Please don't be turned off because this is rather creepy and has "reference" only to the occult. Because the information was found on a website that I got from a post on this forum. I was curious. The site is a documentation by a gentleman with a long history of being a JW. His story is in book form and goes chapter by chapter, and his stories are not that unfamiliar to us here. He has been "out" and has composed lots of good, valuable information.
Here is the site: http://www.bigwig.net/knots/nightmares/home.htm
Anyway, I'm really reading some good stuff, especially chapter three where he goes on to list all the things a JW has to remember at all times in order to be "faithful". He says there are over 1,400 of these items, but he only listed a few. He reminds us that the written "laws" of JW's are very different from the verbally expressed "conditions" of acceptance. Very, very good.
Then I move on to his chapter 19. In here he makes reference to the fact that he has proof and documentation that in his own words (found on pages 4-6): "...I realized that this guy knows a lot more about the history of the witnesses than others. ...He said 'let me show you something'.....at which I looked in amazement and could not believe my eyes......'What do you see there, he asked?' I looked and suddenly it hit me, I see a face in the palm of the hand in one of the illustrations---what on eath is that doing there, I asked, what is it?" More symbols were disclosed to him. Once he saw them, he could not imagine that it was actually true, but the evidence was in his hands. "....horns on the top of the letter 'S' for Satan."
"More and more pictures were shown to me. ....a face of what appeared to be a Greek god Jupiter....he then refered me to a reference book by Derek Barefoot, a man who had done an in-depth study on JW's and the occult."
So he purchased the book himself and found out for himself that there are on record pages of references to Occult imagery in the WT publications, now going back some twenty years!
These images are outlined in his information and he is very specific. Has anyone on this forum ever heard of this before? The reason why I ask, is that in a really odd sort of way, it does make lots of sense. I mean, the mind control and everything...There is much more you can read there, but I had to stop and come here to ask the question on the Forum.
My friends, we are talking about "signs of Satan" here, hidden inside the photographs used in the JW literature. This is very sinister I think. I asked my husband, (not religious-not JW) if he thought this might very well be true, and he said "absolutely". It is just another reason to understand why "they" have so much control over people.
Now, I'm not into the Occult. I know some things about it. I know enough to stay away from it.....To me it is at the other end of Goodness.
What do you think about all this? Could this really be true?
