and show you what the next generation of Witnesses can be.
Is this more "NEW LIGHT?" With the end so near, how can there even be a "Next Generation?"
Yes, Lotus, many here are hurting. Why? Each has their own story and all are Watchtower related. I became a JW because I sincerely believed them to be different and a loving people. I found out different. Their love is totally conditional, if you receive it at all. Every congregation I went to had it's little cliques and they let no one else in. Elders set out to create a reason to hold JCs and DF people, always claiming to purify the congregation. Yet, if the truth be known, these same elders are guilty of more wrongdoing than most.
When blatant violations of even the elkders manual occur and the sanctity of ones home, it does no good to inform the society. The only action they take, if any at all, is to ask the offensive elder his view and close the book. Then, send out a shine on letter encouraging one to just pray to jehovah and get out in service and attend meetings. Never mind the unchristian conduct of an elder in your home is what is keeping you from doing it.
As stated before, I do not totally disagree with the JW theology, but Jesus said the sign of his true disciple was the love they had, not their theology. With little or no love from the JWs, they cannot be the true disciples of Christ.
If God's Spirit is filling a Kingdom Hall, how is it that Satan can manuever the ones within that Kingdom Hall at the same time?
