I always thought the world is rather good overall.
I agree. In the western world (minus this recession) our lives are pretty good.
She said this was all spreading all over the world and when I asked were else she couldn't tell me!
My inlaws always talk like that. I think it's standard dubbie speak... They look so old for their age. Really haggard and worn out, they are wishing their lives away waiting for the big A.
SA drops head down and repeatedly bangs forehead on keyboard...
LOL Shel this made me laugh! (The greatest love and peace to you) I don't think my FIL will say anything to me in a while...Carrot couldn't believe he actually had the gall to come out and say it. Carrot has been VERY firm that NOTHING related to the WT is to be mentioned to any of us. Babysprout ended up in therapy because my FIL took her in the kitchen while my MIL kept Carrot talking (I wasn't there) and got out the Bible book of stories. He started talking about Jehovah and armageddon. Of course this bought back memories of hearing this at meetings and she was having violent nightmares that jehovah was going to kill her. Carrot flipped at his parents and they have behaved. She is not left unattended with them and she has said that if they want to start talking about jehovah, she will start talking about JAH of ARMIES and His Son Jaheshua. I pity them if they try and say anything, her faith is immense. She will wipe the floor with them.
I notice how every news story is another "wolf!" cry.
Yes exactly! When the twin towers fell my FIL phoned up my d'ad SIL and said ''you need to get back to meetings, armageddon is coming''.... SIL said to me that we are still here and no big A...
Now you have mentioned ''animal farm'' I want to watch it. It freaked me out last time but I have a desire to really ''watch'' it...
this will be brought under control.
It always is... The dubbies love unrest and drama... They get depressed when it all calms down.
Thuggish people have ALWAYS taken advantage of honest unrest. Even before 1914.
Thugs are thugs and they will never change... They feel that the world owes them... It's all because chavs are allowed to breed. *sigh*
To JWs, today is always worse than yesterday.
And they waste their whole lives waiting for something that is NOT going to happen! They have to be pitied.....
these people need to get a grip for christsakes.
Sad thing is they thing that they are in complete control....
1) The 'old light' they used to believe wholeheartedly and 2) Bad times in the past that they looked on as clear signs of the end of this sytem.
Anytime you mention that to them, you are told the same old drivel.... The light has got brighter, Jehovah knows what he is doing, blah blah blah! It's like they are robots.
I lived through 3 riots, and, I concur, the world still turned.
Are you sure armageddon hasn't come?? I mean three riots!! If it hasn't, armageddon must be soooooo close........ Lol
