    After 1975 came and went, we heard every excuse in the books as to why we didn't get what was promised and talked about for years, "Jehovah has given us a little more time," "we did not agree to serve Jehovah until a certain date, we agereed to serve him forever," "Jehovah is testing us," "Jehovah has given others this opportunity." These quotes may not be exact, but I heard every one of them and more. What a scam !!

    RENEWING THE SPIRIT OF SELF-SACRAFICE......."Jesus encouraged his disciples to be self-sacraficing...What are some ways this is being done by Jesus' disciples today? 1--Sacraficing one's position in the business community by being identified as one of Jehovah's Witnesses 2--Giving up time for meetings and service that could be spent in recreational or materialistic pursuits 3--Entering full-time service 4--Giving up certain worldly entertainment, music, careers 5--Willing to suffer imprisonment 6--Prepared to obey Jehovah's word even if it should incur death. In view of the Bible's encouragement for Christians to be self-sacraficing, ask yourself: 'Am I a self-sacraficing person?'"

    Self sacrifice is a form of self destruction. I'm sure glad i moved out of that mentality. I feel like i'm only just starting to live. A little late, but not too late.
