Hello to all of u on this site,I've been enjoying reading your
posts for about a mounth now.With your help Ive come a long
way in my knowledge of the bible.U've also showed how
fair I need to come(basically,u've made me feel real
stupid at times)Which is a good thing
Nobody should be made to feel stupid, hannibal, and that is not what most of us intend. But you are right, reading the posts on this board help all of us (except perhaps Fred Hall) to realise how little we know about life, the universe and everything.
It is a humbling experience for exJWs who used to think we had all the answers to find that, in fact, we weren't even allowed to see the questions!
Anyway, welcome to the board, and never forget: whatever anyone says, it's always their OPINION.
Ignorance is not stupidity, hannibal.
We are all new at this thinking for ourselves business!
Loved your tag line.
I'd like to add my welcome to the board (I know you know me!). Sharing in the dialogue out here is sure different than the old org, where you were told what to think, how to think it, when & where to think it, and with whom to think it!
Now we come to have to take responsibility (ohmygawd!) for our own beliefs and thoughts. A little scary, but of course nothing worth feeling stupid about, in any way, shape or form! Best wishes in your "coming out" party, coming out of slavery, that is.
Welcome! I trust you brought some fava beans and a nice chianti? Looking forward to your insights.
