    Undisfellowshiped, thanks for doing that research. I am going to save it for further reference. In all my years in the truth, I always felt that a good and deep relationship with God was so elusive. I always read the scriptures thinking that they did not really apply to me as a person. The Wt does a real number of the flock by making them feel that they are second class citizen. Only the anointed matter.

    Its only in the last year that I feel my relationship with my creator is stronger than ever. The Bible has come alive because I now know that what I read is for me too. I too am a lamb of value. Thanks again.

    Hi Undis,

    Psalm 23 and John 10 did it for me several years ago. When I read that Jehovah is the Shepherd in Psalms and Jesus calls himself the Good Shepherd in the NWT I was floored. I sang Hallelujah! Seek and you shall find! The Good Lord opened my eyes and I was begining to be free.
