ANOINTED JEHOVAH WITNESS APOLOGIZES
This is the commedy section isn't it?
If you truly believe you're one of the anointed, and still loyal to the organization, my only advice to you is to read Russell's STUDIES IN THE SCRIPTURES. They were written when the heavenly calling was still considered to be the general calling. You can't get them through the WT anymore, but you can order them through one of the Bible Student sites. For example, http//www.divineplan.org . And don't let any of the JWs know you're reading them! Hopefully, this will take the place of having other living anointed ones to associate with.
The WT doesn't want "young anointed" and you'd better get used to going it alone. You are "one born out of due time." (1 Cor. 15:8) Likewise, don't expect us to return to Egypt and live under old Pharaoh! We've already crossed the Red Sea.
I really have to not care what others think about my intentions. I am an active auxilliary pioneer, and if others knew I was on this website it would raise quite a few eyebrows and trouble, but I am risking that to listen to you people.
"He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much." - Luke 16:10
"But be careful that this liberty of yours does not become a hindrance to the weak. For if someone weak sees you who possess knowledge dining in an idol's temple, will not his conscience be 'strengthened' to eat food offered to idols? So by your knowledge the weak brother or sister, for whom Christ died, is destroyed. If you sin against your brothers or sisters in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. For this reason, if food causes my brother or sister to sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I may not cause one of them to sin." - 1 Corinthians 8:9-13
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes. - Jack Handey, Deep Thoughts
you might want to talk to you know, he too believes he has the heavenly hope, and he too is a raving lunatic.
Things are getting better in the org.
Bwwwaaaaaa hahahahahahaa!!!! Whaaaateeevver
wow some of these responses are harsh. lotus i hope you arent offended but if you do some research, reading and listening you will realize that you are being decieved by an organization that is not what it claims to be (ie. gods people). they are a mind control organization (a cult) no different than any other.
the reason people here have been so direct and perhaps even rude to you is because we are all recovering from having spent years, even our whole lives in a cult. its hard to recover and people that come in spouting the stuff you wrote in your post here can make it even harder. the words you write (ie. the 'sheep w/out a shephard' crap) are not your own words from 'you', they are what you have been deeply programmed to say. you dont know that, you'd never believe it in a million years but its true.
no one (or almost no one) here believes that jehovahs witnesses are anything more than what they are (a cult). and you will NEVER convince us of it. so dont bother trying ok?
if you opened your heart and mind and regained control of your own independent thinking ability you would read whats being said, read the proof and realize that you have been decieved all these years. its very sad but its true. we were all decieved. there are ex mormon support groups all over the world for people who left the mormons after being convinced they were the 'only true religion'. we are NO different from them except we didnt have to wear funny clothes.
lotus, you arent annointed. you are brainwashed. break free. think for yourself. why wont they let you read and research? what are they afraid you will find? you came here so you might as well go all the way. order Crisis of Conscience and read it. Learn the truth about the 'truth'.
Please don't feel guilty for seeking truth. We are told by the org. not to search and to just take mans word for everything.
There is nothing wrong with your quest for truth and seeing both sides of a coin. You are wise to be applying the scriptures as to be seeking truth. Sometimes when we find it can shatter many illusions.
Keep in mind that when Jesus was on earth he condemned the religious leaders of his own faith because they were not applying the fruits of the spirit. Jesus thus showed us an important lesson there, that just because they may be in a position of leadership does not make them good leaders or find favor from God.
We are not to put our trust in Nobles or "Man"..So keep this in mind as you are seeking the truth you are looking for, when you find that truth you will know because with it comes an inner peace with no doubts..it won't be overnight, and it may not be easy but the truth is there for the taking and it will set you free.
Welcome to the board!!!
Things are getting better in the org. the light getting brighter and brighter Proverbs 4:18.Oh, please do tell. Does this mean that their policies on blood, shunning, pedophiles, etc., etc., etc., will be changing?
Waiting anxiously for reply. Seriously.
