I am happy to see all the warm replies.
Sense my fade I have felt much closer to what I at one time called "worldly" people. They are not the "evil" people I was programed to believe. I have noticed their are many who feel the way we do such as x-mormons and x-catholics. To me it seams x-jws have a closer bond but maybe thats just me. IDK...
I like what Peter said at Acts 10:28, "and he said to them: “YOU well know how unlawful it is for a Jew to join himself to or approach a man of another race; and yet God has shown me I should call no man defiled or unclean."
If only the Watchtower felt that way!!! Somehow they just over look these kinds of scriptures.
Another favorite scripture of mine they never quote is Romans 11:32, "For God has shut them all up together in disobedience, that he might show ALL of them mercy."
1 Corinthians 15:22, "For just as in Adam ALL are dying, so also in the Christ ALL will be made alive."
That is two strong scriptures you will NOT hear the Watchtower comment much at all on! I wonder why???
