Watched rated R movies, dated, drank went to college, spoke my mind
Name Things You Did As A Witness That You Weren't Supposed To Do
I wasn't baptized yet, but as a boy of 10 I pulled a thumbtack out of the butcher paper that covered the benches we sat on and when the large bottomed sister setting next to me came back from the loo, I put it under her butt, point up. I remember a strange thrill when she sat on it and jumped up. I kept my eyes dead ahead, absorbing the spiritual food.
I bashed the Bishop.
I would really try not too, never once mamaged a month, by then it would be going off on its on. (And Iam not talking about when I was asleep).
I bought a two door car (gasp)
I read the Harry Potter books .
I sat through the written review without answering the questions.
I went to meeting wearing a shirt and tie and a suede jacket.
I voted for something at work.
I bought a lottery ticket
I put money in a slot machine in Vegas and won $75.00
Someone wished me a "Happy New Year" and I daringly said "same to you".
i allowed my Boys to be on the swim team and wrestling team all through Jr High and High School despite all the "pursed lips" from the JW relatives.
I began psychiatric outpatient groups to try and deal with my depression. Elders found out....
I read the Harry Potter books. I don't understand why they were condemned but Shakespeare wasn't.
I used to go clubbing which was OK in Spain, elders used to go too.
The worst thing I did though was frequent gay bars. As long as I didn't go there for sex I didn't see how it could be a problem
I was told by an elder that because I went to a bar owned by K.... a (non witness) friend who had a drag act (he was gay too) I was condoning his lifestyle but I have always had gay friends and unless an elder told me point blank not to associate with them I did, and no elder ever did.
I did have a sister tell me quite strongly that it would break Jehovah's heart to hear me say that P....(gay) and a neighbour was my best friend and not Him. I did feel guilty but not enough to end the friendship.
lifted the lid on the contribution box once and helped myself.
Porn, violent games, games with demonic elements, horror games & movies, all sorts of metal music (from heavy to death and trash), cheating on my field service report card, going to meetings with unmarried sisters without chaperones, visiting apostate forums and sites, visiting other religions forums and sites, reading evolutionist scientific material, involving in light petting with a non-witness female (which I guess is almost like fornication).
too much to name
I was a model witness compared to the abovementioned testimonials.. ;-)
