At my last meeting I picked up the new Feb 1, 2013 WT. My first reaction was " Is this a joke?" I said so out loud to the literature servant.
So while checking it out and weighing it's pathetic mass in my hand, I noticed something. You may have already seen this, but it was new to me. On page 8 in the article " They wanted me to prove the truth to myself ". It is the story of a young man who became a Mormon. Why? His parents were impressed by the clean- cut, well mannered ministers of the cult religion. As this young man grew up, he enjoyed the social activities and respected the moral values of the Mormons.
This young man had family in the " truth ". He was impressed by the JW's use of the Bible at a convention. His Aunt and Uncle said that he should prove the truth to himself. So his search begins. He was suprised at how little he really knew about Mormon teachings. So he went to the official Mormon web-site. He was disturbed by doctrinal discrepencies.
Here is the quote that jumped out at me. While searching for answers, this young man decides to speak with responsible Church leaders about his questions and doubts. What was he told?
" I was told that the answers to my questions involved mysteries that one day would be solved as the light became brighter "
