Joliette

    Yeah its complete and utter crap.

    The brother is saying that you can't be 'just a good person' and survive the big A.

    This is truly sick.

    I am and I will OTWO.

    Truly poision, and five years ago, I would have thought this was good spirtual food.

    UGH... I can't stand listening to anything remotely JW. Years ago, my parents tried to get me and my then-husband to listen to Ciro Aulicino's famous talk... I got about 5 minutes into it and I was completely pissed off! I couldn't believe the crap I was hearing, and I was an active dub at the time! It didn't sit well with me at all. I asked them to turn it off after 10 minutes and they offered to make me a copy. I kept refusing and they wanted to know WHY. So, I made some lame-ass excuse about not knowing the source of the talk and if it was REALLY a brother giving it because it sounded very judgmental and "fire and brimstone". I said I would not "jeopardize my spirituality" by listening to something that cannot be coroborated, IMO. It was a CD that they got from a friend, who got it from a friend, and so on.

    In reality, I couldn't listen to any more of that tripe and didn't want my uber-dub husband to obtain a copy in order to pound it into my head day after day.

    I understand you are trying to make some points with your parents, and I haven't read your backgroud, but I admire you for the strength you have and the fact that you are willing to get yourself all worked up in order to prove something to them. I myself came to the realization that my parents are happy being blind. My mother in particular.

    ^Yeah, I heard that Ciro talk, and that talks was terrible. I coultnt believe what I was hearing.

    Everybody is gonna die! But its okay, cause we wont! (Laughter). Just terrible.

    MP3 players are for playing Satan's music!
