Maybe this irked you in the past? I had a hard time convincing--nay, believing--that we lived in such baaaad times.
Jws have the belief that times are bad, so we had the task of convincing the householders of that. And it was stupid!
Compare our times with almost any time in history and it's self-evident, these are better. Large hospitals, stable laws and enforcement, psychologists, books, education, freedoms, etc. etc.
The medevial times seemed LOTS worse, how about the Black Plague?, or being a slave in Rome, or being burned at the stake, or being a slave at any time? You get the drift.
Jws all sit around a gripe about how bad things are, and when, oh when, will the new system get here and relieve us from the pressure? The crime! The wars! The child slaves! The terrorists!
Yet they sit in the most comfortable homes ever lived in, send their kids to free schools, drive nice cars, have easy 8-hr jobs (for the most part), and enjoy the freedoms of their country.
But, they gripe about the government, the stupid ways of "this system," and how only "God can solve the horrible thing of this wicked system."
Never once does it occur to them, what if there is no god and he is not going to rescue humans, they have done nothing but add to the problems by the naysaying, and certainly nothing to solve them.
But let one of THEM need help and, of course, they will avail themselves of welfare, aid from, say, the American Cancer Society, etc. All the while downgrading "this wicked system of things!"
I'm glad to be out of that hypocritical group.
ALL they do to "help" anyone else is pester people at the doors and have the smug, self-righteous attitude of how misled everyone else is. They don't help anyone. They just further the WTBS publishing company's empire.
Any commments? Rebuttals? What freedom! Here, and most other places in free society, we can "agree to disagree."
