I happen to run into a couple of elders and one of their bible studies was with them. After we said our formal greetings to each other we caught up on each other’s history. Somehow the conversation took a turn into politics. The bible study was concerned about the upcoming election and is worried the Democrats would take power and change the Country completely with their crazy policies. I expressed concern also to the bible student.
Then one of the elders stepped in the conversation and said;
“Well, as Jehovah’s people we don’t have to worry about that, because Jehovah is going to take care of it very soon with his Kingdom Government”
“Yea but in the meantime we have to live and deal with what’s in front of us, that Kingdom might still be long way off”
Elder tells me;
“See, that’s what happens when you stop coming to the meetings, you lose faith in God’s arrangement and lose all hope and just like the bible says, people start becoming fearful of the things coming up the inhabited earth.”
“I guarantee you that if you start coming back to the meetings, you won’t fear anymore of who takes power and who doesn’t."
“But the first thing you need to do is meet with the elders and just talk to see what you’ve been up to and make sure you are in good standing.”
That just pisses me off. I just said good bye to the bible study and walked away. I don’t even like to talk to JWs because it's just so frustrating and ruins the day.🤐
