Dearest Robdar... the greatest of love and peace to you!
Please know that I did nothing special, but only what I "ought" to have done, which is put myself in the other's place: I remember being young... and opinionated (although the latter may still remain - LOL!)... and many times I wish the recipient took a thing the way I MEANT it, versus how it SOUNDED. Actually, that still happens today - LOL! Your dear friend Judas... a mere 20 years old and therefore in many ways a "babe"... perhaps thought it was SAFE to speak his mind... and heart... here at JW.com... versus the LACK of safety in the Borg... and these days... places in the general public.
Those of us who consider ourselves to be so... ummmmm... "wise"... should have looked for his INTENT... versus trying to interpret his perceived "tone": there is pain there, pain we ALL know... and which we ALL know is much more greater at 20, than, say, 30, 40 or 50. I have a 21 son and 25 year old daughter; I also have many friends in their 20's by means of my children. Young people... are... ummmm... a bit more PASSIONATE about what they feel than we are. We USED to be, many of us. But LOVE dictates that rather than malign, we HELP them properly channel that passion... without wrongly feeding it... or entirely destroying it. For both are damaging.
Those who replied to young Judas should have taken his circumstances into account, just as they would want others to take theirs into account. Anything less... is hypocritical.
Again, thank you for your most kind words and may you give the praise to the One who "taught" ME... and to His Father, and my Father, JAH... of Armies. And may the undeserved kindness and mercy of my God and Father, and the peace of His Son and Christ, my Lord, JAHESHUA MISCHAJAH, be upon YOU... if you so wish it... as well upon your young friend, if indeed HE so wishes it... to time indefinite.
YOUR servant and a slave of Christ,
