I was just thinking that the 'goodness' JW's display doesn't necessarily have to be 'pure' goodness, if u know what I mean.
I mean they become so obsessed and dependant on the WTS telling them what they can, can't, should, shouldn't, will, and wont do that they no longer make 'pure' judgements for themselves. Even if what the WTS is 'good, christian advice', as long as they're not deciding to do it themselves, it loses the righteousness that making decisions, good and bad, is all about.
It's like having really domineering parents who tell u exactly what to do, u do it through fear, not through the will to do good, u don't learn, u only learn to obey.
FORCED TO BE GOOD??!!?!?
Are you making the "righteous" man, "good" man distinction?
I'm not trying to differentiate between 'righteous' and 'good' I was just displaying my vast vocabulary, hehehe.
I think u can substitute one word for the other, in my post, anyway.
