00DAD- Like yourself I found out that I too felt a lot less stress when I stopped attending these mind numbing meetings. It really was like we were getting mentally beaten up. I feel so much more free now mentally ! I agree with you that WT leaders and their minions probably do scour the Internet and news reports to use weird experiences to drive home their skewed points to control JW's minds. They love taking information out of context and twisting it to further their WT marketing schemes. It's amazing.
INNERPEACE- Good point. If your 6 year old is wise enough to see that WT Society information makes no sense- what does that tell you about the JW adults who get sucked into it ! ? Incredible.
BOB_NC- Very true. The negativity that prevails at these meetings is so pervasive it saturates in many Witnesses mindsets. I'm so glad I haven't been to one of these marketing sessions in over 9 years. My mind is better off because of it.
BREAKFAST of CHAMPIONS- Exactly. This thread could very well be the BS thread. WT Society is using such weird BS these days to control JW's minds. They will stoop to any means to not lose control of JW's lives. It's insane.
ON THE WAY OUT- It's incredible how insensitive the WT leaders are to individual Witnesses health problems. And the eagle illustration was just lame. I agree with you after the 1995 debacle it behooved Witnesses to start saving for retirement, be glad that you took the hint and did so. For 133 years the WT Society has made a living off of failed expectations and will probably continue to do so. Pretty bizarre.
WHA HAPPENED ? - Love your comments ! Pretty hilarious. I do think the wT Society plays these Witnesses for fools for sure. The level of idiocy in the WT magazines is insane.
HABOOB 48- I'm number 8 on the list of Eagles prey they want to eat ? Ouch ! As a dolphin I better dive back under the water ! LOL ! WT is full of silly writings for sure.
BARROLD bONDS- The kidney story is true ? Pretty weird.
PROBLEMADDICT- Pretty bizarre the eagle and fish scenario. When I used to fish a lot- I had some big fish that tried to drown me too, at least get me wet. LOL !
SSEVENINCHES- Indeed pretty weird them saying Satan uses sickness to break your relationship with God.
SCARY 21- Exactly. Satan is blessing everybody in a material way ! Including the WT Society ! LOL ! Peace out, Mr. Flipper
