Why are the witnesses suddenly smiling at me?

    Seems like folks were told they would be held accountable for not being true shepards...or really caring about others.

    Could be they see the writing on the wall. The declining membership in the US and Canada.

    I had gone to visit my parents last month and my mom told me that it is now the goal of the witnesses to do ANYTHING they can to bring back those that have left the "truth". I'm not sure if this next thing was announced from the platform or if it is something that came through the society to the elders (my dad is a ms). They are told to make reinstatement as easy and quick as they can make it. I can't remember her wording so I will only paraphrase it. She said that especially since 9/11 they are more aware of how close they are to the end and that they need to make it as easy as possible to get as many people back before armageddon. *gag*

    Ok people, for those of you who dont know...

    Yes something IS changing in the watchtower society
    and JW religion. The same thing that happens with
    EVERY religion. For a time, a little over one
    hundred years or so, all new religions (which
    are really old religions rehashed) are entitled
    to FRINGE RELIGION status. They can be odd,
    and do things that others think are downright
    strange. Eventually however they lose their
    entitlement to being a FRINGE RELIGION. When
    this happens they have to move into the main stream.
    They may keep a hold on some odd doctrines,
    look at christianity if you want an example
    of stupid, supercilious doctrines. But they
    have to start ACTING like the rest of society.

    This is what is happening with Jehovahs Witnesses.
    You can think it is loss of membership, or
    that you, the apostates are having some effect
    on defeating this big bad evil monster, or that
    'god' (god grr cant you say GODDESS since ALL life
    proceeds from the female, this is a known fact)
    or that 'god' is finally doing something about
    this unchristian christian wannabe sect. But you
    are mistaken. It is nothing so complicated.
    Their time as a fringe religion has run out and
    now other fringe groups will take over, like
    Scientologists, ICOC (International Churches
    of Christ, not to be confused with Church of
    Christ), and my own personal favorite (in fact
    my own creation I being the founder of this
    particular cult) The Church Of The UN( that is UN
    as in UN-Believer, UN-lettered, UN-learned, NOT
    United nations).

    Now the next thing I have to say is of even
    greater importance. We need as a group to
    demand links to BETTER pictures. As far as I
    can tell butalbee sorta looks like a hottie.
    But for all I know she might not even be a broad,
    she could be a dude. In which case I will be
    questioning seriously my sexuality. But,
    if the profile pics were larger, then I could
    lust easier over her pic, if indeed she really
    is a she.

    Speaking of which go to http://profiles.yahoo.com/hyghlandyr
    and then click on VIEW MY PHOTOS and you can see
    photos of me.


    thanks so much for explaining to this hard--core apostate --- WILL some apostates really fall for their tactics and go BACK -- no kidding???

    Perhaps because they took one too many Prozac tablets that morning. All of them. Simultaneously.

    They did this, you see, because they've just been informed that the Society has decided to bring back the 8-day long Convention program.

    I'm sure glad we don't vote anymore like we did before we got the truth. Now we get to complain about everything ALL the politicians do!

    highlanderyr, You can get a poster of butalbee here:

    You really think that's her pic........and they assert at the KH that the penis maintains extra brain cells.lol

    Crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

  • SYN

    Has anyone ever heard an Elder or anyone of a higher rank say something like that? Was there an Awake or Watchtower article on it? Because that would be absolute XJW gold!

    I'm sure glad we don't vote anymore like we did before we got the truth. Now we get to complain about everything ALL the politicians do!
