What makes a "good Jehovah's Witness"??
So, I have been thinking...what is the formula or recipe for the "perfect JW"?
Here are a few points I thought of...please feel free to add!
- Always dress in the JW manner...no variation in clothing / hair styles / facial hair
- Answer at least 2 times per meeting
- Do at least 12 hours per month...or more if it is deemed by the elders that your circumstances fit
- Never question anything...either mentally or literally
- Be invloved in all social activities
- Be involved in all working days etc.
- Arrive 20 mins before each meeting, and stay at least 20mins after
Home school your kids.
I know of several families doing that...
Go to your assigned hall even if you have to raise hell with your boss to get the right night off.
Stop preaching to that bilenguil woman and hand over your one and only study to the Spanish speaking KH.
Underline 90% of the words in your Watchtower and circle the cited scriptures in a different color marker.
Turn up the thermostat by one more degree to make sure it's too warm in the KH.
Invite people you never hang out with to go out in field service with you "sometime".
If at all possible, avoid going out in service with people you don't usually hang out with and never ever make definitive plans with them.
Get all the good gossip while out in FS with one of the elders wives.
Tell all the gossip you heard, with some exagerations, to everyone you know.
If you're out in FS and you stop at Star Bucks for less than 15 minutes . . . wait at least another fifteen minutes before leaving.
Drive to your return visits in the longest possible route. NEVER - EVER go to return visits that are near by. Always go to the ones that are furthest away first.
If you go to a door and it seems like someone might actually be home - don't ring the door bell and knock as quitely as you can.
If someone is mowing their lawn - they are clearly too busy to hear your life saving news.
If someone is doing something in their garage - they are clearly too busy to hear your life saving news.
If someone is just getting home or just leaving - pretend like you don't see them.
If someone asks you a question about the Bible you should say "that's a really good question" and say you will do some research and get back to them.
Don't EVER get back to them.
Invite over members of the congregation for dinner (but only families whith dads that are elders).
Its okay to swear in front of an elder since they'll probably just laugh it off.
Don't ever swear in front of a MS - they'll rat you out to the elders who will then feel obligated like they have to do something.
rat on brothers and sisters
stick with the official JW sites
Shun your parents back to faith in the organization
Believe everything they tell u & never question anything they tell u...
I thought I was damaged...but there are some messed up comments here! ( I mean that in a nice way )
keep them coming.......
Obey the elders even if it doesn't make any sense according to worldly standards...
Home school your kids.
I never heard of home schooling among JWs in the UK. Must be an American thing.
Have weak critical thinking skills.
Be naive and quibble.
Have a weak educational background.
Have a regressed intellectual maturity.
...... and lets not forget brand loyalty to the Watchtower Corporation and its designed power structure..
